Who is Cassandra Peterson?
     Cassandra Peterson was born on September 17, 1949 in Manhattan, Kansas. She is a busty American actress who is famous for her roles in campy horror movies. She was also critically acclaimed for her portrayal of the role Elvira, Mistress Of The Dark. Cassandra gained popularity on Los Angeles television KJH, as the hostess of the movie Macabre, a weekly program on horror movies.

        Once she graduated, she went on to become a showgirl at The Dunes, Las Vegas. She made history by getting her name in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the youngest showgirl in the history of Las Vegas. In 1971, she was able to attain a tiny role of a showgirl in the James Bond 007 movie starring Sean Connery Diamonds Are Forever.

      In early 1970, Cassandra went to Italy and became a part of the Italian Rock band I Latins Ochanats as a lead singer. She also portrayed the role of a topless dancer in the 1973 movie Working Girls and again posing the same way on the cover of the album by Tom Waits called Small Change in 1976.

We don't know how Elvira aka Cassandra Peterson will feel once her luscious chest (and other parts) are revealed to all, but we know that she parlayed a campy horror movie presenting gig on a small Los Angeles TV station into a vehicle to sell, among other things, perfume, beer, and animal rights activism. Obviously, many corporations recognize her power in the marketplace.

Elvira Cassandra Peterson
In March 1975 Cassandra Peterson appeared nude in this Playgirl magazine outer-space sex pictorial. She would eventually go on to become much more desirable and famous as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
RARE NUDE PHOTO 
ELVIRA Goes Cowboy! Yee haaa!
      Long before she became "Elvira," Cassandra Peterson was a model. Her exquisite "natural" body made her a favorite for men's magazines. This great shot (above) ran in Swank Magazine as part of a Las Vegas layout. She later appeared in Playboy as part of a couple in Hooper's "Sex in the Great Outdoors" layout in 1976.

Cassandra Peterson aka Elvira
This busty red-headed temptress drew the infamous name Elvira by random chance out of a coffee can just before premiering as host of Movie Macabre. The rest is horror-show history.
Not only does Elvira aka Cassandra Peterson throw a refreshing mix of "the unknown" and pure sensuality into our stuff-shirted culture, but she does it in a laid-back manner. And what red-blooded guy wouldn't want to "lay back" with the Mistress Of The Dark? Elvira, we salute you - you're one great lady!

Unearthed - Cassandra Peterson's original model release!
MAGIC MOMENT: Elvira with a big Johnson
Cassandra Peterson is "Elvira, Mistress Of The Dark's" real name, and for the first time ever, we open the closet door, rummage through some scary skeletons, and present this pop icon in her full, totally nude glory. Like any celeb, they're always keen on jettisoning the past's more intimate moments. Moments like when they were just starting out and appearing before the lens wearing nothing but a smile seemed like a good idea. Well, your secret's out, Ms. Peterson, and we hope that you'll consider posing once again!

Before making it big in the mainstream as "Elvira," Cassandra Peterson from Kansas made something else big as a hitchhiker in this steamy, X-rated photo layout.
    Looking for work as an actress. She paid the bills by working as a waitress, getting bit parts in movies, and doing some modeling. What had always distinguished Cassandra as much as her voluptuous figure was her sense of humor and quick wit. She became part of a hip L.A. comedy troupe called the Groundlings. Among the alumni of this group are Phil Hartman of "Saturday Night Live" and Paul Reubens, better known as Pee Wee Herman. Paul/Pee Wee remains Cassandra's very good friend. She has said of him, "The one thing that makes Paul different from Pee Wee is sex appeal. He's incredibly sexy as Paul."

Elvira, Mistress of the Dark
         Cassandra Peterson was just another struggling actress during the 1970s. In the early 1980s, as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, she put the "vamp" in vampire and introduced horror movies on a Los Angeles television station. From there she launched a career as a cleavage-rich spokeswoman for all things spooky and campy, including a syndicated TV show, a movie and a merchandising blitz that cranked out everything from perfume to pinball machines.
Cassandra Peterson    
Elvira's alter ego, Cassandra Peterson, was born in Manhattan, Kansas and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Cassandra remembers being mesmerized by Ann-Margret. "I always wanted to be a dancer, ever since I saw Ann-Margret in 'Viva Las Vegas'." Just days after graduating from high school, Cassandra fled to las Vegas where, at the age of 17, she became the youngest showgirl in Las Vegas history. 

     Cassandra's desire to emulate Ann-Margret led to an evening with the legendary Elvis Presley, who saw her perform and encouraged her to pursue a singing career. Off to Europe, Cassandra toured extensively as lead singer for an Italian rock band. Eventually settling in Rome, where she became fluent in Italian, Cassandra met renowned director, Federico Fellini, who cast her in his classic film, "Fellini's Roma".  Returning stateside, Cassandra formed her own nightclub review, "Mama's Boys", which toured the national club circuit. In the late 1970's, she joined the satiric improvisational troupe, The Groundlings, which also produced such notables as Phil Hartman, Pee Wee Herman, Jon Lovitz and Julia Sweeney. There she honed her now renowned comedic skills as both a writer and performer.

a picture of her alter ego Elvira, Mistress
Of The dark behind her
   Film and television appearances such as "Cheech And Chong's Next Movie," "Fantasy Island," "Happy Days" and "St. Elsewhere" followed, but Cassandra recalls, "I was your typical struggling actress. I went to every audition, took a million acting, dancing and singing lessons and spent years wondering where my next meal was coming from."
      It was the fall of 1981, with the birth of her character, Elvira, that it all changed. While she has since played herself in many film and television shows including "Echo Park", "Alan Quartermain" and "Pee Wee's Big Adventure," Cassandra Peterson ultimately combines her numerous talents into an intriguing persona which has not only become a Halloween icon, but a "vamp" for all seasons.
    Extra credit: Peterson is a longtime supporter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA); in a much-publicized 1991 incident, she turned down an offer to perform as an elephant trainer in the TV extravaganza Circus of the Stars.

"At least I get my little black dress cleaned once in awhile." [When asked about the fact that Monica Lewinsky liked to compare with her, 1998]



"I was your typical struggling actress. I went to every audition, took a million acting, dancing and singing lessons, and spent years wondering where my next meal was coming from."

The Hammer Horror Blu-Ray Campaign



Sign the petition to ask Warner Bros to issue their Classic Hammer Horror titles on Blu-Ray, fully restored and mastered in 1080p for maximum picture quality!

Sign here: http://diaboliquemagazine.com/sign-petition-wb-release-hammer-horror-titles-blu-ray/

Why is this important? WB’s Hammer titles represent the British company’s very best output, and for many reasons, including cultural and historical, we believe these films should be restored and released in the new digital medium without delay.

Major studios are reluctant to release most of their catalog titles on BD due to the expense of scanning and restoration, as well as limited shelf space in stores. Instead, they focus on a limited group of films that they consider big moneymakers. Our goal is to show them that there is a robust market out there that goes beyond blockbusters. Supporting this campaign is a vote for classic films in general, and for greater diversity of titles in the home video marketplace.

The importance of this campaign to cinefiles can not be overstated. That’s why Guillermo del Toro, Bob Burns, Douglas McKeown, Mark Verheiden, Shane Briant, Svengoolie, and Chad Crawford Kinkle have all signed!

Warner Bros is listening! Make your voice heard NOW!
