An upbeat look at Ed Wood.
Ed Wood (Johnny Depp) is the worst director in Hollywood. He is surrounded by weirdos, transvestites and a drug addicted Bela Lugosi (Martin Landau in the role that won him an Oscar). After Lugosi dies, Wood convinces the Baptist Church of Beverly Hills to finance "Plan 9 From Outer Space". Wood uses existing footage of Bela Lugosi before he died and a bald chiropractor to be Lugosi's double. The film looks like it won't be finished and Wood gets stressed, so he goes to a bar where he meets ORSON WELLES. Wood and Welles bond and an encouraged Wood finishes Plan 9 From Outer Space.
Thanks Don P!
