First comment! That never happens anymore!

Ed Howard said...

Wow, you've already got a lot of activity. This promises to be a busy week.

Here's my first post, on the Creature From the Black Lagoon films.

Greg said...

First comment! That never happens anymore!

It's the magic of Ed Wood!

Greg said...

Thanks Ed, let me post the link. I've got to head out for a bit but I'll read it as soon as I'm back.

bill r. said...

My post is up.

Arbogast said...

Bill, was it the nudes on my site?

bill r. said...

That, and the memories of Tanna that Greg has stirred up.

Marilyn said...

Well, I picked my film and it's not by Ed Wood. It's by Busby Berkeley.

Pax Romano said...

I did a small posting over at the TCM Classic Film Union about the blogathon - maybe this will draw even more folks!

http://fan.tcm.com/_Plan-9-From-Outer-Space-is-50/blog/422217/66470.html

Greg said...

Marilyn, that's an inspired choice, director I mean as I don't yet know the film but I'm assuming tomorrow I will. I can't wait.

Greg said...

Pax, thanks a million! I'd love to get more people involved in the celebration. Thanks again.

Radiation Cinema! said...

Greg: I've been looking forward to this. Here's my post:
The Unbroken Dream of Edward D. Wood, Jr. / Glen or Glenda?
-- Mykal from Radiation Cinema!

Ed Howard said...

Here's a second one, a Jack Arnold double feature.

Marilyn said...

It's up: http://ferdyonfilms.com/2009/07/the-spirit-of-ed-wood-blogatho.php

Tor Hershman said...

Glory to The Savior of all our glutei maximi,
Edward D. Wood, Jr.
and his most supernal work
“Plan 9 from Outer Space”
in which he gives to all humankind the glorious knowledge that
“All you [us] of Earth are idiots.”

I would also suggest Savior Wood's
"Hollywood Rat Race" as an excellent read.

Here I offer my humble homage to
no-budget film making.....

Woodness be with Thee
on
groovin’ safari,
Tor Hershman

Greg said...

Thank you Tor, I'll cherish that video always.

Why?

Because of death.

"MORE GOLD!" I've posted a special PLAN 9 report at The Exploding Kinetoscope:

Marilyn said...

This isn't an official entry in the blogathon, but I think it captures the spirit so well that it belongs in the linkroll: http://blog.iblamethepatriarchy.com/2009/07/07/iphone-cinema/

Robert Cashill said...

A few words from my part of the universe:

http://robertcashill.blogspot.com/2009/07/shocking-facts.html

weepingsam said...

I've honored not a movie, but perhaps the Plan 9 From Outer Space of juvenile series fiction (not to mention a bit of an origin story), the perfectly and delightfully atrocious Hardy Boys tale, The Disappearing Floor, of which I am inordinately fond.

Ed Howard said...

Another double feature from me, this time about a pair of Tod Browning movies.

Bob Turnbull said...

Greg, here's my submission on The Space Amoeba.

Radiation Cinema! said...

Greg: For me, one of the most woodian directors of atomic age B films was contemporary, Richard Cunha. Here is my review of his She Demons, which has a real Wood flavor. http://www.radiationcinema.com/search/label/She%20Demons

Erich Kuersten said...

Greg, I got a new post for the blogathon, on the Woodesque John J. Parker's DAUGHTER OF HORROR (AKA DEMENTIA)

Fox said...

Hey Greg, hey bro. I have a rad post up at my site now man.

http://fox-tractorfacts.blogspot.com/2009/07/spirit-of-ed-wood-blog-thon-larry.html

Marilyn said...

You've picked a very "guys only" blogathon topic. Proves again that women are superior beings.

Greg said...

Boy, where'd that come from? So celebrating a "can-do" spirit is a guy thing? So you're saying women just don't have that in them. Well, I wouldn't say that but if it's what you believe...

Ed Howard said...

Everyone knows women can't make horror movies.

Greg said...

And there have never been any women filmmakers who built their reputation working on micro-budgets.

Greg said...

Well Marilyn, I hope you've learned your lesson.

[Greg looks smug for a moment, then gets nervous and runs]

Marilyn said...

I'm saying that the 99% of your blogathon participants are men, showing that cheesy/bad movies are only crushed to the collective bosom of guys.

Greg said...

Ah but that 1% (you) is extraordinary!

Soon, with Pat and possibly Kimberly it might inch up to 3%.

Keeping fingers crossed.

Darrell Bratz said...

My contrtibution here:

Ed Howard said...

Here's another sci-fi double feature from me.

Radiation Cinema! said...

Greg: Where there is Tor Johnson, there is the flavor of Wood. Not only does this film have the noted and iconic
Wood star in it, the Director, Coleman Francis, shares with Ed Wood a similar through-a-prism-strangely view of life and similar budget strangulations.
For your approval: The Beast of Yucca Flats.

Erich Kuersten said...

Okay, another one for the fire: Mesa of Lost Women!

C. Jerry Kutner said...

José Mojica Marins Meets the Spirit of Ed Wood in the World of Coffin Joe:

Ryan Kelly said...

I wrote up Burton's movie as my submission.

http://medflyquarantine.blogspot.com/2009/07/artist-trapped-in-hacks-body.html

Ed Howard said...

Another double feature, this one a Karloff/Lugosi showcase.

W.B. Kelso said...

Thanks for letting anyone contribute.

Weiss and Wood: When Fetishes Collide (Glen or Glenda 1953)

http://microbrewreviews.blogspot.
com/2009/07/weiss-and-wood-when-
fetishes-collide.html

Radiation Cinema! said...

Greg: For my swan song for the blogathon, I offer Phil Tucker's Robot Monster. Like Ed Wood, Tucker approached film-making as an art form, not a commercial enterprise, and he took it all deadly serious. And, like Wood, the outcome of his efforts was unpredictable and, to say the least, unique.

Thanks, Greg, for hosting this blogathon. It was unpredictable and, to say the least, unique. -- Mykal Banta

Pierre Fournier said...

A brilliant blogathon! Great contributions by all. Thanks very much, Greg, for doing this.

Here's my contribution, on Al Adamson's Dracula vs. Frankenstein...
http://frankensteinia.blogspot.com/2009/07/spirit-of-ed-wood-blogathon-dracula-vs.html

I'm also posting Ed Wood images on my picture blog, Monster Crazy, all week.

Thanks again!

Erich Kuersten said...

Wow, I can't believe it's almost over. Here's my last one, NIGHT OF THE GHOULS, this time on Bright Lights Film Journal.

bill r. said...

Woo, I got it in before the last day! I don't know why that matters to me, but it does.

Professor Brian O'Blivion said...

Here's one about Bela. Cool idea BTW.

Pax Romano said...

One more, just a look at some of the Plan 9 related videos I found on You Tube.

Ed Howard said...

Here's my last entry for the blogathon, on the utterly dull Monolith Monsters

Craig Blamer said...

Not sure if it's what you're looking for, but:

The Flying Maciste Brothers said...

Alright! Alright! We've missed deadline! Not like that wasn't expected... We've been working on this one for more than a week and it's blown into something quite large and personal for us Macistes. So, post this as a marker, if you will:

http://www.destructibleman.com/2009/07/destructible-pumpkins.html

We shall be finished in a few days. Thanks for the gracious extension!:)

I know this is incredibly late but if anyone's interested, I posted a review of Glen or Glenda over at my bad movie blog Your Stupid Minds.

http://www.yourstupidminds.com/2009/05/glen-or-glenda-1953.html

I find that Glen or Glenda is often overlooked, primarily because it's really not that bad.
