Part 2 in my series of paying homage to the TV Horror Hosts of years past.
Did you know, the first TV Horror Host was Maila Numi aka Vampira in 1954. Her amazing hourglass figure was more pronounces because she had her lower ribs removed. Her show was cancelled after a year because she wanted to get paid and the TV station (KABC) countered with a demand that they owned the rights to the character.
Vampira probably would have been forgotten if not for Ed Wood and his famous Plan 9 From Outer Space.
