Take It Out in Trade: The Outtakes is a compilation film of bloopers, alternate takes, behind-the-scenes footage, and deleted scenes from the 1970 soft-core pornographic film, Take It Out in Trade, directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr. The footage is completely silent with an instrumental musical score.
Take It Out in Trade was written and directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr. during his long downward spiral into alcoholism and pornography. Although the film is sometimes incorrectly described as a lost film, apparently copies do exist. Rudolph Grey, the author of Wood biography Nightmare of Ecstasy (1992), claims he located a print during research for his book. However, it has never been made commercially available on home video.
Three cans of outtake footage of Take It Out in Trade were found in the projection booth of a Santa Monica movie theatre and released on video by Something Weird Video in 1995. To date, this remains the only commercial release of any footage of Take It Out in Trade.
