HI there,

definitely agree with you about Willie and Carolyn... I thought John Karlen and Nancy Barrett had fantastic chemistry together when the series finally paired them at the very end as Melanie and Kendrick.

It must have been an arrangement that worked well all around since they played a husband and wife writer team, Claire and Alex Jenkins, in the second movie, Night of Dark Shadows.  If you haven't seen this, keep an eye peeled around Halloween--it runs sometimes on USA, or one of those channels.  I just watched the movie recently, and I *loved* the look Nancy had in it.  Karlen looked great too, with longer fluffier hair--he was so hot back then *sigh*

Grayson Hall has one of her best Shadows roles ever, as the "sinister" housekeeper, Carlotta Drake.

Best, Gothick

Jean-Claude, mon cher, YOU are a Divine One in your own handsome right!

Many thanks for sharing these *gorgeous* images!  I can't wait to get hold of this.

Midnite, many thanks for posting this update.  I played the "Collinsport Serial Killer" promo, and it's excellent.  Of course, it helps that this is one of my personal favorite DS storylines!

I also had a wonderful time with "Mangelique."  I had similar thoughts about what one could do with the scene involved when I first played that video (a very happy day in Gothickland).  I had forgotten about Angelique's body movements which certainly do look, um, very sensuous.

I wish she would do a Hoffman/Angelique video!

Don, when I come to your pad, I'll definitely bring my jar of Crisco with me...
for culinary purposes, *of course.*  Why, whatever else did you think it was for?

FABULOUS!!!!!!

Hey Heather, do you worship at the shrine of Mrs Peel?  I also have a thing for Honor Blackman.  Her very first episode, done live on film in 1962, "Mr. Teddy Bear,"  has to be one of the best things The Avengers ever produced.

I'm curious as to how many fans of DS are also fans of The Avengers.  Both shows really broke the mold of what television was supposed to do back then, and both featured very strong, even aggressive women characters.

Great reporting, Prof Stokes!  It's very unusual for a Professor to have such sklll in transcribing conference proceedings *smile*

I look forward to your account of the actors presentation of "The House."  I have seen very little about it.

You look diVOON in your ensemble!  I can just hear Carson on "Queer Eye" raving about your glamorous self!

If I lived in LA, I would be SO there.  DoD is a gorgeous film.  Karlen never looked better, and Delphine Seyrig turns in a glamorous, iconic performance as the Bloody Countess, dripping with sequins.

I hope they were able to get hold of the print from which the DVD release was prepared.  It's really quite stunning.  Forget Dario Argento--THIS is how to use color in a terror film!

Thanks, Jean-Claude, for the note about the remasterings that were done for the Mystery Channel (I'm not sure that I've even heard of the Mystery Channel, so it's all news to me).

The DVD version has to look better than the tape I have, which came from a fan who taped it off a local syndicated airing about 15 or 20 years ago.

Hope I can find it at a good price!

Merci, Jean-Claude, for the original announcement, and my usual grovelling thanks to the Mysterious God for that fascinating link (I had no idea this website existed).

It's so funny that this came up, because I have been doing my own little Grayson Hall film festival, and was wondering whether a quality release of Night Gallery would ever be issued.

Unfortunately, it would seem from this site that this is not to be the case.

I do have to add a PS that in my not-so-humble opinion, Depp would be great casting for Quentin.  He has a lot of qualities that would shine in that role.

I'm sure it's just me, but I have to throw in my "two drachmae" on the endless speculations about Johnny Depp as Barnabas... I personally do not think Depp would be at all good casting for the role.  Depp is a wonderful performer but I have yet to see work from him that would have a certain edge that I think this role (as originally written, at least) calls for.

I would like to see Alec Newman's performance in the role.  From the bit of work I saw in Dune, I do think he might have the gravitas (plus a soupcon of sexuality) to make it work.

For me, the leisurely story-telling of a serial is part of the magic of Dark Shadows.  The characterizations and the way in which the emotions of the people are revealed in the most improbable situations are often central to what I regarded as the best moments of the series.  So, to me, a feature film is a less than ideal way to experience DS.

but then I'm really not all that thrilled about a remake.  At this point, I have an interest in it purely because new product is probably the only thing that will make Warners shell out the money (pocket change to them, folks--let's get real, if they toss away 5 million on a pilot?) for the restoration of Night of Dark Shadows.

Thanks for the clarifications.

It sounds as if Pierson's comments were from the realm of make-believe.  Either that, or he simply did not want to create a scene by announcing at the Festival that the New DS was once again dead in the water.

Best,  Steve

How interesting; thanks for sharing this.

I wonder whether what the guy meant is the only project they have the energy to pursue right now is the current pilot.  Perhaps the feeling in the office is that if no network wants that, they don't want to invest another 5 million (or whatever) in putting together something from scratch.

I would certainly understand if that proved to be the case.  On top of that, it may be that John Wells himself has put DS behind him and is working on new projects now.

Hi Jean-Claude,

yeah, I thought Karlen either had Alex confused with somebody else, or else that at some point, Alex had been down and out.

I thought he looked very healthy and "wore his years lightly," as the saying goes...

I think Darren did tell me, when we spoke after his presentation, that Alex was in an accident during the filming of NoDS and suffered some breaks.  Back in those days, film crews tended to be a lot less careful and far fewer safety precautions were in place.  I'll never forget a harrowing story Grayson told about the filming of Gargoyles.
