Directed by Michael Sarne
United States, 1970


Gore Vidal’s best-selling satiric novel gets an inarguably unique screen treatment in this off-center psycho-sexual farce.

Critics reviews

This is not to say the film deserves to be reconsidered as some sort of misunderstood masterpiece (the film itself gives so little, what should it deserve in return at all?), especially on an aesthetic level, but that its status as merely an object of camp derision is perhaps unfair. Even a cursory peek at Myra Breckinridge reveals pleasures of such a gratifyingly perverse variety that one couldn’t outright dismiss it.
