He was an auteur who could see the beauty of young men as others could not. He produced male erotica and advanced its standards. Not many more left I'm afraid who place quality over quantity. Most in the business have no talent for showcasing beautiful, fit young men--let alone recognizing them, but Mr. Cadinot's films--his contributions to art will survive. Thank you Mr. Cadinot for sharing your gifts and not compromising. May God Bless and keep you in paradise.
