A BRIEF LOOK BACK AT LARRY VINCENT
I've been having a flood of youthful memories lately.
Watching FRIGHT NIGHT, and MONSTER RALLY, with Larry Vincent - aka Sinister Seymour - was a ton o'fun.

His sense of humor was perfect for hosting a show like FRIGHT NIGHT.
I was also very happy when I would spot him in movies and tv shows.

I have NOT been able to find any books about Mr. Vincent. Nor have I been able to track down any extensive magazine articles.
However, there is a book about southern California movie hosts.
The book is called CREATURES OF THE NIGHT THAT WE LOVED SO WELL: TV HORROR HOSTS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.
AUTHOR - Jim Fetters
PUBLISHER - SABRE EBOOKS
ISBN ( 978-0615574929 )
Unfortunately, this book appears to be OUT-OF-PRINT.
I'm NOT going to pay a minimum of twenty-five dollars for a USED book.
As for electronic "books", I will NEVER pay for glorified emails!
