Synopsis by Mark Deming
Colton Ford had long dreamed of making a career for himself in the music business; while in college, he first began appearing in nightclubs, singing in dinner theaters and appearing with jazz combos, and later he landed gigs singing with dance club star Frankie Knuckles and cut a handful of solo singles. Ford first found fame, however, as an actor and model working in gay porn films. While he enjoyed a successful career in the adult industry, in 2002 at the age of 39 he felt it was time to get out of porn and take another stab at the music industry. Naked Fame is a documentary directed by Chris Long which follows Ford and his life partner Blake Harper as they follow the bumpy road into a new life as Ford struggles to re-launch himself as a pop star -- no small task for a middle-aged man with a long resumé in gay porn.
