The rare Ed Wood film TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE (1970), long thought-lost, is planned for Blu-ray release in 2018 from AGFA/SWV.

Interesting---here's an article about the other controversial issues swirling around behind the scenes during its September 25th screening at the Alamo Drafthouse last week, as well as the screening itself:

Thanks for posting those articles. I really hope that AGFA/SWV release TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE as soon as possible. The film actually surfaced shortly before Rudolph Grey's book about Ed Wood was first published, but has remained underground until now.

You're welcome-----I found this interesting simply because I had no idea Ed Wood made any films past the '50s. I also still haven't finished watching Tim Burton's ED WOOD film either, so this is a good reminder to do so.
