Trash Cinema Treasure: The Woman Inside
How do you get a nice, juicy plug on this much-ballyhooed blog? That's easy! You loan me The Woman Inside, a bizarrely earnest yet at the same time deeply trashy 1981 drive-in-caliber film, with Gloria Manon as a Vietnam vet who goes through reassignment surgery—yes, it's a woman playing a man who's a woman—and screwball legend Joan Blondell as Hollis/Holly's blowsy aunt, who screeches stuff like, "You want to cut WHAT off?" That's what acclaimed Streisand impersonator Steven Brinberg did, and I'm so euphoric about it I'll gladly lend it around to anyone else who thanks me on THEIR blog. But first let me study it for some crotch-chopping tips.
