Glen or Glenda, the legendary debut film from director Ed Wood, Jr. is a hilariously confusing but gentle tale of a young “transvestite” (played by Ed himself) who must come to grips with his identity as an angora-loving cross-dresser while also struggling to find acceptance from his fiancé and society at large. Narrated by horror movie icon Bela Lugosi, and featuring heaps of unrelated stock footage, strange dream sequences and gloriously campy dialogue, Glen or Glenda, despite its many failings as a film, helped revolutionize cinema by presenting a very progressive tale championing tolerance and kindness toward gender-nonconforming people … in 1953! “Pull the string! Pull the string!”
To win a ticket all you need to is answer the following question: Which 1959 science fiction film did Ed Wood famously direct which is considered by many to be the worst film of all time? Just put the answer and your email address in the box below to be in with a chance to win a ticket!
