The Date: December 10
The Movie: Ed Wood (1994)
What Is It?: Tim Burton’s greatest film sacrificed none of his signature aesthetic quirks to tell the story of notoriously awful filmmaker Ed Wood, who liked to dress in panties and angora sweaters while hanging out with Hollywood kooks and making movies about space vampires. Needless to say, Martin Landau stuffs the film under his cape and walks away with it.
Why Today?: On this day in 1978, the real Ed Wood died.
