"Plan 9 From Outer Space" released 1959
Oftentimes referred to as the worst movie of all time, "Plan 9 from Outer Space" was released July 22, 1959. Its director Ed Wood, Jr. (aka worst director of all time) said this was his pride and joy. If you've seen the movie, you understand why. From Maili Nurmi's silent performance (her wishes) to chiropractor Tom Mason replacing Bela Lugosi, who passed away before the movie was completed. Mason goes through the entire movie, with a cape over his face, never showing his face since he loooked nothing like Lugosi.
But the movie is so bad, it's very entertaining.
