Hollywood’s Men In Drag
McAllister TV launches a new series of Hollywood movie reviews with a look at the 1939 drama The Women from MGM. What was most remarkable about The Women is that the picture depicted only women, never showing a single male, not a bellhop or a clerk or a cab driver.
But compounding the joke, none of the women shown are actually women, but instead females portrayed by men. These include Joan Crawford, Joan Fontaine, Norma Shearer, Marjorie Main and Rosalind Russell. All of these actresses weren’t actresses at all, but men in drag.
Here, we come to see the many ways these freaks are laughing at us, and trying to deceive us, and present us as misfits. McAllister TV not only dissects the dialogue and plot lines, but also the many bizarre inside jokes, like a fashion show, featuring detached hands and symbols suggesting adrenochrome. In other words, massive Hollywood deception and subterfuge is revealed.
