Just watched HOUSE OF HORRORS '46 on Svengoolie and was struck by how much Virginia Gray reminded me of Drew Barrymore. They both have prominent chins, large arching eyebrows & bow mouths with tiny teeth. Prefer Drew's strong Barrymore nose to Virginia's dainty one.

Ya know Tiki, funny, but this very same thought also crossed my mind while watching Svengoolie's presentation last night, and yeah, when Virginia Grey was turned in profile to the camera, especially. 

(,,,and now regarding Drew...I'm sure you'll probably laugh at this, but she somehow has always reminded me of...wait for it...George Reeves...yep, early TV's Superman)

Remember.... I suggested the reverse possibility.  ;) 

So, if a woman dresses and disguises herself as a man, is it still called "Drag"?  :huh:  I don't recall anyone being famous as a "Male Impersonator".  Although in life I've met many supposed men I thought were.  ;) 

Sepiatone

Actually Sepia, I think the term for this is "Gard".

Get IT? "Drag" spelled backwards!  ;)

(...okay okay...so maybe not)

Well, maybe not as a full-time job, but Tracey Ullman, Lily Tomlin, and Anna Deavere Smith are all known for convincingly impersonating male characters (in Smith's case real-life characters) in their stage and television work.  Possibly the most famous film example is Linda Hunt in The Year of Living Dangerously.

Also, throughout history there have been numerous women who posed as men in order to fight in battle (at least before they were officially allowed in the military, that is).

And long time SNL cast member Kate McKinnon quite often plays men in that program's skits.

In fact, she might be the present predominant purveyor of it.

Yeah, but I was meaning male impersonating not only as a "claim to fame" (as in Linda Hunt) but also as their main forte( like RuPaul's  "drag" career).    For example..

MS.s  Ullman, Tomlin, Smith are more noted for their work as actresses and comediennes and not their seldom delves into male impersonation.

In answer to your question, yes it is a "thing" , and they're called drag kings, but they don't have the same visibility, and their work is mostly confined to clubs and small performance spaces  rather than TV or movies.  Probably the best known is New York's Murray Hill, who has a Wikipedia page.

So, "drag" works both ways?

Yes

I dunno, but the more I think about this, I think my coinage up there of the word  "Gard" in this regard should take root within the general lexicon, if ya ask ME! 

And differentiating THIS word from someone responsible for watching over something because it wouldn't be spelled with one of those superfluous 'u's in it!!!

(...in fact, I've NOW got a good mind to contact those fellas at Merriam-Webster to get the ball rollin' on this...I'm not gonna bother contactin' those fellas at Oxford because they've never seemed to understand why some of those 'u's in some words just aren't necessary)

My pal Daphne is the spitting image of Divine. Has just about the same temperament too.

OK....

Someone with patience and the ability to post pics can help me out here, please?

Yesterday at my dentist's office, the TV in his waiting room was on and tuned to THE VIEW.  On the show, I saw an old man in a small crowned ball cap that reminded me of KEVIN BROWNLOW  as he's looked recently in some TCM between movie fillers or some recent interviews concerning movie history.  And, THAT Kevin Brownlow put to mind of a resemblance to BUCK HENRY(shortly before he died). ;) 

Well, it turned out the old man who reminded me of Brownlow  was non other than RON HOWARD  of OPIE fame from the old "Andy Griffith Show" !!  :o

That those three individuals  would, in their old age, wind up resembling each other just blew my mind!

Jaws II! Ian Shaw bears a striking resemblance to his father Robert's character Quint in new play The Shark Is Broken about the making of the iconic film 

Ian Shaw bears a striking resemblance to his father Robert in new Jaws play

A new play about the famously troubled production of Jaws has just opened in London's West End. The production named The Shark Is Broken stars Ian Shaw (left) who plays his own dad Robert (right) who starred as Quint in the original film. Ian bears a remarkable likeness to how his father looked in the film in images released of the show, sporting side burns, a brown hat and dishevelled hair.
