ED D WOOD JR
Ed D Wood Jr Oct 10th 1924- Dec 10th 1978
The man who will be known for the rest of movie history, as creating the worst film in the world.
He's also one of the few movie makers who truly created his films from the heart.
His most famous movies of course being Plan 9 From Outer Space and Glen or Glenda and The Bride of the Monster.
Known also for being the man to have the final performance by Bela Lugosi, and many would even say, Ed Wood helped to create cult classics as we know it. Without even trying.
You know a guy is cool, when decades after his death, not only is he remembered as the father of cult films, but has a whole religion based on his idealism. ( Look up Church of Ed Wood. I think it's a major statement on how important films are in society.)
