I love Tim Burton. My dad had a tiny role in Ed Wood as the bartender who serves Jonny Depp (Ed Wood) a drink at Musso & Frank's just before Depp/Wood meets Orson Wells. Blink and you miss him, but that was the kind of roles he usually got. The lovely synchronicity of the role was that my dad's big screen roles were all in movies that were the late '60's - early '70's equivalent of Ed Wood movies. Made for a dime, distributed to drive-ins (remember those?), shady deals to keep the production running, eventually ending up on Mystery Science Theater 2000. Ed Wood brings back my time with him on the sets of these wastes of celluloid. Ah, the golden age of Hollyweird.
