"In her career as a screenwriter, depictions of alternative lifestyles became her trademark, and June Mathis was proud of this as well. She wrote a shot of two lesbians into a cafe scene for The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and in a banquet scene at the French château, ‘I had the German officers coming down the stairs with women’s clothing on.
