...In The Name of Leather

Director: Mac Larson (1982) (aka Joe Gage)

After having made some very successful gay porno films (often called ground-breaking, "classic", etc), (Kansas City Trucking Co., El Paso Wrecking Corp. , L.A. Tool & Die, etc.) Joe Gage was losing interest in doing this kind of work. But P M Productions approached him wanting some quick turn-around films to help fill their ever-growing need to provide new material for porno theatres in the early 80's. The money was good, but Gage (a pseudonymn) decided to use a new pseudonym for these films, as he felt they weren't given his usual time and attention for which he had grown famous, and hence the name Mac Larson was born. He made 6 films under this name, this one happens to have my favorite trailer. Daniel Holt (not one of my favorites, but it's hard to ignore his thick, ahem, talent) portrays a porno actor being interviewed about his porn work and new leather accessory business, and during the interview, the host imagines Holt, and others, using the various items.
