Women He’s Undressed

Gillian Armstrong 2015 Australia 99min english

Women He’s Undressed tells the larger than life story of Orry-Kelly, an Australian costume designer to stars like Gene Kelly, Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis, and Katharine Hepburn. At a time when gay men were closeted, Kelly immigrated to New York to find fame and fortune first as a set designer and then a costume designer. His penchant for running his mouth and cutting a larger than life figure endeared him to a number of major Hollywood stars, while he quietly maintained personal relationships with a number of closeted actors. Intercut with interviews from Hollywood insiders close to Kelly including Jane Fonda and Angela Lansbury and a campy monologue illustrating his early life in Australia, escapades in prohibition-era New York, and in the Golden Age of Hollywood cinema, this docudrama helps to illuminate the life of one of Hollywood’s forgotten socialites, one who was as intensely private as he was flamboyantly engaging. – Clinton Glenn
