Hey....white women were in season.

     I recently purchased

     a set showcasing the notorious works of one of the cinema's oddest characters. Among the films in the Box is GLEN OR GLENDA, which I'd heard of and about for decades, but had not seen as yet. Fully expecting more amusing ineptitude a'la BRIDE OF THE MONSTER, I put the disk in, and hit PLAY.

     I was pleasantly suprised.
Yes, the production values, acting, etc. were  at the same DollarGeneral level as the rest of the Box's films, but there was something different here; this movie was actually ABOUT something.

     This was a story of a man seeking comprehension in his own life, and understanding from others, and despite how cheaply the picture was made, this comes across, even overshadowing whatever it was Bela Lugosi and the others in his sequences were supposed to be doing.

     My personal views on transvestism (and yours, for that matter) are irrelevant-this movie could've been about race, wealth, beauty, addiction, faith, or any of the things we choose to divide over in this life, whose lash we all have felt at times....perhaps now.

     Ed Wood wasn't just making a cry for help, but also a cry TO help....we all wear our angora, to the jeers of our peers.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
