Final Curtain (1957)

Duke Moore, Dudley Manlove
Edward D. Wood, Jr.
Cult film director Ed Wood created Final Curtain as a television pilot for a proposed series called Portraits of Terror. In this episode, a disturbed actor recounts the strange happenings in what appears to be a haunted theater. Duke Moore, a regular member of the Wood stock company, plays the actor; the narration is by Dudley Manlove (Plan Nine From Outer Space). The pilot, filled with many familiar Ed Wood touches, was thought to be lost until turning up in 2012 at the Slamdance Film Festival. (BW)
