Alas. She was so much fun to watch.

I might just watch Plan 9 again this weekend as a memorial.

Well, she was slightly before my time, but she was one of the originators of the whole late night movie horror host. Because of her and others I had a wonderful childhood watching local Shock Theater with Dr. Cadaverino and now I watch Chicago's Svengoolie.

Goodbye, Maila.
