Karlen's role is confined to the fourth part of the episode.  You're not missing all that much to just watch this bit as a stand-alone:

Current Talk '13 II / Re: Quentin's Theme/DS Music
« on: September 27, 2013, 10:09:20 PM »
I do listen to DS music from time to time. I often enjoy it particularly around the current season of Autumn and Halloween.  I would find the insanity of "the Holidaze" in Nov.-Dec. easier to bear if we could have DS music selections playing over PA systems instead of those tacky "carols."  I realize this may seem odd to some.

From what I have read of some particular dates on the calendar of the "Holiday" season, particularly 12:01 a.m. on Black Friday when they open the doors at Walmart and polite people get trampled by the crazed mobs of soccer moms desperate to own the latest shiny electronic toy, some of the DS tracks, particularly the werewolf attack music, would make the perfect backdrop to the mayhem on hand...

Patty Duke is always such fun... as long as one can ignore that she was, from what she wrote 20 or so years later, miserable while she was doing all of this.

Robert Foxworth... *rrrowrrr*

Josette, here's the link for the Youtube upload of the episode, taken from a Chiller network broadcast:

Hi Josette, it was originally an episode of the Gary Collins series (I'm probably the only person here who still remembers Gary Collins, lol), The Sixth Sense.  When Night Gallery went into syndication in the early 1970s, it was syndicated in a half hour format even though it was an hour show.  For some reason the decision was taken to combine 25 minute edits of Sixth Sense episodes even though those were full hour long stories, so the edits wound up being hack jobs.  If you saw the "Night Gallery" syndie version of "Through a Flame Darkly," there's no guarantee that all of John's scenes would even have survived the editing process--which is a risk in general with a lot of current repeats of old Sixties and Seventies shows, given that the current standard is about 43 minutes of programming per hour of air time.

The Sixth Sense was not nearly as successful as Night Gallery, and a lot of Night Gallery fans resent like hell the intrusion of Sixth Sense material into the packets of NG episodes.  I always enjoy the chance to see Sixth Sense--a lot, possibly all, of the episodes were up on Youtube last time I checked.

I don't remember this image at all from this part of the movie (which, again, I saw once, at home on DVD, so I may have happened to look away or grab another snack at some moment).

I keep thinking that this particular story idea must have been inspired by the Lady Kitty storyline in the original series, but it plays out so differently, I wonder if that's the case.

I frankly had difficulty connecting with or knowing how to evaluate this whole sequence of Magtoria speaking about her early life with the montage going on.  There was, for me, a twee, brittle, uncomfortably fancy-pants (given the serious subject matter of a young girl in the 1950s being institutionalized by her parents) element in how it was all presented visually that made me wonder if Burton was deliberately parodying how mental illness is traditionally presented in certain films.

Very cool.  Bil Baird's marionettes were all over the place in the Sixties and the Seventies but I don't ever recall seeing a photo of Bil or his wife before.

I don't know if anybody will see or know the answer to this question, but in the image that was posted yesterday, was that supposed to be Josette's ghost in the padded cell at Windcliff with child Magtoria?

Constance Ford made it brilliant.  I think she and Clarice were friends with one another btw.  Like Clarice, Constance Ford was a highly talented actress who became a regular on one of the Sixties soaps--I can't recall which one now.

Marge honey, you would LOVE maybe the second or so episode of THRILLER ever produced.  It was a star vehicle for Constance Ford, the evil frigid b-i-t-c-h in THE SUMMER PLACE (sternly instructing a pouting Sandra Dee--"you gotta HOOK a man--you can't just let him kiss and MAUL you like that!").  I don't recall the plot details and I am looking forward to watching it again at some point.  I just remember she plays this conniving woman scheming to get her hands on some money, there's a big old mansion, and a plot more reminiscent of ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS than the supernatural stuff referenced in this thread.

THRILLER really was a mixed bag.  To be honest most THRILLER fans regard the Diana Millay episode as one of the weakest.  I always enjoy the period details such as the clothing and decor but vintage TV junkies need more than that to pique their interest, I guess.

A friend alerted me that this series is also available for free through hulu.  Or at least episode one was available.  I do not know if that means they will continue to carry it.

Karloff was brilliant in The Incredible Dr. Markesan which I finally saw a couple of years ago after having seen several stills from it in Famous Monsters as a child.

The final shot of that is so unbearably shocking. and it's accomplished with the simplest of means; lighting, music, make-up, and a really dedicated performance.

When you watch material such as this you really feel as if the classic Gothic horror of yore is much to be mourned...

I know I'm on the edge of getting way off topic here, but if you look closely when Ichabod wakes up from his "sleep" in that very witchy cave, there's one shot that shows his adorably pert nipple with exquisite chiaroscuro...

Just in case anybody out there cares.

I'll try to stop repeating this, but honestly--had the Depp/Burton version of Barnabas in 1972 been done like this... I would have been much happier with the results.  I played an interview today where Tom Mison mentioned that he had researched American speech patterns of the 1770s and tried playing the character with an authentic accent... the result was described as "inaudible" and "like pots and pans banging together."  I've read that Colonial Americans spoke with very flat vowels and an intonation much like what is today thought of as the Yorkshire accent... Tom mentioned another part of England.

cheers, G.

A really cute clip from next week's episode, Blood Moon, which is set to have a Witchcraft theme:
