Just one of 41 different videos in Bob Mizer's original 1980s Spanking series.
Rick Spencer is the young hood, Alan Wall is the cop and Darryl Summers is the sergeant (who just happened to be bathing at the time the cop brings in the hood to book him). This is slapstick comedy. If you have ever watched a booking in a jail such as Los Angeles you have no doubt noticed how some of the procedures might lend themselves to humor such as the all-too-personal frisking operation, mugging (identification photo taking), fingerprinting (our hood rubs his ink smeared hands on the cops uniform), and other bits of business. Naturally the whole affair resolves into a brawl.
BOB HOLLAND and BILL O'NEILL play the roles of two hoodlum cyclists who drive their cycle right into a poker game being played by three other youths. After a brief scuffle the intruders are allowed to join the game. With Bob acting as his schill, Bill soon wins all of the other boys' money and then begins to win their clothing too. When one boy is about to have to give up his last garment, a jock strap, he becomes suspicious and jumps Bill and finds a card up Bill's sleeve. The other angry boys join and they strip Bill of all his clothes finding cards stashed everywhere. Bob tries to get the cycle started so they can get away, but the other boys get all of their clothing and money back. The two hoodlums are allowed to escape (clad only in underwear) on their cycle and they flee down the street.
Guard Bob Wilson brings new fish (Dale Hall) into cell of bully convict (Eddie Stevens.) Eddie rides the new fish, does whatever he can to make life miserable for him, resist all overtures to be friendly, until Dale rebels fights Ed and wins and becomes new boss of the cell.
Originally a special order made a standard release in 1971.
Joe Spencer is in female attire working in a bar to get unwary sailors and others to spend their money on extra drinks, a not uncommon practice. Rick Spencer as a sailor comes into the bar and the B-girl immediately coaxes him to buy "her" a drink which he does, and this eventually leads to dancing. During the dancing the culprit tries to slip Ricks wallet out of his pocket, but the sailor is not as asleep as he pretends to be. He exposes the falsity of the B-girl's costume and they engage in a real rough and tumble fight. We had no sponge rubber pads on the floor for this show and the wrestling get quite hectic. Shot in an actual bar in Los Angels, the film has a truer ring than many of our other films, though most people say it is not as impressive as Apollo International's "The Vice and the Badge" also shot in a bar, and entered in the Cannes Film Festival. Some of our detractors have suggested that our film should also be entered in a Can, but we'll just forget the type of can they suggested.
Angel Lopez is a sailor hitchhiking a ride and Neon Koper is a motorcyclist who picks him up. Neon stops the cycle by a store to do an errand and when he comes out he find the sailor trying to make off with the cycle. He and the sailor battle and the sailor's thin white uniform is soon tore to shreds though Neon's tougher Levi's hold up during the fierce battle. But Angel winds and is able to tie Neon's hands behind him, and he pulls off the latter's Levi's, which he quick puts on and make off on the cycle. Neon is able to free himself just in time to see the sailor starting off on the cycle, thumbing his nose at him. He has learned the hard way not to trust hitchhikers.
Some laborers are digging a trench when they get thirsty and one brings the hose over so they can drink, but "accidentally" splashes it on the others. Soon there is a water fight and when the water mixes with the dirt, this turns into a mud fight which progresses in increasing fury until the foreman comes up the scene. This is a very mild plot, but the film has lots of action.
This mudfight occurred in the hole being dug for the pool that showed up in so many films. One additional uncredited performer.
Jim Paris is the "delicate" young prisoner thrown in with a bunch of hardened convicts who take a delight in making life miserable for him. However, he turns out to be quite capable of raking care of himself. Stafford and Coffey are type-cast in their roles as convicts.
Filmed in Mexico.
Street Fight has a documentary quality. It is a cold factual drama based on a fight caused by the theft of a wallet. There is no time out for flexing but bodies are displayed in rugged, natural tensions. Actual enmity existed between the two actors which adds to realism.
George Savage plays the part of a young knife wielding hoodlum who attempts to steal the wallet of sailor Bob Saputo who turns out to be no pus over. Their battle takes them fromt he street into an alley and ultimately into a high-walled yard. As each gets the wallet he tries to hide it in his clothes and as a result both fellows get their clothes torn off. While trying to choke Bob with his own trousers, George accidentally falls back on his switch blade knife. Bob is compassionate and helps him get to doctor.
