Quentin Crisp  played by John Hurt (right) in 'The Naked Civil Servant'. I laughed so much at this. A wonderful and very touching movie, even better that it's a true story.

Quentin Crisp, 1908 - 1999.  90; actor, illustrator, writer, artist's model. Grew up with effeminate tendencies, which he flaunted by parading the streets in make-up and painted nails, working as a rent-boy, and later a model. The interviews he gave about his unusual life attracted increasing public curiosity, and he was soon sought-after for his highly individual views on social manners and the cultivating of style.
