 Informat.io on Edward Wood 1st Earl Of Halifax
Edward Frederick Lindley Wood, 1st Earl of Halifax, KG, OM, GCSI, GCMG, GCIE, PC (16 April 1881–23 December 1959), known as The Lord Irwin from 1925 until 1934 and as The Viscount Halifax from 1934 until 1944, was a British Conservative politician.
Halifax had severe doubts during the lead up to the complete occupation in March 1939 but he made little effort to alter British policy fearing Britain's military unpreparedness to meet the Nazi threat and allowed himself to be sidelined as Chamberlain attended fruitless conferences in Germany (Berchtesgaden, Godesberg and Munich) without him.
Halifax is still a somewhat controversial figure, and his autobiography as well as many of the books about, or discussing, him have their own agendas.

 Ed Wood
Wood also prided himself on the fact that he was the only film-maker other than Welles to be writer, director and usually an actor in most of his films, although it is likely that Wood took on all of these positions mostly to save time and money.
Wood’s careers of novelist and filmmaker would often intersect in that his books would often be novelisations of his own screenplays or that the stories from his novels would give way to the writing of a screenplay.
As Ed Wood is generally seen to be a nažØve and friendly individual with high hopes but an easy-going attitude -- an image perhaps deriving from Johnny Depp's and Tim Burton's portrayal of him in the 1994 biopic -- some of his novels may be shocking to the average film/literature historian.
