RIP Conrad Brooks

There isn’t any official obituary yet, but social media is buzzing with news of the death of actor and Ed Wood buddy Conrad Brooks. He was 86.
Brooks played both a policeman and a suspect in the movie in episode 423- BRIDE OF THE MONSTER, a knife-fighter in the movie in episode 613- THE SINISTER URGE and a man in overalls in the movie in episode 621- THE BEAST OF YUCCA FLATS.

Brooks did an interview on Rhino’s “The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection, Vol. 9.”

Here’s an early report.

Thanks to Paul for the heads up.

    Conrad Brooks was also in RiffTrax’s Rollergator (along with Joe Estevez), which makes Ed Wood’s films look like Casablanca by comparison. Say what you will, but Connie Brooks definitely appeared in movies. Yup.

    Edit: Oh! And Plan 9, too, of course.

    Damn, I had always hoped I’d get to meet him. I could be wrong, but I think he was the last survivor of the Ed Wood films.

    According to IMDB, Carl Anthony (who played Johnny Ryde in The Sinister Urge, and Patrolman Larry in Plan 9) is still alive.

    And of course Ed Wood was directing films as late as 1974, but that’s well beyond anything of his that MST/RT/CT/FC ever covered.

    Had the pleasure of meeting him a few times on the horror convention circuits and he had my number from Hollywood so we would talk occasionally. Yes he had some stories to tell but we mostly talked about the next gig. He is on his way to a great gig now.

    Loved his interview on the Sinister Urge disk. It sounded like he really enjoyed what he did.

    Another member of the extended Mst3k to say goodbye to.

    Rest in Peace dear sir.
