An ambitious but troubled movie director tries his best to fulfill his dream, despite his lack of support.
When Ed Wood talks to film backer Old Man McCoy in the meat packing scene, Mr McCoy says "I got a son, he's a little slow, but a good boy." In real-life, Rance Howard's son is Producer and Director Ron Howard.
You're watching our Halloween movie, "White Zombie", starring Bela Lugosi, John Harron, Madge Bellamy, and a bunch of other people I've never heard of.
When Ed visits Bela Lugosi's home, sidewalk outside his house appears and disappears depending on whether camera is aimed at exterior of house or is depicting Lugosi's view from front door, indicating two different houses were used for scene.
Immediately preceding the final credits, the film features a "What Ever Happened To" and/or "Where They Are Now" sequence about Edward D. Wood Jr., Kathy Wood, Bela Lugosi, John Breckinridge, Dolores Fuller, Tor Johnson, Maila Nurmi, Paul Marco' , Conrad Brooks, Tom Mason, and Criswell. The commentaries include such statements as: "Bela Lugosi never rose from the grave, but after appearing in 103 films, he is more famous than ever. Today, his movie memorabilia outsells Boris Karloff's by a substantial margin" and "Dolores Fuller, after leaving Ed, went on to a successful songwriting career. Her compositions include the Elvis Presley hits 'Rock-a-Hula Baby' and 'Do the Clam.'"
