Take it Out in Trade is a 1970 softcore pornographic comedy film[1] directed by Ed Wood, who specialized in campy, low-budget exploitation and genre films.[2]

Wood was always in a humble financial state, and often had to take out loans in order to make his films. Many of his films are exploitation genres in hopes of making a cheap buck. The film centers around a couple searching for their daughter and the discovery that she now resides in a harem. Many softcore sex scenes occur throughout the film, including incest.

No copies of the film have been released or made public since it's original theatrical run, even after Wood's films achieved their cult status. However, three reels of outtakes, behind the scenes footage, and deleted scenes were rediscovered in 1995 and released on VHS from Something Weird Video and have since been uploaded online.

In 2014, a full 80-minute print of the film was publicly exhibited at the Anthology Film Archives in New York City.[3] The film is no longer considered lost, but the film has still not been released to the public.


Two minutes of outtake footage.
