The Killing of Sister George

Monday, April 23, 2012

Introduced by Moe Angelos!

35mm print “The story of three consenting adults in the privacy of their own home!” proclaimed the poster for this brilliant 1968 lesbian classic about a sadistic soap opera actress whose relationship with a much younger lover crumbles when her TV character is “killed off.” It stars the magnificent Beryl Reid, sexy Susannah York and Coral Browne (Vincent Price’s beard) and was directed by Robert Aldrich (Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?). Lady Bunny will not be presenting as originally scheduled. We look forward to welcoming her back at a later date.

  • Rating NR
  • Year 1968
