„Na to, aby ste chceli ísť do postele s Catherine Deneuve, nemusíte byť opitá. A je jedno, s kým ste spávali dovtedy,“ komentuje Susan Sarandon svoju rolu v „upírsko-lesbickom“ filme Hlad z roku 1982 v dokumente Zakázané plátno Ameriky, ktorý príťažlivým spôsobom približuje dejiny zobrazovania homosexuality a homosexuálov v hollywoodskej kinematografii od začiatkov 20. storočia až po 90. roky, od výsmechu a pohŕdanie, cez subtexty až po filmy s otvorene homosexuálnou tematikou.

“You wouldn’t have to get drunk to bed Catherine Deneuve, I don’t care what your sexual history to that point had been”, comments Susan Sarandon on her role in “vampire-lesbian” film The Hunger (1982). This attitude arises from a long-term covering-up and negative portraying ofhomosexuality, but also from a gradual inconspicuous inserting of homosexual subtexts into films like Ben Hur, under a strict supervision of the Hays Code and the catholic Legion of Decency. Many film industry personalities give their views on how films have been influencing a public inperceiving homosexuality. Commentary is read by Lily Tomlin, one of the first outed lesbian in the film world.
