Roebuck is more commonly known as Dr. Shocker, and on October 26, the Chinese 6 Theaters (6925 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, CA 90028) will host Dr. Shocker’s Auction of Horror. Read on for the gory details, and be sure to visit the official website of Daniel Roebuck, aka Dr. Shocker!
From the Press Release
In what will surely be the greatest monster matchup since Abbott and Costello met Frankenstein in 1948, Blacksparrow Auctions is teaming up with Dr. Shocker (noted character actor Daniel Roebuck’s alter ego) to offer movie fans a once in a lifetime collectible event, Dr. Shocker’s Auction of Horror!
This will be a rare opportunity to relive the pop culture explosion of classic monster and horror memorabilia of the late 20th century through the collection of one of its most avid fans, Daniel Roebuck. For nearly half a century, Roebuck has fostered a passion for classic monster and horror film collectibles. This love for all things monster related eventually grew so large that Roebuck, inspired by Forry Ackerman and Bob Burns, opened his own museum, Dr. Shocker’s House of Horror! Now this comprehensive cross-section of his amassed treasures is being passed on, including a vintage Bride of Frankenstein theatrical banner poster, dozens of lobby cards, autographs, original artwork, wax figures, vintage dolls, props, life masks, and many of the classic toys once offered in the pages of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine. The live auction event will take place at the Chinese 6 Theatres of the world famous TCL Chinese Theatres in Hollywood, CA on October 26, 2013. A print catalog, featuring ShockerVision, is available for pre-order now at BlackSparrowAuctions.com.
Adding to the excitement of the auction event, Blacksparrow Auctions is pleased to announce the world premiere of Roebuck’s latest Dr. Shocker project, Dr. Shocker’s Vault of Horror, on October 9th at the same Chinese 6 Theatres. This DVD release will feature a veritable BOO-POURRI of ghoulish delights, including Monstermaniacs, a documentary about the monster collecting craze featuring Roebuck’s historic collection as its centerpiece. Seating is limited for the one night only big screen premiere. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
