Synopsis

From comic sissies to lesbian vampires, from pathetic queens to sadistic predators, Hollywood has both reflected and defined how we think about homosexuality--and what it means to be a man or woman. With clips from over 100 Hollywood movies and interviews with many of the filmmakers and actors who created them, "The Celluloid Closet" explodes sexual myths and explores how our attitudes about homosexuality and sex roles have evolved through the century. Based on writer-activist Vito Russo's landmark 1978 book.
