By day, Bert Henry was a scrawny nerd who worked in a chorus at Disneyland, but at night, he was an L.A. burlesque club comic who cut a series of raunchy stag party albums for Fax Records (Bert Henry in the Raw, Bert Henry the Hard Way), all of which similarly feature a nude woman on the cover. His recording career ended, however, when the head of the label was murdered along with the man's mistress who was found in a pose not unlike that of the model adorning (his LPs): "A manufacturer of risque records and an attractive nude woman were found in their bungalow at 7671 Fountain Ave., where they had been shot by an intruder on November 10, 1963. William H. Door, 46, identified by police as a widely known distributor of pornographic material, was lying fully dressed and face down with his feet bound on the dining room floor. Mrs. Ernestine Ellen Criss, 30, Door's mistress, was sprawled nude on her back in a king-size bed in one of the one of the two bedrooms. A pillow covered her face. Door, was shot twice, once in the back of the head and once in the hand. He had also had received two severe blows to the head, apparently in a struggle with his killer. Mrs. Criss was shot once in the mouth but was not beaten. Detectives theorized that Door and the dead woman may have been victims of a grudge killing by some of Door's associates in the pornography rackets. Friends said he had made a number of enemies through his rough handling of female models for the films and photographs he reportedly produced. Police believed Criss, who had been living with Door for at least a year, was awakened after retiring for the night and was shot through a pillow being held over her head to muffle her screams. Her killer then probably ambushed Door as he returned home. The bodies may have been in the house for as long as 12 hours before they were found at 8:30 a.m. by the cleaning lady. Door was said to be the owner of the Crescendo night club building on the Sunset Strip and had been associated in the past with The Garden of Allah, the Sphinx Club, Le Madelon and the Interlude. He was also said to have been a star football player at Temple U and for the Philadelphia Eagles." Found that info in a brochure for guided tours of notorious Los Angeles homes. A lot of lower California's detritus ends up in Oregon. Reminds me of dearly departed Dr. Gonzo's old quip: "The scum also rises." quomma blog
