In his heart-felt cinematic debut, Edward D. Wood, Jr. himself stars under the pseudonym Daniel Davis as a young man with a dilemma: should he tell his lovely young fiancee (played by real-life girlfriend Dolores Fuller) about his burning desire to cross-dress? She has begun to notice articles of clothing missing from her closet; the suspense builds...what should he do? Bela Lugosi plays the omniscient narrator; note his conviction as he "pulls the strings." Amidst this unintentionally hilarious

This well-meaning disaster, rescued from the obscurity it surely craves, is without doubt a candidate for one of the worst films ever made.
It isn't quite a camp classic, although it's dreadful enough to have a certain comic appeal. ''Glen or Glenda'' is also a film of great conviction in its way, and that tends to interfere with the fun.
as insanely bad as this movie is, it retains perverse pleasures that serve it well as a cult icon
The passage of time has not transformed Glen or Glenda? into a good movie; it has, however, revealed it to be a braver film than anyone had ever imagined.
Funny to watch, but not as funny as you might remember.
Excellent movie to laugh at. Rent it and have a ball!
It baffles science and logic and rudimentary narrative skills, but it's fascinating.
An Ed Wood classic! Pull the string!
Terrible and inept, but, oh God, is it funny!
Just because Ed Wood's become a cultural icon, that doesn't make this movie any less hilariously inept.
There are bad movies. Then there are really bad movies. Then there are laughably bad movies. And somewhere under there, resides the lifework of Edward D. Wood, Jr.
