  • Quentin Crisps's autobiography THE NAKED CIVIL SERVANT was adapted for the screen by the BBC in 1975, and caused a storm of controversy on its initial release. The film follows Crisps's problematic existence in England during the days before homosexuality was legalized, and includes many of the homophobic slurs and random acts of violence that the flamboyant star had to endure. Crisp never took the easy way out and remained outspoken about his sexuality, which turned him into a figurehead for the gay rights movement. THE NAKED CIVIL SERVANT stars John Hurt as Quentin Crisp, and is a deeply moving and thought-provoking piece that continues to be lauded as one of British television's finest moments.
