Product description

Product Description

Double-bill from cult director Ed Wood, widely acknowledged as the worst director in film history. 'Glen or Glenda' (1953) is Wood's exploitation tribute to his own habit of cross-dressing, where he takes the title role as a suicidal transvestite. 'Jail Bait' (1954) is Wood's attempt at the gangster genre, about a rich and successful young man who is drawn into the world of crime.

From Amazon.co.uk

Often mentioned as a contender for the title of Worst Movie Ever Made, Glen or Glenda? (a.k.a. I Changed My Sex, a.k.a. I Led Two Lives, a.k.a. He or She) remains Ed Wood's weirdest film--and, for the director of Plan 9 from Outer Space, that's saying something. Yet Glen or Glenda? goes way beyond camp, into some unique zone of demented personal expression, an essay/collage/autobiography that is no less fascinating just because it comes from a second-rate mind. Wood himself, under the pseudonym Daniel Davis, plays a transvestite struggling to reveal his tendencies to his wife (the toneless Dolores Fuller, Wood's missus in real life). Mixed in with this exploitation story is a tonne of irrelevant stock footage, as well as disconnected glimpses of Béla Lugosi bellowing at the audience; Lugosi's dialogue is a tapestry of non sequiturs and portentous warnings. The behind-the-scenes creation of Glen or Glenda? forms part of the action of Ed Wood, Tim Burton's affectionate tribute to the B-movie master. Wood himself was a transvestite, which accounts for the cracked sincerity of Glen or Glenda?; the passion for angora sweaters is real, not a fluffy plot device. Truly a flabbergasting 68 minutes in film history. --Robert Horton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
