the smiling lieutenant (1931)


The Smiling Lieutenant is mostly about Claudette Colbert and Miriam Hopkins being in love with Maurice Chevalier, which is very straight, but they share one very charged scene with each other, which is very gay.  In it, they go from enemies to friends over the course of a song, mainly through Colbert teaching Hopkins how to be a bad girl.  A slap fights leads to weeping and then comforting each other and then showing each other their underwear and then singing about lingerie and then kissing.  It’s basically the gayest makeover montage ever.
