Performance of the Day

Film: "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"
Character: Dr. Frank-N-Furter
Year: 1975

With all the recent hype of "Glee" and their tribute episode of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", I found time to catch the original for the first time in years. I remembered thinking British-born Tim Curry was great, but I didn't recall how flawless his performance was. Curry created a gem of a role in Dr. Frank-N-Furter, from his masterful makeup (that would make RuPaul jealous) to his scandalous lingerie . He's larger than life in the role that made him a cult legend. It's safe to say that Tim Curry IS Dr. Frank-N-Furter and no one will ever be able to fill his platform shoes.
