Yay for "must"!  Definitely helps give everything that "Dark Shadows" edge.

Slashy moment... I'm having fun imagining that the reason Roger is staring is that he's thinking to himself "Hubba Hubba!  How can I offer to let him spend the night in MY ROOM without seeming too forward?? Sophia will just have to make other arrangements!"

Because that's how my brain works...

MB, I know this is outrageously off-topic, but an audiotape has surfaced of one of Joan Crawford's SECRET STORM appearances and it makes for fascinating reading.  At the start of the tape, canned music plays because the character (confusingly also named Joan) is supposed to be listening to the radio and relaxing at home:

The tape really makes me appreciate Joan Bennett's poise in making the transition from films to working on a soap opera.  And I love Joan Crawford as a film actress.

Current Talk '14 II / July Background

I'm looking at a wonderful shot of Liz and Mrs. Johnson standing on Widow's Hill on the left, and a great shot of Professor Stokes soliloquizing to a bewildered Adam on mmy right.  Wonderful to see them.  And Cassandra and her dear Brother on the upper left.  Sublime.

I love Dark Shadows.

For those who need to know, four more episodes of SLEEPY HOLLOW have been made available for free streaming on the Fox channel website.  I think there will be two more after this that will be streamed for a couple of weeks in Sept. before the new season starts up.

Ooh Dom you're on thin ice with the Frid fans and Ben Cross fans there!  lol.

Alec Newman was in his prime when he did this and he's stunning.  But more importantly he had a kind of mystique as Barnabas that I have truthfully never seen in any other portrayal.  Frid had mystique in buckets, but Newman's is a different kind of mystique... among other things more sexual.  Newman wins top marks from me in his work in the role.

I presume in terms of running time of the finished pilot, we're now at roughly the 20 minute mark.  It's odd that I have total amnesia of the scene of Barnabas' arrival at Collinwood.  The dialogue at this point is really well written.

Thanks again, MB!

Current Talk '14 II / DS 1991 trailer
« on: July 11, 2014, 11:38:25 PM »
Fans,

I just found this fan-made trailer for the 1991 revival series on Youtube.  Apart from the overkill music (sounds like someone's attempt to imitate Carl Orff) I enjoyed it:

I would have liked to have heard Marie read that scene from hoDS.  I vaguely recall it from the "Marilyn" Ross novelization.  Pity they couldn't get one of the actors to partner her in it.

Apart from seeing old friends (which would be the most exciting of all), the only thing I could imagine that would make a 50th anniversary Festival exciting is if they were able to persuade Alex Isles and David Henesy to attend.  I am very doubtful of that happening.  Shutting out the fan vendors and performers has robbed it of a lot of its charm.

Again I must thank you, MB, for taking the time out to transcribe all of this.  I wish I had any memory of this current scene.  I do remember how handsome, dashing, and poignant Alec's performance was in the role.

Best,

No, Dark Lady. I simply enjoy collecting and sharing anecdotes about my all time favorite actress... Grayson Hall.

This is just too cool!  I don't even recall the shot of the portrait from my one viewing of the pilot, so had I been admitted to the mansion, I am afraid I wouldn't even have recognized that.  It is bizarre that WB never claimed their property.  I wonder if it's still there?  You know that painting would fetch a pretty price at a Festival auction.

Even though the date is given as 1788 to my untutored eye it looks more early 1800s.  Certainly very Byronic.

Thanks so much to Midnite and MB!  Happy Holidays!

Grayson liked some gourmet dishes and she would attempt to tell the young fans about this kind of food and the reaction was predictable.

One of her favorite dishes was Carpaccio, raw beef medallions served with a kind of sauce.  She first had it at Harry's Bar (Cipriani's) in Venice.   Grayson pronounced it "divine" and the fans all went "EWWW!"

I don't think any of the fans ever forgot any time they were fortunate enough to spend with Grayson...

I saw an ad somewhere last night, or maybe it was this morning (my brains are literally frying in the extreme heat we're experience today) stating that all the existing episodes are available for free viewing on fox.com over the next month or so as a promotion for the new season of this show.  I may have misunderstood that, but this was what the ad seemed to state when I saw it.

visions of naked Tom Mison dance through my head...
