Let Me Die a Woman (1974)
Exploitation queen Doris Wishman directs this documentary-style grindhouse epic that explores the curious medical phenomenon known as "gender dysphoria" and affords steely-nerved viewers the opportunity to witness firsthand a medically performed gender transformation from man to woman.

Audience Reviews for Let Me Die a Woman
Quasi documentary directed by "the female Ed Wood" Doris Wishman dealing with Transexualism. Surprisingly sympathetic to their subjects for what is basically an exploitative Mondo film at heart. Features interviews with various transexuals and cross dressers, a real life sex change surgery (difficult to watch. especially if your a dude), the infamous chisel scene (a breasted dude attempts to remove his own penis using a chisel and a hammer with predictbly disastrous results), and a brief early performance from Harry Reems of Deep Throat fame, amongst other Porn chic films of the 70's. Not really sure if I would recommend this to anyone. The material covered isn't really of much interest to me, but is worth seeing for people interested in Mondo as a style, which I am. Definently features some scenes that are not easily forgotten though.More
