Tim Burton directs this comic tale of Ed Wood (Johnny Depp), one of the worst directors ever. Wood has directed a number of terrible horror films. But when he befriends forgotten horror legend Bela Lugosi (Martin Landau in an Oscar-winning role) he thinks his luck is about to change. He sets out to make a masterpiece, but his love of cross-dressing and his unusual cast members turn the film into a disaster. Co stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Patricia Arquette, Jeffrey Jones and Bill Murray. Contains strong language.

Did you know?

  • Tim Burton claims he was drawn to this story because he saw similarities between himself and Ed Wood. He felt that Ed Wood's friendship with Bela Lugosi mirrored his own friendship with horror film icon Vincent Price.
  • Johnny Depp has said that his performance as Ed Wood was a mixture of the blind optimism of Ronald Reagan and the enthusiasm of the Tin Man from The Wizard Of Oz.
  • Bela Lugosi Jr. didn't want to see this film because he though it would portray his father incorrectly. When he finally saw the film he claimed that Martin Landau honoured his father in the performance.
  • Martin Landau's face had to be painted unnaturally white in order for the black-and-white film stock to record it properly.
  • One day Kathy Wood, the wife of Ed Wood, showed up on set. Tim Burton was nervous about what her reaction would be when she saw Johnny Depp. But when Depp came out of his trailer Kathy Wood instantly said 'That's my Eddie'.
