Staircase (1969)

My Rating

Movie Info

Homosexuality is only incidentally important in this drama of dependence and intimacy between two aging hair stylists, and nothing shocking to staid and heterosexual sensibilities takes place in this movie, a star turn for Richard Burton and Rex Harrison. Whether the original play was as patently offensive to actual homosexuals as this movie is, is open to question. What is certain is that it grossly exaggerates every unpleasant "fag" stereotype in the books, However, the lead actors skillfully

Harrison and Burton give the central relationship a lived-in quality and a gentleness that can be devastating in the film's rare but welcome quiet moments.
