Description
Based on the autobiography of the same name, this television movie chronicles the life and times of Quentin Crisp, an outrageously flamboyant gay man who comes of age and grows into old age in conservative England. John Hurt won a BAFTA TV Award in 1976 for his portrayal of the camp icon, and a 2000 survey by the British Film Institute placed the movie in their top 10 televised dramas of all time.

"If you came out during the past 20—or even 30—years, there's no way you can really appreciate the primal fierceness of Denis Charles Pratt, who back in 1931 gave himself the glamorous name of Quentin Crisp and began tooling around London in full makeup…. John Hurt played Crisp to dazzling effect in the 1975 film adaptation of Crisp's memoir."—The Advocate
