Every year when our logo begins to change it's a sure sign that Fall has arrived and spooky events are on their way for Halloween. October is also the birthday month for a very talented film creator, who in 1998 paid tribute to yet another famous Hollywood film creator from another generation.
We have openly gay writer/director Bill Condon to thank for bringing Gods and Monsters to the movies. The film tells the story of the last days of James Whale, the gay director of Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man and Showboat. Mr. Condon was nominated for Best Director and won the award for Best Screenplay Adaptation (from Christopher Bram’s book). He also wrote and directed Kinsey, and wrote/directed the film version of Dreamgirls. Condon was born October 22, 1955. Happy Birthday Bill!
