Never mind about the six feet, let's talk about the seven inches






Myra Breckinridge (1970), the screen adaptation of Gore Vidal's 1968 novel. Starring Mae West as Leticia Van Allen, John Huston as Buck Loner, Raquel Welch as Myra Breckinridge and Rex Reed as Myron Breckinridge. Directed by Mike Sarne.


Fabulously bizzare from start to finish.


Mae West sings You Gotta Taste All the Fruit to a go-go beat



Now playing: Cameo - She's Strange

I love this movie. It's always saddened me that so few people seem to appreciate it. Wonderful performance by the underrated Raquel Welch.

Have you seen "Sextette" with Mae West? It is hysterically camp and bizarre too.

I adore this movie, it's much more fun than I was led to believe! Especially while high, I hasten to add.
