It’s a Gay Essential:
This 1964 drama film is cantered on the adventures of a gay motorcyclist from London. Directed by Sidney J. Furie, the British motion picture stars Colin Campbell, Rita Tushingham and Dudley Sutton. The Leather Boys is based on a novel by Gillian Freeman that was commissioned by Anthony Blond.
“The Leather Boys is a real slice of working-class life, a lesser-known product of the British New Wave which deserves greater recognition.”
— 20/20 Movie Reviews
“The stark black-and-white photography helps bring out the bleak working class existence of the characters and the variety of locales used including a nicely captured cross country motorbike race make the story captivating and believable.”
“Of course, in 1964, how many films were dealing with homosexuality without resorting to hilarious stereotypes? Despite the unintentionally salacious title, “The Leather Boys” is a very interesting look into English life in the ’60’s.”
— Charles T. Tatum, Jr.
