Before Jeff Stryker and Michael Lucas, Jack Wrangler was the number one name in gay porn and his wild, unpredictable career and life is recounted in this can’t-miss documentary. With piercing blue eyes, unruly blond hair, a chiseled physique and cocky swagger, Jack Wrangler was the king of ‘70s gay porn. Forging a gay sexual revolution, he wasn’t the typical object of homoerotic desire but an intelligent, full-bodied, self-confident stud. Exulted for his 80-plus adult films, the openly gay superstar even conquered the straight adult world and legitimate theater. And off-screen his life was equally sensational – at 33 he married 55-year-old songstress Margaret Whiting. Packed with rare footage, celebrity interviews, and witty commentary by Wrangler himself, this is an unfiltered portrait of an iconoclast who broke all the rules. “Entertaining! The tales of the glory days of sex, fun, and liberation are too juicy to disregard.” – The Village Voice
