Femulating Film Alert!

Friday, April 26, 3:30 PM EDT on TCM: Peach O'Reno also known as Peach-O-Reno, a 1931 pre-code film in which actor Bert Wheeler femulates rather convincingly.


  1. Check out the femme Bert Wheeler in a Peach O'Reno dance routine. The Wheeler and Woolsey comedy duo featured Bert Wheeler in drag very often.

  2. It's times like this that I wish I could afford upgraded cable! (or even BASIC cable!!) This film has been on my "want to see" list for years.

    1. I assumed that Wheeler's femulation would be short-lived and only involve a scene or two, but to my surprise the femulation lasted about a half-hour. And except for some comedic antics, the femulation was very convincing when he played it straight.
