William "Billy" Haines was a popular silent screen MGM movie star who was fired by Louis B Mayer because he was gay and refused to give up his lifelong partner, Jimmie Shields, and marry the silent screen vamp Pola Negri.

As punishment, his films were removed from release and sealed in the MGM vaults never to be seen again, and his studio photographs destroyed.

It was an attempt to erase him completely from movie history.

But Billy and Jimmy's turbulent, passionate love affair was to survive and lasted over 50 years...

This is their story.
