From the groundbreaking director of Rock Hudson's Home Movies, Mark Rappaport takes us on a hilarious and provocative romp through the hidden and not-so-hidden gay undercurrents of Hollywood's Golden Years. Dan Butler (Fraiser) acts as tour guide as he uncovers — despite efforts to launder American cinema of even the faintest traces of gay influences — Hollywood's squeamish fascination with gay eroticism and camp.
Through the use of ingenious film clips, along with Rappaport's signature witty insights, The Silver Screen: Colour Me Lavender brilliantly uncovers the unmistakable homoerotic flirtations, and the ambiguous behaviour that richly imbued the performances of Danny Kaye, Jerry Lewis, Cary Grant, and other film legends.
The Silver Screen: Colour Me Lavender is a rich and funny mediation on American sexual identity, film history and culture that will change the way you look at butch westerns or the campy charades of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby in their "buddy" road movies forever.
