For anyone who is curious, here is the "Sweet Transvestite" number from the new version, featuring Laverne Cox:

The other big production numbers all appear to be up on Youtube as well.  I played "Time Warp" and enjoyed having a look at Reeve Carney's interpretation of Riff Raff.

It is all very energetic but something about it just does not work for me... opinions I have seen are divided between giving it an A for effort and treating it as a tired disaster zone.

This info was just posted on another site:

First episode they are showing is #251 when Barnabas locks Maggie in the basement. For some reason Decades has numbered the episode as #7116. The last episode shown will be when David informs Burke and Dr. Woodard of the mausoleum secret room. They've numbered that one as 7199.  (end quote)

I wonder if this ultimately came from somebody who has some kind of connection with Decades, because otherwise, I have no idea how the person was able to figure this out.  Those new episode numberings are strange.  I wonder whether the "7" comes from 1967 and the 116/199 refers to the actual episode number WITHIN THAT YEAR.  I don't have time to try to figure out if that would work.

Fans, I found two of the Universal "complete legacy" classic monster DVD sets in my local Newbury Comics (a media shop in the Boston area) marked down--they are used, but appear to play fine.  And so, I am watching Frankenstein vs. the Wolfman (from around 1943).  I don't remember ever seeing this one before, apart from a bit when I came into it towards the end of a TV broadcast back around 20 years ago.

Let's just say that the opening sequence, set in the Talbot family mausoleum, proved to have a very familiar look and feel to it.  You might be surprised.  I know I was.

DS definitely stole... er, borrowed... from the best.

For fans of the Universal Sherlock Holmes films (with Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce), this one includes a very Inspector Lestrade type role for actor Dennis Hoey.

That's a very cool article, MB.  Thanks!  I don't recall having read that before.

KLS and Lara did promos for the Festivals that were aired on the Sci Fi channel during the episodes.  I didn't watch very often but when I did see the broadcasts, I remember those commercials coming up a few times.

Calendar Events / Announcements '16 II / OT: BARON BLOOD (1972)
« on: October 14, 2016, 03:56:23 AM »
Fans,

This 1972 Italian-Austrian horror film, BARON BLOOD (1972), directed by legendary giallo auteur Mario Bava and starring Elke Sommer and Joseph Cotten, includes a number of examples of what I think of as "DS moments."

Just sharing it for those in search of seasonal viewing.

Thanks for posting these again, MB.  Really lovely to see.

What with this sequence and the seance, I keep asking myself why DC and Sam chose to cut some of the most atmospheric, effective moments of the movie.  Of course they had to do the work of editing out nearly half an hour, as mandated by the evil suits of MGM, in the space of a few hours...

Sounds fab!  Have a great day!

That sounds like fun, Patti!

For those who have cable, the Turner Classic Movies network is running classic horror movies all month long this year.  I did not post the link because I thought of it as OT for these boards, but I will just mention that is happening for anyone out there who has the access and wants to watch.

Some of the films being shown were mined for DS plot points, such as the Hammer Dracula cycle which they are showing one day later this month, so from that perspective it is at least semi relevant to DS.

MB, thanks so much for posting that fab video clip from the film!  I had completely forgotten about that moment. 

When I clicked on the wmv link, it downloaded to my computer.  It eventually opened using the VLC player, which was something I had to add a few years ago to cope with certain files. 

I imagine you'd need an "app" that mirrored the abilities of the VLC player on your phone to play something like that. Of course I have no idea what the requirements of the "app" would be.  For the sake of my sanity, I've been hanging on to not doing anything web related on my phone, although I currently have an "android" which I think could do it all.  The screen is so tiny though...

Thayer David appeared in two episodes of WWW--"The Night of the Samurai," which aired on Oct. 13, 1967 (and thus, a little over a month before he returned to DS in the role of Ben Stokes), in which he played a sinister Chinese (or was it a Russian who liked to dress Chinese?  I can't recall).  And "The Night of the Spanish Curse," in which he played the crazy guy impersonating the spirit of a dead Conquistador.  The latter aired on Jan. 10, 1969, but must have been filmed at some point in late 1968, I would think.

Thayer David was a very busy actor.  He may well have worked himself to death.  I did finally hear from Thayer's nephew that his passing was sudden and quite peaceful.  He sat down in a big chair to have a nap and never woke up.

Best,  G.

That is a fabulous episode.   A number of WWW episodes have a DS flavor.

Another one that makes me think of our show is "The Night of the Vicious Valentine" with Agnes Moorehead over-the-top as a VERY eccentric villainess.  That one is perhaps more reminiscent of the Diana Rigg/Patrick Macnee series The Avengers, especially this one episode called "The Murder Market."

(I always have to ploddingly say something like "The British cult TV series The Avengers from the 1960s with Patrick Macnee," yadda, now because if I just say "The Avengers," people think I'm talking about something involving comic books.)
