A wonderful look at the history of homosexuality, from the beginning of the film industry. Sometimes covert or implied (but seldom flattering:), as far back as the silent movies made at the turn of the century, the stock gay character (referred to by show biz insiders as "The Sissy") was easily recognized by the audience (as well as the Censorship Board, soon afterwards:) So many, many excellent movie clips are shown and commented on! I assure you that you'll never regret the 102 minutes spent on watching this film - be you gay or be you straight! ***** Lol...5/5 indicates p-r-r-fect =^.^=

fairly interesting, showing alotof chronologically relevant movie clips since the start of cinema up till the mid 80s, along with commentary from people involved in the industry or various famous gay activists in and out of it, so does have a pro homosexual outlook, but aimed at a wider audience, so not particularly preachy, and while i am against homosexuality, didnt show anything particularly offensive. Fwiw, would've been interesting to also see parallels to the respective treatment of homosexuality on tv. And on a sidenote, if interested, you can read ''The Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 (Hays Code)'' at FilmWiseLa (the code replaced in 1966 by MPAA) showing its startling contrast to current tv and movies, promoting just about everything the code sought to restrict or ban. And for reference, was in 1952 the supreme court ruling denying films (or studios) full freedom of speech, was overruled, which wouldve reduced the studios burden to follow the Hayes code, and presumably the Catholic legion of decency had lost its clout by then; so iiuc, had been those three things in combination that kept the film industry mostly clean from the 30s to the 50s

A good insiders peek into the often hidden homosexuality aspects of show-biz. Thumbs up from me.

I watched it right after "THE CHILDREN'S HOUR" and it was very interesting, also quite funny sometimes.

So, I guess it's OK to imply that heterosexuals can be turned, but it isn't OK that there might be something wrong or immoral about homosexuality or portray a homosexual turning? Hollywood still has not got it right! Hypocrites! 0/5
