Sad news from Stuart Manning: DS fan Marcy Robin passed away today (Friday) from complications associated with Alzheimer's disease. We all knew Marcy as publisher of Shadowgram as well as a Festival Committee member and coordinator of its costume galas, and as a wonderful fan fiction writer. My heartfelt condolences go out to her family and friends.

Recently added to the Hollywood Show lineup at the Burbank Marriott on October 6-7:  Lysette Anthony

Thanks again, Kosmo!

I recently saw Lysette's excellent performance in "The Hollow", a Poirot movie from 2004.  She played Veronica, an actress that traveled to see the former lover she never quite got over, telling him, "Leave me again and I really will make you sorry!"  Thankfully there was no French accent.  [easter_wink]

The series is currently running on PBS So Cal, but I have no idea if other PBS stations are airing them.

"The Rose" and "Apocalypse Now" actor Frederic Forrest has passed, and I noticed today in his filmographies that one of his earliest roles was as a Blue Whale customer in 1967.  I saw ep #137 not long ago and will have to watch it again.  I had no idea!

If you have access to getTV, Diana Millay will appear in Sunday's 1963 episode of The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters called "The Day of the Skinners".  Times are 11:15 am ET and 8:15 am Pacific.

From Rotten Tomatoes: Jaimie befriends a girl (Millay) held as a servant by the leader of a group of buffalo skinners.
