New Film ”100 Years Of Men In Love”

David Millbern, Emmy winning actor-producer talks about his fabulous must-see documentary “100 Years Of Men In Love: The Accidental Collection” with Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™. The film focuses on Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell’s extensive collection of vintage photographs of men in love from 1859 to 1959. They accumulated their vintage photos over the years from flea markets, family archives and estate sales across the country. The film captures a time period when male partnerships were illegal so the poses were often subtle but still a bold statement of their bonds. It’s also a history of photography from professional portraits created on tintypes to amateur snapshots taken by these brave gay couples who wanted to capture their relationships in this new medium regardless of the possible consequences. Millbern was attracted to this subject matter after discovering an old tintype of his great uncles that he has now framed and proudly displays in his home. The project was a huge undertaking for David chronicling Nini and Treadwell’s collection of over 3700 photos into an hour long moving documentary that reflects our LGBTQ community’s history of loving relationships spanning over 10 decades. It’s crucial for all generations from all races and sexualities to see this fascinating film to further understand that our LGBTQ community has always existed and that love is universal. Set to music with narration by Millbern and interviews with the curators of the collection Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell, “100 Years Of Men In Love” was produced by William Clift, Paul Colichman and Millbern. We talked to David about his inspiration for creating this film and his spin on our LGBTQ issues. 

David Millbern first emerged as a child actor and by the age of 17 he had already studied and worked with famed acting guru Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio in NYC.
