Ed Wood script
Ed Wood (1994)
Synopsis: Because of his eccentric habits and bafflingly strange films, director Ed Wood (Johnny Depp) is a Hollywood outcast. Nevertheless, with the help of the formerly famous Bela Lugosi and a devoted cast and crew of show-business misfits who believe in Ed's off-kilter vision, the filmmaker is able to bring his oversize dreams to cinematic life. Despite a lack of critical or commercial success, Ed and his friends manage to create an oddly endearing series of extremely low-budget films.

BUNNY:

What does that old queen know? He

wasn't even there!

(he knocks back a drink)

Sending a copy boy to do his dirty

work. Well fuck him!

DOLORES:

Do I really have a face like a horse?

PAUL MARCO:

What does "ostentatious" mean?

Ed calmly waves his arms for attention. He tries to smile.

ED:

Hey. Hey, it's not that bad. You

just can't concentrate on the

negative. He's got some nice things

to say...

(he scans the review)

See, "The soldier costumes are very

realistic." That's positive!

Everyone kind of stares at their drinks, depressed. Ed

launches into an upbeat speech.

ED:

Hell, I've seen a lot worse reviews.

I've seen ones where they didn't even

like the costumes! Like, that last

"Francis the Mule" picture -- it got

terrible notices. But it was a huge

hit.

PAUL MARCO:

Lines around the block.

ED:

So don't take it too seriously.

We're all doin' great work.

CONRAD:

You really think so?

ED:

Absolutely! It's just the beginning.

I promise this:
If we stick together,

one day I'll make every single one

of you famous.
