Homosexuals As The Villain

In this analysis I will decode the stereotypes and relationships found in Johnny Guitar (1954) and other films in which the main antagonist could be perceived as homosexual, and the motivations of said antagonist stem from this single factor. I will also explore the common traits and stereotypes reinforced by these characters, and the rippling effects they have had on modern day media, including film and television. This analysis will also look at films such as Desert Hearts (1985), The Women (1939), and other films not specifically named as of yet. The effects of these films, and their presumably homosexual antagonists, will be explored and applied to modern film, as well as the present day queer community.
