Summary
Filmed entirely in black & white, "Ed Wood" is the true story of one man's dogged, albeit futile, determination to make it in Hollywood. a visionary of sorts, with no formal training, a fetish for wearing women's clothing, and almost no chance of being signed to direct a studio-made feature, Wood tenaciously follows his wayward dream. Although recognition and respect seems to elude him every step of the way, he never abandons hope of one day becoming a famous director. By banding together a bizarre cast of characters -- down-and-out screen legend Bela Lugosi; television horror queen Vampira; hulking swedish wrestler Tor Johnson; psychic showman Criswell; highbrow transvestite Bunny Breckinridge; hyperactive police officer Paul Marco; and even his girlfriend Dolores -- Wood creates ineptly-made, off-beat, low-budget independent films that somehow turn out to become classics -- after a fashion -- and turn him into a legend
