Great captures.  If I ever saw this episode, I have no memory of it.

btw, in the new book FOLK HORROR REVIVAL: FIELD STUDIES edited by Andy Paciorek, there's an amusing article by Tina Rath, an authority on the scholarly study of vampire lore (particularly in fiction, films, video games etc.).  It's called "All you ever knew about vampires is wrong:  a transcript of a Fortean Meeting talk."  She spends several pages discussing the mythic powers of silver over vampires and explores various possibilities about how this notion came about.  It's a fun read.

Miss Rice's novel QUEEN OF THE DAMNED involved vampires in ancient Egypt.  I forget the full backstory.  There was a film made with an actress who died tragically soon after, I believe.

Midnite, Kosmo reminded me that he had told you that I had told him (lol) about THE VAMPIRE'S GHOST.  Even though it was only a few months ago, I had COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN about that film.  My short term memory is truly shot to aitch e double hockey sticks. haha

I wish the Gregory scene had been included.  But it was entirely about character development so of course, it had to go.

I've never heard of vampires being allergic to silver.  There's been debate about when the idea that a vampire could be killed by a silver bullet came into media vampire lore.  No basis for it any of the European folklore, if I recall correctly.

It's almost not worth bothering trying to make sense of that movie because it was so heavily cut by studio mandate that a lot of it, especially once BarnaDepp returns to the street, is just plain incoherent.  At least it was to me the one time I watched it.

I would think of it as punishment being made to watch the thing again.  The Roger in the cloakroom scene was one of many that made no sense at all.

BarnaDepp bears a REALLY strong resemblance to an adult Eddie Munster in today's shot...

Just reporting what I'm seeing.

Yes Roger = Liz's brother and Carolyn = her daughter--same relationships as in our time.

A friend of mine was so upset by that particular news item, she's giving up watching.  And she's kept with it faithfully since the beginning.  I lost interest less than halfway through the first season.  Since I already no longer had a signal at that point, I had no way of checking in on it anyway.

Tom Mison really is indescribably sexy...

I'm sure the polka-dot "dress" (I'd call it a housecoat) was something Joan wore for comfort while rehearsing.  We've seen Grayson's smocks many times but this is the first glimpse I've ever seen of what Joan wore for this.  Great photos.

All the photos say Getty Archive and presumably can be viewed if one searches DS on their site.  It's incredible some of the things that have turned up there in the past couple of years.

Today was a day of sorrow and mourning ... FORTY FIVE YEARS AGO.  How the hell did THAT happen??

Hey Patti, In PT 1970, Elizabeth Stoddard had inherited some money, but the main heir to the Collins fortune and the business was Cousin Quentin.  It's never spoken of, but in the PT storyline you have to presume that the 1890s Quentin had been chosen by Grandmamamama Edith Collins to be the heir.  In that alternate reality, Quentin must have been rather better behaved and so escaped being cursed by Magda and, presumably, the whole scandalous marriage to Jenny and very public philandering escapade with Laura (etc.).  So, the head of the family descended through Quentin's children, rather than Jamison's as was the case in our own time-band.

There's a throwaway line that Liz has in one of the first PT episodes where she recalls to someone that she had entrusted Roger to manage her money on her behalf.  He ran through it all, and as a result, they were dependent on a monthly allowance from Quentin.

I agree with you that PT Roger Collins is based on the Clifton Webb character in Laura, which always struck me as a kind of alternate version of Rebecca.  PT Roger is actually "coded" as a closeted gay character.  A rather 1940s touch given that the story is set in 1970.

I'm sure Grayson knew of Judith Anderson's work as Danvers.  I find Grayson's portrayal of Hoffman to be on a rather different groove of sinister, tight-lipped disapproval.  I love it when the KLS character comments something like "Congratulations, Hoffman.  You're the only person who could turn an apology into a testimonial!"

I think Amy Collins is meant to be the sister of Chris Collins, similar to Amy and Chris in our timeband.  If you think of the revised alternate PT storyline I mentioned above, Amy and Chris would have been first cousins of PT Quentin, descended perhaps from a third child (a boy) Quentin might have had with his wife (we could discuss candidates for who Quentin would have married in the 1890s... I doubt whether either Beth  would have gone to the altar with him, but who knows).

Will is Carolyn's husband.  A lot of this is set forth in the first week of PT 1970 episodes.

And yeah, as of 1027, Bruno is still around.

That's too bad.  Wasn't Lawless in that awful TARZAN series with Travis Fimmel about 16 years ago, before anybody bothered to teach him how to act?

A friend of mine who will normally watch anything involving male eye candy had to stop watching SALEM before the end of season 1.  He is also an authority on Massachusetts North Shore history and folklore and the awful writing and direction of the series was just too much for him.

In honor of April Fools day.  I actually read this when it originally came out.  It was in a small comic with a couple of other stories.
