The Clox Box

because random rocks.

I really like old movies. Any old movie, but lately silents from the 20s, and the first talkies in the 30s. I'm discovering so many awesome and weird movies and some really cool actors and actresses that most people have forgot about. And sexy movies, before the motion picture production code went into effect, boy howdy! Lots of old timey lesbian subtext.

Especially with Garbo; after she died, a bunch of her lesbian lovers came out and admitted to their affairs. Despite her love of ladies, Garbo nearly married frequent co-star John Gilbert, both seen here in Flesh & the Devil.

..which itself is a movie full of gay subtext, surprising for 1926.

Although she ditched him on their wedding day, they went on to make many more movies together. Bit fucked up, right? Poor Gilbert died an alcoholic, unable to find a role in the new horizon of talking motion pictures. Poor dude. He was a good actor.

Anyway, here's some sexy dancing from a Greta Garbo movie, Mata Hari.

  1. i like kissing scene :D

  2. I don't know what to say bro lol.

  4. I think they liked that stuff in 1930s Hollywood. My grandfather was out there and he left the town cause he felt it was too gay.

  5. I love old movies, good clips bro.

  6. It's a little surprising that all the gay/lesbian subtext was perfectly kosher in the '20s/'30s. We must've hit a point in society where it suddenly became completely taboo, and we're only now getting past that again.

  7. Greata Garbo in her time was the top favorite actress even know she has a great audience.
