Ambitious but troubled movie director Edward D. Wood Jr. tries his best to fulfill his dreams, despite his lack of support.
Danny Dayton's final film appearance.
Edward D. Wood, Jr.:
This is the one. 'This' is the one I'll be remembered for.
Ed Wood is depicted as the first to approach pro-wrestler The Super Swedish Angel (Tor Johnson) about appearing in movies. In fact, the real Tor Johnson had been appearing in numerous films since the 1930s.
In the opening credits, Johnny Depp's name appears in capital letters, followed by the title - both of them alternating in black and white, as though being illuminated by lightning - and the rest of the main cast are credited on tombstones. Supporting cast and crew names appear in white against dark, rainy sets featuring meant-to-look-low-budget effects such as a giant tentacle and flying saucers in outer space.
