"Sitting Pretty" ( 1948) and Clifton Webb- The gayest movie ever played straight .

I am watching it now on TCM. Both Webb and Richard Haydn are playing gay to the tenth degree. And Webb is minding children. Was the postwar audience that naive? Or they saw it for what it was. Richard Haydn plays every gay stereotypes and Webb is gay in drag. I love it. And Robert Young and Maureen O'Hara are in on the joke. (Aside here). She is so beautiful, even in black and white. And the screenwriter(s) wrote lines that the censors were too blind to see. And it is clearly a family movie. Watch it.
