Tired Old Queen At The Movies #125

Clip description:

The underside of Gay Hollywood history is examined with love, sensitivity and a lot of humor in Bill Condon’s brilliant “Gods and Monsters” (1999). Starring Ian McKellen as veteran, gay, Brit director James Whale and Brendan Fraser as a beautiful, young, gardener he takes a fancy to, the film deals with the relations ship that develops between these two vastly different men, under the watchful eye of Lynn Redgrave as Whale’s over protective German housekeeper. The Oscar winning screenplay examines the price that was paid for being an open homosexual in old Hollywood along with the loss of one’s creativity, lively hood and spirit as a result. It’s funny, touching and ultimately unforgettable.
