Born Cassandra Peterson, this raven-wigged maven drew the infamous name Elvira from a coffee can just before premiering as host of Movie Macabre. The rest is horror-show history. The term "boob tube" was never more apropos than when the curvaceous Cassandra flaunted her monstrous cleavage for late-night TV. Viewers sat through schlocky spookers in hope of catching a glimpse of her beaming bosom. Cassandra's cazoongas were larger than life on the silver screen in Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (1988). Most recently, she flaunted her peaks and valleys in Elvira's Haunted Hills (2001). As a young featured creature of the night, Cassie gave a performance to rival Bettie Page as an old-fashioned stripper in The Working Girls (1973).
