Neglected Films With Gay Favorites

77 posts in this topic

I just watched Haines in WAY OUT WEST.  I've seen SPRING FEVER and some of his other movies.  It's easy to see why he was so popular.  He was quite a talent in silent and early talkies - charming and funny.  Of course, Mayer tried to control him like he did so many other talented actors but Haines won in the end by living life the way he wanted and being happy.

On screen, he had a very winning personality.

Elinor Glyn said that he did not have "It".

Louis B. Mayer was very upset by this announcement.

If Miss Glyn meant "sexual heat" - well, then, no, HaInes didn't have "IT".

But he did have CHARM, which was equally important, I'd say.
