Ed Wood

Ed Wood wrote, produced, and directed 'Plan 9 From Outer Space' which is considered the worse film ever made. Ed Wood was a cross-dresser and made the movie 'Glen or Glenda' in 1953, a quite shocking film for it's time. Wood played the title role of Glen/Glenda.

The only reason his films are still watched today is that they are quite funny for the fact that they're so bad.

  1. Yes, they are bad but I think there are plenty of really bad movies which are also quite popular.

    Any movie that relies on explosion after explosion, improbable car chases and people waving big guns for extended periods qualify as bad in my book. Dialog, such as what George Lucas writes is also bad... and unlike Ed Wood's, George's scripts are not funny, just boring.
