The Silver Screen: Color Me Lavender


Dir. Mark Rappaport (1997).
Mark Rappaport’s clip-anthology takes the position that, for those with eyes to see it, Hollywood is naturally gay. Concentrating on studio comedies from the ‘30s through the ‘50s, he seems most amused by the Hollywood dance of insinuation and denial. Re Bob Hope: “What could be funnier than a straight guy pretending he’s not as straight as he pretends?”
