Vampira and me ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When Maila Nurmi took to the TV airwaves in 1954 as the original gothic scream queen Vampira, a national craze was set off. Haughty, domineering, and an instant icon of female power and sexuality, Vampira cast her spell over other rebels and rabble-rousers of the day, including James Dean, Marlon Brando and Elvis Presley. But the woman behind the facade was both far more intricate and much more fragile than the character that made her famous, and the price of momentary glory and cult superstardom was almost unbearably high
American Scary ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
American Scary is a look at the nation's tradition of horror hosting, from Zacherley to A. Ghastlee Ghoul. Hosts of all kinds were once a staple of television, and especially local television productions. But as production demands and the availability of cheaper syndicated material changed the local TV business model, local hosts were also one of the first things to go, no matter how popular they were with the viewing public. With interviews and footage from major hosts from the 1950s to the present day, such as Zacherley, Vampira, Ghoulardi and others, along with memories from celebrities and fans who were influenced by these hosts, you'll follow this American folk art form from its glamorous beginnings, through repeated waves of popularity in the 1960s and 1970s, to its scrappy resurgence and survival in the current age of cable access and the Internet. American Scary looks to remind people how much fun local TV could be - and maybe could be again. -- Cinema Libre Studio

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
