Ed Wood was the filmmaker behind PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, the author
of hundreds of adult novels, and a pall-bearer at Bela Lugosi's funeral.
Wood fought in the Pacific Ocean theater during World War II while
wearing a bra and panties under his uniform. Basically, there will never
be another hero like Ed Wood. And there will never be another movie
like TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE. Unseen for almost fifty years, this is a
surreal sexploitation detective comedy that would feel right at home on a
triple-bill with John Waters's MULTIPLE MANIACS and Russ Meyer's THE
IMMORAL MR. TEAS. With delirious narration by Wood himself, positive
depictions of LGBTQ relationships, and a miraculous role by Ed Wood in
drag as "Alecia," TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE is a joyous swan song from one of
the most seminal exploitation filmmakers of all time.
