, Silver Spring, MD Count Gore De Vol 40th Anniversary Celebration!
Re-Presenting the Original Creature Feature:HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN
(1944) B&WIn person: Count Gore De Vol
In the spirit of the original broadcasts, this special, one-time-only celebration of an entertainment pioneer will feature the Count hosting on stage, with interactive intermissions and lots of ghoulish good fun and surprises in store.
TV personality Dick Dyszel introduced his alter ego Count Gore De Vol on Channel 20's CREATURE FEATURE 40 years ago on February 3, 1973
. Dyszel, who already hosted local children's programming as Bozo the Clown and Captain 20, created the Count and for his debut, presented 1944's HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN, a "monster rally" ensemble piece featuring, not only the Frankenstein monster (Glenn Strange), but Dracula (John Carradine) and the Wolf Man (Lon Chaney, Jr.), with a new mad scientist (perplexingly, the original FRANKENSTEIN star Boris Karloff) and his hunchback assistant (J. Carrol Naish) stirring up trouble. So-bad-it's-good fun. AFI Silver Theatre
