Armed with a bulging contacts book and a luxury pad with its own disco overlooking Beverly Hills, bombastic impresario Allan Carr threw the Hollywood parties that defined the '70s.Available from video streaming services from June 5, "The Fabulous Allan Carr" doubles as a history of the gay experience in Hollywood, both in the carefree pre-AIDS '70s and in the dark days that lay ahead.Carr's kitschy parties often turned into all-gay affairs after the stars went home, where entertainment industry bigwigs would mingle with the young, muscular, flaxen-haired men he called his "twinkies". Star-makerBorn Allan Solomon to a Jewish family in Chicago, Carr worked at Playboy before reinventing himself as a party planner, arranging a black-tie evening for Truman Capote in an abandoned Los Angeles jail.In 1983 Carr came back fighting with a hugely successful musical version of the Broadway play "La Cage aux Folles" that ran for five years, picking up six Tony Awards.
