OMG: This Movie Is SOOOOO GAY!!!
Aside from presenting what is essentially a Judy Garland concert on film, this movie has other "gay" moments that I can only imagine were deliberate infusions by either the writer or the director or both.
Honestly, a whole gaggle of cross-dressing teenage boys clamoring for a song from Judy who then leads them along as she plays the piano???
And the whole business about her and Dirk Bogarde having sex in New York City but never getting married and parting ways completely: sounds like the hetero-exploits of many a confused young gay man.
The GAYEST reference, however, which is what gave away this whole gay charade, was Judy's comment after her booze binge which lands her in the hospital: "I drank enough to float Fire Island."
"Don't call me 'honey', mac."
"Don't call me 'mac'... HONEY!"
