Monte Hellman, Francis Giacobetti, Michel Parbot, Bob Rafelson – Rendez-Vous Video Magazine (1981)
This 1981 silken sleaze video magazine “For the Man Who Wants More…” contains Monte Hellman’s short portrait of Francis Ford Coppola discussing business and craft at home and on the set of his Zoetrope Studios, “Inside the Coppola Personality” (sometimes credited in Hellman filmographies as “Coppola: A Profile”). Also inside is “Rafelson” (or “Modesty” as it is credited in his filmography), a self-portrait by Bob Rafelson, shot by Bruno Nuytten. The other entries — a portrait of a pubic hair dye specialist, a travelogue on Bangkok, a candid camera with a planted hussie at a gas station, etc. etc. — is soft core pornography by high-level photographers.
