Captain Lust (1977): The Unpublished Photographs

Captain Lust (1977): The Unpublished Photographs

Beau Buchanan‘s Captain Lust (1977) was one of the most expensive, troubled, ambitious, and entertaining adult films made in New York in the 1970s.

Beau’s remarkable life story was told in a recent interview, and the convoluted story of the making of ‘Captain Lust’ was told in a Rialto Report podcast.

We recently came across a collection of previously unpublished photographs taken on the set of the film – which we present here for the first time. The quality of pictures reflects their age, but nonetheless provides a fascinating view of what it was like on set.

With thanks to Steven Ziplow.

    The amount of new artifacts that you are able to uncover is remarkable. These photographs are rather amazing, timeless, strange, unusual, joyful, and insightful. Thank goodness you are around to save, preserve, and exhibit these!

    I would love to hear your interview with Nancy Dare – a talented actress, dancer, and comedienne.

    Nancy – are you out there??

    Rarely have we ever been accorded such a behind the scenes view of a 70s adult film. These pictures are an incredible record. Thanks for sharing them

    At the end of the podcast on Captain Lust, you said that the original negatives had been found, and there was talk about a release through Vinegar Syndrome. Do you know what came of this?
