Elwy Yost at the Movies


Today I thought about someone I hadn't thought of in years.  I thought about Elwy Yost.

Elwy Yost hosted Magic Shadows and Saturday Night at the Movies on TVOntario for most of my life.  He focused on classic films, and I was too young to appreciate it, but he was a regular face I'd see as I surfed channels.  He was always there, hosting these shows from 1974 to 1999, and he always seemed to love what he did.

Wikipedia tells me he's retired and living in West Vancouver, British Columbia.  I'll bet he's seated in a comfy chair right now, enjoying a movie.
