Shock Theatre Chicago Style – Donald F. Glut
From December 1957 through October 1959, Chicago TV viewers were held in thrall by “Marvin,” the ghoulishly hilarious host of WBKB-TV’s late-night horror film series Shock Theatre. Marvin and his lady friend “Dear” (her face ever hidden from the camera) introduced thousands of Chicagoland youngsters to such classic Universal chillers as Frankenstein, Dracula and The Wolf Man. This history of Shock Theatre focuses on the series and its creator, Marvin himself–in real life, the multi-talented Terry Bennett, whose wife Joy played “Dear.” Terry’s son Kerry Bennett provides an affectionate foreword, while celebrated horror host Count Gore De Vol (Dick Dyszel) supplies the afterword. Included are dozens of photos and vintage advertisement reproductions, as well as two appendices featuring a resume of Terry Bennett’s career and a list of films telecast during his two-year Shock Theatre run.
