Frightening the Horses is a celebration of gay cinema, from the “undercover” icons of the 40s and 50s, and the sexual revolution of the 60s and 70s, to the more explicit films of the last 30 years. It embraces all gay and gay–themed movies—as well as the subtexts, the in–jokes, and the coded messages that run through film–world culture. Chapters include: Forbidden Topics, Circumventing the Censor, Gay Icons, Public Versus Private Lives, and Out of the Closet, and extended treatment is given to cult stars like James Dean, Judy Garland, Joan Crawford, River Phoenix, Keanu Reeves, and Madonna. Featuring 80 photos, film stills, and posters, as well as a complete filmography, Frightening the Horses is a marvelous guide to some of the most subversive and provocative movies of the last hundred years.
