Boni Blackstone was (is?) married to wrestling announcer Joe Pedicino( a man so rotund the Jim Cornrette used to say they built the Hubbel telescope to get pictures of the far side of Joe Pedicino's belt line!) Boni and Joe were based out of Atlanta and hosted a four hour block of wrestling programs on Saturday nights from 1984 to 1994. Joe also co-hosted Pro Wrestling This Week with legend Gordon Solie that Boni appeared as a feature reporter. When ESPN picked up the Global Wrestling Federation from Texas, for daily broadcast, Joe announced and Boni was the ringside interviewer. Same with Deep South Wrestling. This was all before Boni got a chance in the WWF. But most importantly, she was a little doll!!

Hey Dave... my name's Chuck btw...I came into wrestling when I was already a little too old, so I mostly managed, promoted and was the booker( wrote the shows!) I have been in the ring with King Kong Bundy, Jimmy Valiant and Koko B. Ware. I've ran the backroom( putting shows together, giving finishes and planning matches) on shows with Greg "The Hammer" Valentine, Jim Brunzell, The Rock and Roll Express and the Freebirds. My old partner started with Mark Calloway, who became the Undertaker, so we all had dinner together when the WWE was in town. I ran autograph signing events with Dick The Bruiser, The Crusher and Baron Von Raschke. I helped Abdullah The Butcher put on his "girdle"( certainly one of my proudest moments!) and cleared out bathrooms and held the cell phone and ciggerettes of Sensational Sherri Martel while I stood guard. I've hung out with Larry Szybsko, Bobby Heenan, Jim Cornette, Hacksaw Duggan and too many to name. My proudest achievements were running a "Night Of Legends " that reunited Midwest icons Jimmy Valiant. Yukon Moose Cholack, and promoter Bob luce for the first time in 17 years! Great fun and I also got a few mentions in Jimmy Valiant's autobiography.I am the commisioner and ring announcer for CHICAGO ALL-STAR WRESTLING and have a show this Saturday.

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
