Neglected Films With Gay Favorites

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.

"Huddle" - Sam Wood - 1932 -

Ramon Navarro stars as a young working man who wins a scholarship to Yale University -

the film is conceived on an epic scale for a college-bound drama -

there's the class system, working hard to prove oneself, making out, becoming a football hero, and winning the girl of your dreams -

Ramon Navarro has never been so handsome - or so masculine -

in terms of screen persona, this film was a major step forward for him -

and, yet, it failed at the box office -

the film is littered with male beauty - primarily, Ramon Navarro himself, John Arledge (as Pidge) and Kane Richmond (as Tom) -

it is over-long and loses focus -

but it's worth it to glory in and appreciate Ramon Navarro -

John Glover as Brother Leon in Keith Gordon's first film,"The Chocolate War" -

1176962196_2.gif

Dire doings at a Catholic high school for boys which centers on the sale of 50,000 boxes of chocolates -

the cast is superb and the direction is superlative -

Ilain Mitchell-Smith stars as the put-above boy -

the film is shot through with a gay sensibility -

and, indeed, the film can be seen metaphorically -

That's Wallace Langham (as Archie) - in the film, he is billed as Wally Ward.

The character, Archie, is at the center of the film's "gay sensibility".

The scene plays like a seduction scene- the fact that he is shirtless adds to the sexual tension in the cross cutting
