Behind The Scenes: Night Of The Living Dead – The Coopers (1968)

Hey friends, with my loved of the Living Dead series and the fact that the first time I watched it was on Halloween I felt I had to share this behind the scenes shot of the Cooper Family in various states of being dead and undead.

We have George A. Romero proudly holding a paint can and brush while behind him stands Judy (Judith Riley) looking a little uncomfortable at holding what I believe is a can of Bosco paint. To the right of Riley is Harry Cooper (Karl Hardman) with Karen Cooper (Kyra Schon) on his knee who happens to be holding onto her just murdered fictional Mother, Helen Cooper (Marilyn Eastman).
