Flashback Friday – 1974: Jack Deveau’s Avant-Garde Gay Porn Cult Classic “DRIVE” (1974) – Video

DRIVE

 

Jack Deveau, whose Hand in Hand Films are generally considered to be some of the finest produced all-male skin flicks in the 1970’s second feature DRIVE was the largest-scale gay porn production of its time and perhaps ever.

The plot concerns Arachne, played by co-writer Christopher Rage (of Hollywood Babylon fame under the psuedonym “Mary Jim Sstunning”) attempting to steal a secret formula that would destroy the sex drives of all men, in an effort to “free all men, liberate them as I am liberated, unshackle them from the bonds of their carnal drive and elevate them to a higher way of life.” (Sounds like some castrating trans-activists we know today.)

It is at once a madcap homage to sci-fi B movies of the 1950s, a vehicle for presenting hardcore sex in novel ways, and a strong statement about repression in the age of sexual liberation. With its colorful graphics, special effects,

Drive featured a cast of over 50 actors, a plot, motorcycles, and gorilla suit and is an an avant-garde gay porn cult classic that must be seen to be believed.
