There will never be another hero like Ed Wood (PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE). And there will never be another movie like TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE. Unseen for almost fifty years, this is a surreal sexploitation comedy that would feel right at home on a triple-bill with John Waters's MULTIPLE MANIACS and Russ Meyer's 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.
