The Boys in the Band (1970) Film Review

The Boys in the Band
DIRECTOR: William Friedkin
BOTTOM LINE: As we saw in the 2020 remake, Mart Crowley’s play “The Boys in the Band” has stood the test of time beautifully. The tragic epilogue is that the five real-life gay actors were all unemployable in major roles after the film’s release and all died of AIDS-related illnesses within seven years of one another in the late eighties and early nineties.
POST TITLE: Twenty-Seven Queer Films 1967-1976. Queer Cinema Comes Out.
