1962 ROUTE 66: Lizard's Leg & Owlet's Wing

As first broadcast on October 26th, 1962, here's the famous Halloween episode of ROUTE 66, complete with original network commercials, a rare slice of classic television just as it was seen a half-century ago. Featuring three of classic horror's biggest stars: Peter Lorre, Lon Chaney Jr., and Boris Karloff! Chaney Jr. gives his take on his father's classic role as Quasimoto in the silent The Hunchback of Notre Dam and also appears as Kharis the mummy. Additionally this program marks the last time Karloff and Chaney would don the classic makeup of both the Wolf Man, and Frankenstein's Monster.
