Title: 70's London Pub Entertainment.
Post by: Jonny on 12 Apr 2008 - 14:03
I was watching Alan Gibson's 1970 film 'Goodbye Gemini' (Twinsanity) last night and about 10 minutes in Judy Geeson and her twin brother visit a pub. Entertaining the crowded establishment was a skinny transvestite skipping along the top of the bar undressing...

It wasn't just the thought of this being typical 70's London pub entertainment that raised my eyebrows it was the fact that I'd seen a similar scene in Massimo Dallamano's 'The Secret of Dorian Gray' also made in 1970.

Had to check if was the same guy and funnily enough it isn't just the same guy, it's the same pub too!

Same clock on the wall in both

Is this just sheer coincidence? Or was there someone working on both films that thought it'd be a good idea to use this guy and the pub again?

I think it's just a coincidence myself.

Me too, odd how it popped up in two films I'd not seen before. Both of which I watched in the past two weeks.
