Myra Breckinridge

Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, circa 1970. Draft script for the 1970 film. Based on the 1968 novel by Gore Vidal.

One of the key twentieth century films about Hollywood, and a prescient one in terms of transgender interests, which at the time received almost no attention from major studios. Myra Breckinridge undergoes gender confirmation surgery and, upon completion, promptly moves to Hollywood to enroll in her uncle Buck's acting academy, where she attempts to claim her half of her uncle's inheritance.
