That's a fun film.  Very evocative of the period.

MB, I'm glad you enjoyed the little article.  I mainly remember the Junior Soph credit from PT 1970.  It might have continued for Summer of 1970; it's been so long since I watched any of those episodes I can't recall now.

LOL, I often think of when these fans were visiting Grayson at home in '73 and they made a tape recording of their conversation.  They were talking about big stars who go to Europe and make films in the context of KLS's film career (since she had moved to Paris) and Grayson deadpanned, "Katie Scott is NOT a big star."  I always laugh when I hear that.

Some of you may find this article from 1970 about TLATKLS of interest:

They did have what looked like a car (though it might have just been a frame) on the set in the scene in 1970 where Sebastian is driving Maggie to Windcliff.  I'd guess it probably was just a partial frame because the set was so cramped and I think the actual shooting area involved stairs.  I'd have to watch it again to see how much is visible.  There was a nice photo of that scene being shot in the original MY SCRAPBOOK MEMORIES book by KLS.

When Barnabas and Vicki were in a car in 1968 it was obviously just a mock-up.  That scene always cracks me up because they obviously took Roger Davis somewhere to film him trying to flag the car down on the road.  I wonder if that was the last film (or outside video) insert they ever had in the show.  It may have been.

It could be the dude was remembering something that happened with the 1991 version.  I've read there were tons of bloopers in that even though DC proclaimed a couple of times that that version was going to be completely clean and free of mistakes. LOL

I enjoyed reading ANGELIQUE'S DESCENT once.  That was enough.  It was good until she had to write about stuff that was canon.  I don't know why she didn't just ask a fan who is also a writer to go through that part and correct it for her.  Doesn't she realize there are several qualified people who would have been happy to do it free of charge?

I haven't bothered with the other ones.

Oh gawd.  That stuff was from Parker?  I should have known...

If I were more than just a rather remote bystander in fandom now, I'd have to read those things just to keep up with how people are re-conceptualizing the story.  Fortunately, I don't take the drugs that would be required to get through that stuff.

So would I, of course.

I'd always wondered how much of an impact this may have had on Sam Hall and Gordon Russell's scripts for the 1795 storyline.  Looks as if it had a pretty strong impact, judging from what I was able to watch briefly this morning.

Thayer and Clarice both have great scenes.  I don't know if they're in it much after the first part, though.

Calendar Events / Announcements '17 II / THE CRUCIBLE (1967)
« on: July 06, 2017, 04:31:10 PM »
A friend alerted me that the 1967 TV production of Arthur Miller's play THE CRUCIBLE, starring George C. Scott and Colleen Dewhurst, has been posted online, and I found the link.  Thayer David shows up around the 4:45 mark and Clarice Blackburn follows shortly thereafter.  They play a couple, the Putnams.  Kathy Cody is also on hand, along with many other regulars from the television shows of the period--Henry Jones is stalwart, as always.  The link:

Link is to a Vimeo file--those seem to require higher internet speed and a bit more memory than Youtube.

That's a rather creative synopsis of the main narrative of the show.  Also, I still don't think I've ever seen some of these bloopers people talk about.  I remember a stagehand seen going behind a flat that had a window on it, on the OH set I think, in 1795 possibly, but not a glimpse of a modern car on the set during that period.  I also don't think Bil Baird's puppet bore any resemblance to a sock.  It looked like a cool bat puppet that might have gotten lost flying around Vampira's lair back in the Fifties and eventually found its way to Collinsport.

Thanks for the link, MB!

I was just on youtube looking for the Robert Cobert composition "Joanna," subsequently used as the title theme (and lovers' theme) for NoDS, and I found this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRkVySyOXA0

There are some photos here I've either never seen, or maybe only seen once.  Cool!

The shot of Clarice Blackburn and Monica Rich I'd particularly love to get a closer look at.  There is also at least one of the funny publicity shots that Chris Pennock did with Nancy.  Of course they didn't have any scenes together in the movie.

I would love a gallery of naked Joe Haskell from '04.  But I think that would have to be posted on the naked macrame DS fan site...

That's fascinating to read about Mark.  Thanks for sharing that, Bob.

Gorgeous work on the '04 pilot background for July.

GIRL FROM UNCLE is a bit of an oddity, even by the standards of 1967.  Most of the episodes are wildly campy, but there are a few, particularly the earlier ones, that are played straight.  There's this one that features Wally Cox as a professional killer.  It was a really well written story and Cox turned in a subtle, rather creepy performance. 

"My Bulgarian Baby" and Mother Muffin are definitely out there, but the campiest of them all might be this one with Margaret Leighton as this insane Countess determined to become the #1 THRUSH agent.  I've played that one maybe three times in recent years.  A friend of mine sent me the entire series from old 1980s syndication broadcasts about five years ago. 

Would still love to get the pro DVD set but every time I check, it's priced really high.

I saw Stefanie Powers do a this play in which she portrayed Tallulah Bankhead a few years ago.  The play is called LOOPED.  And the weird thing about it is the set-up is Tallu has to re-loop a line of dialogue for DIE, DIE MY DARLING, the 1965 Hammer film she did opposite--Stefanie Powers.  Stefanie was astonishingly good in the role.
