Michael Malone, Heroes of Eros : Male Sexuality in the Movies, New York, Dutton, 1979, First Printing. Paper covers with sepia portraits on the front and color portrait of Robert Redford on the back, 4to (27 cm), x, 182 pp, bw photos throughout. "Malone shows how the masculine erotic image has changed through the years—from such 'good guy' romantic heroes as Douglas Fairbanks, to the tough sweetness of Bogart and Gable, to rebels like James Dean and Elvis Presley, to such brooding contemporary heroes as Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. ... a true feast for movie lovers —and for lovers of men." Good: cover faded, bumped with a crease down the back, light dampstain on ffep edge, no markings.
