Desc:This is, and I do not say this lightly, the most incredibly gay moment of the entire 1950's.

Gayer than J. Edgar Hoover. Gayer than Liberace. Gayer than Rock Hudson. Gayer than Paul Lynde.

In all fairness, this is before people knew that gay people existed.

chumbucket - 2009-03-18
Yes. Yes. Yes. and oh my WORD YES!

kiint - 2009-03-18
gayer than Rip Taylor?

baleen - 2009-03-18

I own this movie mainly because of this scene.

TeenerTot - 2009-03-18
gayer than WWE?

dead_cat - 2011-07-20
Not quite.

Bort - 2009-03-18
Dr. Doom with fashion sense.

Funny how a little thing like wearing lavender spats could get you a reputation back in the day.
HURF BLURF DUH - 2009-03-18
This is very gay and all, but I'm having a hard time believing that the gayest moment of the 50's did not involve Allen Ginsberg in some way.
Merzbau - 2009-03-18
This is gayer than Alan Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady performing the Isosceles Lock.

Merzbau - 2009-03-18
gah, ALLEN. i typ rel gud

Merzbau - 2009-03-18
And I suppose one of those would be extraneous to the Isosceles Lock. So I guess Neal Cassady gets to watch.

Camonk - 2009-03-19
Well, Alan IS the proper way to spell it, so you made an honest mistake.

This is possibly my favorite movie of all time. That's Hans Conreid, who played Captain Hook and Snidely Whiplash. One of the all time great villain voice actors.

Trust me, this sequence is as High Camp as the rest of the film. It is unrelenting and never lets up. It's a definite must see.
cognitivedissonance - 2009-03-18
Also, doesn't he look uncannily like Michael Showalter?

sparklefatty - 2009-03-18
This is all the gay I'll be needing for a while, but thanks for the suggestion.

UnderANeonHalo - 2009-03-18
Thanks for reminding me that I haven't watched this movie in quite a while.
Robert DeNegro - 2009-03-18
Thanks a lot. Now I"M gay.

If I remember correctly, Dr. T is such a fine example of Infinite Gayness that the kid's mother has gone head-over-heels as his willing slave/prisoner/assistant.



Semi-Spoiler:

This is the kid's interpretation of his piano teacher; the real version (the real one in the movie, I mean) is slightly less fey. That much I do remember.

Lurchi - 2009-03-19
It does make it look pretty appealing.
Sean Robinson - 2009-03-19
Wanting to look good doesn't make you a homosexual, although it is pretty telling that that is the conclusion you folks would jump to.
Merzbau - 2009-03-19
It's less the desire to look good and more the wide array of gaudily-colored ladies' clothing (such as a lady would wear)

Sean Robinson - 2009-03-19
Huh, some folks just aren't man enough to wear the colour of kings, purple.

Merzbau - 2009-03-19
and the garment of queens, the bodice

SharoKham - 2009-03-31
I enjoy jumping to the conclusion of imagining Sean dressed in the various pieces of clothing mentioned in the song. So far, peek-a-boo blouse is my favorite.

Camonk - 2009-03-19
Sooooo Do-Mi-Do is one of the earliest documented euphemisms for gay sex, right?
Bort - 2009-12-29
Decades later, it finally dawned on me that "Do-Mi-Do" is three musical notes.

j lzrd / swift idiot - 2009-03-19
That's just about the queerest thing I have ever seen. Ever.
Syd Midnight - 2009-03-19
If someone ever gets a pile of drag queens together to re-shoot this movie, I hope they also perform one of the WW2 shorts Dr Seuss made about killing Nazis.
Mayberry Pancakes - 2009-03-20
I am disappointed that he didn't actually get a pink organza bodice. Come on, guys. You heard him.
oogaBooga - 2009-05-16
Oh what he would look like if he actually put on every single thing he spoke about.

Bort - 2009-06-06
A pink BROCADED bodice can be found here:

I don't get all this talk that Dr. T is gay. He is simply so intent on the perfect execution of his villainous plan (to make 500 children play at a piano recital) that he wants to look his very best. That's definitely worth an organdy snood or two.

Lurchi - 2009-03-21
It's a tie between this and the 8mm John Wayne/Sal Mineo bondage rape movie.
JimL2 - 2009-03-25
For years, I thought I dreamed this movie. It is far more insane, and frightening, than it really needs to be.
Syd Midnight - 2009-04-01
This is still one of the greatest things on PoeTV and we need more from this movie
KnowFuture - 2009-08-28
Even the set is gay.

Hey, the whole movie's on Hulu:
