Ed Wood – Look Back in Angora – Glen or Glenda – tape 1878

First on this tape is Ed Wood: Look Back in Angora, a documentary about Edward D Wood. It’s almost all footage from Wood’s movies, with a few interviews with some of the people who knew him,

It’s quite a sad story, of someone who loved movies, but didn’t quite have the ability to make a good one, and who died penniless, only being hailed as a cult auteur after his death.

There’s a trailer for the revived Outer Limits.

Then, one of Ed Wood’s better known films, Glen or Glenda, the touching story of a transvestite, based heavily on Wood’s own life. Introduced and narrated by Bela Lugosi.
