Ed Wood’s penchant for angora sweaters (etc.) has been much publicized in recent years, helped by Tim Burton’s biopic “Ed Wood.”

In Wood’s own charmingly inane style, he presents us here with a semi-educational, semi-fictionalized film about cross-dressing and sex changes. “Why does this headline shock the world?” it asks, referring to a sensationalized headline about a sex change operation.

Bela Lugosi puts in a performance as a god-like figure, shouting “Pull the strings!” every once in a while, making the movie all the more foolish. I respect Wood’s attempt to clear up misconceptions about transvestism, but all this movie does is make you giggle.
