The original Broadway production of "Entertaining Mr. Sloane" by Joe Orton opened at the Lyceum Theater in New York on October 12, 1965 and ran for 13 performances. The Joe Orton play was the basis for the screenplay by Clive Exton for the movie version. See more »
[to Ed (having just murdered Ed's father)]
You wouldn't put me away, would you?... I'm impressionable. Think what the nick would do to me. I'd pick up criminal connections.

I first saw EMr.S as a teenager who had just come out of the closet. As a child I was a fan of '60s horror films (Carradine, Cushing, et.al.) and black comedies (e.g., "No Way to Treat a Lady") and suspense/murder ("Eye of the Cat" or "Wylie", "What Happened to Aunt Alice?", "Daddy's Gone a Hunting", "Who Killed Teddy Bear?"). EMr.S, at least as I remember it after 20 years, combined those genres. The title character, handsome and bi-sexual, added the homo-eroticism that made for a very happy young gay movie fan indeed. It also led me to learn that the Brits were years ahead of Hollywood in the treatment of gay characters in movies, and I now count "Who Killed Sister George?" and "The Leather Boys" as other personal favorites.
