Bill Hinzman played an amazing icon of the silver screen. The very first zombie we got to see in The Night of the Living Dead. When this creepy old bastard stumbled onto the screen, we still weren’t really sure what was coming next. We didn’t know what a flesh-eating zombie really was. I wrote recently that having re-watched the movie Bill Hinzman’s scene was surprisingly good. He was a fast-moving, tool-using, scary son of a bitch.
I’ve included two copies of this figure here, one in black and white as we saw him in the film and one in color as the image was made.
