Burt Lancaster In Drag!

When I ran my stunning montage of male actors in drag yesterday, I asked if anyone had a shot of Burt Lancaster in 1952's The Crimson Pirate, a novelty image that Christian Freedom had alerted me to.

Well, Gregory Moore came through.

Burt is much prettier here than he was in The Birdman of Alcatraz.

Crimson is really his color.

And courtesy of Gregory, here's Burt and co-star Nick Cravat out of drag in the same film.

Nice tits!

and in the movie he is actually dressed in drag to save his girlfriend from marrying another man!

My uncle went to high school with Burt Lancaster. His nickname was "Butch". I kid not.

Nick Cravat was Lancaster's partner when they were acrobats...he appeared in a number of films...

Still looks a little macho, but yes, rather lovely. Who's the other lovely?

Um, a photo of Burt Lancaster in drag--something which is not available anywhere online, except in a LDM reader's files--would be a novelty image.

Someone named Nick Cravat.  Not sure if this will transmit, but I'll try to embed a "before" photo of them:

Nick Cravat was Burt Lancasters best friend. We Burt went to hollywood he took him with him but Nick couldn't act so he made him mute.
