Dead Man’s Curve is an off the hook hot rod fun-filled event where you can expect: celebrities, the most amazing cars, the best in rockabilly, old friends, drinking — in other words, a lot of fun!
My husband and I started going to the Dead Man’s Curve parties a few years ago and try not to miss them. We got to this one rather late, as it was in Mahwah, an hour drive from our home, and I was sad that we missed The Tarrantinos perform, but we had a blast regardless!
It was a thrill meeting Pat Priest, a 1960s beauty queen who was in the Elvis movie, “Easy Come, Easy Go.” She is best known as the second “Marilyn” on The Munsters!
This woman was such a doll, the salt of the earth. She was so happy to meet her fans and had a very strong, impressive handshake (and I told her so!)
We also met Butch Patrick (“Eddie Munster”) for the second time. He was super and gave us a free autographed photo of himself. Very nice guy. Both times we met Butch, he made a Gilligan’s Island reference when learning my name is “Maryanne.” I confessed, both times, that I was a Ginger wannabe.
He was so cute hanging around with Pat Priest, as if he is still her TV little brother! Which makes you realize it’s so sad that Pat Priest and Butch Patrick are the only Munsters cast members that are alive. (RIP: Fred Gwynne, Yvonne De Carlo and Al Lewis). That legendary television show, on a steady rotation in our home!
Enjoy the rest of the photos! We look forward to the next event in March 2013!
