After missing last year, Diane and I are looking very forward to being back. We plan on arriving Thursday and not leaving until Monday morning. Looking forward to seeing Jonathan and John K together.  As always, a great DS festival is like a fun family reunion of people you're just not blood related to, lol. Less than a week away!  [ghost_smiley]

Michael and Diane

Hope you had a fantastic and very cosmopolitan evening! [beer]

We got a mention on the "Creepy Classics and Monster Bash News"


Hi all,
Yes, we're still around somewhere.  [snow_wink] Just curious who else is going to the play here? Diane and I have some fairly good seats for this Saturday's (2/21/09) matinee. I'll try to get a few photos if allowed around the theatre itself.
        Diane and I visited Ford's last in 2005. On the anniversary of Lincoln's assassination. Even at that time we were in the museum then in the basement noting which sculptures had the best resemblances to our dear David.
        BTW, we hope to back at this summer's festival. (But that's another topic, let's stay on the theatre topic here.)


Hello Penny D,
         I am delighted and very happy for you on your well deserved recognition. Looking forward to seeing you at Monster Bash. I want to say Monster Bash is a great show and I think anyone on the boards here who love the Golden Age of Gothic Horror films will have a great time there. I look especially forward to meeting Hazel Court this year. (Hammer's "Curse of Frankenstein" and two AIP Poe films, or was it three?  [easter_grin])
         I hope everyone remembers to vote in the Rondo's when they come up again next year. I got a nice reply and I also nominated Jonathan Frid for their Hall of Fame. Maybe next year together we can get him in.

All the very best Patti. Hope you had a great and special day.

Hello Amanda,
          It was very nice to be able to meet you as well. I enjoyed our conversation very much.
          I would say to all that the laid back atmosphere of the Williamsburg show allowed me to chat with Roger off and on through the day. Roger was quite popular at the show, as he said "It's more people than I had expected." The Williamsburg show gets a little bigger each year, but still an easy going and very enjoyable show. Roger and I chatted not only about DS and the DS festival, but we also talked about "Ride the Wild Surf", his work with the late Curtis Harrington and of course his housing business. We also shared memories of the World Trade Center.
          Roger has had some surgery and has lost over 30 lbs. since I last talked to him. He was still in good spirits and recognized me from metting him at several previous DS shows.
          The other guests we quite nice too, most especially Lee Meriwther and her daughter, and Gregory Walcott. In fact, I think I could have enjoyed a long tome chatting with Greg Walcott who really has had quite a career, "I've made films with , Charlton Heston, Henry Fonda, Gregory Peck, Gene Hackman and Lee Marvin. I've done four with Clint Eastwood. But what do I get 100s of letters about from around the world, Ed Wood!'
          Well, being the convention addict, next stop Chiller in May.
         I did get a nice photo with Roger but I'm having some technical issues with the PC and the camera appears to have been lost or stolen since the show. Wish me luck.  [easter_tongue]

Hello Patti,
Diane isn't going this time. She was going until Ben Murphy canceled his appearance. I'm going with "Dale" and "Boomhauer."
Guess that makes me "Hank", doggone it. We have a new digital camera, so lemme play with it.

Wow!  [snow_cheesy]
This is a good line up. Diane and I may reconsider sitting this year out after all. Flying to LA from Virginia is well, not as much fun these days but what i really missed about last year's show is seeing Jonathan and John Karlen together.

BTW, I know Jonathan does not plan on being in the 1968 recreation, but wouldn't he make a fine Nicholas Blair  [snow_wink]

Hope everyone is doing well.

Hello Board
Just a reminder Roger Davis will be one of the guests at The Williamsburg Film Fest the weekend of March 6-8, that's Thursday through Saturday. Other guests include Lee Meriwether, Gregory Walcott (Ed Wood's "Plan 9 from Outer Space"), Richard Devon (AIP's "Blood for Dracula" 1957, and a ton of other stuff) and Jacqueline Scott. At least three guests appeared on Twilight Zone

Here the link's

rather a fun low key show that focuses on the western genre, but a lot of the guests have some SciFi/Horror/Classic TV in their resumes.
