PostSubject: Quentin Crisp Quentin Crisp, celebrated British raconteur and humorist,   Fri May 23, 2008 8:02 am

Quentin Crisp Quentin Crisp, celebrated British raconteur and humorist, has been likened to a Twentieth Century version of Mark Twain. A flamboyant performer, wit, and stylist with numerous film and literary credits, Mr. Crisp was a defining influence on many key people in the theater arts and developed a large and varied fan base.

Among these people are world-renowned artists such as Sting, Bette Midler, Sara Miles, John Hurt and others. In 1999, Mr. Crisp passed away at the age of 90, leaving behind an enormous and still loyal fan base.

In 2005, BOVA FILMS acquired the only full length, professionally filmed Quentin Crisp One-Man Show. This footage, taken by the acclaimed cinematographer, Maryse Alberti, has never been seen by the general public.

With planned narration and commentary by John Hurt and others, BOVA FILMS is currently in production of a major documentary feature that incorporates rare and priceless footage and reveals the wry wit, controversial observations and, often, infuriating commentary of which has made Crisp a beloved figure.
