#74: The Fox (1967)

Movie #74 – 09 April 2012
The Fox (USA – 1967) Directed by Mark Rydell

“…While the movie’s story has the dreaded ending that so many movies featuring lesbians has (at the end one of the characters goes off with a man, redeemed at last), it’s still of historical significance. Coming at the height of the massive cultural change of the 1960s, this was one of the first post-code major Hollywood studio attempts to address lesbianism on-screen in a mature manner. It anticipates by several years the revolution in film-making of the early 1970s of nuanced, realistic looks at individual lives, questioning ethics and morality.”
