In 1950s Hollywood, a transvestite fools the world into believing he is a glamorous movie diva. When he dies, the secret is out and the film proceeds to tell the story of his relationships with friends and intimates, including a lesbian wardrobe designer, a gay matinee idol (with whom he had an affair), a protective lawyer and washed up prize fighter who becomes his chauffeur.

Dinah East does it with sheer D-movie chutzpah. And a hell of a lot of full-frontal male nudity.

Dinah was so glamorous - a true lady! I missed the beginning, so perhaps I did not get some vital information. Why did they keep going on about her being a man or something?

Note: lots of male nudity and 70s fashions - not for the fainthearted!

Corny plot line and pathetic dialog. A total waste of time.

wow nice looking men in this movie. To think Dinah East was also a man.

I really liked this movie. Sure it was a campy soap opera but it was touching and bold for it's time.

Very sweet loving and moving story..

Fantastic, dream-like, hypnotic, and oh my, that scene in the "gay bar" (it's a set) was 70s Hollywood sleaze at it's best. Remarkably sensitive, considering that it was obviously made by a relatively mainstream outfit to compete with the free-for-all of nudity and sex that was being pumped out by the burgeoning porn industry.

Ab fab camp send up of so many films, movie genres, actors/studio/Hollywood types. Also features crazy, barely post-Stonewall, L.A. "Village People" bar.
