RAQUEL WELCH JOHN HUSTON
One of the most notorious films ever made, Myra Breckinridge caused an outcry on its release, prompting one reviewer to call it a pornographic remake of Charleys Aunt. Since then this over-the-top comedy of excess has built a huge cult following.
Based on the novel by Gore Vidal, the story follows Myron, who has a sex change, becomes Myra and travels to Hollywood to claim an inheritance, though her real mission is "the destruction of the American male in all its particulars."
Raquel Welch gives it her all in the lead role supported by John Huston as aging cowboy Buck Loner and Mae West as man devouring talent agent, Leticia Van Allen.
