The Original Horror Hostess and Morticia: Maila Nurmi


Greeting my fellow Wierdlings! It's been dreadfully quiet lately! Are you all dead? Why didn't you invite me?

Anyhow I watched a most interesting documentary about Maila Nurmi. One of the fascinating mentions was that in 1953 she based her 'Vampira' movie career and Horror Hostess character on the New Yorker cartoons of Charles Addams namely Morticia Addams. I have included the Wikipedia link but there is so much more and would encourage anyone interested in Horror History to Google a few of her images and videos. R.I.P. Malia.
