Short Answer: Edward Davis Wood Jr. was that rare mix of [[GiftedlyBad relentless motivation and determination combined with a complete lack of natural talent]]. He was that guy who made ''Film/Plan9FromOuterSpace'' and a bunch of other crappy movies. [[WholesomeCrossdresser He also liked to wear dresses.]]

* LoveableSexManiac: As he said in ''The Photographer'': "I like girls, girls, girls, girls, girls! Tall ones, fat ones, skinny ones, it doesn't matter - blond hair, brunette... girls! Girls! The only problem is - there isn't enough time for them!"

* BunnyEarsLawyer - Not a bunny ears filmmaker, oh no, no, but a Bunny Ears Marine. He fought in some of the worst WWII Pacific bloodbaths and came back with a chest full of medals. And he claimed to do at least one battle while wearing women's underwear.

* GiftedlyBad - Ed is probably the best example.



* InsultBackfire - What the ''Golden Turkey Awards'' writers tried to do when voting Wood the Worst Director and ''Plan 9'' Worst Movie. What happened was it made cinemaphiles look back on Wood's career and begin honoring him for [[GiftedlyBad both his poor vision and his great heart]].

Added DiffLines:

* CampStraight: Ignoring his crossdressing, Wood was flamboyant on his own, but was very much a LoveableSexManiac into women.


Added DiffLines:

* ManlyTears: Kathy Wood said she first saw him, he was crying in a bar over something, which attracted her to him, saying she had a thing for lost puppies.

* {{Keet}} - Oh, the enthusiasm he put into every film for sure.

to:

* {{Keet}} - {{Keet}}: Oh, the enthusiasm he put into every film for sure.sure. Rare films of Wood directing his films show him gallivanting around the set, joking with actors and having an enormously good time. ''Look Back in Angora'' described him as "pixie-ish".

Added DiffLines:

* CryingWolf: While complications from his alcoholism probably still would've killed him, the heart attacks he'd fake to his wife as a cruel practical joke didn't help when he had his very real fatal one. It's rumored that she even yelled at him to shut up when [[CassandraTruth he called for help]].

* {{Determinator}}: The man survived the bloodiest Allied battle in WorldWarII - he applied that same drive to making films. No matter what obstacles, he was going to get that movie made, dammit.

* {{Badass}} - His military service pretty much solidified him as one.
