Martin Landau played the part of Bela Lugosi in the Johnny Depp movie of Ed Wood.

I forgot to mention that Namomi corrected me on who played Lugosi's part after his death and it was Ed Wood's dentist.

Naomi, I stand corrected on the Ed Wood. I wasn't sure if it was Martin Landau or not. I once had a halloween mask of Tor Johnson (the big goon looking guy on the trailer) and my buddies and I played a prank on some girls who were having a slumber party (when I was a teen) and they left the patio door blinds open and we hopped the fence. They had no idea we were there and they were watching TV and eating popcorn...and then they totally went ape when they saw me standing there at the window in that mask and a trench coat and they started screaming and running around all over the place like chickens with their heads cut off. We were stupid teens-we could have been shot now that I think back!

A little Plan 9 trivia. This has to be the world's most awful movie. It is so bad that it has now become a cult classic. Bela Lugosi died during the filming and I think Martin Landau (from Mission Impossible) doubled for him, hence the cape pulled over his face all the time. I thougt it was bizarre that one of the aliens was a vampire from Spacelyvania????? Ed Wood made one more movie and it was called Glen or Glenda?, a movie about a guy who gets a sex change. I think (from what I've read) that the money backing the show came from some Christian organization who pulled the funding from Ed Wood the director. Can't blame them. Ed Wood will live in infamy as the worst director know to man (besides me-seen any of my vids?).

I expected it to be bad beyond belief--and it was. Thus, I was not disappointed. Clear as mud?
