As late as 1958, homosexuality couldn't be mentioned in a movie, as proven by the elaborate rituals the producers of Tennessee Williams' swampy drama Cat on a Hot Tin Roof used to evade the obvious fact that its hero, as played by Paul Newman, was playing it gay.
Cinema emerged from its celluloid closet in 1960 and has since allowed many cult icons into America's mainstream: gay cowboys, gay Nazis, S&M fetish groups and women in love with each other. 50 Years of Queer Cinema documents it all, focusing on cinema's most intriguing queer films.
