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.