RICHARD KLEINE plays the role of a young bodybuilder who is thrown into reform school. Being a progressive institution boys are permitted a few belongings and Dick has brought dumbbells and cables to keep up his build, but the other boys ridicule him when he attempts to use them. The big bully of the group tears Dick's muscle pinup photo from the wall and when /dick defies him, Dick is forced to shine the shoes of every boy in the dormitory. The next day in the shower, the bully forces Dick to wash his feet and then as a reward plants a heel in his rum and sends him sprawling. The angry bodybuilder has had enough and they brawl. In spite of dirty tactics by the bully, the bodybuilder wins and from then on everything is different in the dorm. All the boys now read physique books instead of girlie books, do their exercises regularly etc.
Stars Doug Scott as the hood and Rick Spencer as the policeman who interrupts the hood's nefarious activities.
This is a very simple story of a convict trying to steal a cowboy's clothes, but the latter takes pity on him when he sees welts on the convicts back and so he give him a break.
Rather lethargic type.
Naked posing in front of 'rocks'.
Those who like endo-mesomorphs will appreciate his build!
Just to make things confusing there seems to have been an R-34 and an R-43 film of Ray Robirds. Neither is mentioned in the same source so it can look like a typo.
Looks like this one was shot on the same 'tiki' set that White Captive was shot. This is a free hanging solo.
Slender athlete with pleasing quality.
In the history of gay porn, soft or hardcore, one name stands above all others when it comes to defining how the genre would be shaped: Bob Mizer, who founded Athletic Model Guild in 1945 and compiled more than a million color and black-and-white photos of over 10,000 male models in various stages of dress, and undress. As time went on, he became more adventurous, proceeding to the famous G-string and pouch photos, and then to softcore photo sets and films featuring model wannabees and guys picked up off the street acting out their own fantasies, or their actual lives.
"Story Films Classics: The Wild Ones!" (1957-1973) is a compilation of some of the best softcore movies and solo posing shoots in the AMG files. As a child of the 1950s and 1960s, I can tell you that I remember every one of these as still shoots, and I could hardly breathe while watching so many of them come to life. No, there is no nudity -- but the "innocence of suggestion" in the way these ordinary, but beautiful and well-built men, look at and touch each other, how they wear their clothes, will bring memories cascading back to those who grew up during these times, and may even turn on some whose only knowledge of gay porn begins with the condoms-only era.
The way the cops look at the street tough while they frisk him and eventually strip in "Booking of the Hood" (1962), will tease you into erection, though, oddly, the hectic pace and darkness of the alley compromises an enjoyment of "Strip Poker" (1962). The massage and wrestling sequences in the 1961 "Cellmates," will leave you wondering how long the actual sex between these two guys lasted after the camera went off. Angel Lopez plays a hitchhiking sailor in a revealing uniform in the 1958 "Motorcycle Thief" with biker Neon Koper, a gorgeous hunk, catching him in the act of trying to steal it. Their fight, complete with knife and subtle crotch-grab, ends with Angel rides off with the bike. The 1965 "Travelers and Thieves" may be the most exciting for those who know which ones went on to early porn careers, because it features Monte Hanson, one of the real stunners who made his way into early porn with ease. He and Bob Jackson, both brunet beauties, play Mexican road thieves who help blond gods Ernie Mathews and Everett Lee Jackson change a flat tire in the desert. As a reward they get a trip to the beach where they strip to their posing straps and frolic. It's all innocent, even after Monte and Bob try to steal their hosts' money while they are in the ocean, only to suffer a nasty defeat in the sand.
A highlight among the solos is John Davidson, a marine who developed a cult following in the late 1960s with some posing stills and this innocent video. He's brush cut, cute as a button, and hot as hell.
This is one of the more pleasurable experiences I've had in the reviewing game -- it's worth a look from anyone interested in the genre, and a must-see for anyone who has even the vaguest memory of how things used to be.
DVD features: Chapters (divided into easy-to-navigate chapters for each story and solo, complete with bios, written by Mizer, and other fascinating information on the models and the life and times of Bob Mizer); galleries; and no regional coding (playable worldwide).
