Let’s talk about Dr. Pall Bearer:
In the midwest, you had Svengoolie, but in the Trampa, you had Dr. Pall Bearer.
I was around six when I saw him for the first time on Channel 44, which was the kickass UHF station that would show all the old Woody Woodpecker, Mork & Mindy and (much later on) Simpsons reruns.
But on Saturday afternoon, you’d tune into Dr. Pall Bearer’s Horrible Old Movie, which would run from Vincent Price films, to Abbott & Costello meet Frankenstein & the Mummy, to weird ass shit like ‘The Car’.
I thought he was pretty cool when I was little, and since my folks were old fashioned midwestern folks & really didn’t dig scary films, it was my first experience with the creeps. When he’d do a PA, the Channel 44 folks had him drive up in a hearse in full funeral attire & sell it. Preternaturally creepy, he had either a glass or lazy eye (I’m pretty sure the eye was collecting unemployment), and a weird deep croak of a voice that can only be accomplished by sucking down two cartons of Marlboro Reds a day, and that’s ultimately what did him in. But I liked him, and he was my gateway to weird films, and I still think about that.
