"This spectacular pictorial history examines the grand tradition of male cross-dressing in the movies. The screen's greatest stars, from comedians like Buster Keaton and Peter Sellers to 'serious' actors like Marlon Brando and Max von Sydow, are pictured in everything from bustiers to ball gowns. Just as in real life, the cinematic motives for cross-dressing are complex, ranging from plot device and social commentary to the simple sight gags of Laurel and Hardy." Text by Jean-Louis Ginibre; foreword by John Lithgow; edited by Barbara Cady. 408 pages; 700 b&w and color photos; 9.5 x 13 inches.
