A classical violinist and acclaimed singer, Gisele MacKenzie, as other distinguished talents before her, lent her vocal cords to the horror universe for a low budget take on Edgar Allen Poe’s The Premature Burial, 1972’s One Minute Before Death.
Well known as a continent hopping entertainer with a true sense of class, MacKenzie also showed a humorous side by recording such novelty numbers as Oh Pain! Oh Agony! Know What I Mean, Jelly Bean?
MacKenzie, who made latter day appearances on such television programs as The Young and the Restless – where she temporarily took over as Katherine Chancellor for Jeanne Cooper – and Murder, She Wrote, earned her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame before her passing of colon cancer at the age of 76 in 2003. It was truly a deserving tribute for such a well rounded talent.
Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
