Allan Carr: What a Hoot
I was in my early 20s when I attended one of his fabulous parties in the Hollywood Hills, must have been a year or two after Can't Stop the Music. Ann Miller was there and a few other old time celebs, but after 1am most of the heteros left and it was an all male bacchanal. I was so impressed and horrified at the same time.
He was very touchy-feely towards any guy he had the hots for, but I don't think he followed through with any of them. Thankfully I never had to get it up for him as I was a guest of another tv/theater producer. He seemed like an old queen with too much money and caftans, not my type at all.
Anyone have any memories to share from the late 70s or 80s?

Allan Carr turned both Russell Todd and Howard McGillin GAY
They were married to women BEFORE they met Allan Carr
After they met Allan both turned gay

Sounds like he gave great parties. In classic Hollywood fashion, ugly rich guy with lots of pretty boys hanging around. Such a decadent city.

Op, why was Alan Carr feeling up Olivia Newton-John’s boyfriend, Matt Lattanzi??

I first heard of Alan Carr from one of Dennis Miller’s rants (this one was when he guested on Politically Incorrect) with his random ass pop culture references. Then I did some research on who he was — no wonder he was a DL icon.
They did a Grease: Behind Close Doors on REELZ fairly recently. What a bloated coked up mess he was.

He is a fabulous story. I would like to see a Biography on him.

R10 just read the book
Russell Todd and Howard McGillin both talk about how Allan turned them both gay (while they were married to women)

We have Grease and La Cage (Broadway) to thank Allan for. I know people like to shit on him for that awful Oscar show with Snow White, but he did gift the gays with some cultural moments, oh, and don't forget Can't Stop the Music with Bruce/Caitlin.

We have Allan to thank for Howard McGillin's huge penis being set free.

[R17], one of my friends was a producer on that doc. He let me watch a rough cut before it was released, and I remember telling him that Carr didn't seem like the most upstanding guy. I recall a lot of cartoon sequences, and my friend was pretty upset that Ann-Margret wouldn't participate, as she and her husband had been close to Carr for many years.

Wasn't he the originally source of the gay caftan meme here on DL? Pretty sure he was.

Besides the obvious BDF, how do we know Howard McGillin’s penis is huge? Any pics?...

I read a biography of Carr a few years ago but do not recall the title. Lots of caftan pics. He wold balloon up and slim down.
OP did you go to the basement disco?

He was a self-indulgent pig and a chicken hawk. He made my skin crawl. He put the moves on a couple of my friends while in SF shooting CSTM. I warned them to stay away.

the Allen Carr doc referred to earlier (Fabulous Allen Carr) has been on Amazon Prime and is loads of fun to watch. As enjoyable - though totally different tone and vibe - as the Scotty Bowers doc. Recommended!

He really got even with Rock Hudson at the end of his life. Allan wanted him for a role in La Cage on broadway. rock expressed interest initially but then got the aids diagnosis and left allan hanging and eventually signed for 10 episodes of Dynasty. He thought he could physically do that but not broadway. He couldnt tell Carr the reason as Carr would have it all over town in 10 minutes. Carr spread the gossip anyway over what he suspected. Carr was not well liked in showbiz circles especially. I imagine he was king of the casting couch for a while. I WILL say Allan Carr had excellent tastes in personal residences/

Allan Carr is a jealous pig of a man. He is a prime example of why people hate the mincing gay fem types.

Matt Lattanzi sounds gay as a goose in that clip, no wonder his film career went dead shortly thereafter. He gave off a gay vibe with that voice, but he was married to ONJ. I don't think she needed to beard for anyone.

R11 Can a person be 'turned gay?' Wouldn't they be turned into a bisexual? I thought that once a man enjoys a relationship with a woman, he can no longer be considered gay. There is no such thing as 'strictly gay'; you are or you aren't. I'm reminded of the phrase 'a little bit pregnant.'

Allan Carr hired many gay actors over the years and launched more than a few careers. He is not that bad in the scheme of things.

Frank DeCaro mentioned in the documentary that Carr convinced Baskin Robbins to release a Village People-flavored ice cream to promote their movie called "Can't Stop the Nuts," which is wrong on very, many levels.
Call me nuts, but I don't think America was ready for the Village People's unstoppable nuts!

He was on a talk-show with Edna Everage back in the 80s.
It seems something sleazy happened backstage and Edna was very cold saying that she never had to do what he did and that was BUY friends.

Who was Christopher Atkins having sex with in the famous video?
Any more news on Russell Todd? Didn’t know he was gay. He was sexy as hell in Friday the 13th Part II.

Watched the documentary last night. Really enjoyed it. He certainly had issues but seemed like a nice guy. It's ironic that after his Oscars' show, the Academy received a letter signed by lots of actors complaining how it was the worst thing ever. I wonder how those still alive feel about it now in the age of dragging in unsuspecting tourists to be treated like peasants.
