Dry Kisses Only

Kaucyila Brooke and Jane Cottis

1990, 75:00 minutes, colour, English


Dry Kisses Only is a hilarious, eccentric feature length tribute to the lesbian subplots that subverted so many classic Hollywood films. From this vantage point, the particular charms of Garbo, Deitrich, Hepburn, Bette Davis and others are revealed in no uncertain terms, confirming what you only dared to half-suspect: Dishy, irreverent, ironic, and wistful, this tape turns Eddie into Edie in "All About Eve," and Eve suddenly makes a lot more sense.
