I was a TV Horror Show Host - Museum on Main

I was a TV Horror Show Host - Museum on Main
A lecture, “I Was A TV Horror Show Host,” by former KTVU-TV Creature Features host, John Stanley, will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday, September 18, at the Lynnewood United Methodist Church, 4444 Black Ave., Pleasanton. The lecture is presented by Pleasanton’s Museum On Main Street. Admission is $5 for members; $10 for non-members. Memberships will be available that night for purchase. No reservations necessary. Information 925-462-2766. The lecture sponsors are Chris and Heather Rizzoli.

John Stanley is best known in the San Francisco-Bay Area for serving as the host of “Creature Features” for six years (1979-84) at KTVU Channel 2 in Oakland . One of the most popular TV series of its time, Stanley introduced horror and science-fiction movies by the dozens and also introduced to his viewers some of the most important writers, producers and directors of the genres which he was specializing in.

During and after the series he authored six editions in “The Creature Features Movie Guide” series, which still remains one of the most comprehensive histories of its kind.

The year 2007 saw the coming of “I Was A TV Horror Host,” an autobiographical account of his experiences at Channel 2 and a recounting of his meetings with such celebrities as Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, Ray Bradbury, Robert Bloch, Anthony Perkins, Lucille Ball and countless others, told with 559 photographs. The book was endorsed by such notables as Elvira, Joe Bob Briggs, producer Roger Corman and actor Tom Hanks, who grew up in the Bay Area watching the series.

Many still remember Stanley as an entertainment writer for the San Francisco Chronicle for 33 years. His reviews and interviews appeared in the "Pink Section" of the Sunday Chronicle. Stanley came to specialize in celebrity interviews. Mae West, Jimmy Stewart, Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Mitchum were among those he profiled during his long reign at the Chronicle. He reviewed countless motion pictures during those years, having developed a reputation for being an expert in the field of mystery, horror and war movies.

Stanley also had a writing career outside the Chronicle. He authored two novelty books, “The Great Comics Game,” (1966) published by Price-Stern-Sloan and “The Movie Monster Game,” (Troubador, 1974 before breaking into the fiction field.

He is most proud of his first novel, World War III, published in 1976 by Avon about American combat forces fighting a war in China in the not-so-distant future. It was followed by the Avon-published novelization of “Viva Knievel,” the 1977 feature film starring Evel Knievel. He also co-authored “The Dark Side,” a private eye novel nominated for the coveted Edgar Award.

Hollywood in Pleasanton
Lights. Camera. Action. Did you know that Pleasanton was a site for making Hollywood films from 1910 to 1943? To highlight those film-making days, Pleasanton's Museum on Main will hold a "Hollywood in Pleasanton" downtown event. More than 36 movies were made in Pleasanton, and ticket holders will go on a movie walk to the many different venues in downtown Pleasanton and to meet the local residents who are recreating film scenes and events.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children under 12 and are available at the following locations in Pleasanton, CA: The Museum on Main, 603 Main Street; Towne Center Books, 555 Main Street; Worthington Gallery, 739 Main Street; and Clover Creek, 670 Main Street. Guests will receive a detailed tour booklet for this self-guided tour.

  • "Hollywood in Pleasanton" will take place during the Art and Heritage Festival. Here's what's in store:
    The 'filming' of the 1917 movie "Tom Sawyer," starring Jack Pickford, is an adventure with comedy and drama, and will take place downtown.
  • The 1943 movie, "It Ain't Hay," starring comedians Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, will have a red-carpet movie premiere with Pleasanton residents playing the leading roles.
  • The 1921 comedy "Peck's Bad Boy," starring Jackie Coogan will recreate scenes starring locals in a special event at Towne Center Books.
  • "Woman of the World," a 1925 love story and drama starring Pola Negri, a European-born actress, will be at The Rose Hotel.
  • The cast of the drama "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm," starring Mary Pickford, will provide a 'press tour' of this 1917 favorite.
  • See a rehearsal of the 1919 film, "Eyes of Youth" with the heartthrob Rudolph Valentino, a love story of duty and ambition.
  • "Staging a Bank Robbery" will be at Worthington Art Gallery, and the villains were never caught. Music for the event will be provided by pianist Bonnie Green.

A Different View Art Exhibit
Park District Invites Bay Area Artists to Kick Off 75th Anniversary
with Creative Landscape Art Exhibition at the Bankhead Theater

Asking specifically for creative, unusual, and different responses to the landscape--in other words, anything but the norm--the East Bay Regional Park District is teaming up with the Bankhead Theater in Livermore to begin a traveling exhibition of artworks based on any of the East Bay Regional Parks, and are putting out an Open Call to all artists living within 50 miles of the San Francisco Bay Area. Called, "A Different View: A New Take on our Regional Parks," the exhibition will act as the starting point for a host of 75th Anniversary activities for the Park District, and select works from the exhibit will travel to other East Bay exhibition sites as the celebration continues throughout 2009 (sites to be announced). Twelve works will be selected for the district's popular 2009 calendar, a piece with widespread distribution throughout the East Bay.

"A Different View" will run at the Bankhead Theater, 2400 First Street, Livermore, CA, from September 17 through October 30, during the theater’s busiest time of the year as well as exposing the works to art lovers that crowd the streets during ArtWalk 2008. A reception (reservations required at 925-373-6800) is planned for September 24.

Artist submissions are due August 15, and the prospectus is available by e-mailing bothwell@livermoreperformingarts.org with "A Different View" in the subject line. The fee of $15 for three works will cover the cost of the exhibition and awards. Any proceeds from the exhibition will help support the Bothwell Arts Center, a multi-arts facility that provides affordable space to over 30 artists and arts groups. The Bankhead Theater and the Bothwell are projects of the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, committed to community enrichment.

The East Bay Regional Park District operates 65 well-loved parks within the greater East Bay, covering over 98,000 acres and more than 1,150 miles of trails, helping to ensure preservation of the natural beauty of the Bay Area, wildlife habitat, and rare and endangered species.

Meet the artists and enjoy live jazz, light hors d’oeuvres, and Livermore Valley wines from Fenestra Winery, Livermore Valley Cellars, Page Mill Winery, The Steven Kent Winery, and Wood Family Vineyards.

Nostalgia Day Car Show
For eighteen years the club has held Nostalgia Day Car Show on the streets of downtown Livermore, where the show has grown to a display of over 700 muscle cars, street rods, custom and classic cars and draws over 5000 spectators. Our motto has always been "Cruisers Against Drugs", and our annual Nostalgia Day Car Show has allowed us to prove that we mean it. To date, this fundraiser has enabled us to donate over $180,000 for local organizations that promote the Tri-Valley youth, help strengthen their families and help keep kids off drugs.

The Altamont Cruisers along with our 2008 Nostalgia Day Sponsors are sure to put on another fun car show in beautiful Downtown Livermore, September 28, 2008 from 9 AM to 4 PM. The show is FREE to all of the spectators, and there are food booths and vendors of every type.
See photos from the 2003 show.
