Pride Month: It's No Good Without Billy Haines Comments (0)

William aka Billy Haines (1900-1973) bolted from Virginia in 1919 to live in NYC's Greenwich Village, where he lived with a male couple who'd been together for 40 years. He also befriended a same-sex couple who were living together, both of whom moved to Hollywood — becoming known as fashion designer Orry-Kelly (1897-1964) and movie star Cary Grant (1904-1986).

Billy entered a 1922 talent contest that lhe won, leading to an MGM contract and a career in Hollywood in the Silent Era. William-Haines-gay

Throughout the '20s, Haines gained a reputation as a popular leading man, one with a certain degree of sarcasm that today might be diagnosed as snark. His hits included the 1926 smashes Brown of Harvard and Tell It to the Marines (indeed).

He was also a carouser, notching up affairs with men and women, including an alleged one-off with Clark Gable (1901-1960), a more serious affair with superstar Ramon Novarro (1899-1968), and relationships with Norma Shearer (1902-1983) and Barbara La Marr (1896-1926).

In spite of Haines's success, his casual approach to being gay was a liability; in an era when coming out was unheard of, he was never really in, though he did tell reporters he was in love with actress Polly Moran (1883-1952), a pal. In reality, from 1926, he was in love with former sailor Jimmie Shields (1905-1974), with whom he lived.

The late Betsy Bloomingdale's goodies are being auctioned by Christie's, among them a number of items designed or supplied by the legendary designer/former actor/gay bon vivant Billy Haines.

Haines, as you may know, was Joan Crawford's bestie. It was his decades-long relationship with his partner that Crawford said made theirs the happiest marriage in Hollywood.

I find the items Christie's is offering rather meh, but there's no overlooking this handsome cock.

FEUD In A Nutshell Comments (0)

Emily Nussbaum's long look at Feud in The New Yorker is beautifully written, and she sums the whole damn thing up right here:

A woke Ryan Murphy is a tricky proposition: as anyone who watched late seasons of “Glee” knows, didactic camp can be a nightmare. “Feud” has its flaws—a jokey song cue here, blunt exposition there. But Murphy lets the contradictions sizzle: he knows that schlock can double as great art; that self-loathing can work both as a goad to ambition and as an emotional crippler. “Hollywood should be forced to look at what they’ve done to her,” Geraldine Page (Sarah Paulson) remarks of Joan Crawford late in the series, but not unkindly. Like all great horror, “Feud” loves its monsters. It’s also a lot of fun. 

Yep!
