Turner Classic Movie: Screened Out Introduction



TCM Introduction



Hidden glances, longing looks, repressed desires. Desperate for acceptance while struggling with oppression. A life in the spotlight shadowed by a private world of secrecy, censorship and innuendos.

From the closeted to the outrageous, gays and lesbians have left their mark on motion pictures since the beginning while striving for recognition and respect.

TCM presents "Screened Out," gay images in film: A festival of 44 films exposing 66 years of Hollywood homophobia.

Monday & Wednesday nights in June Starting at 8:00 pm EST.

Will be screen-capping what I can when these movies are on. I think it's important to know our history in film, especially those who were previously banned and censored because of a close-minded society.

Feel free to make icons out of any of the caps provided. Please respond when taking anything.

Movie: Exit Smiling - 1926 [Silent Film]

Exit Smiling - 1926
Beatrice Lillie & Jack Pickford

Part Of:
TCM: Screened Out -- The Early Years
"Gay Representations in Film Week"

***** Read TCM Introduction HERE! *****



Exit Smiling is perhaps the only film that ever fully utilized the comic genius of the incomparable Beatrice Lillie. The star is cast as the wardrobe lady of a touring theatrical company. She is introduced to the audience via subtitle as "Violet, the drudge of the troupe...Who also plays parts like 'Nothing' in Much Ado About Nothing." Though bogged down in a treacly plot concerning fugitive-from-justice Jimmy Marsh (Jack Pickford), Lillie manages to rise above the material with her first-rate clowning. Her particular highlight is an extended routine involving a string of pearls (a Lillie "standard" that she'd use time and again on stage). Alas, after the box-office failure of Exit Smiling, Bea Lillie would be confined to secondary film roles, often as not far beneath her talents.

Not the best quality in the world as far as resolution goes, but when you're dealing with movies this old it's pretty hard to find. They still make good icons once you shrink them.

Please comment if you download, I'd like to know how many people are interested in this sort of thing.

Part Of:

***** Read TCM Introduction HERE! *****



In Algie the Miner, a 1912 one-reeler from pioneer producer Alice Guy-Blaché, a young man (Billy Quirk doing something of a limp-wristed "nance" routine) is obliged to prove machismo to his prospective father-in-law. Off to the West he goes, learning first that one does not thank gunslingers by kissing them.
