A very well done retrospective.


This is a film that paints, probably the most complimenting portrait of the man. Most of them, while somewhat jilted by him, had praise for him, and considered him to be a dear friend. Although, as well made as it was, and as good as the production values were, it's not quite as entertaining as the smaller budgeted 'Flying Saucers Over Hollywod: The Plan 9 Companion". I applaud the director for making this worthy documentary, and most importantly, for trying so hard when no one wanted to talk.

It was amazing in a Spinal Tap type way. You really see why these people worked with Ed Wood- because their *beep* crazy. And it isn't editing or the producer's slanted the view- you can honestly see how nuts they are.

but I mean, it really is endearing.

Plus, Vampira explaining that Orson Welles gave her the clap is priceless.

I love this documentary also. I have it on tape. Even though this wasn't said in the doc, someone described his 'cast of characters' as people that "Ringling Brothers would give their eyeteeth for."
