Edward Davis Wood, Jr. (October 10, 1924 – December 10, 1978) was an American motion picture screenwriter, director, producer, actor, author and editor (often performing many of these functions simultaneously). In the 1950s, Wood made a run of independently produced, extremely low-budget horror, science fiction and cowboy films, now celebrated for their technical errors, unsophisticated special effects, idiosyncratic dialogue, eccentric casts, and outlandish plot elements, although his flair for showmanship gave his productions at least a modicum of commercial success.

Wood's popularity waned soon after his biggest "name" star, Béla Lugosi, died. He was able to salvage a saleable feature from Lugosi's last moments on film, but his career declined thereafter. Toward the end of his life, Wood made pornographic movies and wrote pulp crime, horror, and sex novels. His posthumous fame began two years after his death, when he was awarded a Golden Turkey Award as Worst Director of All Time.[1] The lack of conventional filmmaking ability in his work has earned Wood and his films a considerable cult following.

Following the publication of Rudolph Grey's biography Nightmare of Ecstasy, Wood's life and work have undergone a public rehabilitation, with new light shed on his evident zeal and honest love of movies and movie production, and Tim Burton's biopic, Ed Wood, earned two Academy Awards.

I love Ed Wood the guy & the movie- even though the screenwriters fudged a lot of the facts for Burton's biofilm.

NIGHTMARE OF ECSTACY is required reading for anyone wanting to learn more about the man.

Got a bunch of his movies, including a couple of his softcore porn flicks.

I still need to upgrade from VHS though.

That's the one where Ed plays a photographer and all these people keep showing up (models, plumbers, etc.)and ending up in bed and then a group of girls show up and make Ed put on a baby-doll nightie and crawl on the floor while they humiliate him for taking advantage of his models?

I think that's the same film you're talking about?

I've got 2 versions of that flick - one called THE LOVE FEAST & one, edited down to short feature length called THE PHOTOGRAPHER.

It's funny, but creepy as fuck seeing an old, booze-bloated Ed crawling around being humiliated.

The main girl who humiliates him is totally hot though.

For Ed Wood porn, this one's even more hilarious:
