Daniel: They haven't gotten to Miss Winters trial today cousin Naomi, because they had't finished the trial on some French guy named Jean Valjean that cousin Joshua was also testifying against.
Naomi: Joshua detests pastry thieves.

Calendar Events / Announcements '06 I / Re: Dan Curtis Has Died
« on: March 29, 2006, 03:47:06 PM »
I find it VERY disconcerting  [dsapg] that the death of Dan Curtis was not mentioned on my local ABC television and radio station news programs.  I think the passing of Dan Curtis is VERY IMPORTANT, and deserves to be mentioned by them.  Especially since Dark Shadows, Winds of War, and War and Rememberance originally aired on ABC TV.  ::)[/size]
I have been disappointed by the lack acknowledgement of Dan's passing. I don't think Entertainment Tonight even mentioned it. It took two days to get the brief bottom of the news column on IMBD, I was so frustrated with them I emailed them yesterday to remind them of their omission. Honestly, I think Hoyt Curtain's passing got better notices.  (He was the compoer of themesongs and music for Hannah Barbera cartoons. All the radio news stations were playing the "Scooby Doo" theme.) Dan's work is too significant for the scant mentions.

Just curious, outside of this board and the AOL news, has anyone seen much mention of Dan's passing in the general media. As of this morning, almost 9:00 am ET, its not on the IMDB, and was not on last evening's "Entertainment Tonight" or ABC news. I did not hear it mentioned on any radio news coming to work today. Has anyone noted it trickling out to the media?

Not to be cruel or insensitive, but Johnny Carson's death seem to linger on for weeks on ET. Can't Dan get a mention?

I am feeling a little shocked and stunned. I like many here feel great sympathy for the Curtis family.
        I think that Dan got a bit of our enthusiasm and admiration for his work when he appeared at the director's guild. I'm sorry he never got to a full festival to see how far that extended. While like everyone here, Dark Shadows is my favorite, but I also have such a fondness for his other Gothic pieces and on down from "Jekyll and Hyde" through "The Love Letter."
        I hope the industry itself acknowledges the loss of one of its true mavericks. Who knows, maybe there's making a great new Kolchak film for us at the great studio in the sky.

Current Talk '06 I / Re: Roger Davis: Most and Least favorite
« on: March 27, 2006, 05:58:39 PM »
Yes, its not the one with Sherilyn Fenn.  [thumb] "Ruby" (1977) with Roger Davis also has a nice performance by Piper Laurie. I found the DVD after speaking with Curtis Harrington at a FANEX show in Hunt Valley (near Baltimore) I will probably bring it with me to the fest this year. (I often wonder if the fest people are looking for copies of things like this or "Seizure" if they want to show them in the evenings. I'd be happy to lend them for a showing.)
       This is the DVD that has hilarious erroneous information in the cast and credits area, confusing DS Roger Davis with another actor of the same name who's career went back to the silent era, and listing his work with our Roger's, as well as the older actor's DOB and date of his passing.  I remember asking Roger if he'd seen the DVD, and saying to  him how, "That according to the DVD you passed away in 1980, but many of us appreciate that your death has not prevented you from continuing to attend the festivals."   ::)   [grim]

I don't know, BTW, who loves our portable DVD player more, Diane or myself. They are great toys!
