She definitely had better material at MGM. But the role she is most remembered for playing (the Baroness in THE SOUND OF MUSIC) occurred at 20th Century Fox.

Yes, as far as I can tell, a very mixed bag of "treats" -

and I do believe that Terrence McNally disowned the film version of "The Ritz".

Of course,"Myra Breckinridge" is not the Gore Vidal novel.

All these films have a time capsule type quality, where we see how LGBTQ issues have been treated at various points in cinematic history. For example, TORCH SONG TRILOGY is very much a product of the 80s.

It's a shame they didn't include something from the 90s or early 2000s, to round things out a bit more and provide TCM viewers with a bigger picture of how things have been. And how things have changed (or not changed).

I agree, perhaps "Making Love" could have been included.
