Who Did it Best?

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Who Did it Best?

I  was watching the Golden Globes last night when… inspiration struck!

Men in Drag.   Who Did it Best?

In this corner, the challengers:

Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari from the TV series Bosom Buddies.   Hanks and Scolari, you might remember, play two single guys who disguise themselves as women so they can obtain affordable housing.  Bosom Buddies ran from 1980 to 1982 on ABC and in reruns in the summer of 1984 on NBC.

And in the opposite corner, the champions:

Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in from the 1959 motion picture classic, Some Like it Hot. Curtis and Lemmon wore Spanx before wearing Spanx was cool.  Well, technically speaking, Spanx weren’t around in 1959, but you know what I mean.  They were doing drag when RuPaul was but a twinkle in his momma’s eye.

And, because it’s hard for me to resist anything associated with the earliest days of MTV, how about Milton Burle playing the lady of the house in Ratt’s video for the song Round and Round?

Who do you think did drag best?

  1. They all were very good. Bosom Buddies is an old fave. And Dustin Hoffman should at least get a mention for Tootsie.

    But…I’d have to go with Col Klinger from M.A.S.H. So glad he never got that Section 8 discharge.

  2. I’d vote for Bosom Buddies because they had to do it all the time and that takes work, but I want to give props to you for mentioning a Ratt video. I always can count on you for hilarious and completely random 80s trivia.
