Cassandra Peterson (Elvira) Undressed
Cassandra Peterson (born September 17, 1949) is better known for her on-screen persona "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark". She gained fame on Los Angeles television station KHJ wearing a black, gothic, cleavage-enhancing gown as host of ''Movie Macabre'', a weekly horror movie presentation. Her wicked vampish appearance was offset by her comical character, quick witted personality and most of all talking like a Valley girl.
As of 2006, Peterson has announced her intent to retire her role.
