Wood's rare TV pilot has been restored and screened at Slamdance. No word on a DVD release at this point.

Not that I'm NOT interested in this (and not that I would normally look to Entertainment Weekly for meticulous Ed Wood, Jr. reportage), but it is kind of odd that this particular lost-ish Wood project gets this kind of exposure. Wood-related rarities have been turning up for twenty years with very little fanfare forgotten A.C. Stephen films, NECROMANIA, etc. Still, I reckon it is because FINAL CURTAIN is at least a genre piece in line with Wood's most popular SF/horror efforts, rather than yet more grimy and strange vintage adult product.

Back in the late 1980's, both FINAL CURTAIN and another Ed Wood short film, THE SUN WAS SETTING, were said to be "in the hands of a private collector." Nothing further has surfaced on either film, so I welcome this news. Hopefully, THE FINAL CURTAIN will be released on DVD by somebody.

The NY Times has an article on this somewhere, too. This is a video segment.

This is great news.

As he did before with his unfinished project Rock and Roll Hell, Wood cannibalized a good chunk of Final Curtain and inserted it into his feature film Night of the Ghoul, which also sat on the shelf unseen (except for a premiere) until the 1980s. All the footage of Duke Moore wandering silently in blackness is from Final Curtain. It's also why Wood had Moore in a tux in Night of the Ghoul, so he could match it with the Final Curtain footage; there is even an entire clumsy dialogue scene to explain Moore's unusual (for a police detective!) attire.
