Ed Wood (movie)

Ed Wood, directed by Tim Burton, stars Johnny Depp as the transvestite cult movie maker Edward D. Wood Jr. The film, shot in black and white, was made in 1994 (see also 1994 in film).

The film focuses on the part in Ed's life where he made his best-known films, and also where he met Bela Lugosi (Martin Landau) who starred as Dracula in the film of the same name. Other characters of the film include:

This is the only Tim Burton film to date that does not have a music score by Danny Elfman, Burton's perennial composer. In this case, the music was by Howard Shore.

Legal issues

A DVD edition of Ed Wood has had difficulty reaching store shelves in North America due to unspecified legal issues. In February 2004, a DVD was shipped to stores, only to be recalled again without explanation—though some copies quickly found their way to collectors' venues such as eBay. The DVD was finally released on Oct. 19, 2004.
