Regarding his movie making philosophy producer Ross Hunter once said You might just as well have a murder take place on an Oriental rug as on someone s dirty linoleum This pretty well sums up the attitude of most of the folks who manufactured style for the masses in an industry built upon a foundation of glorious illusion the dream factories of Hollywood s golden age Vito Russo has illustrated how one of its most monumental illusions was the non existence of homosexuals but what comes as something of a shock as revealed in Behind the Screen is the extent to which gay artists who plied their multifarious trades on every level of the business happily and contentedly contributed to that illusion perpetuating a synthetic image at the seeming expense of gay visibility Even that most celebrated of ueer iconoclasts James Whale made films informed not so much by sexual politics as by a consciousness inspired by his idiosyncrasy Ah but uelle idiosyncrasy It s what gave words to Norma Desmond Charles Brackett s and shape to the Yellow Brick Road Jack Moore s It s what prompted set decorator George James Hopkins to remark I would be held back having to think of technicalities instead of giving my imagination free rein It s what makes the great Hollywood films a hell of a lot fabulous than they might have been if such a thing is imaginable without the contribution of homosexuals Behind the Screen celebrates that contribution and illustrates through many entertaining informative and well chosen anecdotes and personal recollections how in the end gay Hollywood managed to articulate itself on the silver screen without ever really trying to do so In that respect Mr Mann s is a most triumphant and liberating accomplishmentDozens of extraordinary characters are marched through the pages of Behind some of them so individually fascinating they deserve full blown biographical treatment Among these are Anderson Lawler live in lover of a youthful Gary Cooper and professional beard for many a dateless and as often as not lesbian luminary and actress Lilyan Tashman the biggest dyke Tinseltown had ever seen who said of her happy marriage to the eually gay Edmund Lowe with tongue apparently in cheek I pride myself that I interest him than any other woman The history of homosexuals and their artistic contribution to Hollywood s classic films is one that has gone largely unexplored I was tempted to end that last sentence with the words until now as that phrase and all the breathless grandiosity it implies is employed no less that half a dozen times in the course of this volume Why the fine author of this impressive tome as well as the masterful 1998 biography of Billy Haines Wisecracker should feel the need to repeatedly blow his own horn while deliberately overlooking the efforts of David Ehrenstein 1998 s excellent Open Secret and indirectly smearing those of some others Axel Madsen s 1995 The Sewing Circle is uite inexplicable but don t let that stop you from purchasing and enjoying this otherwise marvelous book
