Director Ed Wood with friends Ted and Conrad Brooks.  Conrad (right) would appear in the majority of Ed’s films including Glen or Glenda, Jailbait, Bride of the Monster, Night of the Ghouls, Plan 9 From Outerspace (he had the memorable role of the jerky little cop that unloads a round of bullets into Lugoi’s stand in, and is eventually slapped down by Tor Johnston) and The Sinister Urge.  He also made a cameo in Tim Burton’s Oscar winning film on Ed Wood, where he played the bartender that serves Johnny Depp, in the role of Eddie, and Orson Welles.  Now 81 and living in West Virginia, Conrad Brooks is the last surviving member of the “Ed Wood Players,” and oddly enough I’ve gotten into the habit of talking to him on a weekly basis.  A really nice old timer with great stories to tell, Conrad will be doing an interview for popcultureaddict.com later this summer.  More details to come!
