Cole and Dale, famous for their unflinching and endearing Hookers on Davie (1984, 86 min) started their collaboration at Sheridan College in the 1970s and already expressed an interest in sexual and social marginality in their early shorts: Cream Soda (1976) and Minimum Charge No Cover (1976), about Yonge Street sexual outlaws and the gritty 70s demi-monde. The film unfolds to reveal some of the filmmaker’s friends who lead alternative lifestyles. "We meet transsexuals, homosexuals, hookers, transvestites and female impersonators," the original film synopsis states. A rarely screened classic.
