SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE BATHS (1975) Set of 7 photos


[New York: Buckley Brothers Films, 1975]. Set of seven (7) vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white photos. Some scattered staple holes, overall near fine.

An exceedingly scarce set of photos from this gay American feature film. Parish 213: “Set at the Continental Baths, New York City’s (in)famous gay bath house, the low-budget feature was co-produced by Steve Ostrow the club’s owner who plays himself in this independent release… A highlight… is the cabaret scenes… where female impersonators cavort as Shirley Bassey, Judy Garland, Carmen Miranda and Diana Ross” (one of these photos depicts a performer in the cabaret).

The film, which had a small theatrical release, had a basically sex-positive vibe, and it is a relic from a period of gay liberation, long before the AIDS catastrophe hit.
