George Cukor

2 posts in this topic

I was just watching an old  Dick Cavett show with George Cukor- in which he said he did not know the real reason why he was fired from "GWTW"he only said Gable had something to do with it...  Cukor of course was discreet and old school but it would have been fascinating to hear him tell the truth of his life as gay man in classic Hollywood.

I agree. Most likely it was Gable's homophobia that drove Cukor off the GWTW set. But without that happening, THE WOMEN would not have turned out so good.
