Re: Science Fiction Double feature
It's really hard to defend myself on this one.
I first encountered Plan 9 in the seventies as part of a double feature. From the moment Criswell appeared on screen through the entire mess I was fascinated by it. I bought the movie and started to explore other movies by the director. Yeah, I've seen Glen or Glenda and Robot Monster more than once.
Of course, when ED Wood came out I was in line.
Having been involved in the film production process and two business start ups it's not hard to identify with the dreams and the madness. There is a naive charm to these films that is different from films that are simply poor. these go far beyond poor and for a few of us come out the other side.
In 1959 John Wayne made the Alamo and Ed Wood produced this. If I could magically spend two weeks with either production I know where i would have taken my flying carpet
