Jodie Foster Has Come A Long Way, Baby Comments (0)

Jodie-foster-boycultureIt's a whole new world, no? (Image via video still)

When I was young and resentful that Jodie Foster wasn't out while receiving a well-deserved Oscar (and using her speech to push back against calls to be out), I couldn't have guessed that in '21 she'd be on her couch at home with her wife, broadcasting it live on the Golden Globes. A truly shocking juxtaposition to have lived through, don't you agree?

Her acceptance speech from nearly 30 (!) years ago, really doesn't sound nearly as defensive as I recalled it — so subtle, but we did know what she was talking about:

Charles Buddy Rogers & That Gay Kiss Comments (0)

Much as been made about the kiss between Charles “Buddy” Rogers and Richard Arlen in the 1927 silent classic Wings, which won the first Best Picture Oscar. A war movie, it contained male nudity and a curious moment between two soldiers, one of whom kisses the other as he lays dying.

It has widely been interpreted as verging on gay, not at all hindered by the belief that Rogers — who was married to Mary Pickford for over 40 years —was probably bisexual in real life.

One convincing rumor goes that Rogers (known as America's Boyfriend at the peak of his career in the '20s) was caught in the arms of fellow actor Gene Raymond on Raymond's honeymoon with actress Jeanette MacDonald!

I bring all of this up because August 13 marks the 116th anniversary of Rogers's birth, and the 112th anniversary of Raymond's.

Rogers & Arlen on an episode of Petticoat Junction 40 years after Wings — his last acting gig:

 

Below, Rogers gets his Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in 1986. I remember watching this and thinking Rogers was an absolute antique, a marvel to still be alive. He was only in his early eighties! Also worth noting is how brief his speech is compared to the speeches of today ...
