    Was Director Ed Wood actually a genius of sorts?

    And just how accurate was this movie depiction of him?

    I absolutely love this film! Apparently, there was quite a bit that was true in spirit, if not entirely true to life. The film did a horrible job of relating the life of Dolores Fuller and her relation to Ed. The worst story to come out of the whole thing was SJP insulting Ms. Fuller to her face.

    Shame on SJP for her mistreatment of this lovely lady.

    It is nice to see the real Delores Fuller, who comes across as a true lady, with real class, unlike SJP.

    Horror film collector and editor of Famous Monsters Magazine, the late Forest J. Ackerman, also went on record as saying that the real Bela never swore.

    It makes me appreciate the gentleman that Bela truly was. However, I get a perverse pleasure out of the thought of him calling Karloff a "limey cocksucker".

    Well, you never know...

    He might have been a crazy kind of genius after all!

    He had good ideas, but he just didn't have the talent to executie them.

    Watch something like Manos: The Hands of Fate, and it'll make you realize that Wood, while inept, may not actually have been that bad after all.

    Glen or Glenda gets my pick as all-time favorite. I've never yet seen the sequence where Glen is visited by The Devil all the way through, because I'm so paralyzed with laughter before it's over that I can't ever catch the ending of it.
