Nicholas Snow welcomes critically acclaimed Writer/Director Billy Clift (of Baby Jane? fame) to discuss not only his career, but his latest film, Hush Up Sweet Charlotte, an homage to the 1964 Hush…Hush Sweet Charlotte film starring the iconic actresses Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland. The film tells of an aging, reclusive Southern belle with a horrifying hidden family secret. It tracks her descent into madness (with the help of a lost relative) as she fights to save her family’s historic plantation.
In Clift’s film, the leads are parody performances by gender-illusionist superstars Matthew Martin and Varla Jean Merman. The feature role of housekeeper Velma, originally performed by Agnes Moorhead, is played by Mink Stole, made famous by cult film director, John Waters. Other cast members include accomplished comedian/actor Jason Stuart, star of stage and screen David Millbern, rising star Jesse Pepe, Raja Gemini of RuPaul’s Drag Race, plus San Francisco drag icons Katya Smirnoff Skyy, Ethel Merman, Honey Mahogony, Heklina and more.
