dom, that would be so beyond awesome.

Of course, Talking Liz would pose regally in the model stance. Next question: is the hair the tiara up-do of 1967, or the Lady Bird Johnson Hair Helmet look of 1969-70? Decisions, decisions!

If anyone finds the clip or images from the scene where Constantine appeared wearing only a bath towel, please post in this thread.

Especially if you find images from the reported outtakes where the towel kept slipping off Matt Ryan...

This does not seem to have mentioned in the latest ShadowGram but is making the rounds on "social media" today.

You've heard of Talking Tina, but are you ready for "Talking Barnabas"?

I really hope one of the "soliloquies" is Barnabas uttering the immortal words, "Tonight must go nothing wrong!"

What I have heard from people who watched it is that this series was more of a psychological drama about traumatized people (maybe members of the same family, I am not sure) with a few horror stylings to dress it all up as a ghost story.

Seems to have nothing in common with the novel or the original film beyond the title.

Joe Certa's attempts at drawing Julia in the old Gold Key comics often looked like Paul Lynde in a bad wig and worse earrings.

This is on the Me TV site but seems to be promoting the start of DECADES broadcasting our show:

https://www.metv.com/lists/7-spellbinding-things-you-didnt-know-about-lara-parker-from-dark-shadows

There's a shot of Lara in the Burton/Depp film I do not recall having seen before. No doubt it's familiar to those of you who are fans of that thing.

Nice to see.

Memory cheats but I honestly don't recall ever being confused about what was happening on the show. I have read that the writers and everyone else got confused. I finally understood that when it was explained in the PomPress books that they regularly taped the shows way out of order.

Also, this article repeats the standard story that the plug was pulled by the network because of low ratings, when in fact the ratings were going up again in the final couple of months. As I have noted many times in the past, my personal view was the Dan Curtis himself told the network he was done. Of course, just how he got them to agree to that since presumably he was under contract to produce the show for them, is a mystery I doubt we will ever solve--minus help from the I Ching wands, of course.

Hard to believe this was 51 years ago!

Quote:

1967: On Dark Shadows, Dr. Julia Hoffman's (Grayson Hall) experiments with Barnabas Collins' (Jonathan Frid) blood went terribly awry and his youthful appearance reverted to that of a 175-year-old vampire. The horribly disfigured Barnabas accused Julia of having taken revenge on him after he rebuffed her romantic overtures. Julia denied the charge, but reveled in the fact that Barnabas had to cancel his pending rendezvous with Vicki.

I'm just remembering Julia's egging Barnabas on to attack Vicki in one of the two Old Barnabas scripts. Julia's character is written really inconsistently in those two shows. I still have no idea what was going on there.

A friend sent this to me, as Tommy Keene was a favorite singer-songwriter of his. I gather Mr. Keene is no longer among the living. Perhaps he's watching Dark Shadows in that eternal video lounge Beyond.

I'm not a fan of the "modern" horror film, at all. But I think George Romero, Tobe Hooper, and William Friedkin actually invented the beast, for better or worse. The directors mentioned in the blurb for the Paley Center event elaborated on this new horror arena characterized by such elements as body horror, extreme gore, splatter, etc. Romero's decomposing zombies of 1967, Hooper's violent chainsaw massacres and Friedkin's onscreen torture of Linda Blair's body were what set the tone for what was to come.

Just my two drachmae.

That's hilarious about that screening. Dysfunctional much?

I have to admit I love the new music video. I loved seeing KLS as Liz and the fact that Miss Scott wore a gown given to her by THE Mistress of Collinwood makes it all the more special. I do wonder how some fans will react to the scenario portrayed in the film. Great casting for Barnabas.

Also, the star has GREAT hair... but then, I'm a huge ginger fan.

Interesting. I wonder if Christine is a fan of last year's indie underground hit, THE LOVE WITCH (which I didn't think was a very good movie, but it had great sets and costumes). Her look seems quite reminiscent of the title character in that film.

Calendar Events / Announcements '18 / Greystone--nice photos
« on: October 12, 2018, 05:43:21 PM »
Interesting article about Greystone, with really nice photos of various rooms of the interior as well as the grounds. I didn't know the estate had been used as a shooting location for the Bette Davis film DEAD RINGER (1964)--a delightful film.

GHOST STORY/CIRCLE OF FEAR is a mixed bag--like many anthology shows (and most non-anthology shows). For me, the introductions by Sebastian Cabot are a highlight, but those were phased out after the first few weeks or months--can't remember how many were made with Sebastian.

Only 23 episodes were produced in total so when they say 42 shows, presumably some will be repeated.

I don't know if they make cuts and speed up some of the scenes, as has happened with other programs that ran around 52 minutes in the old hour slot from this period, when they get shown on such channels as DECADES. I guess if you have no other way of seeing it, it's better than nothing. At one time, I believe there were several episodes from GHOST STORY available on Youtube.

Oh good! I hope you are able to see "Warlock."

Best, G.
