A Vintage Vantage: Jesse & Alan Vint

There are many brother acting duos including Alec, Billy and Stephen Baldwin, Owen and Luke Wilson, Chris and Liam Hemsworth and Ben and Casey Affleck. I had never heard of the Vint brothers however, until this past weekend. TCM aired the 1974 action drama Macon County Line. Written and produced by Max Baer Jr, the southern flick reminded me a bit of a more violent version of The Dukes of Hazzard.

The film centers on Chris and Wayne, (Alan and Jesse Vint) two brothers on a spree of thrills and sex before their date to report for duty with the air force. The brothers however, get mistaken for two drifters who have just murdered the wife of the town's sheriff. (Max Baer Jr). Although the actual murderers are in police custody, the sheriff doesn't get the news in time and heads out seek revenge.

The movie opens with a scene of Chris and Wayne taking turns having a sex with a beautiful blonde. Wayne (Jesse Vint) has had his turn and is cleaning up when he see's there are two men hot on their tails. Wayne has to get Chris off the blonde, and out the window before they're found out. Although the editing is fast, watching Wayne (Alan Vint) getting up completely naked, and trying to find his clothes and get out the window was a great scene. Alan's ass even gets a freeze framed on the opening titles of the film.

Both actors were incredibly busy on film and TV in the seventies and eighties but Alan left acting in the late 90's, and sadly died in 2006. Jesse is still a busy working actor as well as writer and director. Although Jesse was shirtless in the film, it was Alan who took it all off in the movies two scenes.

Jesse did have a quick nude scene in the 1977 film Black Oak Conspiracy. Although looking hot and shirtless on the film's poster, I didn't actually find that scene in the film, but he was shirtless with a distant rear shot in a love scene in a barn.
