Is He Gay ??
Mario Cantone, TCM's guest programmer for January, has been described by the New York Times as "a comedian of extravagant tantrums and extravagant gifts." Cantone's Tony-nominated turn in his outrageous one-man Broadway show, Laugh Whore, was repeated last year on cable TV's Showtime. Before that, he gained a following on HBO's Sex and the City
His chosen films, each of which features a Golden Age movie diva: Joan Crawford in A Woman's Face (1941), Bette Davis in Mr. Skeffington (1944), Judy Garland in Meet Me in St. Louis (1944) and Gloria Swanson in Sunset Blvd. (1950).
Joan, Bette, Judy and Swanson
Long live the Queen.
