Acclaimed Broadway dancer and director Wakefield Poole created a sensation when he and producer Marvin Shulman four-walled the 55th Street Playhouse in New York City and released the gay adult feature BOYS IN THE SAND in 1971.

Set in the Fire Island Pines and starring Casey Donovan in three sexual vignettes, BOYS IN THE SAND changed gay men's lives, made Fire Island an international tourist destination and introduced straight audiences to gay sex in a positive and beautifully shot way.

Poole began experimenting with Super 8 and 16mm film the year prior to releasing BOYS IN THE SAND and this DVD presents four surviving short films:

"Andy" - Poole's dizzying look at an Andy Warhol retrospective
"A Gift" - a Fire Island-shot precursor to Boys in the Sand
"Head Film" - an experimental and humorous rainy day romp
"Vittorio" - a stop-motion cutout animated film

Both BOYS IN THE SAND and "Andy" have been newly re-scanned and restored from the best available elements. The other short films are presented here for the first time on DVD.

No, we only ship inside the US

Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.

We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.


All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.

Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.

Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.

If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.


We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
