"I love the smell of angora in the morning!" (Not uttered in "Glen or Glenda" - pictured). This compilation of 'big men in tights' movies (among others) shows us the often funny, tragic, but never dull lives as led by transvestites, and transsexuals, in the movies. Some actors are often hilariously shown to be unsuited for the garter and makeup (Ed Wood in "Glen or Glenda"), while others make the uncanny transformation from man to woman to often stunning effect (Jaye Davidson in "The Crying Game"). Also included are those farcical films where men must disguise themselves as women inevitably leading to much frantic confusion and deception ("Some Like It Hot").
