It's a very "real" moment in the film.
In "Goodbye Again", Yves Montand caresses Perkins' chin in a drunk scene.
Perkins had the kind of "allure" that could appeal to both women and men.
In "Goodbye Again", Ingrid Bergman wanted to have an actual affair with him.
But Perkins just could not do it.
He did not become a heterosexual until the age of 39 when he met Victoria Principal.
Perkins had that boyish charm which must have lured both his female and male co-stars.
