An Englishman In New York
ABC  |  March 28, 2010

The 1975 television series The Naked Civil Servant transformed the life of its creator - fifty-something part-time life model and novelist Quentin Crisp. The story about his life as a homosexual growing up in wartime Britain made Quentin a household name. However, having finally gained the celebrity he craved, he is shunned. So he accepts an invitation to speak in New York. With his flamboyant style, rapier sharp wit, and honest, but seemingly perverse world view he's an instant hit, and New York proves to be Quentin's natural home.
