Canny Resemblances

A reply to letter-writer Robert D. Stone who implied that TV horror hostess Elvira is ripping off Vampira’s persona and ideas (Calendar Letters, Oct. 16):

Elvira and Vampira have about as much in common as Hulk Hogan and Pee-Wee Herman.

For the record:

On last week’s Letters Page we mistakenly matched up the portrait of King Charles II of Spain with a mug of Elvira of Hollywood. We meant to use a photo of Vampira. We don’t want to run their look-alike mugs this week, so readers will just have to take our word for it that the visages of Vampira and Charles II are so spookily similar that they probably were--as they like to say in Spy magazine--twins who were separated at birth.
