Movie Classic: The Group


The Group (1966) was the first mainstream Hollywood movie to tackle lesbianism. Staring Candice Bergen and Larry Hagman, the movie was designated as "adult only" in many theaters and almost destroyed the careers of Bergen and Hagman. Considered tame by today's standards, the movie was based on a novel by Mary McCarthy. Remarkably, it still holds up nearly 50 years later.
