    I think #3 is Plan 9 From Outerspace.

    The theme is obviously (?) films with numbers in the title, but I have no idea about #2 - not a clear enough picture.

    Yep it's an Ed Wood film. I heard that it was going to be remade

    Are you sure...it doesn't look like him at all. If it is it has to be from his early early days.

    Close enuff NickSticks. The third movie title - correctly identified by Coragus - is 'Plan 9 from Outer Space'. And yes, Plan 9 was an Ed Wood flick.

    Is the common theme that they are all set in Los Angeles?

    They are, aren't they...but I was thinking more along the lines that all three films have attracted 'cult' followings over the years.
