Dinah East (1970)

  • Moderator
    I ran across a TS/TV film I'd never heard of on DVD: "Dinah East."
    The DVD tagline is: "A Superstar Actress is really a man... Hollywood's Strangest Story!" The idea is supposedly to tell the story of Mae West (East-Wast, very subtle....) who was allegedly a drag queen. Not a very good film and poor transfer (from video tape, I think) from DVD issuer Substance. Contains full frontal nudity.
    I put together a filmography on every film I buy or rent:
