The Queen

0 Love It
Save it
An outlandish documentary which follows the arrival, preparation for, and participation in the 1967 Drag Miss All American Beauty Queen Contest of a bunch of international hopefuls. The men come into town, lounge about, then dress up and sally out on stage as girls. Breasts created by flesh-cramping sellotape squeeze out of swim-suits; rivalries created by a pursuit for the title shriek around backstage; Sylvia goes bananas and the audience go wild. A rocky horror show indeed.
