The episode about the monsters
14 January 2007 | by vogerSee all my reviews

I distinctly remember one episode of "Hollywood and the Stars" was about horror movies. I was 5 years old and I loved monsters, but I hadn't seen very many horror movies. Even though I was so young, I still remember the first thing Joseph Cottten said: "You may want to put the kids to bed early tonight." I begged my parents to let me watch it, and they reluctantly allowed it. The episode referred to Lon Chaney Jr., but in my childish mind, I interpreted it as if they were talking about a monster, not an actor, named "Junior." It scared the heck out of me! This monster named Junior! I think they showed footage from "Man-Made Monster." It took decades before I realized they must have been talking about Chaney Jr. I remember the theme song and everything. I would kill to see that episode again. Does anyone remember it?
