There was always a piano playing in the saloon. But it would stop abruptly when the bad guy came in the door.

All LGBTQ+ characters are the “good guys.”

If it’s truly accepted, and not simply politically protected and preferred, we need villains played by LGBTQ+ characters!

If you want to see gay villains watch the 60's Batman Show, (okay to be fair they weren't all effiminate.)

In old car chases, there were always hubcaps rolling away. Often, you'd see 2 or 3 flying off, but in later shots, they would all still be on the car.

There was a FX Limited Series, (Mini Series) The Assassination Of Gianni Versaci about and him And Andrew Cunanan. He would be considered a gay villain although that term is a little simplistic.

I didnt correctly remember his name....though a person like that may be better off forgotten. Not really someone the gay community probably wants associated with them.

Nearly every Lifetime Movie ends with someone waving a gun / knife around, and or someone tied to a chair.
I was actually asking on Facebook recently what the name of the "Lifetime movie trope where the killer is pointing a gun and monologueing, giving someone a chance to knock it away". Lol.
Do you know what it is called?

EDIT: I should add that after the gun is knocked away, them and the protagonist start wrestling and trying to get the gun, but someone else shoots them just in time

I'm not sure if their is an actual word for it. I just called it the "End Of Every Lifetime Movie". To be fair not all Lifetime Movies have this conclusion such as their docudramas and Christmas movies.

It might be part of a larger movie cliché known as the Over Talkative Villain. It's like when someone explains the details of their plot to take over the world before they try do away with the hero, (think James Bond or Batman.)

When a wealthy person died, there was always a scene where all the potential heirs would be gathered together and seated in a room for the reading of the will. There was usually a surprise that would cause someone in the room to gasp.
