The Killing of Sister George (1969) 2hr 18mins
The Killing of Sister George is a 1968 film directed by Robert Aldrich based on the 1964 play by Frank Marcus. In the film, an aging lesbian television actress, June "George" Buckridge (Beryl Reid, reprising her role from the stage play), simultaneously faces the loss of her popular television role and the breakdown of her long-term relationship with a younger woman (Susannah York). Although Marcus' play was a black comedy the film version was marketed as a "shocking drama"; it added explicit lesbian content that was not in the original play, and was presented as a serious treatment of lesbianism.
