"Tired Old Queen At The Movies" Steve Hayes Visits The SSO on Saturday, October 22, and Sunday, October 23...

Postby Sue Sue Applegate » October 14th, 2016, 9:23 pm

The lively Steve Hayes will visit us here at the Silver Screen Oasis on Saturday, October 22, and Sunday, October 23, for a traditional Q & A.

Steve is known as the self-styled king of classic cinema enthusiasm, and has been sharing his love of Hollywood's Golden Era gems on Youtube since 2009 with his "Tired Old Queen of the Movies" series.

Steve reveals all about Joseph Mankiewicz' s "A Letter To Three Wives" (1949) featuring Ann Sothern, Linda Darnell, Jeanne Crain, Kirk Douglas, Connie Gilchrist, and Thelma Ritter...

In a 2010 interview with Medusamorlock on the TCM website feature The Movie Morlocks, Steve reveals he's an accomplished actor in movies — Trick, The Big Gay Musical — an author and lyricist ("Kiss Me Quick Before the Lava Reaches the Village"), award-winning comedian and cabaret performer, a performing arts educator (Cabaret Convention at Yale, Cazenovia College), a talented musical comedy Renaissance man. He’s also a veteran of NYC’s annual Gayfest theatre festival, and his one-man show Steve Hayes’ Hollywood Reunion was about his relationship, as a gay man, with old movies, a topic that also informs his Tired Old Queen productions.

As Steve shares in the article: '…my dear friend and director Vincent J. Cardinal kept telling me that I should be sharing my love for old movies with a bigger audience. He suggested we set a camera up in my apartment; shoot me talking about old movies just off the top of my head, exactly as I always do everywhere and anywhere. No fuss, no muss. Keep it simple. Then he said: 'Now, what should we call it?' I said; 'STEVE HAYES: Tired Old Queen at the Movies!' I want to 'pass the torch,' so to speak, to the next generation. When I first moved to New York, I learned a lot from the older gay men who loved the movies as I did and shared their views and turned me on to films I’d never experienced before. I’m forever grateful.

“STEVE HAYES: Tired Old Queen at the Movies” is, quite simply, a love letter to the old movies. 'I have been a devout movie addict since I was very young and have never wavered in my adoration and genuine awe of the classic motion pictures I grew up watching. I always say, I know this stuff like straight guys know baseball. Some baseball fan will say to me: 'I know who played in the 1941 World Series!' And my comeback is; 'I know who won Best Supporting Actress in 1941 and who she got it over!' "

Steve was also a guest host on Turner Classic Movies to celebrate TCM's 20th Anniversary in 2014, introducing the sci-fi classic, “Them!" with Robert Osborne...

Steve, we are so happy you are visiting us this weekend. I was wondering when you first realized that you could do such fabulous impressions. Did you begin by mimicking family members or cartoon characters or friends?
