L.A. Plays Itself is a 1972 American experimental gay pornographic film, direct and produced by Fred Halsted.

At the film's screening, Salvador Dalí was reportedly quoted as saying, "new information for me".


La caméra quitte les abords de Los Angeles pour montrer les paysages de la campagne environnante. Un promeneur dans les bois descend vers un cours d'eau où se trouve un jeune homme blond et nu. Le promeneur s'approche de lui et ils ont des relations sexuelles. Des images de bulldozer servent de transition vers une deuxième partie.
