A lot of folks are probably keenly aware of Georgie Weiss and Ed Wood’s aborted-to-altered attempt to bring George Jorgensen’s transformative tale to the big screen in Glen or Glenda. However, more folks should really be aware that there really was an officially sanctioned adaptation that came out in 1970, The Christine Jorgensen Story, produced by the equally schlock-minded Edward Small (Monkey on My Back, IT! The Terror from Beyond Space) and written by his usually partners in crime, Robert Kent and Ellis Joseph. At last check, this gonzoidal classic was streaming on Netflix for all to see.
