Michael Sarrazin: In the Most Homophobic Movie of All Time?
Born in 1940, he spent the 1960s miscast in Westerns before starring with Jane Fonda in the misnamed They Shoot Horses, Don't They (1969), which is not about shooting horses; it's about the angst-ridden, desperate lives of contestants in a Depression-era dance marathon.
Spoiler alert: in The Reincarnation of Peter Proud (1975), which was a big hit in my high school, he makes out with Jennifer O'Neal, only to discover that he's the reincarnation of her father!
The Seduction (1982): tv reporter is stalked by a one-night stand.
Mascara (1987): crossdressing police officer has a thing for his sister.
The Phone Call (1989): straight guy calls the wrong phone sex line and is stalked by a gay queen, in what has been called the most homophobic movies of all time.
I'm still going with Chuck and Buck as the most homophobic movie of all time.
