Sinister Cinema: Beverly Garland, The Alligator People

In preparation for Halloween, Brian Leno needs to get in the mood by showcasing some signatures from his vault: 

The signed card of Beverly Garland being mishandled in The Alligator People (1959) is a real keeper for me.

I remember watching this movie at a drive-in theater and loved the hell out of it.

Bruce Bennett and Lon Chaney were co-stars and I have fond memories of Chaney holding up a hook where his hand had once been, spitting out “Gators did this to me!”

Years ago I wrote Garland and asked for an autograph, and she was gracious enough to send back three or four signed items. Beautiful and a class act, hard to find combination.
