Item 695 - Ed Wood Catalog 539 (Nov 2018)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $4,000.00 +
Sold Price: $4,900.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Vintage glossy 8.25 x 10 close-up photo of the cherished B-movie filmmaker, signed and inscribed in green fountain pen, "To Glenda, an interestingly pretty girl, Sincerely, Edward D. Wood, Jr.” Reverse of photo bears numerous typed captions listing Wood's film and stage credits, in addition to 'Dialects' and 'Characters played,' which includes: 'Leading man,' 'Very old man,' 'Neurotic,' 'Young sweater girl,' 'Old woman,' and 'Cowgirl (Stunt Work).' In very good to fine condition, with scattered light creasing and a couple of short edge tears.

Photos signed by Wood are exceedingly rare, with this example being just the second we have ever offered. Elevating this particular photo, however, is its apparently early timeframe—none of Wood’s more ‘notable’ films are listed on the reverse—the ‘Characters’ section that provides insight into Wood’s predilection for both male and female roles, and the inscription, “To Glenda,” an unmistakable reference to Wood’s 1953 cult classic Glen or Glenda, a semi-autobiographical docudrama about cross-dressing and transsexuality.
