Jailbait

Last night I watched Jailbait, which I’ve been meaning to see for years. I’m a big Ed Wood fan. I once told someone that the reason I’m interested in his movies and his life is I find it comforting that sometimes people with no talent really do fail. Bride of the Monster is probably my favorite, followed by Glenn or Glenda which I watch every Halloween. There’s something about that dream sequence in the middle that outdoes every horror movie I might be watching that night. Dolores Fuller was the best thing about last night, it seemed like she delivered every line while concentrating hard on remembering that she’s acting. Meanwhile the woman that played the gangster’s moll walked through her part like a sleepwalking zombie. Signature line: “Although I’ve never met the gentleman, we had a long conversation this afternoon earlier in the day.” Mull that one over.
