Speaking of Ed Wood, which is also my favorite Tim Burton film, I was at an estate sale yesterday and found some real gems. The previous owners of the house must have had some sort of Hollywood connection, as there was an entire dresser full of old screenplays. They all had different talent agency covers on them, so I suspect the owner was a writer or producer. Anyway, among the stack of screenplays was a first draft of Ed Wood! Digging through another part of the house, I found a collection of "For You Consideration" Oscar screener VHS tapes which also included a copy of Ed Wood. Needless to say, I walked out with both of those items, and for only $11!
