Angels in America

An HBO miniseries, based on the Tony-award winning plays by Tony Kushner, about AIDS, religion, drugs, homosexuality, angels, and whether the redemption of man is possible. The story revolves around a group of people who, at first sight, have nothing to do with each other -- but are all connected by their ideology, experiences, and feelings.

    In Episode 5, a nurse in the hospital is telling Belize about a movie she saw on TV the night before. This movie was She (1935), where the main character - known as "She Who Must Be Obeyed" - was played by future California Congresswoman Helen Gahagan Douglas, in her only film role. Helen Gahagan Douglas would later make an unsuccessful bid for the Senate in a race against Richard Nixon in 1950. Nixon, as a Congressman and Senator, was a major figure in the anti-Communist Second Red Scare of 1947-1957 - as was Roy Cohn. Nixon was able to successfully defeat Gahagan Douglas, at least in part, by portraying her on the campaign trail as a Hollywood pinko.

    SPOILER: At the end of the film, when Prior talks about the Bethesda Fountain, he points across the Central Park Lake and mentions some trees that turn yellow in autumn. Those trees are part of a section of the park called "The Ramble," which is the setting for Louis' aborted sexual encounter with a stranger (also played by Justin Kirk) earlier in the film. The Ramble is also where Joe goes to watch other men before he knows Louis, and it is included in the list of popular 1970s and early '80s-era New York City-area locations for public gay sex that Louis recounts to Joe while they are walking on the beach.
