Curt McDowell
(1945 - 1987) U.S.A.

Curt McDowell

Actor and director


Born as Curtis A. McDowell and raised in Indiana, Curt never lost his Midwest mannerisms. Enrolled at the San Francisco Art Institute in the late '60s on a painting scholarship, Curt was turned on to movies by instructor Bob Nelson and switched to the film department.

Curt quickly found his own style and began to incorporate a large circle of friends, artistic collaborators, and virtual strangers off the street into the more than 30 films he would make, and he eventually talked most of them into taking their clothes off and appearing in his movies. McDowell was not the only Art Institute student bent on exploring the limits of erotic cinema.


His films include:

  • Thundercrack! (1975)
  • Sparkles Tavern (1976)
  • Loads (1981)
