Do you remember staying up late at night and watching classic black and white horror movies? The ones that always opened with a terrible thunderstorm pounding down on an old abandoned house? Chances are those films were made by director Ed Wood, who carved out a niche in Hollywood in the 1950s with his cheaply made and outlandishly dramatic productions. Wood?s movies were often ridiculed for technical errors and poor special effects that by today?s standards seem entirely juvenile.

The 32nd ?Occasional? Pasadena Doo Dah Parade celebrates the post-holiday season in its typically loud, irreverent style on Sunday, Jan. 18, stepping off at 11:30 a.m. The boisterous, twisted sister to Pasadena?s prim and proper Rose Parade is expected to draw an estimated 45,000 fun-lovers from all over Southern California and parts unknown. Since 1978, Doo Dah has received national attention and has been named ?Best Parade in America? by Readers? Digest, and is included in the book 50 Places To See Before You Die. Convenient parking is located in structures adjacent to the parade route.

Some have crashed and burned and have never been heard from again. But freakish or tender, profound or peculiar, Johnny Depp is ever-changing, an actor endlessly exploring the ramifications of the strange and the wonderful, a voyager going where few have gone before. A glance at his beginnings did not indicate thespian promise.
