Ed Wood (USA, 1970)
80 min

Presented by AGFA + Something Weird Video + SECS

Edward D. Wood, Jr. was the filmmaker behind PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE and the author of hundreds of novels, including KILLER IN DRAG. He was a pall-bearer at Bela Lugosi’s funeral. Wood fought in the Pacific Ocean theater during World War II while wearing a bra and panties under his uniform. Basically, there will never be another hero like Ed Wood. And there will never be another movie like TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE. Unseen for almost fifty years, this is a surreal sexploitation detective comedy that would feel right at home on a triple-bill with John Waters’s MULTIPLE MANIACS and Russ Meyer’s THE IMMORAL MR. TEAS. With delirious narration by Wood himself, positive depictions of LGBTQ relationships, and a miraculous role by Ed Wood in drag as “Alecia,” TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE is a joyous swan song from one of the most seminal exploitation filmmakers of all time.

Content Warning: This movie contains full frontal nudity and simulated depictions of consensual sex.
