I couldn't agree with James more. Same thing happened with me.
Those searches made me think and I was glad to offer some contribution.
Which brings me to the next search.
I am working on staged race & gender impersonations in American
cinema and I am looking for titles to expand my collection of titles. Any
suggestions? Here's what I need: films (or scenes from) that portray an
onstage performance where the character(s) engage in a gender & race
impersonation (both) before a diegetic audience. Example: *Paris Is Burning.*
