STUDIO 2000's latest
release,Tailspin, is set toward
the end of the 1950's and is the story of two guys, one from an affluent family and one from poverty. It all happens during that wonderful summer that follows high school graduation, and it's about cars, hangouts, love, music, group loyalty, pain, loss, growing up and, of course, it's about sex-way back then. If, when you watch Tailspin, you're reminded a bit of American Graffiti or of The Outsiders, that isn't an accident, for the video draws on these landmark films as well as personal experiences. We've been there and we've done that. Tailspin is the story American Graffiti couldn't tell, showing the things that The Outsiders didn't dare to show.
STUDIO 2000 exclusive and hot young superstar-in-the-making Jeff White has the Ron Howard role in Tailspin. And his is an uncanny performance.
Playing opposite Jeff, in a variation of a Matt Dillon character, is Ethan Marc. This actor is new to the world of xxx-rated video, with only a couple of shows behind him. Marc brings a sexual power to his performance that will have your mouth watering, your dick in painful hardness and your eyes hungrily drinking in the nuances of his performance.
Tailspin begins as Jeff and Ethan are climaxing a personal and private encounter in the back seat of Ethan's beat up Mercury. Ethan's encounter with Jeff has made him late for work as a car hop at the local drive-in and, when his jalopy won't start, Jeff agrees to drop him off in his new Edsel convertible.
At the drive-in we capture a microcosm of the town. One section of the restaurant is occupied by a gang of greasers and their chicks-all leather, levi and greased up hair, with studied studly behavior covering hopeless lives without a future. Another section is filled by a more loosely structured (but equally rigid) group of the kids of the town's more affluent-a group that Jeff joins when he arrives. These guys tease Brent Cross about his playing around with the greasers just in order to get in some good wrestling workouts.
After the drive-in closes, Brett Winters, who covered for Ethan when he was late, presses for a sexual payback. Reluctant at first, Ethan recalls how Jeff cut him and decides that this form of payback is as good as any other. The two men absorb each other's meat like a sword-swallowing competition at a circus contest.
Meanwhile, unaware of what he has set in motion, Jeff has gone out and gotten Ethan's car started. He brings it to the drive-in and, upon going in, discovers Ethan and Brett. He dashes out of the restaurant; throws the keys on the seat of Ethan's car and runs. Later, after the sex, when Ethan discovers his car, he figures out what has happened.
That evening the party is in full swing. Jason Nikas, one of Jeff's good friends, joins Jeff on the balcony and complains that the girls are nothing but prick teasers who leave him with a hardon. Jeff suggests they go down into the garden and do something about it. While the beautiful party continues in the background, Jeff and Jason have their own hot little celebration.
Another evening at the drive-in. Jeff enters and, in a tense encounter with Ethan, demands that they meet and talk. Negative at first, Ethan suddenly changes his mind and agrees to meet him in the park as soon as he gets off work. Soon everyone is gone except K.C. Hart and Blake Anderson, the waiter who is closing up for the night. Blake locks the door and closes the blinds and then proceeds to show K. C. the time of his life.
In the park, Ethan arrives to meet Jeff. They decide to do it. Each tries to put the best of himself into the lovemaking to try and heal the wounds of their worlds. It is a beautiful and memorable encounter, as draining emotionally as it is physically. While they're making love, Ethan's friends are taking Jeff's beautiful new car for a little joyriding of their own. When Jeff discovers that his car is gone, he also knows that Ethan had a part in it and that even the boy who has everything, can't have everything. And Ethan discovers that nothing kills the pain-not even revenge. . With his considerable talent, John has succeeded in blending it all together using the drama, the comedy, the highjinks, and the emotions to create a sexual experience that, without shortchanging the power and the glory of standard sex shows, goes way beyond their limits resulting in an emotional experience with an inevitability that is overwhelming. Tailspin is a video destined to be near the top of anyone's shortlist of the best of the genre.
