The Amazing Criswell 1907-1982- Jeron Criswell Konig (later, Jeron Criswell King, 1907-1982), the first celebrity psychic. Raised in a family of morticians, after some early work in radio and newspapers, in 1953 he began featuring predictions of the future in local ads for “Criswell Family Vitamins” on KLAC TV (Los Angeles). The spots were so popular the station gave him his own TV show called Criswell Predicts, which ran from 1953 through 1961. The show became his springboard for local fame, and he became good friends with people like Liberace, Korla Pandit, and Mae West, who wrote and sang a song about him called “Criswell Predicts” on her 1955 album The Fabulous Mae West. Criswell’s fame was still local when notorious grade z director Ed Wood tapped him to narrate Plan 9 from Outer Space in 1956, where he fit tight into a cast that also included Tor Johnson, fellow local celebrity Vampira, and former “A list” movie stars Bela Lugosi and Lyle Talbot. The “Criswell Predicts” formatting ...

George “The Animal” Steele: Ed Wood Both of them got started in the wrestling ring as heels (bad guys), equipped with not only the ability to survive between the ropes, but a physical look that opponents and fans wouldn’t soon forget. Both of them eventually stepped before cameras and onto screens of slightly larger sizes. And today, long after their respective careers have ended, both still are, and always will be, remembered by fans of film and the mat, though sadly, only one is still around to enjoy it. In hindsight, it seems the epitome of illogic that anyone but George “The Animal” Steele could become Tor Johnson in the underrated Ed Wood. Johnson first stepped into the national spotlight in the 1920s and 30s, and made it into movies shortly thereafter, often playing wrestlers. But it was his ghoulish turn as detective-turned-zombie Daniel Clay in the horrifyingly legendary Plan 9 From Outer Space that pushed him higher than ever before, and has kept him there, four decades after his 1971 p ...

05-12-14 ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY 1938: “The Adventures of Robin Hood” starring Errol Flynn, Basil Rathbone, Olivia DeHaviland, Claude Rains and Eugene Paulette premiered. The swashbuckling film then cost a whopping $2 million dollars to make! The light brown horse Maid Marion rode in the movie was later bought by singing cowboy Roy Rogers and renamed Trigger. 1962: First day shooting on Frederico Fellini’s film ‘8 ½’. When screened for American Producer Joe Levine, Levine took the cigar from his mouth and growled-” Frederico, what da *** did that movie mean? ” Fellini shrugged –“I dunno”. 1971: Tor Johnson died of a heart attack at age 68. Swedish wrestler turned actor Tor’s preferred role was the bald eyeless zombie in classics like Plan Nine from Outer Space and Bride of the Monster. 1977: A small Westchester radio station WENW hired a thin, gawky, college grad as a DJ- Howard Stern. US radio would never be the same.

He is, in fact, credited as original angel, using that gimmick before several who came after him, including the legendary "Swedish Angel", Tor Johnson

You folks are lovely, and I hope you know that the things you do make a difference, to me at least. But that's enough, as it is far too maudlin already, though I mean every word.

UPDATE (edited post with corrected info!): Donald Post (March 14, 1902 – November 17, 1979), dubbed by many as The Godfather of Halloween, created and sold some of the first latex masks, which remain popular today. In the 1960s and 1970s, Post made masks of such actors as Tor Johnson and Captain Kirk, the latter of which was slightly altered for the 1978 film, Halloween, into the infamous Michael Myers mask. Don Post Studios was owned by the Paper Magic Group (PMG) until 2012 when it was sold. The Planet of the Apes masks were sculpted in 1974 and spring of 1975, and appeared in the 1975 and 1976 catalogs. There were 4 masks to choose from: Gorilla Warrior Dr Zaius Cornelius Zira There was a Deluxe version and an economy version, both sculpted by Bill Malone, based on the original appliances used in the movies. Some of these deluxe masks were used in the Planet of the Apes TV series in 1975, for Apes crowd scenes. The deluxe masks had mohair, and the teeth came separate from the mask and were glued on . ...
Near the end of Lugosi's life. Probably during the time of his last completed film The Black Sleep. Tor Johnson and John Carradine were in that and did a brief promotional tour. Lugosi was supposed to have lines in it but he was very frail and sick so they made his character a mute.

Watched the 1957 Republic Pictures production of "The Unearthly". It's about a mad scientist who creates a 17th gland that when put into the neck of a person will make them immortal. Except the gland also makes the patients all look like part time actor full time wrestler Tor Johnson (who also plays Lobo in the film And played Lobo in "Night Of The Ghouls"). Myron Healy ( Who was in every western ever made where the budget was about the same as bus fare) plays an accused murderer who is *** bent on stopping the mad scientist before he too is turned into Tor. The girl from the "Crawling Hand" is in there too but I'm not sure why. . . .And John Carradine ( Father of Kung Fu, The pedophile from "Pretty Baby", and a Nerd) is the mad scientist. The Unearthly is a good time. .

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Edward D. Wood Jr. The BEST World's Worst Director. At the age of about eight as I lay huddled under a comforter on the couch watching an ailing Bela Lugosi star in "Bride of the Monster" (1955) at my grandmothers home in Brooklyn, I was frightened. This was my first Ed Wood Jr. movie and I liked it. Is Ed the Orson Welles (his idol) of Shlock? In a sense yes, but his films were being produced for as low as $20,000 and today we have unwatchable crap made for multi-millions. Jim Morton writes: "Eccentric and individualistic, Edward D. Wood, Jr. was a man born to film. Lesser men, if forced to make movies under the conditions Wood faced, would have thrown up their hands in defeat." Eddie also had a very interesting circle of friends that he often cast in many of his films that today are considered cult figures including Bela Lugosi, Tor Johnson, Criswell, Vampira (Maila Nurmi), Paul Marco and Steve Reeves. Ed's idol Orson Welles made "Citizen Kane" (1941), voted the best film of all time and ...
What do you get when you combine Basil Rathbone, Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr., John Carradine and Tor Johnson in a single spookfest? Well, perhaps less than you might have hoped, but still not a bad little outing. The film really belongs to our Mr. Rathbone, who dominates the story with his suavely sinister singleminded dedication to his work. Poor Bela, who might have at one time played that role, is here as his mute servant in what, at age 74, would be his last film role. (Though Bela Lugosi would "appear" a few years after his death in Ed Wood Jr.'s PLAN 9 FROM Outer Space, that footage had been shot sometime prior to BLACK SLEEP.) Still, our dear Mr. Lugosi fares better than his old colleagues, all of whom are, alas! victims of Basil's experimentations. Brilliant surgeon Dr. Cadman has learned the secret of "The Black Sleep" and uses it in his brain research, all in a quest to restore his comatose bride--but his experiments have dire consequences...

Started watching some classic horror movies tonight. I just watched 'The Black Sleep' (1956). It was Bela Lugosi's last movie (that he knew he was making, not just the footage shot of him that ended up in Plan 9.) It also starred Basil Rathbone, Lon Chaney Jr., John Carradine, and Tor Johnson. Not bad for a bunch of actors past their prime doing a mad scientist movie.
