A movie about the life of pioneering drag performer Danny La Rue is being made. From Variety: “Danny La Rue made a career out of his comic vaudeville drag act, rising to fame in the 1960s through celebrity impersonations of Elizabeth Taylor and Zsa Zsa Gabor. He hosted his own TV series, broke records with his weekly Saturday night live show from the London Palladium and featured in theater productions in London’s West End such as Oh, What a Lovely War and Hello, Dolly. ‘Danny’s life is such a fascinating story because he was a pioneer and he blurred boundaries of sex and taste,’ Argonon CEO James Burstall told Variety. Executive producer Joey Attawia said, ‘Danny was a ground-breaking entertainer and a vital part of contemporary British popular history, which until now has been overlooked. We’re thrilled to have signed agreements with Annie Galbraith and other key intimates of Danny to bring this funny, moving and complex story to life.'” Can’t wait!
