Filmed in 1968 the same year “The Naked Civil Servant” was first published. This was before he had became a household name. Here we have very rare footage captured (never broadcast) of Quentin Crisp filmed as part of a series of interviews by Bernard Braden.
In these rushes.. An unusually restrained Quentin Crisp reveals his renowned wit and unconventional opinions. When Braden asked some imaginative questions about whether or not homosexuals would make good world leaders..
Another question was whether or not gay men write better parts for actresses than straight men do. Mr Crisp also talks about the misogyny inherent in British culture, comparing it to homophobia. Very interesting, but odd interview.
