This has been my motto since the
first time I watched this movie and
it still is! I don't know why anyone
would allow someone to be a part
of their lives who
expected/demanded editing! One
thing is for sure I DON'T!
Aging is soooooo Tragic!
Especially for a Gay man. In order to be able to get thru
this tragedy I believe you must have at least one of
three things--preferably all three. Money, A Lover, & A
Lot Of Fabulous Friends!
Torch Song Trilogy (1988)
CHECK OUT THE TRAILER
Tony Award-winning actor and
re-creates his role as
the unsinkable Arnold Beckoff in this
film adaptation of the smash Broadway
personal story that is both funny and
poignant, TORCH SONG TRILOGY
chronicles a New Yorker's search for
love, respect and tradition in a world
that seems not especially made for him
. From Arnold's hilarious steps toward
domestic bliss with a reluctant school
teacher, to his first truly promising love
affair with a young fashion model,
Arnold's greatest challenge remains his
complicated relationship with his mother.
But armed with a keenly developed sense
of humor and oftentimes piercing wit,
Arnold continues to test the commonly
accepted terms of endearment--and
endurance--in a universally affecting
story that confirms that happiness is
well worth carrying a torch for.Written
There are several quotes from this movie that I love!
Arnold: I think my biggest problem is being young and
beautiful. It's my biggest problem because I've never
been young and beautiful. Oh, I've been beautiful, and
God knows I've been young, but never the twain have
Arnold: A ugly person who goes after a pretty person
gets nothing but trouble. But a pretty person who goes
after a ugly person gets at least cab fare.
Bertha Vanation: Personally, I never enjoy sex with
someone I know!
Arnold: I know you'll find this hard to comprehend, but I
want more out of life than meeting a pretty face and
sitting down on it.
My Favorite and the one I have always lived by:
Arnold: You want to be a part of my life, I'm not editing
out the parts you don't like.
If you happen to be one of the unfortunate people that
have not seen this movie I suggest you rent or buy it
