Nice shot of Laura and Nora today. I feel a pang thinking of our dear Denise. May her spirit know peace.

Mad Millicent... Nancy played these outrageous scripts so brilliantly, and that's a great photo of her!

I was definitely in denial about DS. I remember turning on ABC at 4 p.m. that following Monday and being devastated when Password came on. I'd liked Password. Up till then.

Today's photo made me smile. According to fan gossip, the dialogue originally had Barnabas musing: "I've got to find a way to make everyone relax more around me. I know, I'll throw a party and then get them all stoned on claret cup, making up some story about Willie messing up the hors-d'oeuvres and thus providing an excuse for why I haven't gotten any food for them! Then Vicki MUST feel sorry for me! It's a plan!"

Marge honey, THRILLED for you that you found the 1966 episodes!  I know how much you love them.

Let's say it all together: "Because I CHOOSE TO DO SO."

I am very fond of A Darkness at Blaisedon. A friend gave me a copy of it years ago and I've watched it numerous times.

I can't say exactly just why I like it so much; it just has that DS feel, but with different characters and storyline.

Today's scene was a dramatic, traumatic event for many viewers in 1971.

We all said, "No, it can't be! Dark Shadows MUST go on!"

But alas, this was the end of the line.

Nevertheless here we all are, fifty-some years later, still enjoying our favorite show.

Cheers! G.

Nice to see Michael Stroka in the role of Laslo today. I've never understood why Stroka was written out so abruptly. I presume that he had found another work opportunity, most likely on another soap, and I'm sure he worked on DS without a contract--so many did.

Very atmospheric shot. Thanks MB!

Great shot of Yeagar and Buffie. It's at least a quarter of a century since I last watched these episodes. It looks somewhat early on because Chris seems to have the nose prothesis on. They had to abandon that, if I recall correctly, when it started coming off during one scene. He probably simply sweated too much for the putty to be stable. Those studio lights were hot. I always feel for Thayer in those scenes where Petofi had that big fur coat on. And he was already wearing that huge Petofi wig...

Another great photo today--the lighting on Joan's face and the drab curtain backdrop carries a hint of film noir.

The return of Paul Stoddard was another great storyline that was run abruptly into the ground, most likely due to Dan Curtis's interference with the plot. And from what I've read, that had to do with all the hate mail fans sent in complaining about a storyline in which Barnabas was evil and duplicitous--just as he had originally been in 1967.

Love today's shot of Magda and Sandor! This was right after Magda had put the big curse on Quentin, if I recall aright.

Then she found out she'd cursed her own family. One of the best DS storylines although it pretty much got derailed once a certain Count arrived in town... a character I love, of course!

Thanks, Midnite and MB!

For those who may have missed it--the site does allow 3 or 4 free views per month still, I believe. I don't have a subscription and I was able to read it.

This blog is a lot of fun for the few Strange Paradise fans on here. Michelle started it about a year ago but had to take some breaks. It features very detailed notes about costuming, the Tarot spreads, food and other elements ... very well written blog.

Gorgeous shot. To me, Virginia was one of the most talented actresses on the show, but I seldom hear fans speaking of her. I think it is because her character is unpopular, and in part that's because she was so incredibly brilliant in putting forward this portrait of a complicated, embittered woman whose emotions were often raw and turbulent. I wanted to see Samantha get her own back against Gerard...

It's so long since I've looked at any 1840 episodes that I have no recollection of those draperies. Such a pretty color, and I love the pattern.

Hi MB,

I wonder if she was thinking of the version of the early history that was part of the PT 1841 storyline--just a guess. As you say, there were numerous retcons of various versions of family history as the show unfolded.

I remember at some point circa 1969 when I read the first "Marilyn" Ross novel being intrigued by the references to Isaac Collins. I don't think he was ever mentioned in any of the shows I watched in the original broadcast. I started watching in late June 1968.

Fabulous shot of Laura today. Always nice to see her!

G.
