Duke Moore was a would-be actor and friend of writer-director-producer Edward D. Wood, Jr., who spent his whole screen career in movies written or directed by Wood, starting with the 1948 western Crossroads of Laredo. Moore's biggest and most memorable role was as the police lieutenant investigating the mysterious deaths at the cemetery in Plan 9 From Outer Space, and almost more memorable than his inept line delivery are his moves with his service revolver. He played essentially the same role with a different name in Wood's next movie, Night of the Ghouls, which remained locked up in the laboratory thanks to Wood's inability to pay the fees for processing until the 1980s, almost a decade after Moore's death.
