Grayson looks as if Julia is having a severe attack of gastritis in the "Dave ... is dead?" scene.  LOVE it.

Here's a hilarious trailer for Deathmaster:

I remember Quarry doing the maniacal laugh shtick in Count Yorga, too.

have fun!

Current Talk '09 I / LeviaLiz
« on: February 25, 2009, 12:56:50 AM »
Just a thank you to MB for allowing us to enjoy the spectacle of LeviaLiz in all her glamorous glory giving Willie a FREEZING reception upon his historic return to Collinwood in 1970.  This has to be one of my all time favorite scenes on DS--poor dear Willie is completely unaware of just how very little Liz cares about the fact that he's returned or anything he's saying.  Truly priceless!

I wonder whether we'll get at least one more capture from the Leviathan era before the 1970 bits switch to Parallel Time?

cheers, G.

Just read the obit and am happy to hear that the purported animosity between Quarry and Price did not exist in real life.

It was fascinating to learn of his friendships with such artists as Joseph Cotten and Katharine Hepburn--clearly, there was something special about him.

I love the seance sequence at the beginning of Count Yorga Vampire.  That, and the scene where the Count, attired in a smoking jacket and a very frosty smile, is "entertaining" the two protagonists who have been unwise enough to enter his home, I actually found reminiscent of similar sequences on DS.  I thought the film slithered rapidly downhill from a rather promising start.  For years, I had thought that it was the fault of the hack job the censors had done on the CBS Late Movie broadcast print, but a few years back I finally got to see the original, uncut release film and it was still cheesy, slipshod, amateurish work.

My personal favorite Quarry performance is as Darius Beiderbecke in Dr. Phibes Rises Again.  Although Quarry and Vincent Price did not get along very well (due to some busybody who "helfpully" told Price that Quarry was being groomed as his "replacement" at AIP), they had a wonderful chem together onscreen.  They acted together as well in Madhouse, which is out on DVD now but I have yet to catch up with.  I saw it on VHS in the 90s and was distinctly underwhelmed, despite the fab cast--Peter Cushing and Adrienne Corri also appear--Corri probably has the best scenes of anyone in this.

There was a really good print interview of Quarry in one of the mags some years ago.  His departure has yet another "end of an era" ring to it.

OMG, KLS plays "Nurse Evans"!  Somebody in the bulletin boards on the IMDB reported that KLS claims the character's name is a coincidence, but if so, it's one worthy of how the screenplay for the movie sounds.

Interesting cast... Timothy Bottoms is in it as well ... and the plot revolves around bizarre dream sequences, with lots of weird props... sounds like a topic for one of Philippe's Six Degrees of DS Separation posts!

Thanks Midnite for posting this notice.  I'd never even heard of the film.

Best,

I'm actually sorry I missed seeing the Laura floatie (I was busy shepherding a friend from Nova Scotia around town).  I just love her truly, epically EEE-vil expression in that image!

It looks as if Barnabas Jr really takes after his namesake in the Cursed dept.!

MB Dahling,

those images of Boss Buzz are fan-f**king-tabulosa!  Thanks so much!

I do remember that in the episode where Nicholas goes to Hell *wink*, the later scenes are at Collinwood and his big showdown with Julia.  I can remember that they had pumped up so much brimstone for Hell's Head Office that the drawing room looked almost as foggy as Eagle Hill cemetery.  In that one I think I did hear poor Grayson having one of her hacking fits while offscreen at one point. 

Also, of course, Maggie Evans' cottage and the Collinsport Inn were in Essex, CT--perhaps your friend had a vague memory or had heard about the crew's visit in 1966 and inflated (or conflated) it all into "Collinwood" itself having been located there.

Point taken, Brian; but some of Corman's stuff was really fine, especially some of the Sixties films.

It would seem from my viewing of the Lair #1 and the accounts of the shooting schedules that was called for, more than anything else, is a highly competent technician with the ability to log maximum minutes of footage per day.  Ray seems capable of filling that bill.

What an honor and a thrill for David and his family!  I'm sure David's performance was brilliant, as always.

Counter-culture?  Don't forget DS' very own Wild One, the incomparable Buzz Hackett, complete with bomber jacket, boots, stubble, and a hairpiece that resembled barely-taxidermed roadkill.

In the words of the Master, 'if ya feel it, sit it!"

Finally had time to go look at the blog; all very interesting.  Barbara Steele worked on a project with Fred Olen Ray at some point in the 90s and praised him to the skies--she's very demanding, so you know he MUST be excellent!

It's exciting to hear that Sybil Danning is going to have a role in the Lair, season 3.  I think many DS fans would enjoy Danning's work in the early 1980s film The Howling 2.  She's outrageously campy in it and wears fabulous costumes!

I'm getting quite a charge out of today's screen capture of Jebulous and Pruno heatedly conferring in a darkened foyer at Collinwood.  I am old enough to remember when these shaggy coats and bits of woolly trim were fashionable on men's winter coats, but I'm still thinking of these two as "the ranch poodle brigade" and I'm wondering whether Bruno's hairpiece ever went flying when push came to shove.

Thanks again MB for brightening another dreary Winter afternoon here at the Great House!

cheers, G.
