I love episode 714.  It was a favorite of Louis Edmonds', as well; he used to refer to it as their version of "The Little Foxes" (the Lillian Hellman play, filmed starring Bette Davis, although Tallulah Bankhead had been iconic in the Judith Collins role in it on the stage).

Yes, Maggie carried a purse during the infamous Josette's Earrings scenario.

And dear Cassandra, of course, sometimes had a smart bag in which she concealed some of her nasties.

When it comes to handbags, as in so many areas, JULIA RULES!

but I'm not prejudiced or anything.

Forget Anita (Divine though She is), I'd model myself after Judith Merle/Jody Moore in The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Current Talk '04 II / Elizabeth Collins Stoddard: the DVD (in my dreams)
« on: October 25, 2004, 03:21:36 PM »
I awoke this a.m. from a dream in which I was attending a DS Festival and doing a bunch of Grayson related interviews... I happened to be in the vendors room and spotted a DVD that was fan-produced.  It was a compilation of classic scenes from Liz's various storylines, heavily concentrating on 1966-67.  What a marvelous idea! I thought in the dream, and the thought stayed with me when I woke up.

When I went to bed I was thinking about the scene (from 1966, I think) when Liz tells Vicki a ghost story, and how much I would enjoy watching that again, given the season.  I don't think I own that tape, sadly.  It was on an MPI compilation tape that was called Ghosts and Vampires, which I never purchased.  I will have to look up in my episode guide and see if I can order the Collectors Choice tape with that scene.

Wouldn't it be great if they did a series of "greatest moments of..." DVDs at some point?  When MPI started putting the series out on VHS in 1989, they did a couple of short compilation tapes, including one called the Best of Barnabas, but the footage selected for the tape did not really live up to the title (in my not-so-humble opinion).

This is the kind of project I could see DS to DA and Heather collaborating upon with great results.

Wow, Victoria, that was a fabulous review.  I've never read the novel, so I appreciated your references to that.

Literate storytelling really isn't in vogue, is it?  I have to admit that what you write of the cast makes me salivate.  I just watched the 1965 film, Dr. Terror's House of Horrors--Donald Sutherland was incredibly sharp (and gorgeous to look at) with very limited material in that.

I've been checking the boards for reviews from fans who watched the Newman Frankenfurter--thought it aired last week???

Was it so bad we've decided to just forget it ever aired???

It was so funny to have this show up on the TV set as my roommate and I were getting ready to run that evening's rental--the DVD of Taste the Blood of Dracula.  As fate would have it, when I had the movie on it was the scene where the Undead Lucy is trying to lure her fiance into her embrace.  It was obviously a send-up of several similar scenes from classic Hammer films.  Unfortunately I didn't bother continuing to watch, so I missed the actual staking (I find the pacing of Mel Brooks later work really uneven, in a distracting way--there was some gag or other he was dragging out unnecessarily in this sequence, which made it all too easy for me to switch to my movie).

DS to DA, these are brilliant.   I never watched Y & R so I don't "get the joke," but I think what you have created is beautiful.  I enjoyed both a lot, but of course my favorite is the first one--gotta love JAB!

That photoshop program with which you created the "sketches" produced marvelous work.  The close-up of Grayson's face from the TV Guide article is particularly impressive.

your fan, Gothick

Congratulations and hearty hugs to MB, Midnite and dom!

What else can I say but "you light up my life" (hmm, that would make an excellent soundtrack to a fan video of Ang torching sequences...)

I'd enjoy seeing this again.  I do recall watching it back in the day and being glued in the tube.  IIRC, the main demon or whatever was named Sargon which is odd, to say the least,since Sargon was a king (of Akkad, I think), NOT a demon.

I remember enjoying the banter between Thinnes and his middle-aged buddy--probably if I watched now, I would find it as derivative and plunky as you say, though.

Wonder whether this has been released by MPI?

Funny that Patti mentioned Chris P coming in drag.  He did appear in drag in the Merchant-Ivory early Seventies film, Savages (in an ensemble cast which also included Thayer David).

Mistress Julia!!!  I love it!!!

You're the only one besides me so far that I have heard of writing Julia-as-Dominatrix stories.  I participated in a round robin years ago where Julia became a vampire and I got to write her first appearance.  I kitted her up in this leather outfit, complete with boots and car-coat, and had a huge amount of fun with it.  I'm sure Grayson would have found it a HOOT, given her impatience with Julia's "straight-a$$" ways.

I wonder whether the good Doctor was thoughtful enough to provide her "patient" with knee-pads? LOL!!!

Just watched again and my admiration grows and grows.  I love the montage recalling earlier phases of  B & J's relationship (the one where she brushes her hair lightly with her fingers is so endearing), the way you edited the B & J scenes from this storyline, the wonderful Julia/Ang catfight, and that killer ending!

So when are we going to see 1995: Divided Loyalties? (or whatever)

A Fan Forever,

Steve

Thanks for posting that link.  Newman's comments on the DS pilot really hit the mark, particularly his words about backstage politics...

I keep going back to today's Montage (featuring the Many Screams, Shrieks, and Hurlings of Miss Sabrina Stuart) and just plain CACKLING.

My fedora is off to El Mysterioso yet again!
