Doctor and K9, I think MB means the DS Files book edited by Edward Gross (no relation to Darren Gross, so far as I recall).  To me the most interesting selection in the book was an interview with Grayson, which Gross claimed was the last interview she ever did before her illness.

The last I heard, the book, which is out of print, was selling for outrageous prices on the internet, but some diligent fan might have scanned at least some of the material.

Matt Hall has posted a longer, more intimate eulogy of his late Father. It's one of the best pieces of writing I have ever read about anyone involved in 20th century theatre and television.  DS isn't mentioned, however.

Alec Newman was yummilicious in the role of Barnabas.

To me, Roy Thinnes as Trask was the scariest thing in the entire show.  Forget Angelique--there was no doubt in my mind that this Trask was a force of pure evil.

That is, when I wasn't distracted by the dead caterpillars glued to his eyebrows (just kidding).

I'm sure Sam made a lot more with his work on OLTL than he ever did for DC and Dark Shadows.  So I hardly think Wildercliff was "the house that Dan Curtis built."  What a profoundly stupid and RUDE thing to say.

Patti, I think you're talking about the current DS 1991 sidebars.  I believe the older man you reference is Joshua Collins (portrayed by Stefan Gierasch, if I recall aright).

Best,

Steve

Dom honey, we have the audio for the missing episode.  If I remember correctly, it came from the collection of a fan from our time who was always known as Josette.

I think this one was written by Violet Welles.  Only she could write Count Petofi as he truly was.

I can't recall whether this link was posted in the past--a fan compiled all the 1991 DS deleted scenes together into this YT video:

It opens with a Roger/Liz scene, discussing David.

Calendar Events / Announcements '14 II / OT -- Constantine
« on: November 04, 2014, 04:22:29 AM »
I don't know if any other DS fans out there are watching Constantine.  The main attraction for me is Welsh actor Matt Ryan's portrayal of the title character.  He's brooding, conflicted, snarky, and a bit of a mess.  There was a lot of concern in fannish circles that the series was going to seriously adulterate the source material, but from what I have read, so far the story mostly follows the books.

For those who like occult horror with an edge, you might want to have a look. The scripts are uneven but Ryan is worth checking out.

Ryan, like a certain other actor we admire, is a dyed-in-the-wool Shakespearean, with roles in the Royal Shakespeare Company.  As a child he appeared in a West End production of Les Miz.

Of course I remember.  It was our babysitter.  Her name was Judy and it was the last summer we had a babysitter, as far as I recall.  (Child supervision standards were a lot less highly regimented in the Sixties.)

She loved the show and regaled us with stories of Barnabas and Angelique. She even drew a chalk picture of Angelique on a small blackboard we had in our finished basement.  I still remember how fascinated I was by it even though the thought of her powers terrorized me.

The first episode I saw featured Professor Stokes and I was intrigued.  In the second episode, Cassandra was casting spells, poisoning Liz and finally exorcised by the ghost of Trask.  After that, it was utter addictive frenzy all the way.

Ah, the summer of '68...

Gerard, that is hysterical!  There's an audio recording of Joan on that soap opera in one episode.  She sounds drunk and under-rehearsed.  But she's still JOAN.

She was sixty-something and supposed to be playing the town slut... lord a mercy.

The word "cougar" had not yet been invented.

« on: November 01, 2014, 01:57:24 PM »
I don't think it would have worked, and I really doubt it was ever suggested.  In several interviews, Diana basically said "I was the Phoenix and that was it." 

Interestingly, however, Cassandra wore a dress previously seen on Laura... and when she was first resurrected as Vampilique, she was wearing that dress...

After Cassandra and Angelique, I loved Witchiepoo.  She was just so outrageous.

Endora was an early favorite, of course...
