Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Weiss (born 9 April 1921) is an American film producer who specialized in independent 'road show' exploitation Z movies during the 1950s and sexploitation shockers in the '60s that openly defied the motion picture production code of the day. Weiss is best known as the producer who funded the exploitation film Glen or Glenda (1953) directed by Edward D. Wood Jr., originally conceived as a fictionalized story of the sexual reassignment surgery of Christine Jorgensen. When Jorgensen refused to collaborate on the film, Wood wrote a new autobiographical script about his own struggle with being a closet transvestite and added stock film footage about sexual reassignment surgery. Weiss appears in the film in an uncredited cameo as "man at transvestite's suicide."
