NEW YORK — Infamous "bad movie" director and sometimes pornographer Ed Wood’s "The Young Marrieds" will be released on DVD on Nov. 18 by After Hours Cinema as part of a three-film collection titled "Ed Wood's Dirty Movies.”

The distributors said the film is one of the most rare “lost” movies in cult filmdom, so much so it wasn’t even known if it existed.

Discovered by “porn archaeologist” Dimitrios Otis in 2007, “The Young Marrieds” is acknowledged to be Wood’s final film. This discovery follows Otis's other discovery of the lost porno chic relic, Canada's first hardcore porn film “Sexcula.”

To celebrate this release, New York's Anthology Film Archives will host the world premiere of the film as part of "The 10th Dimension: Edward D. Wood Jr." This retrospective will run from Sept. 11-18 with “The Young Marrieds” featured on Sept. 14.

The screening will be hosted by Rudolph Grey, the author of the definitive biography on the filmmaker "Nightmare of Ecstasy: The Life and Art of Edward D. Wood Jr."

According to the distributors, “The Young Marrieds” is both a step deeper into the adult film world Wood helped pioneer, and at the same time a plea for tolerance of alternate sexual lifestyles and identities. It is the only Wood film that expresses his personal feelings on homosexuality. “Let us be patient, tender, wise, and forgiving in this strange task of living. For if we fail each other, each will be gray driftwood lapsing into the abyss," the film’s narrator said.
