Thanks for posting this.  Peter Lombard etched a definitive portrait as Oberon in a few scenes in two episodes.  I was sorry he was not able to return for the later episode in which one of "themselves" appears.

The storyline occurred, if I recall correctly, because Dennis Patrick had to go shoot a film.  A lot of actors on DS worked without a contract, and if DCP had no contract with Dennis Patrick, there would have been no legal obligation to keep him from walking out before the Paul Stoddard storyline in Leviathans had reached its conclusion.

This led eventually to one of the most ridiculous moments in all DS production history... but that is another topic for another time...

cheers, G.

I just tried to check a detail in the interview, and the page appears now to be offline.  The webmaster may be working on the site again.

Calendar Events / Announcements '15 I / OT: Seance Day '67
« on: April 05, 2015, 12:16:59 AM »
There's a series of compilations of obscure, neglected and rare pop tracks, mostly from the 1966-71 period, called FADING YELLOW.  Listening through one of the discs today, I came across, this A side from 1967, "Seance Day," by Gaitley and Fitzgerald (otherwise unknown):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFIW-JSMzJI

The lyrics and general feel definitely made me think of DS, although as we all know, the selection on the Blue Whale jukebox was limited and, by the standards of the day, distinctly dated.

Calendar Events / Announcements '15 I / Interview with Joe Caldwell
« on: April 04, 2015, 04:32:37 PM »
Fans,

I found this interview with Joe Caldwell on a Strange Paradise website.  But there's quite a bit from Joe here about his time on DS:

http://www.strangeparadise.net/writerinterviews_caldwell.html

I wish more had been said in the interview about Cornelius Crane.  He wrote the best episodes of the entire series of SP.  Bob Costello was responsible for bringing Crane in.  I can't help wondering if Crane was a pseudonym adopted by Violet Welles... His writing has a similar calibre and attention to nuance, atmosphere, and psychodynamic use of character.

Current Talk '15 I / Re: Plotlines that ended up going nowhere
« on: March 20, 2015, 01:51:31 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, 05:12:14 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.
