    A genuine American original (though Finnish-born and inspired by a Chas. Addams character) — often imitated, never surpassed. Even Spike Jones promoted a bogus Vampira, as voiced by Loulie Jean Norman on that once-famous monster-rally album of 1959, "Spike Jones in Stereo." Never got the impression here that Maila Nurmi was playing the Vampira shtik for camped-up hokum — more of a droll and brooding strangeness about her, quite unlike Cassandra Peterson's later "Elvira" act.
