As Ed Wood moved away from making retched movies and more into pornograph, Paul Muni took a job as a security guard at Paramount Studios to make ends meet. After a fateful encounter with director Joe Dante–who foolishly referred to Paul as “a cult star” entirely because of his involvement with ED Wood—promptly quit his job, took his life savings and began to create the Kelton the Cop Fan Club in preparation for his ascent into superstardom which was, according to Paul, just around the corner. It is to Paul’s credit that he did in one way or another live off that reflected glory for the rest of his life, literally since he was preparing for an interview just hours before he died at the age of 82.
