Bernard Braden interviews Quentin Crisp (1968)

"Filmed the year 'The Naked Civil Servant' was first published, and before he had become a household name, this very rare footage of Quentin Crisp was filmed as part of a series of interviews by Bernard Braden which were never broadcast.

In these rushes, an unusually restrained Crisp reveals his renowned wit and unconventional opinions when asked some imaginative questions about whether homosexuals would make good world leaders and whether gay men write better parts for actresses than straight men. He also talks about the misogyny inherent in British culture, comparing it with homophobia. (Alex Davidson)"
