For this edition of “Movie Memories”, we dug deep into the omgblog.com Criterion Collection of Naked Men to unearth the classic 1964 sci-fi flick Robinson Crusoe On Mars, starring Paul Mantee, Adam West and Barney, The Woolly Monkey. This PG-rated pick comes courtesy of Canada’s very own Reluctant Pornographer Bruce LaBruce, who we just interviewed about his decidedly R-rated new movie, Otto; or, Up with Dead People.
Robinson Crusoe On Mars is about a wayward beefcake (Mantee) who crash lands on the Red Planet and must survive on its forbidding landscape with only an adorable monkey named Mona (Barney) to keep him company. For a pre-teen LaBruce, this film was early late night wank material.
“You only see him naked from a distance… but he’s definitely naked,” he says. “I saw it on the late, late show one weekend alone when I was about 10 or 12 years old. It really turned me on! The actor in the movie is really hot in a jock hunk kind of way, and the thought of him alone on this planet and naked really made me horny.”
Check out the mildly NSFW hunky monkey action (in Technicolor!) after the jump.
Dust off that magnifying glass!
