DON & CHRIS

Attended a screening of CHRIS & DON: A LOVE STORY, a stunning documentary about the lives and loves of partners, Christopher Isherwood and Don Bachardy. It is now playing in New York, will open in Los Angeles the 4th of July and around the country during the summer. CHRIS & DON is informative, witty, intriguing, sentimental, and entertaining. It took Guido Santi and Tina Mascara, the filmmakers, ten years to create this extraordinary film. They are to be congratulated.

The film interests me probably because I have met the pair, interviewed Don [see several posts below], and can relate to Chris, the writer. I can also relate to Don, more so, and in several ways. One being that I was as star struck as he was when I was a kid – still am! Like Don, when I was a teen, I loved going backstage and getting my picture taken with the stars. In another way, I understand Don’s attraction of having an older gentleman take an interest in you and provide mentorship and life experience. Though unlike Don, I had several gentlemen, but not a solid love as Don and Chris had.

It might be time to call on Don again for another interview ……
