ED WOOD (1994) Director Tim Burton’s outrageous labor-of-love tribute to one of the world’s worst horror movie makers, the great Edward D. Wood, Jr. Johnny Depp stars as the hopelessly optimistic, cross-dressing, Orson Welles wanna-be with more desire than talent, who will do anything – anything – to get his movies made; including breaking into a prop department to steal a giant mechanical octopus and recycling footage of a dead Bela Lugosi (and hiring a not-much-of-a-look-alike) to finish his most famous bomb, Plan 9 From Outer Space (HERE). Speaking of Lugosi, Ed Wood‘s highlights come in the array of characters (and character actors) that surround Wood, including Oscar winner Martin Landau as the aged, fowl-mouthed, dope-shooting star of Dracula, a flaming Bill Murray and Jeffrey Jones as showbiz psychic hack, Criswell (get his essential LP, HERE). It is the relationship between Wood and Lugosi, however fictionalized, that is at this movie’s heart, though… and the portrayal is quite touching. Fans of the genre will eat this flick up, while newcomers to Wood’s world may have a hard time believing that (some of) this actually took place. To quote Depp as Wood; “It’s perfect!” There are a hundred great lines in Ed Wood, but two of Lugosi’s many obscenity-laced outbursts are standouts… Dialog Alert #1: “Alright… let’s shoot this fucker!” Dialog Alert #2: “Karloff?… Sidekick?… FUCK YOU! Karloff does not deserve to smell my shit! That limey cocksucker can rot in hell for all I care!” TRIVIA: Delores Fuller, played by Sarah Jessica Parker (“Do I really have a face like a horse?”), would eventually move beyond being Ed Wood’s girlfriend/co-star to co-write nearly a dozen songs for Elvis Presley’s movies.
