Ed Wood

Edward Davis Wood, Jr. (born October 10, 1924, in Poughkeepsie, New York) is often referred to as one of the worst film directors of all time. While that title is debatable, he is certainly one of the most notorious, known for shooting cheaply made and poorly acted films on shoe-string budgets.

Wood often used the same actors in his films, and his "troupe" included Bela Lugosi, Tor Johnson, Paul Marco, Conrad Brooks, and Duke Moore.

Wood's movies have gained a remarkable fan base since his death. In 1994, Tim Burton directed a biopic about Wood starring Johnny Depp.

In 1998, a previously unreleased collection of Wood's writings was published as the book "Hollywood Rat Race". Written throughout the 1960s, the book serves partially as a memoir of Wood's experiences and partially as a guide to those seeking to make a career in the movie business.
