Wow.  These are super-trippy.  The Julia drawings are very reminiscent of Ronald Searle, a popular cartoonist and caricaturist in the mid-twentieth century.

Does this guy have a connection to the Depp movie?  If that's Willie as he appears in the new film, the existing casting info for the character is obviously a complete blind since they clearly decided to go with a much younger actor.

I thought there was already a thread for this, but can't find it.  A friend just emailed me about Denise Nickerson appearing on a series called, I think, "Top Chef Desserts" on the Food Network next week.  The series is doing a Willy Wonka themed episode and having Denise plus some other cast members from the classic film as guests.

I guess check the network's website for air dates and times.  I don't have the info.

OK, there's another Jessica Chastain thread here where it identifies her as the 2004 Carolyn.

I saw the pilot once and I don't even remember Carolyn in it...

G.

Remind me again who Jessica Chastain is vis a vis DS?  Actress from the WB pilot?

Sorry I'm not doing a better job of keeping track.

Thanks so much for the photo, MB.  I am sorry to hear you had difficulties from the storm.

gratefully, G.

The trailer suggests a whole lot of nothing happens, if the most exciting thing they could come up with was some girl giving a little shriek because a door slammed.

This has the potential to have some great images of our favorite house, but I am afraid the photog will wind up being the usual sick-making swirl-and-jerk through the ringer merry-go-round on speed expected, seemingly, by today's audiences.

Excuse the snark,

David:  I am afraid the reality is that a shared love of Dark Shadows does not necessarily signal somebody who will become a close friend, or even necessarily a casual acquaintance.  I've met people who told me they were huge fans of DS and often as not nothing came of the meeting.  In some cases, the people just seemed "off" to me in a way that usually makes me less than keen for further contact.  I don't feel the need to go on and on about this.  Every fandom has its share of "God's special children" (to coin a phrase).

I have found that some fans do become friends in a way that is very natural.  A conversation that begins about the artistic genius of Grayson Hall may branch out into other areas of shared interest, and if you keep seeing the individual over the weekend, by the time you're saying goodbye, a friendship is born.

I personally don't think "Friending" someone on F-book is all that significant.  Just my personal take on that site.  I think though if someone expresses views that offend you, you are perfectly within your rights to unfriend them.  In most of the cases there probably wasn't a genuine basis for true friendship in any case.

Just how I see things--your mileage may vary.  Good luck.

I loved the painting on the cover of the booklet "in sombre colors."

This was one of the few mementos that I was able to save after my Mom threw away most of my DS stuff when I left home for college in the mid 1970s.  However, I wasn't quick enough on my feet in the late 1980s to save the packet from her yard sale when she was cleaning out the house and getting ready to sell it.

I loved the 3-D effect of the famous shot of Nicholas and Julia when she informs him his plan is "monstrous" and he chuckles and says:  "It is meant to be!"  She wore one of those heavy brooches in that scene and the 3-D made it look so trippy.

Wow.  If what they wrote is true, it sounds as if Tim Burton has become a crazed beret-wearing, riding-crop wielding, pencil-moustached, perpetually irate mad director along the lines of Z. Z. von Schnerk in the legendary Avengers episode, "Epic."

It sounds more to me like cheap taradiddle that may have a partial basis in fact (e. g. the fact that Helena is watching the DVDs may be something she decided to do on her own account, and her stories about them may have made other cast members want to watch too; this then gets twisted into Tim and Johnny demanding that EVERYONE watch the DVDs of the old show).  It's obviously being posted on IMDB to discredit the director and the project, or at the very least to make both look ridiculous.  I wouldn't waste any time pursuing it further.

Just my two drachmae...

Barbara Steele ... SUBLIME!

Shots such as tonight's remind me why I would love to own a properly rendered edition of this series in my own library.

That's beautiful workmanship on Joshua's cenotaph.

Thanks for the link!

I had the chance to see syndie prints of nearly all the GFU episodes last year, and I'd say the series is good fun, though very uneven.  Some of the stories are so outrageously campy that even I wind up shaking my head.  Margaret Leighton's episode which includes a matter transmitter device I believe (a favorite Sixties conceit) and the show with Peggy Lee and Noel Harrison trading burlesque-style double-entendres while Powers is duking it out in the desert opposite Ruth Roman are both classics of their kind (and a very strange "kind" it is). Karloff is superb as Mother Muffin--they brought in Robert Vaughn's Napoleon Solo character for that one. 

Oh, Yvonne de Carlo is in a particularly bizarre episode, too.  Fun stuff.

Please nobody tell me that Pierson screened Grayson's Playtex commercial at that stupid Banquet.

If they do, I make have to Take Steps.  Don't make me Take Steps, Mr. Shannon! *gritted teeth*
