Rubin and Ed is an American independent comedy-buddy film written and directed by Trent Harris and released in 1991. It is about an eccentric, unsociable young man who is forced by his mother to make some friends before she'll return his stereo to him. He is joined on a trip through a desert by a pyramid scheme salesman, to assist in finding a location to bury a frozen cat.
Rubin and Ed was filmed in Utah in Salt Lake City, Hanksville, and Goblin Valley State Park.
At the end of the movie is Crispin Glover's interview on Late Night with David Letterman in 1987 where he came out dressed and in character as Rubin Farr. This caused much confusion to David Letterman as he, after almost being kicked in the face by Glover, walked off his own set while still on the air.
