TV Guide Ad: `Elvira Meets The Fall Guy’ (1984)

Halloween TV Guide Elvira 1984

It’s not false advertising, believe it or not. Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) played herself in a Fall Guy episode called “October the 31st,” which premiered on Halloween, 1984. From what I remember, she and Colt are doing a Halloween special in a haunted mansion owned by a demented old man played by John Carradine. Will they survive the night?

Speaking of Carradine, I just watched him ham it up in another winner called Billy the Kid vs. Dracula (1966). Think you know the best way to knock down a vampire? Think again.

    That works on normal people as well.

    They used to do this on the George Reeves Superman show: the gangsters would unload pistols into Superman and he’d stand there, defiant. They’d throw their emptied guns at Supes, and he’d duck.

    If only poor Dracula had ducked…

    I’ll always be a sucker for Elvira…

    And what if that pistol was silver plated? Whatever. Important thing here is that the movie’s better than “Jessie James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter” – Same director, same writer… 73% more boring (by volume).
