  1. Lee was working actor I imagine he did a lot of films just for the paycheck- he was in "Airport 77" after all
  2. Thanks for the review I was thinking about getting this one
  3. He is a little weird...
  4. And plenty of gore!
  5. Of course there was a making off Caligula Penthouse edition! Guccione sneaked into the spectacular sets (well he paid for them )and shot porn inserts. Vidal should have tried to get Heffner to produce the film he had better taste.
  6. "She-Wolf of London" (1946) this seems to want to be Universal's answer to "Cat People" but it lacks that films scares not too mention a sexy leading lady. The story is more mystery than horror and at times feels like a radio play. It needed a bit more shocks
  7. You might be right about Reed's blase persona not working for the film.
  8. It was going to take a lot of body make up and special effects to turn Raquel Welch into Myron. I think you are right the film is a live action cartoon- you can see that from the opening scene. Reed does look bore but I'm not sure why he is even in the film after the opening scene- except to makes wise cracks which are not very funny. And yes Myra B is still very watchable is too outrageous to be boring
  9. Raquel Welch, who still looks stunning talks about the making of the infamous film
  10. Rex Reed is not bad - well at least he looks pretty. Welch is good too - but she doesn't seem to know how to play Myra- well at least she changes costumes in every scene. West was cast because at that time she had become an idol of the counter culture who must have discovered her early films in which she was both sexy and funny. The problem is that having a 76 year old lusting after young men is just weird. John Huston comes out even worse having to play a lot of his scenes naked. Sarne must have wanted to shock but most of his visuals have not aged well.
  11. The movie is worth watching at least once- it's jut too bizarre
  12. I was re-watching this bad film classic from 1970 and my only explanation from this what were they thinking disaster is drugs. There seems to be too much of Mae West, that yes is Hollywood icon but by then she was not a box office attraction- were they trying to attract an older audience by casting her ? The scene in which Mrya rapes Rusty is played both a horror film- (all those lightning flashes) In the book the scene is erotic- (the violation of straight men must have been one of Vidal's favorite fantasies- it turns up again in "Caligula) In the movie it's neither shocking or sexy- it's j
  13. It's a fascinating movies for many reasons and yes it must watch in you have any interest in pre-Stonewall gay history
  14. Yeah that was strange specially if they bought the house to renovate and sell?!
  15. I saw "The Queen" when it was re-released on 2019. I think you can watch it on Amazon.
  16. The film seems to be setting up a Conjuring series with the Old Man and the daughter- also if you move into a house and flies are coming out the wall - wouldn't you check to see what's causing that?
  17. I watched " The Celluloid Closet" which is such great documentary. I had forgotten how much it covers but the directors are right about the current state of gays in films things really have not changed that much- on television yes but in theaters we barely get a gay theme film from a major studio
  18. This is the directors first movie and you can see his influences- I think the script that probably started off as a short was a set up for the final twist- which actually makes no sense- you are telling me the father who spend so much time in the boy's room did not notice the images before?
  19. This might have been better with a decent budget - it has some interesting ideas -the trailer gives away the non ending!
  20. Olympic champion Buster Crabbe makes an entrance ....
  21. I thought it was a perfect time to revive this thread...
  22. "Don't Listen" (Voces) (2020) a family moves into a haunted house in this familiar horror film from Spain. You can see it on Netflix
  23. I finally go to see the x rated version of this infamous epic and all I can say is that less is more. I'm not sure what Gore Vidal had in mind but I'm sure it was more than this sex and gore show. Malcon McDowell gives it his all but he can't compete with all the sex and perversion which is not erotic just exhausting. The sets and costumes are fabulous but Fellini did it first and better in "Satyricon" I do recommend getting the Imperial Edition which has a very amusing commentary by McDowell
  24. Proud of this young gay man but I'm still waiting for the David Kopay movie bio
