Elvira Mistress of the Dark ~~ Cassandra Peterson (born September 17, 1951) is an American actress best known for her on-screen horror hostess character Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. She gained fame on Los Angeles television station KHJ wearing a black, gothic, cleavage-enhancing gown as host of Movie Macabre, a weekly horror movie presentation. Her wickedly vampish appearance is offset by her comical character, quirky and quick-witted personality, and Valley girl-type speech.

Elvira... I think she'll be in a nice silver frame on a bedside table. When guests go in to add their coats to the pile, she'll be a nice sight.

I've got a picture of Jean Gamboa dressed like Elvira...and it always reminds me of Bart - sitting on the tailgate of a truck with that wig on...cause they were gonna play at a bar that the military had been banned from - and Jean gave it to him to wear that night. He sure didn't wanna go in!!

~Elvira ~ Vintage - In 1981, Cassandra Peterson, born Sept. 18, 1951, became a weekend TV Vampira horror-host of 'Elvira's Movie Macabe'. She was a quick-witted, Valley-girl-type character named Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. With heavily applied pancake-horror make-up & a towering black beehive wig to conceal her flame-red hair, Elvira wore a tight-fitting, low-cut black gown which showed ample cleavage. At the closing of each show, Elvira wished her audience "Unpleasant dreams"!
