I watched an episode of “The Golden Girls” & “The Artist” last night.
It so happens that the “World Famous” Fictional Hungarian Artist, Laszlo Gregorian (Tony Jay), takes a visit to ‘The Golden girls’ at their home. He enjoys talking to them & is complimented for his lecture on modern sculpturing.
‘The Golden Girls’ in talks, take his request to pose nude for his creativity, where they suddenly find themselves vying for his attention, while Sophia (Estelle Getty) takes up a practical joke.
The experience: It certainly is a sexual one for the girls!
Spellbound by Laszlo’s worldliness & the sophistication (he’s from Europe). His adoration of their physiques appeals to their vanity, which makes them feel beautiful & desired. It’s the discovery of posing in secret that brings on a competition for romance & the sculpture. However, that’s not the case with Laszlo ‘The Artist’.
“Women can be so silly. They think because you are an artist, you must also be a great lover,” says (The Artist), Laszlo Gregorian.
It is sad to see that ‘The Artist’ is involved in himself & his creativity. He cannot return back to ‘The Golden Girls’ their affections. Thus, the end leads him to become an artist/ heartbreaker ready to reveal the results of his work & much more.
The Sculpture of “The Perfect Woman” by Laszlo Gregorian.
Dorothy Zbornak (Bea Arthur), Blanche Devereaux (Rue McClanahan) & Rose Nylund (Betty White). He saw character & strength, sensuality, & softness in these 3 ladies & created “The Perfect Lady”.
Though the “The Golden Girls” & “Laszlo & Gay” did bring a sudden shock. It was the most important detail he failed to clear for them until his sculpture was done.
I am now sure, not all artists are great lovers. Some are great talkers. The only thing is to endure the mistreatment we got coming. Especially when we mistake what we want for what we think we require in life.
I applaud the producers & writers for featuring a gay character – especially during that time. It showed being gay was stigmatized. But it doesn’t mean that the depictions were flawless.
