30 Films about... Drag & Cross-dressing (30 movies items)

"A gay club owner and his drag queen partner masquerade as a typical husband and wife when their son's fiance's conservative family comes to visit. This French farce spawned two sequels, La Cage aux Folles II (1980) & La Cage aux Folles III - 'Elles' se Marient (1985). Also inspiring a Tony-award winning Broadway musical of the same name, and an American remake, The Birdcage (1996) which starred Robin Williams & Nathan Lane."
