ULTRA RARE ED WOOD BELONGINGS FOR SALE! SHYBOY TIM'S BIRTHDAY RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!
This is beyond unbelievable. I had no idea something like this even existed anymore. The end of Ed Wood's life was not a happy time, and I was always under the belief that he had lost everything by the time of his death. Belongings tossed out after multiple moves and dying penniless. Read Rudolph Grey's Nightmare Of Ecstasy for the whole crazy story.
Anyway, there's an auction that begins on March 12th, and one of the items available is Ed Wood's steamer trunk filled with personal memorabilia, production photos and notes, and loads of other assorted ephemera that I never would have guessed was still around. Check out this stuff:
There's a lot more amazing stuff in that trunk. Click on the trunk photo on the auction page and browse thought it all. The auction also features various posters and lobby cards from his films. It's really cool stuff, and it looks like it's pretty high quality. Starting bids are high, especially on the trunk, but what's money if it means you can get me such a unique birthday gift?
