Current Talk '15 I / Re: Plotlines that ended up going nowhere
« on: March 20, 2015, 02:51:31 AM »
Frederick Thorne was mentioned in this thread.  I guess I am mis-remembering that he was one of Quentin's alternate identities, assumed during his long life... the identity before Grant, I guess is what I had thought.

The most blatant example that comes to mind at the moment of plotline buildups that went nowhere was Gerard as the master of a savage crew of pirates aboard the Java Queen.  I think there was even mention in 1970 of Daphne and Gerard having forbidden trysts aboard the ship.  Presumably during the long weekend when they had to plot the 1840 storyline, they quickly realized that trying to stage all this in the studio would have been impossible.

Mr. Best has gone down the great hall off the lobby between the worlds.

May Emory Bass know true peace.  He was a wonderful actor.

A second batch was released today, and I think the link for the story should be posted on the page above, if you scroll down.

Have you seen the new posters for season 2, MB?  There's one of Josh that's quite... memorable...

It's the artistry. Yeah, that's the ticket.  The dramatic artistry.

May he rest in peace.

Before I began corresponding with Kosmo, I used to think I knew a lot of obscure actors.  Now I simply laugh at the thought.

Calendar Events / Announcements '15 I / Humbert Allen Astredo Interview
« on: February 16, 2015, 06:12:14 AM »
Fans,

A friend pointed me to this fascinating recording of an interview with Humbert Allen Astredo taped last year:

http://www.collinsporthistoricalsociety.com/2014/03/podcast-humbert-allen-astredo.html

Please note that only the last 3 minutes or so of the interview has any DS material (and it's pretty limited).  The one interesting fact to remark is that the character of Nicholas Blair was written FOR Humbert because he came in for an audition--for Peter Bradford, believe it or not, back in January of '68--and Dan Curtis happened to be present, and liked Humbert so much that he told the writers to create a character for him.  The right opportunity didn't come along until later that year, in the Summer--but what a plum role it was. 

I do not know if the interview was done with the proviso that very little of the time would be taken up with DS.  Granted that Humbert's career has largely involved the theatre and some amazing roles and experiences as he describes in this, I find that entirely comprehensible.

Humbert also mentions that he knew Grayson socially before working on the show.  Again, this is a pattern I've heard from others.  The girl got around!

I found the interview a delightful diversion on this snowbound, bitterly cold evening here in Medford, Mass. (Former residence of Thayer David!)

The 1989 Woman in Black is a wonderful film.  It includes one of the scariest scenes I've ever known.  I literally jumped when it happened.

I have yet to see the Radcliffe adaptation.

That's a fascinating story, Murph.  My Mom banned DS after she saw an episode with me when we were taking one of our trips in this trailer my Dad would hitch to the back of the car.  The trailer was called a "Frolic" and it had all these typical late Sixties fittings with a lot of fabrics never found in nature.  Anyway on one of the trips we took a little black and white TV set and I was able to watch DS.  It was during 1897 and it was the episode where Judith is attacked by the werewolf and Beth saves her because she has the pentagram and knows how to use it.  My Mom was shocked which seems funny in retrospect, but Mom hates violent films and shows.  So she told me I had to stop watching it.  For some months I watched in secret.  DS was responsible for my first act of defiance against parental authority.  I still get a giggle out of that.  After some time had passed, she no longer cared whether I watched it or not because she was too busy with her job and other things.

I saw it as a single feature showing at a long-dead movie theatre in Aberdeen, Maryland. 

I'm not sure just what that guy was on but I hope he enjoyed it.

This site has more props from the Burton/Depp film for sale:

http://www.propstore.com/movie/dark-shadows/

Angelique's conjure doll is shown on a feature about the sale and I thought that had been sold quite some time ago.  I have no idea how legitimate all of this is.

Yay!  Go Matthew Martin!

He's yet another outstanding member of Grayson's Legion!
