Ed Wood’s Top 5 Movies on DVD

Glen Or Glenda? [DVD](1952) DVD
Writer/director Ed Wood pseudonymously starred in this transvestite/sex-change docudrama that was his most autobiographical film. Will Glen's fiancee let him wear her angora sweater? Hear scientist-narrator Bela Lugosi warn viewers to "bevare of the big green dragon that sits on your doorstep," see daffy dream sequences, and learn the inner turmoil of men who wear "pink satin undies." With Dolores Fuller, Lyle Talbot. AKA: "I Led Two Lives." 67 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.

Jail Bait [DVD](1954) DVD
A hard-as-nails gangster film, Ed Wood-style. A hood on the lam shoots his partner, then forces the guy's surgeon-father to change his face. The stars include Lyle Talbot, Dolores Fuller, Timothy Farrell and a young Steve Reeves; don't miss the "hilarious" blackface minstrel sequence! 75 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; theatrical trailer.

Bride Of The Monster [DVD](1956) DVD
Wood and Lugosi team up again in this tale of a mad scientist out to create a race of "atomic super-giants." See Tor Johnson as Lobo, Lugosi's mute lab assistant! See Bela wrestle with an obvious rubber octopus! See Tor wrestle with Bela's platform-heeled stand-in! "He tampered in God's domain!" With Tony McCoy, Loretta King. 70 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.

Plan 9 From Outer Space (1958)/The Ed Wood Story [DVD](1992) DVD
Recognized on six continents as ``the worst film ever made,'' this sci-fi travesty from Ed Wood features anti-nuclear aliens whose ships look like paper plates, Tor Johnson and Vampira as zombie slaves, Bela Lugosi in two minutes of stock footage (a stand-in with a cape took his place), and narration by famed psychic Criswell. "Can you prove it didn't happen?" Plus, take a behind-the-schlock with this retrospective that tells the story of the man whose complete cinematic incompetence turned him into a legend. Includes interviews with Johnny Depp, Martin Landau, Vampira, Bela Lugosi and Mrs. Wood herself, Dolores Fuller. 120 min. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English; theatrical trailers.

Night Of The Ghouls [DVD](1959) DVD
The long-lost "sequel" to "Bride of the Monster" stars Criswell, Vampira and the ever-popular Tor Johnson in a tale of fake mediums who find themselves up against the true "walking dead." Writer/director Wood calls them "Monsters to be pitied...monsters to be despised." Who are we to argue? 69 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
