Black Cat

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! I thought these photographs from the black cat casting call for Tales of Terror (1962) were pretty amazing. What a fantastic scene this was!! Also, I adore Peter Lorre and Vincent Price–they are quintessential classic spooksters.

I love Halloween and had A LOT of fun posts planned for this week, but, as some of you know, I’m in New York just trying to get through the hurricane and its aftermath. It’s been pretty scary and exhausting, but I’m feeling really lucky considering the state of the city and surrounding areas. Thanks so much for the moral support on Facebook and Twitter. I was alone through the entire storm and it really has helped. xx

I hope you and your loved ones are all safe and well. Please consider donating to the Red Cross relief efforts–it really is as bad or worse than it looks on TV. So many people’s lives have been turned upside down and they need the help.

    I’m just so glad you’re ok! I can’t believe what this storm has done. It’s just so scary to think what nature can do…

    Happy Halloween to you. I really really love the photos. I wish ladies dressed like that every day, minus walking cats (but that’s rather hilarious).

    I glad that you made it through the storm safely. I live in Philadelphia so I weathered the storm with you. Alone too. Although I suffered very little damage, my heart goes out to the others who are still suffering!

    PS: I love these photos!
