First Major Film To Portray Homosexuality in a Mature Way.
The Boys In The Band is my favorite all-time movie. It still sends a message and holds up well even in this decade. Every actor in this cast is perfect for the character they play. This film may have been the first major film to portray homosexuality in a mature way and still is the best film above all. This is not a disgusting film. It is honest and dramatic. I have seen this film several times through different ages and chapters of my life. I get more out of it each time. Sadly, most of the cast, Robert La Tourneaux, Leonard Frey, Frederick Combs, Keith Prentice, Kenneth Nelson and Cliff Gorman are no longer with us. All men should see this film. The best instrumental version of "The Look Of Love" by Burt Bacharach can be heard here. I wish "The Boys In The Band" could be restored and re-issued on VHS video and for DVD.
