I'd really like to hear from someone, preferably a seasoned fan from these boards, as to whether the new book really does have some rare, good quality photos we haven't seen before.    I'd still like to browse the book before I spend good money on it.

BarnaDepp for some reason keeps making me think of Theda Bara, as drawn by Charles Addams, with manicure by the same person who did Streisand's nails in the Sixties.

Very curious now to hear what he *sounds* like in the role.

Whoa!  *jaw drops*

I really wasn't prepared for JLM's neon-blond wiglet.

Maybe the party is for Carolyn's birthday this time around?

And once again, who fails to show up?  Bella Heathcote!  Is *her* role to be a cameo?

As for the Fangoria article, which I haven't read, I'm afraid I am at the point now where I take anything said by Seth Graham-whatever with one mighty handful of salt.  It's nice to know that he tells of his opinions.  It could ALL be spin and after all, spin is a creative writer's stock in trade.

I agree with michael that it seems strange that Bella Heathcote hasn't been featured at all in the pub stills that have been released. But then, what has been handed out to date has been a tiny thimbleful compared to what one would normally have seen at this point in the pub campaign for a project of this cachet.

As dear Grayson was wont to say--who can figure anything.

OK, now I'm actually liking the latest Helena/Julia ensemble/hair. The clipped version made me think she was wearing a French peasant blouse.  This is a very new look for Julia, and I wonder what Grayson would have thought of the hint of cleavage.  But, it works.

Thanks for posting that link.  I walked right by the new issue of Vanity just a few minutes ago but didn't bother to look at the actual "article" as I presumed it was just the photos and that they were as seen in the scans.

I really don't care for the look given Julia here.  Wrong hair and wrong frock.  Helena's look implies that the good doctor has been raiding her own sedative cabinet, too.

Overall I found these photos disappointing.  A symptom of my growing personal disenchantment with this project, or simply poor choices on the part of the photographer?  I have liked the other stills we have been allowed to see before these.

Ugh, I wish he had found someone other than Pierson to interview about DS.

Why don't any of these journos interview our very own Mysterious Benefactor??

wondering,

I know it seems odd but I think the "article" is meant to be an elaborate joke.  I noticed there were several other "Goth council interventions" on various topics.

They're not really DS fans, although one or two do seem to be fans.  Even what they say is hard to evaluate--I couldn't take any of it seriously.

Again, not to belabor the point, but I know people who would joshingly refer to HBC as a "sleazy whore" just because she married the guy who has directed a number of her star turns lately.  What can I say, I know people who have a sense of humor sometimes lacking in good taste.

Just giving my impressions.  As always, YMMV.

I agree, Philippe.  I really hope the entire movie is not written as those dialogue excerpts imply, but at this point, I feel very neutral about the whole thing.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I visited the Museum of Broadcasting in NYC a couple of times about 12 years ago.  The last I heard, they were trying to get permission to release one of the OLTL episodes with Grayson in the part of the archive that is available for public viewing.  Only a small part of it is accessible when you are there.  When I went, I was very surprised at the things people were choosing to watch.  It costs a not insubstantial fee to go in there but I saw people tuned to episodes of Seinfeld and the Honeymooners. 

I viewed a tape that was made for the Museum by Lela Swift being interviewed about her career as a director, including the Playhouse 90 (or was it Studio One?) years.  That was quite interesting.  She did discuss DS, of course.

I've seen a couple of photographs of Grayson attending a SOAP vigil that was held in November of 1969.  I had the impression that the group didn't last very long, but perhaps it did.

Uncle Roger, oh how I wish the clip of Grayson with Anthony George and Nancy Barrett could be included as an extra on one of the MPI discs!  I wasn't going to the Festivals back when they ran it.

At least this episode has appeared and perhaps we'll see more.  I have noticed over the past couple of years that more and more episodes of OLTL from this period are coming out of the mothballs.  Most of them are much better quality than this one.

I just love the exquisite drama of the moment when Lincoln mentions Miss Delilah and Euphemia freezes, her voices lowers to a perilously frigid bass pitch, and she rasps, "I told you nevah... NEVAH ... to mention that name!"

Nobody else does it like the Divine One...

Fans,

I am excited to report that I just learned that an episode of One Life to Live
we haven't seen before from Grayson's Euphemia Ralston storyline has been posted
to Youtube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZuvKfiie0M

I have been able to watch part 1 (there seem to be 3 parts in all) and although
the visual quality is not too good, the sound is OK.  I played through parts 2 and 3 and Grayson reappears for a short scene in part 3.  No Nancy Barrett or Tony George in this one, so far as I can tell.

For those who don't know, Grayson's personal backstory for Euphemia was that as
a young woman, she had either been raised in the North or been educated there
and so would not have a typical Southern accent. However, one of the directors
on the show disagreed and made Grayson play the role with a "corn-pone"
deep-fried accent. The episode currently available is an example of Grayson
having to work with this Director. Eventually (thankfully) Grayson got her wish
and Euphemia lost the Southern accent.

I'm not up on the history of OLTL but I believe that Euphemia's estranged
daughter Delilah became a regular character on the show. Euphemia's final
episode was taped in around April 1983 I believe.

It has been a longtime dream of mine some day to be able to view ALL of
Grayson's work as Euphemia.

Best,

Steve

Oh yeah.  Different costumes, sets rearranged, people appearing and disappearing...

I think they worked under the assumption that we all had amnesia from one day to the next. Eventually, I guess they learned better, but never well enough to keep it all consistent.

I still maintain that given the pressures, time-frame, and sheer unbridled insanity with which the average workday there was interlaced, the shows maintain an extraordinary level of quality... which is why it IS my all-time favorite TV show EVER...

It depends.  Sometimes they just used what had been taped the day before.  On other occasions, the re-stagings (as I think of them) could have dramatic differences.  I remember once when Thayer David was in a scene at the end of Day One, and suddenly not in the same scene's finale when repeated on Day Two.
