An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh; measures 27" x 41" [69 x 104 cm]) (Learn More)

Glen or Glenda (also released as "I Led 2 Lives"), the 1953 Edward D. Wood Jr. transvestite sexploitation melodrama ("Based on the lives of Christine Jorgensen"; originally supposed to be about a man who has a sex-change operation, Ed Wood twisted it into a semi-biography of himself, thus changing the story into one about a transvestite, and not a sex change, and to add insult to injury, when the movie was released as "I Led 2 Lives", they still used the tagline "Based on the Lives of Christine Jorgensen", even though it in no way was!) starring Edward D. Wood Jr. (as Daniel Davis), Bela Lugosi, Dolores Fuller, Lyle Talbot, and Timothy Farrell. Note that Timothy Farrell is completely forgotten today, but he had a fascinating life. He worked for 26 years for the Los Angeles County Marshal's Office, and was a movie actor at the same time! He mostly worked on low budget movies, including several for Ed Wood, although he did play a bailiff in the 1954 "A Star is Born", which was the ultimate typecasting, because he himself had been a bailiff, but he eventually rose to be the County Marshal. But in 1975, he was convicted of a felony (using deputies for political activities), and he was fired. He lived for another 14 years before dying of a heart attack. His life should be made into a movie, no doubt with Johnny Depp in the starring role!
