Maila Nurmi

1. – Marie Arnold, Necromania, 1971. “All you have  to do is be in a coffin with nothing on – and sit up,”  said Ed Wood. “Miss Garbo isn’t working?” snapped his regular actress, aka “glamour ghoul” Vampira. “She can probably sit up better than  I can.  [Pause] I’ve done professional suicide before, but I draw the line at porno.” She was ill, in a wheelchair, and refused to be Madame Heles, solving  a young couple’s boudoir blunders, in Wood’s most famous stag movie, a $7,000 budget for  two versions of his 20-page script,  “Hot” and “Hot! Hot! Hot!”  Plus  two cameramen when one refused to shoot the hard-core action..
