When it comes to film, the down and out, broke heroines get a lot of audience support. The enterprising answer to financial woe with a creative twist makes Connie and Carla a worth see film. Two girls in drag may not get everyone's attention, but it makes for a great story. Connie and Carla are two starving actresses who can't seem to get a gig. In the land of the stars, they appear to be fizzling. They re-create themselves as "drag queens", and land a job at a highly frequented gay bar in town. They incur a series of near "outings", and the heroines have boyfriends. Working in a gay bar and being in love with a straight guys brings a major conflict all of its own. The real surprise of the film is the quality of the drag performers themselves. The heroines are surrounded by good quality performers and a really receptive audience who allow them to hone their singing and performance skills. A gay Julliard for certain. Of course, the heroines' true identity is discovered, but not in a way that casts them into the darkness. The gay bar expands, and they become the artists they really want to be. Not a bad ending.
