Guitarist and writer Rudolph Grey wrote the Ed Wood, Jr biography Nightmare of Ecstasy (1992) on which the biopic Ed Wood was based.
The footage of Bela Lugosi ended up in Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959).
The movie takes many liberties with the actual events. Bela Lugosi did not actually wrestle with a fake octopus in Bride of the Monster. An obvious body double was used. Bela Lugosi remarried before he died. Also, his relatives do not recall him ever swearing. There are no reports of Ed Wood ever meeting Orson Welles. Plan 9 from Outer Space did not premiere at the famous Pantages Theatre.
