That movie was essentially the Star Wars of its day. It was incredible, an unimaginable achievement. And it STILL WORKS. Yes the sets are primitive today, but the movie isn’t. The writing is great. The acting is great. The music is great. It has a raw emotional power that persevered through the ages. This kind of thing should never be messed with in my opinion.

it holds up better than star wars

there is nothing wrong with loving Judy, she loved her queer fans so much, she often married gay men.

being a friend of Dorothy was a huge part of gay male culture and identity for decades, like Being Ernest and wearing a green tie
