"Wishman appears in few of the official histories of women in film, but she was a genuine pioneer and, in her way, a visionary."
Description by OLDIES.com:
From Doris "The Queen of Exploitation" Wishman comes Let Me Die a Woman, one of the most jaw-dropping and unclassifiable films ever to ooze forth from the Seventies grindhouse era. A stunning sexpose on the medical condition known as gender dysphoria, this docu-style sleaze-fest includes unabridged interviews with post-ops, bull dykes and drag queens, probing anatomical examinations, and real medical stock footage from an actual sex change operation! It's enough to make you want to put on an iron jock strap! This first-ever DVD release of Wishman's trannie tour de force is re-mastered from the original 35mm negative and restored to its full-color, uncut splendor (including the infamous "chisel" sequence deleted from US theatrical prints).
This hilarious and horrifying documentary on transsexuals includes actual surgical footage of the operations and close-up looks at the results, inside and out. Not for the faint of heart.
