Happy Birthday to The Amazing Criswell!


Happy birthday to The Amazing Criswell (1907-1982)!!

Best known to genre fans for his roles in Ed Wood's classic films Night of the Ghouls (1959), Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959) and Orgy of the Dead (1965), he was also very well known for his bizarre and outlandish predictions of the future.

Plus, he had a pretty nifty Halloween novelty hit that I love.


Happy birthday to a one of a kind!

  1. I seriously need my eyes checked. At first glance I thought I wrote the Amazing Kreskin but at least the turntable wasn't an optical delusion. ;)

  2. Yep, that ranks right up there with Telly Savalas' stirring rendition of "If"
