Plot
This is a tape available from Something Weird Video containing outtakes from the undiscovered Ed film Take It Out In Trade. The footage has no soundtrack and only contains extra shots and footage of Ed directing. various pieces of music are played over the footage, but they selections are not keyed to the footage on screen.

The whole thing loks as if they just grabbed the pieces of film out of a box and strung it together. We'll see three versions of a particular take in a row and then see four nore versions ten minutes later (after watching completely unrelated footage in between.) There's no attempt made to re-contruct the film in any semblance of order. It's just thrown together as they found it.

The basic plot of the original Take It Out In Trade seems to be that parents of a young girl hire a private detective to locate her. He finds her working in a brothel and things procede from there.
'Wood'-ness
This is a hard one to guage. You get a good sense of what this film would have been like, but it's tossed-together nature makes it hard to actually discern the plot of the original film. Without that sense of story, the only feeling of Ed we get is in the over-the-top nature of the acting (especially by O'Donnell).

The choice of music can get annoying at times and the material would have been better served by being carefully organized by scene and augmented with a commentary instead of the music track.

For completists only.
