The Nostalgia Collection offers up a six-disc compilation of underground gay cult classics

Fans of underground gay erotica won’t want to miss this amazing new collector’s set from cult filmmaker Toby Ross.

The Nostalgia Collection includes six sexually-explicit films which take a look back at bygone eras while celebrating male beauty. This new six-disc set includes the films Bill Eld: American Pop Culture IconCruisin’ 57Rock n Roll Dreams, Paper DreamsToby Ross and the ’70s and Once in a Blue Moon.

Originally released in 1975, Cruisin’ 57 is the only adult film to have played in the Pop Montreal Festival to a packed house with a full live band. Michael Muni tells of his crushes and flings as he finds his school a bedrock of erotic fantasies. We get the car hops, the cloths, the one-liners and those clean-cut, baby-faced, all-American boys.

Paper Dreams depicts the golden age of the gay adult magazine industry between 1966 and 1973. In that window of time, thousands of men posed for photographers to make some quick cash. They shined brightly and briefly before fading away, but some of their stories are told here.

In the documentary Toby Ross and the ’70s, the director himself tells the real story behind casting and producing his theatrical features from the 1970’s against the backdrop of a jubilant San Francisco. In Bill Eld: American Pop Culture Icon, he focuses on his muse for an emotional docudrama that tells the life story of one of the industry’s sexiest men.

Rock’n’roll Dreams is an erotic time travel story that follows a young guitar player auditioning for a very lascivious Phil Spector and a Berkley teacher preaching love not war. Finally, in Once in a Blue Moon, offers up a series of thoughtful, erotic and often deeply romantic vignettes.

The Nostalgia Collection will be available on DVD starting September 27th. Check out the cover below and click here to pre-order your copy.

Get two restored gay cinema classics in the new set Two Films by Arthur J. Bressan, Jr.

No other filmmaker better embodied the spirit of the gay liberation movement than Arthur J. Bressan, Jr. (the director behind films like Buddies and Gay USA).

A true pioneer of queer cinema, his films fearlessly blurred the boundaries between the artistic, the erotic and the cinematic – and never so clearly as with his first two narrative films, the critically-acclaimed Passing Strangers and Forbidden Letters. Altered Innocence and the Bressan Project are proud to present these two landmarks of early queer cinema, newly restored in 2K from their original film elements with a host of new bonus features.

In Passing Strangers, a closeted gay teenager (Robert Adams) finds love, community and a political awakening when he decides to answer a personal ad from an older, jaded man (Robert Carnagey). One of cinema’s first coming out stories, Passing Strangers is a romantic portrait of gay liberation-era San Francisco that still resonates today.

Lead actor Robert Adams returns in Forbidden Letters as Larry, a man trying to pass time on the day his older lover Richard (Richard Locke) is set to be released from prison. Unable to clear his head through casual sex, he reads through his letters to Richard – letters he could never send out of fear that his outing would lead to a harsher sentence. As Richard’s release draws nearer, the question remains: will the spark still be there when he gets out?

Special features include audio commentaries, interviews with Robert Adams and various queer film historians, five early short films by Bressan (on the Blu-ray only), print materials, photo galleries, theatrical trailers, a twenty-page booklet featuring writing by Bressan and an essay by queer trans film critic Caden Mark Gardner (Blu-ray only) and much, much more.
