        Poor doesn’t equal failure

            TV horror hearse or look-alike?

            Is it the original creepy hearse used in a popular Memphis TV show in the 1960s and 1970s or just a nearly identical look-alike? That’s the question hearse owner Joe Willis hasn’t been able to answer about his piece of morbid memorabilia. Retirees Joe and Merrill Willis own and operate the Yoknapatawpha Heritage Museum on Highway 30 in Lafayette County and a hearse in their possession for the past 20 years, has recently come under question as to whether it may be the authentic item used in Sivad’s “Fantastic Features” and at the Memphis Malco Theaters. (June 4, 2010, Page 1A)
