    I really don't buy this sexual fluidity thing- yes there are people who are bi-sexual- and yes that makes sense- but this going back and forth thing is not something I'm buying- well maybe in females but not in males.

    Billy Crystal played gay in "Soap" (1977-1981)

    I believe in casting an actor who is right for the role. If there is an out gay actor who can play the character than use him but if a straight actor is better for the role then why not choose the straight actor. Acting is about pretending after all- this has become an issue in recent times- specially from projects involving transgender characters- some big name stars have dropped out of projects because of it- now I wonder will the producers find money if they cast a transgender unknown?
  5. Tom Hanks has good taste...

    A well made for tv movie about a young man dealing with AIDs
  7. I think the soap opera element make it more interesting to me- I wish they would just come up with more ways for the vicar to take off his clothes- yes I know I'm going to Hell🤣
  8. I have to catch up with the series I did see an episode last night that had a movie theater as the murder setting and yes the Vicar got all hot and bothered with a girl in an alley - lucky girl

    I think the point of the episode was too show that a gay man could look and act like a "regular guy" of course there is nothing average about Joe Penny.

    That is so true but this also shows the importance of having positive gay images on screen- this was specially rare back in the 70's-80's. I kept trying to find this particular episode and was convince it was from another series- and yes and it's not just because I obviously had a crush on Joe Penny😍

    Joe Penny 😍 plays a closeted police officer who risks coming out to solve a crime in "Lou Grant"( 1979) Season 3 Episode 1 Penny gives very good performance . They go out of their way to show Penny as butch as possible, lifting weights, at a shooting range even coaching a kid's sports team but as the show progresses his sensitive side comes out and he goes to explain how he is forced to sacrifice his personal life. He never does anything gay with another man ( hard to believe a guy who look like Penny would not have boyfriend) . This episode must have really affected me when it first r

    Steve Carrington was the gay son on "Dynasty" - that meeting at the door should have ended with a kiss

    A scene from "Consenting Adults" (1985) a film about a family dealing with their son's homosexuality

    Ramon Novarro

    Novarro goes native in "The Pagan" - the South Sea adventure romance another Hollywood genre that allow the studios to put their best looking bodies on display

    There is a great image of Ralph Graves pulling of Novarro's pants which suggest all sorts of possibilities- interesting watching these silent era films and realizing that Hollywood has always been putting young male stars in settings they can easily get naked.

    I got the idea from your post on "The Streets of San Francisco" and yes there are many examples of gay images on tv

    Navarro and friends get checked out by the Navy doctors- Ralph Graves plays "the best physical specimen since Adam "

    "Police Story: The Ripper" (1974) Darren McGavin and Michael Cole hunt down a serial killer who is murdering gay men in this tv version of "Cruising" McGavin plays the more liberal cop who teaches Cole some lessons on gay tolerance. Cole over uses the f word so much and over does the gay hatred that I thought at the end he was either going to turn out to be the killer or come out as a closet case . We do get fair cross section of gay suspects, a psychologist, a butch cowboy, and the effeminate head of modeling agency. . The show is well written and directed . You can see it on very go

    Interesting that Novarro was playing all the Tom Cruise All American roles. His career as leading man faded with his youthful beauty in the 1930s. The alcoholism did not help. In the 1940s he does some minor supporting character roles but I guess he had invested his money wisely. MGM could have offered him at least a cameo in their remake of "Ben Hur". In the 1960s he was guest starring in tv shows but his health had deteriorated by the time of his murder. He seemed to have need companionship more than sex according to the Soares book he only had one long term relationship.
  21. I bought the Richard Hatch season for ten bucks on Amazon- yes I have too many DVDs sets too some of which I haven't even watched.
  22. "The Streets of San Francisco" worth getting on DVD- look and sound better than on you tube and one can really appreciate the beauty of young Richard Hatch ( if that is your sort of thing)
  23. Yes they are active- so I would hire to play the gay couple now and then flash back to their crime fighting career
