Ed Wood's TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE: New 2K Restoration!
Presented by AGFA, Something Weird Video & SECS
New 2K restoration! Introduction by Joe Ziemba and Sebastian del Castillo of the American Genre Film Archive! Edward D. Wood, Jr. was the filmmaker behind PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE and the author of hundreds of novels, including KILLER IN DRAG. He was a pall-bearer at Bela Lugosi's funeral. Wood fought in the Pacific Ocean theater during World War II while wearing a bra and panties under his uniform. Basically, there will never be another hero like Ed Wood. And there will never be another movie like TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE. Unseen for almost fifty years, this is a surreal sexploitation detective comedy that would feel right at home on a triple-bill with John Waterss MULTIPLE MANIACS and Russ Meyers THE IMMORAL MR. TEAS. With delirious narration by Wood himself, positive depictions of LGBTQ relationships, and a miraculous role by Ed Wood in drag as Alecia, TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE is a joyous swan song from one of the most seminal exploitation filmmakers of all time.
CONTENT WARNING: This movie contains full frontal nudity and simulated depictions of consensual sex. *No one under 18 admitted*
