Darn, I missed it! *pout*

Thanks, Cousin Taeylor, for posting about it.  I love that felicitous phrase--"bare chested and DIRTY."  Sounds like Quentin needs a tongue bath! Volunteers, anyone?

I think I had heard about this story a couple of years ago.

It just sounds like yet another instance of a couple of dreary individuals with bean-counting propensities trying to spoil other people's fun because they have none of their own... just my not so humble opinion, of course!

Thanks for sharing that.  I never watched Little house, either originally or in reruns, so I was also unaware of KLS' appearance on the series.

I recently rented Charlies Angels, season 1, disc 2 via Netflix just to see Thayer David's episode of that show.  His part was tiny--he had two or three scenes where he was on camera, and I think his dialogue was limited to three lines.  Still, I loved getting to see Thayer on the show.  I have the disc with his episode of Starsky & Hutch in my Netflix "queue," as well--another series I never watched, and it's a treat to be able to catch Thayer's work in it thanks to the magic of DVD.

I haven't.  I bought my very first PomPress book at NY's legendary sci/fantasy memorabilia shop, Forbidden Planet.  Seeing a book with a picture of Barnabas and Maggie on the cover was a marvelous experience in ... 1987, I think it was?

Most of the other ones since then I have bought at the Festivals.  If I needed to buy one now, I would probably just use Amazon or Abebooks.

Good luck!  Is there a phone number you could call?

Best, G.

Thanks, MB, for that capture.  I'd forgetten that that scene is staged in front of the portrait of "the first Mrs. Collins."

Another great moment is when Maggie is pouring a cup of tea for Will Loomis and the smirk on Hoffman's face as she hands him his liquor right on beat to be caught by Maggie.  Will's line about tannic acid, and Hoffman's smug expression, are priceless!

One I've been meaning to post is a rare favorite line spoken by TLATKLS.  It's from early on in the Parallel Time 1970 and Maggie is talking to Hoffman, Housekeeper from Hell:

"You're a rare woman yourself, Hoffman.  You're the only person I know who could turn an apology into a testimonial."

Classic stuff...

In general, ALL of Grayson's scenes as Housekeeper Hoffman are instant favorites.  I love her gloating whenever she talks to Maggie about "Mrs Collins."

My copy of SHE BEAST arrived last night.  I had time to preview the commentary on the disc.  It starts out with just Ian Ogilvy, an American producer and a British moderator.  When Barbara enters on screen, she also enters the commentary, and she's a total delight!  She says something like, "My Gawd, my makeup is HIDEOUS!  It stops at the neck and I'm wearing 20 THOUSAND pounds of eyelashes!"  And continues very much in that arid vein.  She and Ian Ogilvy also have some amusing badinage that I can tell is going to make this a LOT of fun to listen to.

The transfer is stunning and actually makes the movie watchable--that, in and of itself, is a miraculous accomplishment!

Midnite honey, did I really write that back in 2002?  The weird thing is--I can actually sort of recall writing that!

You score top points in super-deft internet skill for retrieving that ancient post!

Hats off (if I wore one)

I can't believe anyone would choose Rick Springfield over Geraint Wyn-Davies in the role of Nick Knight (on Forever Knight).

I didn't see Ben Cross' Barnabas listed; was he included?

I loved her stuffed cockatiel, too.

For some reason, the cockatiel seems to have migrated to Tim Stokes' flat after Hannah walked out on Alexalique.

Liz played a piece by Chopin in one of the very first episodes--no. 2 or 3, I believe.

In 1968, I believe Carolyn was heard playing Chopin in the drawing room.

In the original Art Wallace script from the 1950s, "The House," the character that eventually became Liz in the Art Wallace DS bible made extra money teaching piano to children in the village.

Current Talk '09 I / Blingmistress of Collinwood
« on: April 30, 2009, 08:36:02 PM »
Thanks to MB for the fabou portrait of Aunt Hannah today.  I just LOVE Aunt Hannah!  DS needed more characters like her! Alexalique thinks she's so damn smart, but Hannah clearly showed just who wore the BLING at Collinwood.

Hannah was such a fascinating character, and she actually had a LOT more on the ball in terms of Magick than did Alexalique.  I was very sorry that the character was written out when Grayson came back because I would have died for scenes of Hannah and Hoffman together!  There are two wonderful interviews on the DVDs with Paula Laurence in which she talks about her friendship with Sam & Grayson.

Thanks, Cassandra, for that episode number.  Hope I have time to check it out!  I agree that the Maggie/Joe courtship took shape in a beautifully paced way.  I also enjoyed how the Carolyn-going-after-Burke story was written and played, especially with Nancy Barrett acting Carolyn's emotions and need for attention in such a plausible way.

To Taeylor, the original storyline [spoiler] had Roger Collins going totally crazy at some point and admitting to having killed Bill Malloy, plus some other murders I believe.  If I recall, the final episode was going to involve a clifftop confrontation in which Roger had lured Vicki to the cliffs and intended to push her to her death on the rocks.  Instead, Roger himself ended up going literally over the edge and finding the death he had planned for the innocent Miss Winters.  I can't recall how in the original outline the issue of Vicki's parentage was resolved.[/spoiler]

  I never owned the Shadows on the Wall book--have thought about purchasing it, if it is still available.  I should check.

Best,

G.

I love that photo of Cassandra, Barn, Nicholas and Adam from '68.  It really evokes the feel and taste of that Summer for me.

Too bad Lara Parker herself has no memory of even playing Cassandra...

Thanks for sharing that MSC!  I vaguely recall that scene, but not the specifics--time to revisit!  Any idea around which episode or week?

Oh yeah--was '66 Roger ever a "douchebag"!  I'm glad, though, that Art Wallace's original outline for Roger's fate wasn't followed in the show's evolution.

Sam Hall's notes did have Maggie and Joe reuniting and getting married at the very end of the series, which perhaps was a recognition on his part of how popular the couple had been with fans.  I'm not that much of a Maggie fan, but I do enjoy the early courting scenes--1966 Maggie, like Vicki, had a LOT more on the go than the caricature to which she was later reduced.
