Maila Nurmi talks about her creation of the Vampira character and her career.
TIME Magazine Obit. 1/28/2008: "Before Elvira, before Morticia Addams, there was Maila Nurmi, the pioneering queen of sexy, spooky goth. She developed a following as Vampira, host of a short lived namesake weekly 1954 TV show in which she introduced horror movies. Nurmi, who had a cameo in the classic Ed Wood film Plan 9 from Outer Space, faded from view, earning money by selling handmade jewelry. In 1989 she lost a $10 million lawsuit alleging that actress Cassandra Peterson, appearing as Elvira, had pirated her character. Nurmi was 85."
