I thought she did finally publish this, and Leviathans, some years ago?  Have you tried emailing Kathleen Resch?

Best,

Wow.  Kathy looks great AND has great memories to share!  Thanks for all you've shared, Midnite.

One of my fave moments from "Satan in High Heels"--"Who needs a cat?"

Thank you, Philippe.  I saw Seizure once, at a DS party.  There was so much cross talk and laughter that I've always meant to see it again.  It struck me as very much a period piece.  Martine Beswick is always fun to see.  Apparently the original title was going to be Queen of Horror and David del Valle waggishly wrote about the stir in town upon seeing a marquee that read "Jonathan Frid--Queen of Horror."  Naughty!

Well I personally am praying they don't do any of Grayson's characters... Adam seems an odd choice for the first release given that he was only on the show for a few months, and his storyline is so unpopular.  Maybe they didn't bother to find out what we actually like.

If they do a Grayson character, though, I'll live.  I've survived looking at the ghastly caricature of her in the Gold Key comics.  bleah.

Barn looks as if he's been out on a bender.  Adam looks like a Ken doll that had an unfortunate encounter with a Mack truck.  Willie looks as if he's being played by one of the blokes from Thunderbirds are Go with a very mousey dye job. Quentin looks as if Magda just slipped him a mickey (either that, or Selby was reacting to some particularly preposterous line of dialogue Sam gave him).

The Devil's Daughter is such a wonderful film, so stylish and with wonderful witty dialogue.  Abe Vigoda has a great cameo appearance, and then of course there's the mute, tragic chauffeur who communicates such poignant sorrow with nary a word of dialogue.  I was thinking of it yesterday because I just watched "The Initiation of Sarah" from 1978 and that was a much less polished, banal production... Winters seemed strangely off-key and under-rehearsed, disappointingly, in the latter film.

I'm very disappointed if Pierson flatly stated that there are "no plans" to release the films now.  It would have been reassuring if he had told us that "there are no current plans, but we are confident that WB will order the release of the films."  I wonder whether with their DVD-R on demand program in place, they're even less interested than ever in spending money to do decent editions of classic films. e. g. the 50th anniversary of Horror of Dracula came and went without an upgrade DVD release...

Thanks to Lori for the link.  It's funny to think of DC "deciding" to make Barnabas more sympathetic...

And MB, what you wrote has been my understanding; given the hoopla and hints of dramatic announcements over the weekend, I have been wondering whether we might hear news, or at least rumors, regarding the DVD releases.

If there's an announcement regarding a date for the projected hoDS/NoDS DVD release at the Festival, can somebody please, please PLEASE post it here?

Thanks,

How fabulous, Teresa.  It sounds like a charming moment for him as well as for the three of you.

Many thanks to Philippe for the fascinating write-up.  But an hour long wait in the 90 degree LA sun without shelter... I would have melted away by the time I got up to the theatre.

Poor old Mr. Frid.  I'm glad he got through it unscathed.  Of course you know I am wondering if that was the original cane he was holding...

Fabulous shots, Joe!

Thanks to MB and to Joe for those links.

I would love any thoughts from anyone who has notes to share about the visual impact of the screening and any related technical reviews about the sound, etc.  I just read an article in a Video Watchdog of a few issues back about "Wild Billy" Friedkin's havoc-wreaking "experiments" with the color settings on the French Connection DVD and what a mess he made of it (apparently, he made less of a mess with playing around with the "Cruising" DVD release).  The French Connection disc was such a horror that the cinematographer who is still alive apparently tried to have his name removed from it.

Darren's thoughtful comments about the color palette and "murkiness" effects in the print previously screened were so apt and fascinating to read.

I am trying to accept the reality that I will probably never, ever see hoDS again looking the way it did when I saw it in the movie theatre back in 1970.

Would love to hear details of this, for anyone who feels like sharing.  Sounds like great fun!  I would love to know the technical specs of what they screen.  It would be great if it were a gorgeous new 35 mm print of the movie.  If the owners decide to make it available, maybe our local rep house (founded among others by Thayer David!) will screen it one of these days.

Wishing everyone who attends a marvelous time!
