Daddy and the Muscle Academy (DVD)
Directed by Ilppo Pohjola
The Life, Art and Times of Tom of Finland
Tom of Finland (born Touko Laaksonen) is one of the major icons of the gay world. Taking inspiration from his World War II army days, 1950s American bodybuilding magazines and biker movies, Tom's erotic drawings of uniformed and leather-clad beefcake have become a permanent fixture of 20th-century iconography. Completed shortly before his death in 1991, this definitive documentary of the man and the artist combines interviews with Tom himself, commentary from his "leather men," hundreds of original drawings and steamy fantasy scenes inspired by his work.
DVD Extras Include:
- Sketch gallery with over 100 Tom of Finland drawings
- 40 minutes of extended interview outtakes with Tom
