Rough Trades -Hand In Hand Films

Rough Trades (1977) director: Jack Deveau. After some criticism of too much plot and not enough sex in his films, this was Jack’s answer: A film involving “blue collar” guys having sex with each other, and the owner of a New York penthouse that they are working on. Featured Hugh Allen, David Gorsky, Myles Longue (aka Ed Wiley), Bobby Cruz, Rit Young, and Steve Dory.

Jack Deveau was the president of Hand In Hand Films, probably the most acclaimed and best regarded “all-male cast” studio in the 1970’s.
