Glen or Glenda is a 1953 American drama film written, directed by and starring Ed Wood (credited in his starring role as \"Daniel Davis\"), and featuring Bela Lugosi and Wood\'s then-girlfriend Dolores Fuller. It was produced by George Weiss who also made the exploitation film Test Tube Babies that same year.
The film is a docudrama about cross-dressing and transsexuality, and is semi-autobiographical in nature. Wood himself was a cross-dresser, and the film is a plea for tolerance. It is widely considered one of the worst films ever. However, it has become a cult film due to its low-budget production values and idiosyncratic style.
