You guys need to watch These Old Broads written by Carrie Fisher, starring Liz Taylor, Joan Collins, Shirley MacLaine, and her mother, Debbie Reynolds. It’s classic camp and snark at its finest. A true installment of the Real Geriatric Divas of Yesteryear.
“At the time we made The Children’s Hour, there were not real discussions about homosexuality. It was about a child’s accusation. It could have been about anything. So none of us were really aware. We were in the mindset of not understanding what we were basically doing. These days there would be a tremendous outcry, as well there should be. The profundity of this subject was not in the lexicon of our rehearsal period even. Audrey and I never talked about this. Isn’t that amazing? Truly amazing.” —Shirley MacLaine
