Nude Hollywood and Vintage Gay Porn

How much wood could Chuck Connors chuck if Chuck Connors could chuck wood?

Were we really that innocent back in the 1960's? Didn't anyone see the humor, yet alone the homosexual subtext in this publicity photo from the old "Rifleman" series? Or maybe some evil queen in the Art Department with a devilish streak knowlingly chose that photo just to see if anyone noticed. If the photo itself isn't enough, read the caption: "A myterious bag holds the secret to an outlaw's past and a threat against Lucas and Mark McCain." Well, it took 40 years and some wacky bloggers to unearth this vintage gem. Are you sporting wood yet?

What makes it even more interesting is there has been a persistant rumor about he-man actor Chuck Connors appearing in a gay porn "stag" movie back in the 1950's. No one has been able to verify it, and since Chuck Connors is long-ago deceased, he's not telling. Back in the 1970's there were a lot of "discovered" porn movies featuring celebrities, most of which were fake. In one of those compliations called "Hollywood Blue", Ed Halter in story from the Village Voice entitled, "Secrets and Thighs - A history of celebrity sex tapes, real and fake, from Joan Crawford to Paris Hilton", says, "Another gay stag is rumored to show B-actor Chuck Connors, of '50s TV series The Rifleman, although reports vary on the actual contents of the film." I've seen a frame grab from that supposed Rifleman porn, but I cannot seem to find it right now, and it sure looked like a young Chuck Connors to me.

I did discover the photo on the right from a magazine called "Hollywood Rated X". This photo of actor Johnny Crawford, who played Chuck Connor's son, Mark on Rifleman is a legit, verifiable nude photo taken from the opening sequence of 1970's Sci Fi classic "Andromeda Strain".

I love vintage gay porn, especially when it ties in with Hollywood gossip! And speaking of vintage gay porn, here is my list of the best vintage resources:
