Crocker, Keith Ed Wood - Hollywood's Worst Filmmaker, or Misunderstood Genius? Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Other,
Visual Arts- Other
Ed Wood the man who directed the infamous and unintentionally funny Plan 9 From Outer Space has often been accused of being Hollywood's worst filmmaker but is this criticism fair? In this program, we explore the life of Ed Wood, from his days as a marine Corporal during WWII were he served in the battle of Tarawa to his career as a screenwriter in Hollywood, penning such classics as The Bride & The Beast (1958) and later working his way to directing cult classics as Bride of the Monster (1955), Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959) and Night of the Ghouls (1959). Woods somewhat autobiographical Glenn or Glenda (1953) explored his passion for dressing like a woman. Writer Jim Morton said of Ed Wood; "Eccentric and individualistic, Edward D. Wood, Jr. was a man born to film. Lesser men, if forced to make movies under the conditions Wood faced, would have thrown up their hands in defeat." As a bonus, we will also explore other filmmakers whose works are so bad it proves that Ed Wood was actually quite ahead of his time.

Media- Film,

Here is the perfect presentation for the centennial of the war that was supposed to end all wars. With this program we use vintage film clips of both silent and early sound film excursions into the subject of WWI, starting with the propaganda films of D.W. Griffith and Eric Von Strohiem as well as examining later films and made for TV productions dealing with the subject of the war and it's aftermath. This program explores the power of propaganda and it's importance during war time, as well as the repercussions of loaded and insightful imagery that is often used in times of conflict. Praise from Linda White of Elmont Public Library regarding World War One As Seen Through Hollywood's Lens: Your presentation was Superb from the beginning to the end. The audience was captivated, all eyes were on the screen. All the drama at the beginning and the end was totally unexpected. Great job Mr. Director. I never watch War Movies; but this program kept my interest. Highly Recommended! Our Patrons can't stop talking about it. Keith keep your programs coming, they are the Very Best !!!
