Good Morning, World

.
All I know about this little flash of Mel Gibson kissing another dude is it's from Peter Weir's 1981 film Gallopoli - it looks like it's behind-the-scenes footage from the set, but I have never seen Gallopoli (I know, I have been saving it for a rainy day since Weir's so unprolific) so I don't know that for 100% sure. But Gallopoli sure seems like it was a gay ol' time for Mel.

Anyway sorry to start off your Monday by making you mourn what we lost Mel-Gibson-wise between hot gay 1981 and racist crazy 2017 - what once was so wonderful has turned to ashes in our mouths. (But then this is true for more than just Mel Gibson.) But it's Peter Weir's 73rd birthday today and we wanted to wish him a happy. Please make another movie, Peter!

I know Mel is a total dick, but dear God he was hot back in the day. The least we can do is objectify him knowing how grumpy it would make him to find out we're gays.

Gallipoli is beautifully made and chock-a-block with gorgeous young men, including in all honesty the young Mel-pretty on the outside at least, and tells a compelling story but ultimately is so sad. Worthwhile though.

Mel's co-star in Gallipoli is out gay actor Mark Lee whose had a considerable less stellar career, even by the standards of Australian actors with no international career.

Do you mean Peter Weir's film Gallipoli (1981)?

I did, thanks for that Michael. My eyes crossed when scanning his IMDb page
