The Tailor-Made Man

2 Male, 0 Female

Claudio Macor Price: $16.95

This full-length two-hander tells the powerful true story about the Hollywood studio system and its hypocrisy and the star who gave up everything for the man he loved

William “Billy” Haines was a popular silent screen MGM movie star who was fired by Louis B Mayer because he was gay and refused to give up his lifelong partner, Jimmie Shields, and marry the silent screen vamp Pola Negri

As punishment, his studio photographs were destroyed and his films removed from release and sealed in the MGM vaults in an attempt to erase him completely from movie history

Never to be seen again

But despite all this, Billy and Jimmy’s turbulent and passionate love affair survived for more than 50 years

The Tailor-Made Man tells their story
