R.I.P: Gore Vidal

OK, I know Gore Vidal was a great author and playwright, but what I will always remember him for is that he inspired one of the most awesome train wrecks of a movie based on his novel "Myra Breckinridge" I want to read the actual book one day, but until that time comes...

We have one of the best bad movies ever made, which brought many delights outside of the actual cinematic work itself, a very public cat fight between the ever gorgeous Raquel Welch and the late great Mae West... film critic Rex Reed's acting debut, not to mention the film debut of a young beautiful woman named Farrah Fawcett, may she too rest in peace.

Gore Vidal, was a literary and political trouble maker, something he was quite proud of...may his legacy live on.
