Ed only acts in this movie. Apparently, Ed's appearance is significant enough that he can be clearly discerned, yet I could not find him. I have also received word that the "Ed Wood" listed in the credits may be a different Ed altogether; one who was married to a "Carol Wood" (also listed in the credits) at the time the film was made. I can't sit through this movie again (it's that bad), so if you have any idea where in the film he is (so I can confirm it), please e-mail me at
