Ed Wood fans take note!
27 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Recently discovered a nearly unknown gem that my fellow Ed Wood aficionados will appreciate. There's a 1970 made-for-TV flick starring Broderick Crawford called "Ransom Money" that is just as hilariously inept as anything the Woodster put out. HEAR one of the cheesiest theme songs in motion picture history! SEE the inexplicable moves the characters make! PONDER the ridiculous dialogue! LISTEN as inappropriately bouncy music accompanies scenes of supposed suspense! WATCH the awesome miscasting of Gordon Jump (Arthur Carlson of "WKRP in Cincinnati, and more recently a lonely Maytag repairman) as a tough homicide detective! Ya gotta love it!

"Ransom Money" is a public domain flick. Nobody has the copyright on it, apparently. You can get it for $3 on VHS on Amazon, but your best buy would be a 20-pack for under $10 at http://www.amazon.com/Suspense-20-Movie-Pack-Set/dp/B0007Z0OBI that also features some REALLY good suspense classics like "Detour," "He Walked By Night," "Scarlet Street," "The Stranger," and others, even including Wood's own cops 'n' robbers classic "Jail Bait." You can get a similar 50-movie pack for twice the price that apparently does not include "Ransom Money," so it's your call.
