Halloween Countdown # 4

As a kid growing up in NY we had the best TV of anywhere (is that proper english?). We had great movies on the Early Show, the Late Show, Million Dollar Movie and Chiller Theater and all of them showed a variety of horror and monster movies. We also had Zacherley (John Zacherle with an added Y) who was the best horror host of all time, not to mention funny (that laugh!) and brilliant at improvisation before, after and during the horror movies he hosted. He was one of the first people I had a crush on. I mean, who wouldn't? We ALL were mad about him. In looking for footage from those shows there wasn't a lot available, but here are some miracle of embedding clips from Youtube. It will maybe give you some insight into the mystique of  Zacherley.

And one of the most fun clips is a combination of Zacherley and 60's dance crazy teens:
