As a child, Alfie loved to dress up in his sisters' clothes as his favourite film star, Maria Montez, star of the 'easterns' about harems and Ali Baba. It wasn't that he was a sissy, he thought that Maria was just so beautiful. The prize at the church frolic was for the best boy dressed up as a girl, or girl dressed up as a boy.
Guess what happened in Alf's case. The judge said to him: "You're not in this section, love. You should be in the girls section!"
