Dick Miller, The Legend

Over the past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the fourth annual Texas Frightmare Weekend and while there were many highlights to the three-day celebration, one of my most treasured was getting the chance to meet one of my favorite talents, the quintessential character actor Dick Miller.

Here's the wonderful tribute compilation (in two parts) by Noel Gross made especially for this event. Enjoy!

Watch them here, in "scrunch-o-vision" or witness them as they were intended in their original full widescreen versions on YouTube.

Thanks to Noel and Loyd Cryer of TFW for the opportunity to meet one of my all-time heroes!
