On this day in Horror History Sidney Eddie Mosesian (Sid Haig) was born. An icon who’s talents are heavily rooted in the golden age of the horror genre, Haig’s debut in Spider Baby or, The Maddest Story Ever Told (1968) would start a career sprawling more than half a century and giving us some of the most beloved and memorable roles of all time.
“We shot that [Spider Baby or, The Maddest Story Ever Told (1968)] in something like ten or twelve days. For the first two days, I basically avoided Lon Chaney Jr. Not because I was afraid of him but because I had no idea what you would say to someone like him. There was a point where I was chosen to go find him because they needed him on the set. So I went to his trailer and I knocked on the door and then he was standing in front of me and I said, "Mr. Chaney, they need you on the set" and he said, "Stop that. I'm not Mr. Chaney. I'm Lon. You're Sid. Let's just keep it at that." It really put me at ease.” –Sid Haig
