In honor of Billy Haines birthday this month, take a look back on a clip from “Out of the Closet, Off The Screen: The Life of William Haines”, the 2001 AMC documentary that traces the origins of Billy Haines, America’s number one box office star, and the impact his sexuality had on his film career.

  1. 'His homosexual lover'…oh yes, because we also talk about people's heterosexuals lovers as in life partners….And oh: while Hollywood was/is filled with gay men and women they strongly opted people to get a fake life.
    And while they opted gay people not to come out, they themselves partied in pedofile circles…..Hollywood executives are the most vile people one will ever encounter…ok..GOP is also high up thee.

  2. The blonde moderator in this clip is none other than Christina Crawford, Joan Crawford’s daughter; if I’m not mistaken Mr. Haines became a very successful, well respected, celebrated and sought after interior designer/decorator for many Hollywood Stars.

  3. I’ve never disliked a video so quickly.

    So much hate speech in less then 20 seconds.

    homosexual is a derogatory and racist word used by the cis-supremacist of the auld-right to degrade, marginalize and oppress the 🏳️‍🌈 community, but in particular trans-women of color.

    Offensive words like homosexual are just as bigoted and hateful as using: biological, chromosome, facts, no bb, and pedophile.
