|Way, way, back
in the 1960's, way before Elvira, a favourite amongst
Australian students was Deadly
, the TV
schlock horror host. Late on Friday nights, the atrocious
old sci-fi and horror films became compulsory viewing,
solely because of the gothic master of ceremonies.
Australian TV networking was so loose in the 60s that the role of Deadly Earnest was played by different actors in different cities.
The first version of Deadly was in 1961 on TVW-7 Perth, played by Roland Barnes (left).
Below is a menu for the Deadly in your area.
|IAN BANNERMAN played the the role of
Deadly Earnest on TEN-10, as the "Dead-Pan Ghoulie".
ADELAIDE - PERTH
|SHANE PORTEUS brought Deadly Earnest
to the tropics.
Many thanks to TV Historian Chris Keating for all his input.
