Current Talk '06 I / Re: Actors' Accents (Was Re: Episode #0258)
« on: June 23, 2006, 05:56:16 PM »
Ron Barry's interview with the Shadows stars is available on one of the commercial soundtrack releases.  I can't recall whether it's on Rhino or Varese Sarabande.  It is the one that has the 1969 Original Soundtrack album and the interview (a slightly edited version) follows as an extra.  That might be the one that included a Ron Barry phone interview with David Selby, as well.
I think the interviews on Bobubas's discs are more extensive and have more separate segments, including one with Thayer David by himself and I believe one if not two of Frid by himself. Anyway, you get lots of good stuff not on the Anniversary disc. Very recommended! [banana2]

Just a reminder, Lara is in the very early Braine DePalma film, "Hi Mom" which I have some quibbles with, but its the only place I've heard her use her Tennessee accent. Her sons very briefly appear as well.
    Is Lara still married to Jim Hawkins? He  also appeared on  the original "Kolchak".

Hi Gothick, thanks for asking. I will be happy to answer your question. The choice of last night had more to do when the Lodge room was available than any significance as to when it appears in the earth year. It was just coincidence. I can say in the old days, ie prior to electricity, Lodges were held on nights of the full moon, but this was to allow evening travels rather than any lunar worship. Some very old Lodges still adhere to that meeting schedule out of tradition.   [2Bats]  I am in the final stages of my training to be a Worshipful Master of my Lodge next year, and last night was an important training exercise. A Worshipful Master is leader of his Lodge for one year terms. usually most people serve one year and then their title becomes Past Master. In some cases if no one is ready to move up, you may remain for a second term, but this is not common. Anyway, the big "secrets" are in the details of the rituals and I wish I could tell you I had learned the true identity of Jack the Ripper or I could fix next year's Oscars, but that just isn't what we really do. Its really must more of a spiritual fraternity. Also, just to clarify, we allow any monotheistic religions to our membership. We have Muslims, Christian and Jews. One Lodge here in Richmond used to be almost entirely Greek Orthodox. Not to go too far off on the subject, but I am happy to answer pretty much anything.  (I do have a DS related post on this coming up... ;) )

I used to really like the "David Collins" theme, which was rather moody with french horns and made me think of the old Universal films. I think they also used it for Adam's theme for a while.   [frankie]

Am I too late? If not I would be happy to purchase one or ask you to bring one to the Fest for me. I had a big Masonic ritual last night so I was away from the internet all evening. The disc sounds great.

Buzz: Hey Daddy-O, when I said could you spare a dime, I didn't mean it literal like.
Jason: Last time you said you needed bread, and I gave you one of Mrs. Johnsons rolls...

Roger: Really Quentin, I'm not going to accept the fashion opinion of someone who orders his suits from the mail order department of Argosy,  besides, Orson Bean looks positively dashing in HIS ascots. Get hip, man!   [pimp]

David (thinking) Yeah, sure this coat looks okay, but wait til I invent velcro and I won't have to wear something with these  attachments and their Freudian implications.   :o

Now Willie my boy,some advice. You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit in the wind. You don't pull the mask off the Lone Ranger, and you DON'T EVER TOUCH MY FREAKIN' GUINESS!!! Now you're in for a Donneybrook!  [a0a0]

Voiceover: It was a Thursday morning. The trail was colder than my ex-wife's kiss. It was raining outside when I checked the dank celler. If nothing else, I now knew the fate of the previous private dick on the case... [/color]

Little bit of trivia, Dan Curtis's "The Love Letter" was filmed in and around Richmond. Of course, I now kick myself for not trying to drop by and just shake Curtis's hand and for that matter, Gerritt Graham's, who's a personal favorite character actor and played Jennifer Jason Leigh's father in the film. Like yourselves, I immediately thought of the connection between the films.

Well, I'm already on record as saying how important I feel David Henesy is, not only as David Collins, but as Jamison.  [gramophone] The most recent episodes i watched were those where Jamison was possessed by Count Petofi. Henesy is marvelous in the way he manages to channel Thayer David without doing a cheap or easy impression. He could be creepy, a pain in the ass, sincere or vulnerable depending on exactly what was called for.
     Denise was probably the other best child. She managed to do pretty good jobs with a sufficient range. She was really quite good when at looking genuinely scared. Denise is Dark Shadow's Wednesday Addams.
      My third place would be Michael Maitland. I think he has kind of a cross between "Christopher Walken as a child" and the kid who plays Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films.   [a233]
      As a southerner, Alexander's accent puts me off my hush puppies. Sharon Smythe wasn't as naturally talented as Denise, but she did well enough. Lastly, while I can understand why Kathy Cody's roles can irritate people, and the Jan Brady thing  [flower]  is right on, I think she was also a victim of the "if its worth doing, its worth OVERDOING" era of Henry Kaplan directed episodes. For my money, one of the best and favorite moments of the series is where  [ghosty] [spoiler]David and Hallie are taken over in full possession by Tad and Carrie. Its genuinely spooky and one of the series best moments of the horror of loss of identity.  [grim] Performed well by both.[/spoiler]
