Three Frankestein Comics

These comics were shared by Count Craigula...appreciate him sending them in. Our crowd can relate. I sure got a chuckle out of allof them!

The other two:

 

 

Sonny Vento Wins A Rondo

This from Sonny's son, Joe Vento:

"I didn't know I had that many friends" and "I did it for the Scotch"...just some of the reaction from my dad, Sonny Vento after hearing that he had won a Lifetime Award Rondo! It was 65 years ago that Hollywood came to the NYC docks and dad just happened to be in the right place when THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS was being filmed. He was told by his boss to "just keep workin, and don't look up" and that's how he got the 3 second cameo as "the sweeping man." Dad and his other Longshoreman buddies who you see running away got paid each a bottle of 12 year old J&B Scotch.

Dad went on to have bits in ON THE WATERFRONT and along with my Mother Laura, Hitchcock's THE WRONG MAN. When I told him he had won the special award, he was so happy and was smiling the biggest smile when he thanked and blessed all the people that voted for him. Dad will be 88 this August. "The Haunted Barn" (Joe's museum and business) returns to the Bash later this month with our "Monstrous Movie Memories display and one of the special artifacts this year is Dad Longshoreman's hook that was with him that cold day in 1953 as he minded his own business as everyone's favorite prehistoric tourist came ashore!!!

All the best from Dad, and we'll see you all soon!

-Joey Vento

Note from Ron: Joey will accept the award on behalf of his father following the Monster Bash Awards on Saturday night at MONSTER BASH! Be there.
