To Wong Foo…

… Thanks For Everything! Julie Newmar

wongfoo

– this is such a FAB film!

I’ve been a fan of it for years and, in light of today’s news on the sad passing of Patrick Swayze, I have suddenly re-remembered it and intend to dig out my old VHS copy to watch as soon as I can.

Although, for me,  Swayze’s defining role will always be Sam in “Ghost” (I really disliked Dirty Dancing, though do like his song ‘She’s Like The Wind’), I would rate this as my second favourite piece of his work (and lets face it, compared to Ghost, second is not a ‘losing’ place!).

Below is a YouTube clip showing what someone has termed the ‘funniest’ bits of To Wong Foo…

For anyone who has not yet seen it, I’d recommend – dare I say it, but I actually prefer this film to Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert!

  1. I feel Priscilla is far superior, being much more original, produced on a tiny budget and yet getting international recognition and an oscar. This feels like a cheap american knock off. The characters aren’t very believable and the story doesn’t really go anywhere. I still love it though 🙂

    Classic film, and while a bit of a knockoff of Priscilla I think it stands on it’s own as a good film.

    My favourite bit has to be the “Day with the Girls” or when Noxema grabbed the guys balls and leads him around the town to apologize!
