Storyline

Jack is 24, sometimes he's a drag queen named Sabrina. In 1967, as Sabrina, he's the mistress of ceremonies at a national drag queen contest in New York City. The camera goes behind the scenes, recording the rehearsals leading up to the contest, the conversations in the dressing room (about draft boards, sexual identity and sex-change operations, and being a drag queen), and the jealousies that emerge before and after the competition. Jack introduces us to Richard, a young man who becomes Jack's protégé. As Miss Harlow, Richard enters the contest. One of his principal competitors is Miss Crystal, who's from Manhattan. Who will win the crown? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Must See films for any underground film enthusiast
1 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got a rare chance to catch this film projected on 35mm film back in 1994 at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco. It was totally cool to see a reality slice of the NY underground drag world at that time, esp. before the Stonewall liberation riots. I highly recommend this film to anyone that is interested in underground cinema from the 60s thru the 80s. Its different than 'Paris is Burning' in that this film almost seems as though they decided to just put the footage together after it was shot and make a film. The footage is rough and shaky and most of the film is hand held. I think that this quality gives the film much more credibility as a true account of the times rather than one that was geared just to entertain the curious public. ANDY WARHOL makes a cameo appearance in one of the shots in the film as the camera pans onto the audience sitting down, THERE HE IS, sitting in a chair in the audience. Its very quick, so keep an eye out for his platinum wig!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
