Behind the man
19 March 2007 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Just picked up this DVD in a bin at WalMart. I had never heard of the film, but glad I've added it to my collection. Although it does touch on Lee's homosexuality and the palimony suit of one of his many boyfriends, it also touches, lightly, on what actually made him the famous man he was. In a time when being gay was not accepted openly by anyone in show biz, he tried to keep things quiet - but the love of his mother and his obviously flamboyant way on stage kept the tongues wagging. After awhile people didn't care one way or another, they just loved his music and his show biz style. Classic Maureen Stapleton plays his mother and Saul Rubinek is interesting as his last manager. If you kind of flip through the soap opera script, you can still sit back and enjoy the music, which I believe is actually him playing.
