How could it be that Ed Wood, Jr., the young man who wore panties at the Battle of Tarawa in World War II, went on to become the Orson Welles of low-budget films? Through film clips, still photos, and extensive interviews with the bizarre cadre of actors, ministers and girlfriends who were involved in such projects as Wood's Plan 9 From Outer Space, this documentary explores
the man and the cult legend that has sprung up since his death.
status as the Worst Filmmaker of All Time has brought him posthumous acclaim in both the film and art worlds - a recognition hardly imaginable to the man who died penniless and unknown in the late 1970s.
