131. Johnny Depp "Ed Wood" and Martin Landau "Bela Lugosi" working "Jacob's Ladder" climbing arc laboratory device from Ed Wood signed by Landau. (Touchstone, 1994) Original high voltage traveling arc prop constructed of 2-metal 27 in. rabbit ear posts emanating from a 22 x 7 x 4.25 in. wooden black base box ornamented with static cranks and retro tech embellishments. The box is inscribed in silver ink by Landau along with a quote from the movie, "I'm not getting near that goddamned thing, Martin Landau, Bela", referring to the scene that features this device when "Ed Wood" (Depp) directs "Bela" (Landau) to sit close to the sparking machine causing Bela to exclaim, "I'm not getting near that goddamned thing. One of them burned me on the Return of Chandu!". The device is powered by a 13 x 5 x 7 in. metal transformer box, attached to clay terminals by wires, and when activated, produces a continuous train of arcing sparks that rise upwards between the two posts, creating a spectacular buzz. Exhibiting minor production wear. In very good, working condition. The Landau autograph was obtained on April 13, 2013 at Monsterpalooza convention in Burbank, CA at the Marriott hotel. $4,000 - $6,000
