The top butch/trans buddy movie of all time!
“The humanity of the characters shines!” – The New York Times
This innovative Sundance hit spins a tremendously entertaining adventure story about two butch/trans buddies on the streets of San Francisco in search of love and money. Starring LA performer/artist Harriet “Harry” Dodge (Cecil B. Demented, The Joy of Life) and former Tribe 8 punk rocker Silas Howard, By Hook or By Crook remains one of the most popular queer cult movies of all time.
Shy (Howard) is a small-town loner who dumps a diner job and thumbs to San Francisco to pursue a life of petty crime. Along the way, Shy stumbles into the off-kilter Valentine (Dodge). An unexpected and magical friendship sparks, as they steal and grift their way towards understanding themselves and the crazy world around them.
Co-starring performance artiste’ Stanya Kahn and super sexy San Francisco dyke poet Carina Gia.
This Deluxe Edition also includes a bonus extra cast interview!
