Storyline

Using archival footage of and interviews about fashion designer and icon Halston (1932-1990), Whitney Smith looks at the 1970s in Manhattan. Smith is interested in the parties and the excess, which contrast with Halston's minimalist lines. There is a rough chronology for Halston: from milliner to couture to an unsuccessful attempt to bring his designs to the customers of J.C. Penney. The principal focus is on the world of Studio 54 and Halston's part in it. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Ghastly Creep makes film about Ghastly Queen
10 June 2012 | by (London) – See all my reviews

And manages to leave all the sex and drugs out after flaunting that as the tag line Believe me the sex and drugs part would have been the only reason to make this film The film maker thinks he a form of Louis Theroux who ain't worth having a clone of anyway ... But would have made a more interesting film than this Liza Minelli denying knowing about the drugs and sex in Studio 54 ... Give me a break This really is a complete fiasco that is too scared to tell the truth ... About anything Lets just hope this creep never gets the chance to make another one of these things ... Whatever they are And the most of the people involved in the interviews need to learn a bit about honesty or just not bother
