Born in Metković, Gluščević first began acting in theatres in nearby Dubrovnik. His first notable works were documentary and live-action shorts made in the 1950s and 1960s, some of which won awards at film festivals in Venice, Cannes, Oberhausen and Belgrade.
In the mid-1960s Gluščević turned to making feature films, and made three comedies which depict life in rural Dalmatia: Lito vilovito (1964), Čovik od svita (1965) and Goli čovik (1968). After that he directed two children's films (Vuk samotnjak in 1972 and Kapetan Mikula Mali in 1974). Mikula Mali was later expanded into a television series aired in 1976. Gluščević also authored the popular Yugoslav children's TV series Jelenko in 1980 produced by the Radiotelevision Zagreb.
