will see that they had several things in common . . . But I won't
spoil your journey of discovery by revealing what they are.
Jeff, in the late 1940's, Carr was invited to a royal audience to
thank him for his service to England throug his BBC work, but one of
his "Producers" (ie, Directors) was not invited because it was
well-known that he was gay. Carr therefore refused to attend as well.
Clarice Carr told me that John could not understand why people were
sometimes judged on their sexual orientation.
- Speaking of attitudes toward gays, the other Carr--Glyn Carr--also defended
the gay lifestyle in one of his books, pointing out that at least "2 percent
of the population" was gay. When I mentioned that line and that figure to
Steven Saylor, Steven remarked that there were many people, gays included, who
thought the two percent figure was more accurate than 10 percent. But the point
of this was that in his own naive way Glyn Carr also was pro-gay.
