New York: Garrick Theatre: 1970. Offset flyer printed to recto and verso. 8 1⁄2 x 11 in. Very good; edge toning and lines from folding. Item #5814
Flyer for Stan Lopresto’s 1970 Fire Island film Sticks and Stones, which documents a July 4th party thrown by Peter and Buddy, lovers in a strained relationship. Partygoers include leather queen George, a hippie known as “the Lavender Guru;” nervous newcomer Bobby; and Fernando, a biker boy with a new Prince Albert piercing. Sticks and Stones is often described
as a low-budget Boys in the Band. This flyer advertises the opening of the Rated X film on Monday January 12, 1970, at the Garrick Theatre on Bleecker Street. Simply incredible queer summer vibes.
