    Description

    Ed Wood's Jail Bait and Test Tube Babies Photos. This excellent lot features 20 original 8" x 10" b&w still photographs from two exploitation "classics" by infamous director Edward D. Wood Jr.: Jail Bait (1954) and Test Tube Babies (1948), both starring Timothy Farrell (1922-1989). For 26 years, Farrell worked as a bailiff for the Los Angeles County Marshal's office, while simultaneously acting in low-budget films. In 1951, he was arrested during a vice raid, and finally was fired from his Marshal's post in 1971, after receiving a felony conviction for using officers in "political activities." Originally sentenced to six months in the slammer, he eventually was put on probation due to health reasons. The stills from Jail Bait feature Ed Wood, Farrell, Lyle Talbot, and Wood's girlfriend, Dolores Fuller. In Very Fine condition.
