Seed Money: The Chuck Holmes Story
A closeted Indiana boy heads for San Francisco, comes out in the fabulous 1970s, builds an adult-entertainment empire that redefines pretty-boy masculinity, befriends David Geffen and Bill Clinton, helps found the Human Rights Campaign, donates millions to community causes, succumbs to AIDS, and is honored as the namesake of the SF LGBT Center---all while indulging his obsession with hairless bubble butts in visionary porn epics. This bio, by turns salacious, poignant, and inspiring, belongs to infamous provocateur and philanthropist Chuck Holmes, the subject of the rousing documentary Seed Money. As the founder of Falcon Studios, which made stars of a bevy of bronzed, blond Adonises, Holmes created hardcore extravaganzas for the VHS-and-cocaine era.
