The most famous example of homoerotic subtext is the playing of Ben Hur. Gore Vidal told Stephen Boyd that Masala and Ben Hur had been lovers as youths. This would give heft to the jealous and passionate feud between them. But they deliberately did NOT include Charlton Heston in these plans. Subtext can give the actor something active to play.
