Ed Wood's "Bride of the Monster" released 1955

Certainly not the crown jewel in Ed Wood's tiara of campy movies, but "Bride of the Monster", released May 11, 1955, was Wood's only commercially successful film upon its release.  It was Bela Lugosi's last movie where he had a speaking part and it was hilariously sliced and diced by the crew of the Satellite of Love, "Mystery Science Theatre 3000".

I especially love the scene where the newspaper clerk's pencil keeps appearing and disappearing.
