|Description||L.A. Tool & Die is a 1979 American pornographic film directed by Tim Kincaid, better known as Joe Gage. It is the concluding film in what has come to be known as Gage's "Working Man Trilogy", the first two being 1976's Kansas City Trucking Co. and 1978's El Paso Wrecking Corp. (1978). It stars Richard Locke and features Will Seagers and Paul Barresi in a heterosexual scene with Becky Savage. Michael Kearns, who has appeared in mainstream films and television series such as The Waltons, has a cameo role in an orgy scene; a rare instance of a "legitimate" actor performing explicit sex acts in a hardcore pornographic film.
John Burger, the author of One-Handed Histories: The Eroto-Politics of Gay Male Video Pornography, describes the film as "the story of an unrequited love, in which Richard Locke follows the man of his dreams across the country. They eventually live happily ever after." Burger adds that this film came at the very end of the pre-AIDS filmmaking, when "all levels of erotic experience were faithfully documented by the porn industry... men could be whores, men could be monogamous or men could cruise the spectrum in between."
The guys here - over 20 in the cast, with some going merely under the moniker of "The Gage Men" - sport hair, beards, mustaches and the hairy torsos - and sleazy attitudes - of the times. Nearly every fuck (condomless, too) ends in a facial or cum-gobbling splatathon that had me hitting rewind almost immediately to see it again. They truly don't make 'em like this anymore.
Cast: Richard Locke, Will Seagers, Paul Baressi, Bob Blount, Casey Donovan, Michael Kearns, Johnny Falconberg, Dan Pace, The Gage Men
