    He’s COUNT YORGA. He’s only resting…RIP Mr. Quarry, for now.

    Another star goes dark in the constellation MST3K. I have a growing fondness for the contributions for all the actors, big and small, that lit up the silver screen. What a great kindness presented here to be remembered.

    I may not have seen “Count Yorga” (and I feel a bit guilty about it), but I’ve seen more Fred Olen Ray films than any one man should, so this news rather saddens me, nonetheless.

    Quarry was one of my favorite actors and his YORGA films were highlights of my childhood growing up. He brought a seriousness to his roles the equivalent of Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. It’s a shame he didn’t get the chance to do more horror movies in the 1970’s. Those few genre films he did, he did with a lot of class and reverence.

    I pull out the Count Yorga/Return of Count Yorga DVD about once a year and watch them. He seems to have had a full life. I saw him speak once at a convention. He had a robust sense of humor and seemed to be having a grand old time. R.I.P. Mr. Quarry. May you rest with all your hot vampire babes.

    He also did another vampire movie called “Deathmaster”. He played a Charles Manson-ish vampire complete with a beard and long hair wig!

    D’oh! It was mentioned! Mybad! :oops: He also did the second “Doctor Phibes” movie.
