Do you have kids, or grandkids?  Ask one of them to help.

Good luck!

HORROR EXPRESS circulated in public domain copies for years.  I think an official release may have finally come out a couple of years ago, but these days, it can be very difficult to tell if a release with a brand name is really "official" or not.

For what it is worth, Savalas is in most of the movie.  It's been several decades since my previous viewing though I actually have a disc for it in my personal library.

Somewhere last year on the announcements board I posted an item, I think from Billy Masters, about the problems Kate was having getting going on the book.  But 2020 is extreme by any standards.  One wonders if that was a typo.

Reportedly, when Mary Wilson of the Supremes started work on her own memoirs, she had to undergo hypnotherapy to help surface buried memories.  When she sat down to write about her life in the Sixties, she drew a complete blank.

Wow.  I remember messages like that from around 17 years ago.  Had no idea anyone was still dealing with the issue.

I'm just skimming this thread so I may be misunderstanding, but if  I am on point, it would seem that the Laura story was planned to be referenced in both the 1990 and 2004 pilots.  In both, from what I can tell, the references were almost entirely eliminated in the final versions. 

It makes me wonder whether there was more Laura material in the original Seth Graham-Johnston script for the Depp Burton confection. I saw somewhere that Seth was going to do an online Q&A about the project--a very brave individual given the kind of vitriol we know some fans will spew at him. 

Again, my following of all this has been sketchy, but although a book about the filming was published, I don't believe an edition of the 2012 screenplay has yet seen the light of day?

A friend posted a "teaser trailer" for the new season over the holidays.  Maybe tonight I'll watch it again.  Quite short.

Worth noting is that Helen McCrory, who will return as Madame Kali in the new season, is starring in THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2 from the revived Hammer studios.  It was released to theatres last Thursday.

No worries MB if you don't get to it.  With all the work you've done on this, you more than deserve a break!

Best,

I was thinking about bathrooms at Collinwood for some reason today and I realized that in hoDS, there is a scene where Carolyn has just come out of a bathroom, presumably one equipped with a shower, if I recall correctly.

Granted, the bathroom wasn't actually SHOWN.

I wonder if the original film mentioned was early 1930s.  I think Joan went brunette fairly early on in her career. 

A friend loaned me his DVD of SUSPIRIA which I have never seen all the way through.  It was Joan's last feature film.  Her final appearance before the cameras, so far as I am aware, was "This House Possessed," a 1983 TV film with Parker Stevenson.  It was a real shock to see Joan playing a half-mad bag lady wheeling a shopping cart around town in that one.

Best, G.

Glad to see the '04 slideshow is starting up again!  I'll enjoy reading at least some of it once again.

If you do have time to write about the changes in how the final scene wound up being shot and edited, I would be interested to read that.

Happy 2015!

As scripted, that scene could have been quite powerful.

I really can't think of what to say about how I remember it actually playing onscreen.  It just did not work for me.

Again, many thanks MB for this labor of love!  Happy New Year!

As for Gerard's request, we all know what the WB home video department thinks of DS... what more need be added...
