Straight Films That Are Actually Gay.

Thank you so much, Jlewis, that was just terrific.  What a couple of great scenes.  Barbara was masterful and Richard was hot without his shirt.  That little girl looked familiar - I know I've seen her in other shows.  What a treat; thanks again; I loved it!

"The Band Wagon" (1953) another great backstage musical set in the theater world with not a single gay person in sight; if we take a closer look Jeffrey Cordova ( Jack Buchanan) might be gay coded he has no real love interest except for his "personal assistant" Hal.   The metrosexual  choreographer  Paul Byrd was played by gay actor James Mitchell.   The MGM chorus boys are specially cute in this film and they are really on display in the " Louisiana Hayride" number.https://youtu.be/QVxdc1PpiQA

The guy in the bright red plaid shirt looks specially energetic ;)

Seeing Willem Defoe on the Neglected Favorites thread reminded me of AUTO FOCUS (the film about actor Bob Crane of Hogan's Heroes fame).  Talking about toxic masculinity - Bob Crane's sexual obsessions pretty much tanked his career.  In the movie. Willem Defoe plays his buddy who enables his behavior and is a video taping/electronics expert.  It's sorta subtle, but I think pretty clear, that Defoe's character has the unrequited hots for Bob Crane (played by Greg Kinnear)  and this may have led to his murder when Bob tries to break up their relationship.  It's a bromance gone sour.  I really liked the film and the way it explores sexuality, celebrity in the 1960's.

 

Willem Defoe isn't a conventionally handsome guy but he is an excellent actor and he's really good in this as is Kinnear.

Willem Defoe actually sings a whole song in "Roadhouse 66"- it is called "Maria, Maria" and he is very good, too.

"Auto Focus" was an interesting movie but I would have preferred if the real killer was more of a mystery.  Crane does come across as homophobic- but his buddy Carpenter  ( Willem Defoe) seemed to be more interested in pushing the boundaries of sex- like he says in the movie when you are having an **** hands tend to wander. ;)

"Kingsman and the Golden Circle" (2017) In the first film Eggsy (Taron Egerton) a handsome working class lad was recruited by Harry (Colin Firth) a sophisticated older gentleman who gives him a extreme make over and turns him into a secret agent ( who could moonlight as gay escort)   The movie is an over the top live action James Bond cartoon but while Bond is straight there is definite gay sensibility at play in the Kingsman series- yes there are females around but they are mostly use as decorations to distract the audience from all the brobonding.  The villain Julianne Moore is surrounded by good looking henchmen but she never has sex with them . And how straight can film be which features Elton John in a supporting role camping it up in full feather regalia as it was still 1978.  The film most obvious gay friendly asset is Channing Tatum as Agent Tequila ?! in tight cowboy drag; strutting around as if he was still in "Magic Mike" His bulging boxer briefs are photographed in loving close ups( now this a movie I wish was in 3-D)  The film ends with a heterosexual wedding but we know where the movies heart really is at when the final image is Tatum in a tight Kingsman suit.https://youtu.be/6ACG2JGk-LA

"Logan's Run" (1976) in this future world gay sex seems to be accepted- Logan 6( Michael York) does turn down a guy from his 3-D wall grinder but perhaps he did not want to make Francis 7 his bff jealous.  Logan and Francis have an intense bromance- I love the way Francis ( Richard Jordan) practically orders Logan to jump in the hot tub with him later he interrupts Logan's date with Jessica (Jenny Agutter) when he drops in with two girls- we do not see the **** but I have a feeling there was plenty of man to man action too.
