Raquel Welch And That Famous Strap-On! (Photo NSFW)

Raquel Welch has been having a wonderful Film Society of Lincoln Center tribute series consisting of highlights from her saucy and diverse career.

The other night, they showed The Three Musketeers -- the catfight between Raquel and Faye Dunaway is absolutely priceless -- and before the film, I got to catch up with our star, who always gives me a rise and a half.

"I heard that last night, at the Myra Breckenridge showing, you talked about dildos," I moaned. "And I missed it!"

"I did not say that word," she replied, twinkling.

"Sex devices?"

"I didn't say that, either!" she balked.

Well, anyway, what was the story about whatever you want to call it -- when Myra (Raquel) anally rapes Rusty?

"I went to the studio," she related, "and said, 'I'm not strapping on anything!'"

My own favorite catchphrase!

Anyway, in the scene, it's reportedly a gun belt with a six-shooter that Raquel dons for the act.

And already we'd established a tone for the evening.

During the onstage Q&A, host Dick Cavett claimed that Raquel mentions fellatio in her latest book.

"I do not!" she protested.

Replied Cavett: "You wrote about how parents were shocked ..."

Filled in Raquel: "... to find that their 13-year-olds are giving blowjobs. I didn't call it fellatio," she added, grinning.

Oh, semantics, semantics.

You say dildos, I say fellatio ...

In any case, I adore Raquel and love her even more after hearing her say that her inspiration for her Three Musketeers performance was Stan Laurel!

She always surprises.

Dr. MR. MUSTO, shame, shame, shame! Now we know you name. Come on Mary. Your that forgetful of who our enemies were and are? Raquel Welch was right behind the infamous Orange Queen Bitch, Anita  Bryant. Yes that's right the anti-gay hate monger Anita The Tyrant Bryant! Raquel Welch said on many occasions horrendous, shockingly horredus statement against the gay people and the gay community, in the Anita Bryant 1977 period. You can check your facts. Why would you ad and abet a KKKristian. Your actions are shamful, disgaceful, and enen more scandalous. Ading and abeting and ANTI-GAY, homophobic person.  I was there. I fought against this kind of persons in the 1970s. So that we Gay People have what we have today. Great Sex Symbol my dead grandmother's ass! Come on Michael. Are you that forgetful or just star-struck or is it just a great need for subject matter? I hope it was a sorrowful over sight. Please clarify your self on this shamful recognition on such a homophic person! DAM GIRLFRIEND. Do your gay history home work. I WAS THERE, AND I HELPED DOWN IN FLORIDA FIGHT AGAINST Anita Bryant, and Raquel Welch in Las Vegas.  We had to fight dam hard against this kind of anti-gay dried white dog crap! DAM IT. I love you Michael. But DO NOT AD AND ABET OUR ENEMIES! In any way shape or form. Why are WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SO DAM FORGETFUL OF WHAT HAS TAKEN PLACE, IN OUR RECENT GAY HISORY?

I liked the books (MYRA BRECKINRIDGE and its sequel, MYRON) tremendously.  They were so funny.  Though I've always enjoyed Gore Vidal's novels, I remember those two with particular fondness.

Raquel Welch is one of the last great Sex Symbols.

I remember watching the movie and thinking about Mae West in her heyday..now she had to face this young monster racquel at Mae's age of 75.. it took a lot of courage for Mae to do this even more to make her final film at 85 years old..lets see if Miss Racquel Welch holds up as well as Mae.

Myra Breckenridge is a scream of a camp movie.  Besides Raquel it also has Mae West (who had a conflict with Raquel) and young Farah Fawcett and even John Houston!  Funny, funny movie.  I always found Rex Reed very sexy.

Yeah, but just the sight of Raquel, Tom Selleck, Mae West, rex Reed, Farrah Fawcett and all those old movie clips makes it an amazing curio. But Gore Vidal gets sick when he even hears about the movie.

Myra Breckenridge the novel is a guilty pleasure and FUNNY!! but the film is absolutely unwatchable. There was a showing of MB at the Anthology Film Archives about 10 years ago and I had to leave before it ended, it's not even a B movie more like a f minus!

I thought the movie was fantastic!  But the book is excellent and I also liked Myron, written by Gore after Myra Breckenridge.
