I didn’t know about Ed Wood until I watched the Johnny Depp portrayal in around 1998. I fell in love with that film and at the same time it’s subject.
Plan 9 is often voted the worst film ever made, well that's good enough for me. Watch the biopic and dig deep for your own Ed Wood emotion.
And don’t forget- “Pull the strings, pull the strings!” -paulie-
"Following the publication of Rudolph Grey's 1992 oral biography Nightmare of Ecstasy: The Life and Art of Edward D. Wood Jr., the public took a greater interest in Wood, leading up to director Tim Burton's biopic of Wood's life, Ed Wood (1994), a critically acclaimed film starring Johnny Depp as Wood that earned two Academy Awards."
"Edward Davis Wood, Jr. (October 10, 1924 – December 10, 1978) was an American filmmaker, actor, and author.
In the 1950s, Wood made a number of low-budget films in the science fiction, comedy, and horror genres, intercutting stock footage. In the 1960s and 1970s, he made sexploitation movies and wrote over 80 pulp crime, horror and sex novels. In 1975, he was awarded a Golden Turkey Award as Worst Director of All Time, renewing public interest in his work. Wood's career and camp approach has earned him and his films a cult following."
