Silver Screen: Color Me Lavender
Actor Dan Butler hosts this documentary survey of homosexuality as depicted in movies from Hollywood's Golden Age. The film presents an endless parade of clips as it attempts to read a gay subtext into cinema characters portrayed by Eric Blore, Edward Everett Horton, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Walter Brennan, and Randolph Scott. Shown at the 1997 Locarno Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mark Rappaport is not exactly a documentarian and something more than a filmmaker. You could say he's a movie critic who writes by remote control."
‑ Rob Nelson, City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul
"The overall presumptive smugness gets laid on a little too thickly."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
