Tired Old Queen At The Movies #144 [VIDEO]

Clip recap:

Bette Davis and Miriam Hopkins have a field day as two friends who support, love and battle each other over work, men, marriage and through World War II in Vincent Sherman’s “Old Acquaintance” (1943). Taken from the Broadway hit, the film was hampered by the continual in-fighting between its two stars who couldn’t stand one another. This antagonism helped their performances and made it one of the biggest hits of Bette’s career.

    “Steve” is a very gay name.

    All the best gays are Steves.

    • My middle name is Steve. With a “v”. Seriously!

      • another_steve

        Well your mama had good taste.

    • Gustav2

      “Mark, Rick or Steve.”

      • I thought if you were “fabulous” Rik gave his “c” to Marc, just like Jon gave his “h” to Thom. This observation comes from my sister. Gay men like to give letters in their names to other gay men.

        • IamM

          We should make that part of getting married or engaged.

          John & Tom ➡️ Jon and Thom

        • EdmondWherever

          lol my husband’s gay uncle is Thom.

    • Acronym Jim

      “Stephans” can be alternately hilarious and annoying, though.

      • another_steve

        I’m a Steven with a “v.”

        I (the most nelly thing on Planet Earth) like to jokingly say to my friends that I’m so glad my mother didn’t spell my name “Stephen,” since that spelling is so unmanly. Lol.

    • Craig Howell

      Seems that every Tom, Dick and Harry I know in the gay world is named Steve.

      • another_steve

        And did not God create Adam and Steve?

    • Kendall

      All the best Steves are gay? 😉

      • another_steve

        Alas I knew one Steve who was not gay. I had the terrible hots for him, but he was not gay.

        Plus, he spelled his name “Stephen.”

        Perhaps an indicator that he was not meant for me.

      I honestly can’t tell if the Queen is yawning or going YAAAAAAAS!!!!

      • GeoffreyPS

        She’s primal screaming while running over peasants in her Range Rover. Good times.

    • ChrisMorley

      Car pool karaoke, but cropped.

      • Robincho

        She’s on her third chorus of “God Save ME”…

  • Lazycrockett

    Love it!

    • Millstone

      Hey. Looks like you were way ahead of the curve on that post about turning people away at the airports last night. I’ve gone from skeptical to astonished.

      • Lazycrockett

        Scary times.

  • That_Looks_Delicious

    I’m afraid the only films that are relevant right now are “1984” and “Judgement at Nuremberg”.

    • jsmukg

      and ‘The Handmaid’s Tale…..’ uggggggggh

  • Meatliscious

    Ahhh, I really needed some Tired Old Queen! Well, I needed me some of that little otter Johny! But Steve is a great addition.

    • Jeffrey

      I have a thing for those otters.

  • Chitown Kev

    Damn, Joe, I thought this was a followup to that story about the Republican with “relief funds” that was shot at the porn shop…

    Is it simply me or does this lovely series almost always follows closely behind a story like that?

  • pluky

    Was there any woman in Hollywood that Bette Davis got along with?

  • GeoffreyPS

    Just bought the 4 pack he’s holding. Haven’t watched any yet.

    • WhiteJesus

      He has a 4pack? He doesn’t even look fit at all!

  • What’s with those “dolls” on the left? Are they award statues or from some theatre Barbie collection or something even more fabulous, like something boys who attend the Fashion Institute of Technology would automatically know? I like them.
