Connie B. de Mille (aka Ray Harrison)


Ray Harrison was an American filmmaker who signed some of his earlier films as Connie B. de Mille. He was a part of the 1960s underground film collective Gay Girls Riding Club, a group of gay men – some of them members of the industry -, who spoofed Hollywood movies in a series of elaborate amateur films. Rarely seen today, these films, made at a time when gay lives were universally portrayed as tragic in film, remain a unique document of a pre-Stonewall affirmative gay identity.
