Poster image from the film Fleshpot on 42nd St.
Ultra-low-budget queer auteur Andy Milligan’s final sexploitation film captures the sleazy milieu of prostitutes, pimps, and junkies who frequented early-1970s Times Square. Flavored with Milligan’s trademark acid-tongued dialogue and frenzied cinematography, the film is the story of streetwalker Dusty Cole (Laura Cannon) and her drag queen friend Cherry Lane (Neil Flanagan) as they swap tricks and struggle to make it on New York’s mean streets. Reminiscent of Paul Morrissey’s early films for Andy Warhol and the late works of Tennessee Williams, Fleshpot on 42nd Street is a funny and affectionate grindhouse gem.
