The highly quotable campy gay classic from the last days of the era before the Stonewall Riots. Michael (Kenneth Nelson) throws a birthday party for Harold (Leonard Frey) and invites their crowd of gay friends. In attendance are Donald (Frederick Combs), whose homosexuality has put him into therapy; Emory (Cliff Gorman), a flaming queen; Bernard (Reuben Greene), a black bookstore clerk; Hank (Laurence Luckinbill), a teacher who's separated from his wife; and Larry (Keith Prentice), his boyfriend, who doesn't think their relationship should mean that he has to stop sleeping around. Things are complicated by the arrival of Alan (Peter White), Michael's presumably straight friend from collegee, and Cowboy (Robert La Tourneaux), a prostitute who is Emory's birthday present for Harold.

Written by Mart Crowley and based on his play of the same name, directed by William Friedkin, who went on to direct The Exorcist. Tragically, several of the cast members are now dead from AIDS. Rated R for a lot of sex talk and a brief bare butt shot.
