Jeff mentions a film retrospective to celebrate the career of Bette Davis who was born 100 years ago Saturday past. Here's a little tribute to our Bette:
Craig Russell was a brilliant drag artist who got his start at the old Manatee Club on Maitland St in Toronto (I'm not sure but I have a feeling that this scene was shot there - Toronto posing as New York is not an unknown.) This is a clip from one of his first movie, Outrageous.
I had forgotten - or choose to forget - the way we dressed back then. Somewhere in a box at the bottom of a closet there are pictures of a guy who thought he was very with it: moustache, shag haircut, bell bottoms and vest. Today: the moustache is salt and pepper, the hair - what hair?, the bell bottoms wouldn't fit and the vest wouldn't close.
Sic Transit Gloria! Say wasn't that a song we danced to?
