Sammy Petrillo

I saw on Mark Evanier's blog that Sammy Petrillo has passed away. I'm a fan of Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorillia, and I even own the DVD. A classic bad movie that everybody should see.

    "Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!"

    Surely Sammy's most famous line.

    Actually he did an uncanny Jerry Lewis impersonation.

  2. Everyone in those days did a Jerry Lewis impression, but Sammy's was frightningly good.

  3. Bill, after reading your mention, I actually got out my copy of BELA/GORILLA and watched it again. Thanks, Bill. Thanks a lot.

    p.s. My wife wanted to know why anyone's still keeping track of Samy Petrillo. I guess women just don't understand....
