The New York Daily News’ Rush & Molloy report that the forthcoming Hollywood issue of Vanity Fair contains a revealing interview with Jack Warner’s recently deceased aide-de-camp Richard Gully, in which Gully talks about the sexual proclivities of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Spencer Tracy, according to Gully, was a bisexual who was “never sober. I don’t think he functioned as a man.” Gully also says that Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, his longtime companion, “had chemistry only on-screen.” “Homosexuality for many stars was an opportunistic thing, a passing phase to get their careers off the launching pad,” Gully adds, claiming that among those who dabbled in bisexuality were Errol Flynn and Marlene Dietrich. (He goes on to dismiss the latter as “not much of a lesbian.”)
