The Sissy Duckling

Anthony Bell's wonderful 1999 animated video, created for HBO from a screenplay by Harvey Fierstein, recasts Hans Christian Andersen's “The Ugly Duckling” as the story of a classic sissy: he hates sports, loves theater, and prefers the girl ducklings to the bullying jock ducks. As in the original, the very qualities that make him an outcast later turn out to be hidden strengths. Simple but effective, the video features the voices of Sharon Stone, Melissa Etheridge, Dionne Warwick, and Fierstein as the title character. 39 min.
