Monster Kid Online Magazine #5

More Priceless Pics from Pittsburgh!

Finally William Smith gets his comeuppance! Over 60 years after kicking her ball onto a rooftop in GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN, little Cloestine is back with a friend to collect her apology.
A GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN reunion of sorts. The film's little bully William Smith poses with decedents of Lon Chaney Jr. and Evelyn Ankers, Paisley Adams as little Cloestine, make-up artist Ron Chamberlain and his (re)creation, the Frankenstein Monster. Where's Mike (Ygor) Thomas?

Count Gamula gets into to picture. Here Ron Chaney and Kerry Gammill make like Lon Chaney Jr. and Broderick Crawford as lovely Linda Chaney referees.
Coming full circle. Imitator meets innovator as Monster Kid's Count Gamula meets FM's Dr. Acula. The Count holds the first issue of the new Monster Bash Magazine featuring Gammill cover graphics. 45 years ago Forry Ackerman and James Warren brought a generation of monster fans together with the world's first monster fan magazine, Famous Monsters of Filmland.

They're creepy and they're kooky - The Adams Family. The family atmosphere of the Monster Bash is only natural considering the folks behind it. Bash chairman Ron "Rondo" Adams surrounded by mom Jan Adams, wife Ursula Adams, daughter Paisley Adams and their young friend John Adams (no relation). Todd Speidel and Mark Statler appeared as the Frankenstein Monster and The Wolf Man.

Ron displays the first issue of Monster Bash Magazine which was unveiled during the convention.
