The Early Films of Wakefield Poole, featuring BOYS IN THE SAND (1971):
Acclaimed Broadway dancer and director Wakefield Poole created a sensation when he and producer Marvin Shulman four-walled the 55th Street Playhouse in New York City and released the gay adult feature BOYS IN THE SAND in 1971.

Set in the Fire Island Pines and starring Casey Donovan in three sexual vignettes, BOYS IN THE SAND changed gay men's lives, made Fire Island an international tourist destination and introduced straight audiences to gay sex in a positive and beautifully shot way.

Poole began experimenting with Super 8 and 16mm film the year prior to releasing BOYS IN THE SAND and this DVD presents four surviving short films:
"Andy" - Poole's dizzying look at an Andy Warhol retrospective
"A Gift" - a Fire Island-shot precursor to Boys in the Sand
"Head Film" - an experimental and humorous rainy day romp
"Vittorio" - a stop-motion cutout animated film

Both BOYS IN THE SAND and "Andy" have been newly re-scanned and restored from the best available elements. The other short films are presented here for the first time on DVD.
