Continuing BUTT’s tribute to one of the unsung, great granddaddies of gay porn, Peter de Rome, we present ‘Underground’. The short film, in which a hippy and a young executive cruise each other and screw around on the NYC subway, is probably Peter’s best-known film.
The remarkable guerrilla-style short came about in 1972, when porn producer Jack Deveau was helping Peter de Rome transfer some of his 8mm films to 16mm for a wider theatrical release. Jack persuaded Peter to spice up his mostly softcore collection of short films with a couple new ones, and Peter had had the idea to film a sex act on a crowded subway train.
Surrounded by real commuters — and real cops patrolling the stations and trains — they spent the whole day shooting, from the early morning rush hour until three or four A.M. the next day. WATCH THE SHORT FILM HERE!
