Item description for Ladies or Gentlemen: A Pictorial History of Male Cross-Dressing in the Movies by Jean-Louis Ginibre...

In Ladies or Gentlemen, male cross-dressing goes to the movies, and its photographs effortlessly generate their share of smiles. More important, however, are the book's rare photographs of cinematic cross-dressing---culled from archives all over the world with more than half never seen before---cover a panorama of over 90 years of international film production. Ginibre's Ladies or Gentlemen, the product of 30 years of research, is an impressive work, and, through its 400 pages and 700 photos, examines a time-honored cinematic tradition. At times serious, provocative and silly, this tradition is alive and well today all over the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ladies or Gentlemen: A Pictorial History of Male Cross-Dressing in the Movies?

A History of Cross-dressing in the Movies.  Sep 12, 2007
My interest in this book comes from my fifty years in the theatre and television industry in Australia. Firstly as a dancer/singer in musicals, and then for thirty years as a costumier. I occasionally had to make costumes for actors to be dressed as females. It was fascinating to see how Hollywood & European studios designed and made the costumes for some of the great actors of our times. I found the book fascinating as many of the photos I had never seen. I just wish this book had come along years ago, as it would have been a great reference book for me - and the staff that worked in my business. Robert J. Murphy
The Most Amazing Resource and Guide  Dec 8, 2005
I just got this book the other day, and it is really amazing. Its a big and glossy book filled with great images of Male Crossdressing in the cinema from the most familer to the most obscure. If a chap put a frock on, on celuloid, this book has it covered. Each of the images have film synopsis to go with them. It is really a great book just for the pictures, but is made even better by the movie guide that goes along with them. It has the images divided in to several differnt chapters, and at the beginigng there is a great intro by John Lithgow and the author of the book. All and all it is an absolutle pleasure to have this book in my collection.

Insightful and fun, perfect for anyone, best for that special kind of girl who likes to see the boys in heels and eyeliner.
