Interesting if flawed

This made for cable television documentary is by no means complete but it is a rare chance to see archive footage of interviews and various clips from his films but it is somewhat spoilt by the endless showing of the "Bela" ident which goes to show how many ad breaks there are in America.

Presented by Forrest J Ackerman (Famous Monsters of Filmland) it gives an honest portrait of a young man with dreams of coming to America to become an actor , his subsequent rise to fame and his tragic end as a Heroin addict.

Featuring interviews with co-stars, mostly form his later films with Ed Wood this documentary is a must for anyone interested in a man who changed the face of horror.
