Descrizione libro Faber and Faber, London + Boston, 1994. Soft Cover. Condizione libro: Very Good. First Edition. pp 233. Small stamp to bottom epes, small mark to foredge, pale yellowing to exterior page edges + unobtrusive tiny fox to top edge - overall this copy is a lot better than it possibly sounds. Illustrated.' This is the story of film-maker Edward D. Wood, Jr., who was dubbed "the worst director of all time" for his low-budget cult features. This is a tale yold by those who lived and worked with him - a motley collection of dead-beats and losers whose lives were spent on the fringes of Hollywood. The book traces Wood's life from the glory days of Glen or Glenda, Bride of the Monster and Plan 9 from Outer Space to his eventual decline, wracked by alcoholism and reduced to writing and directing porn, and in the process evokes a fallen, nightmarish world in which there is no one to shed any light or hope. Yet, for all that Wood emerges from the swamp of pop culture's lowest depths as a true visionary. These eyewitness accounts of his life and times are both pathetic and endearing, and the book itself a perfect complement to Tim Burton's celebratory film, Ed Wood.'. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall.
