Nights in Black Leather: Special Edition

Nights in Black Leather DVD cover

In 1972, Peter Berlin and filmmaker friend Richard Abel decided to move Berlin’s street cruising persona onto film. Released in 1973, Nights in Black Leather quickly became one of the biggest-grossing All Male Cast adult films of its time.

A documentary style look at the typical days and nights of German immigrant Berlin in San Francisco, Nights in Black Leather provides plenty of steamy encounters and slice of life looks at gay cruising/street life of the day. Berlin is dazzling, flaunting himself in leather and his famous tight white pants, hooking up for phone sex, a steamy forest idyll, a hot threesome, and some light S&M fun along the way.

The Nights in Black Leather Special Edition DVD includes:

  • the feature film Nights in Black Leather, digitally remastered from a newly struck 16mm print
  • 2 classic Peter Berlin short films: "Ciro and Peter" (a two-part, 20-minute duet with a long-haired beauty) and the rare and controversial "Waldeslust," which features a scene often cut from prints circulating in the late 1970s.

In addition, this DVD contains photo galleries of over 60 Peter Berlin images and delves deep into Peter’s archives, unearthing 4 newly discovered short films – never released in any format – including one featuring Peter’s long-time friend Marc Majors, co-star with Peter in “Blueboys,” one of the short films appearing on the That Boy Special Edition DVD.
