    According to a female friend of mine now in her mid 70s who had several clandestine assignations with Farley, he had a very big pee pee.

    According to the Beebs obit he was gay and in a long term relationship that he chronicled in a book co-written with his partner and titled Consider Me Out.

    Actually, leapyear, it was Include Me Out.

    Amazon's write-up suggests that he was actually bi, fwiw:

    "He is eloquent about his bisexuality and tells of affairs with Patricia Neal, Arthur Laurents, Shelley Winters, Leonard Bernstein and Ava Gardner and his involvement with Barbara Stanwyck, Joan Crawford, and Tyrone Power."

    Probably not one of the best known actors, but he was known for starring in two Hitchcock films(Strangers On A Train, Rope)....I know he did not have star power of Elizabeth Taylor or Rock Hudson, but I thought he should be mentioned for his works on these two classic films as well.

    No worries.
    Frankly, it's rare for Hhuck to beat a Stretch-class hotshot.

    Saw him in "Deathtrap" on Broadway, and he was wonderful in it. RIP Farley.

    RIP FG. Im reading his book now. I first saw him in Rope and was like "Gosh this man is HOT." In his book he talks about his bisexuality and it is helping me come to terms with my sexuality. Sad to hear he passed away. He will be missed.
