BJ's Favorite Gay Porn Directors

All these men worked in film in the 1970's and/or early 80's. Some went on to work in video, as well. While some of these films I am just now discovering, most were up on that big screen at the Bijou Theatre on Wells St in Chicago, when i was young; or later, at the Jewel Theatre on 3rd Ave, in New York City (young, but not as young!) I keep adding as I uncover new tidbits, or have the time to edit, etc.

Arthur Bressan, Jr.
Only a few films, all high-quality, plus 3 other well-received non-porn films

Arch Brown
A very prolific director, his films spread from the early 70's and into the video era of the mid 80's

Peter De Rome
Just a handful of films, all good!

Tom DeSimone (Lancer Brooks)

the "master of narrative gay porn" and head of Hand In Hand Films; a fantastic filmmaker!
