1984's Bordello Studs revisits 1884


Kurt Williams with hairy Michael Braun
This all-color magazine featured gents who performed in the 1984 film Gold Rush Boys.  The movie remains distinctive for several reasons, not the least of which were the lush ornate Victorian era sets used, framed within a vintage gingerbread-style mansion.  The production crew even used period costumes for the performers.  These images, of a thickly-bearded blonde man being serviced by another gent in a fancy Victorian parlour room, remain popular on the Internet today, even among fans who were not yet born when the movie and magazine originally came out.  This Steve Scott film stands the test of time, as does its stars.
This movie was distributed back in 1984, a time when actual 'film makers' were still creating a lot of erotic smut in the business, bringing creative story lines and scripts to their craft.  While the fantasy plot may be typical smut in both nature and delivery, Gold Rush Boys is a reminder of how high production values used to be.  Men like Steve Scott were true cinematographers who strived to deliver a quality product.

Casting reflects another notable feature that is oftentimes all-too missing today, as the film uses men who are not all youthful gym twinks.  These masculine (and naturally hairy) guys offer a visual treat.  The sex action is all pre-condom and shot with some wonderful camerawork.  And there are nine full sex scenes filled with lots of action.  Directed by Steve Scott, it starred Kurt Williams, Mike Braun, Ben Barker, Nick Jarrett, Joe Reeves, Rick Faulkner, Lee Adams, Jay Cole, Brian Nichols, Paul Monroe,  and Jim King. 

As the film notes: "In 1849 San Francisco all that glitters isn't gold, but what a rush! In the good old days when California's gold miners had pouches heavy with nuggets and bulges that were even heavier still, Kincaid's was the most popular place to be...in a world without women and filled with sex-starved men. Here, '49ers could get anything they wanted in a house of boys who aimed to please, and did just that. When innocent Kurt Williams shows up looking for work and passes Kincaid's (Braun's) test, he's hired on the spot and joins the house's stable of fresh eager to please boys-for-hire."
