Conrad Brooks & Vampira from Plan 9 from Outer Space Conrad Brooks
Born: January 3, 1932
Died: December 6, 2017

Best know for his role as 'Jamie, the police officer' in 1959 Classic Cult Film 'Plan 9 From Outer Space'. Conrad has been called the 'Sir John Gielgud of bad cinema' and 'the low-budget John Barrymore'.

Conrad was born Conrad Biedrzycki on January 3, 1932 in Baltimore, Maryland USA. Conrad and his two brothers (Henry & Ted) traveled to Hollywood to break into movies. In 1948 (the year he arrived) he met up with Ed Wood (Which Conrad met in a coffee House when Ed was still a Radio Producer). Ed put all 3 brothers in his first film, a home movie called 'Range Revenge' (a 15 minute movie). Conrad continued to make movies with Ed and appeared in Ed's first commercial production 'Glen or Glenda' in 1952. Conrad appeared in six of Ed's films ('Glen or Glenda', Jail Bait', 'Bride of the Monster', Plan 9 from Outer Space', Night of the Ghouls', and 'The Sinister Urge') which makes him one of the most prominent cult figures of the classic "B" movies. Inspired by Ed Wood, Conrad made his own short film in 1961 called 'Mystery in Shadows'. Conrad has also appeared in some contemporary films like 'Bram Stoker's Dracula', ' Darkman', 'Lionhart' and 'Ed Wood (with Johnny Depp).
