BOYS OF VENICE

director: William Higgins (1979)
Starring: Eric Ryan, Kip Noll, Emanuelle Bravos, Clay Russell, Butch McAllister, Derrick Stanton, Johnny Stone, Jimmy Young, Scott Taylor, and Darla Lee (non-sex role).

Higgins is not one of my favorite directors, (his too-close close-ups annoy me) but I love this film. Of course the Munich Machine's disco version of Whiter Shade of Pale is a highlight, but I also love all the establishing shots of people on the beach, the rollerskaters, the groups of old ladies waving at the camera, Darla Lee in her Joan Collins outfit, discovering her husband with Eric Ryan (still clothed, but once she calls him a homo and leaves, it puts the idea into their head), the bathroom stand-up fuck with Ryan and Derick Stanton where they both have their skates still on - all these little touches. This clip, however, is just Scott Taylor having a bit of fun with his huge schlong. (Anyone who feels he can fill Scott's, er, shoes, for a remake of this scene, email me NOW!) You can see why Al Parker used him in several of his movies ( Flashbacks, Turned On! and Strange Places, Strange Things)- always solo, as far as I remember.
And yes, I am selling a VHS copy of the movie on eBay.
