The Life and Art of Edward D Wood This is an updated edition of the biography of cult American film maker Ed Wood which formed the basis of the film Ed Wood' starring Johnny Depp, Bill Murray and Patricia Arquette. It examines one of Hollywood's most iconoclastic, tragic figures: director, screenwriter, pornographer and hellraiser as well as master of outrageous kitsch, absurd supernatural horror and campy suspense. A hilarious and heart-breaking portrayal of a brave eccentric and sometimes insane film maker.'

This book is a hodgepodge of interviews with people who knew/ worked with Ed Wood- notorious for producing some badly made/ unintentionally funny films in the 50's & 60's. This book charts the sad decline of Wood into alcoholism and eventually an early death.
