We Have A Winner!
Congratulations to BECKY LeJEUNE, who won the autographed copy (but not a trip to NJ, because we never really offered that) of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEED! Becky correctly identified the inspirations for the following character names in the book:
Alison KERBY (Kerby is the last name of the couple who die in a car crash and come back to haunt the title character in TOPPER, both the 1937 film with Cary Grant and Constance Bennett, and the 1952 TV series with Leo G. Carroll)
MAXIE MALONE (Maxie was a 1920s flapper and aspiring actress whose spirit took over the body of Glenn Close in the 1985 film MAXIE)
PHYLLIS COATES (Ms. Coates was the first actress to play Lois Lane opposite George Reeves as Superman, first in the pilot "Superman And The Mole Men." She was replaced by Noel Neill in the TV series)
Congratulations, Becky! The autographed book is on its way!
