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.

Review: Nightmare of Ecstasy: The Life and Art of Edward D. Wood

User Review  - Mike Hunchback - Goodreads

As major a work as there could ever be ... Devastating, hilarious, brazen and more researched than a freaking encyclopedia. There's a significant "before and after" in biographies, and it's because of this book. Read full review
