My real name is Floyd Lewis. I was born in Macon, Georgia. My mother died when I was three years old. I don't know who my father is. My life is a fiction... all made up, my dears. No cleaning woman. No family named Bernstein. All fiction. Only the "gay" is real. My trade is real. My tricks are real. I've been brutalized physically and mentally. I really am out of my mind. So, please, let me stay under the covers. I just want to stay under the covers.

This is not a great film but it is sweet and has it's moments. It also has a cast of soon to be stars. While it was interesting to see Shelley Winters when she could still pull off dark hair, it was even more interesting to see a young Christopher Walken and a young Jeff Goldblum. Also seen are Vincent Schiavelli of character actor fame and an almost microsecond uncredited cameo by Bill Murray.
The movie isn't great but for a movie fan its worth the time if for no other reason to see if you can spot all of the soon to be's.
