"Good Night, Whatever You Are"

John Zacherle died, having just turned 98, on Thursday, October 27, a few days short of Halloween, a holiday he essentially personified.

First as Roland out of Philadelphia, and more famously as Zacherley, the Cool Ghoul, in New York, he was a pioneering TV Horror Host. He was among those who introduced the Universal Classics to the first generation of Monster Kids. He was a revelator and, through the years, he remained a touchstone, a direct link back to one’s own adolescence and our love of monsters. For those of us who never had the privilege of seeing him as a TV Host, we learned about him from Famous Monsters magazine and his horror-themed novelty records. Right to the end, he was proud of his accomplishments and still wore his long undertaker’s coat to convention appearances.

Zacherle had not seen the 1931 FRANKENSTEIN until he introduced the film on his show. He would go on to present most of the Universal Frankensteins over the years, and he would go on to a cameo as a TV weatherman in a Frankenstein film, Frank Henenlotter’ FRANKENHOOKER (1990).

To understand Zacherley’s impact and enduring importance, I urge you to read David Colton’s touching tribute on the Classic Horror Film Board.

See Zacherley in action on YouTube

Here is an obituary from The New York Times.

A very talented man, in Radio as well as TV. And a gracious, gentle gem of a man as well - as just about anyone blessed to have met him will testify.

Rest to him, after a good, long life.

Great Assignment Help said...

Taking help for doing the assignments is the most common thing which students do. Students, who are not able to create the assignment on their own, take professionals to support for creating the assignment, this process is known as assignment help. A professional is an experienced person who knows every component of that topic and subject deeply.

Wow, I am getting myself one copy. I’ll read it when I have time – which won’t be on a weekend because for me weekends are busier than weekdays – as you can expect from someone who provides college assignment help. I receive more projects on weekends than during the week. Anyway, I will read it whenever I have time – who cares whether it’s a weekend or a weekday?

The online assignment help also guarantees you timely submission, as their experts have the experience of completing the tasks in quick time. Also, the online assignment help offers to make changes while writing the assignment, which you may not find with the offline assignment help. Customer care support is another advantage you get in the case of online assignment help, and they also allow you to connect with your assignment expert directly. You can simply ask, give me the contact details of my assignment expert to connect with them. And the major difference is the cost that you will pay for your assignment. Online assignment help charges very less compared to offline assignment help. And this concludes that it is better to prefer online over offline to get the best service.
