That's awful about Roy Thinnes. Hard times at Collinwood.  Prayers for healing all around!

In her first book published in the 1980s, KLS recalled that the striking-Sam-blind storyline was written to accommodate the actor's need to rely on the TelePrompTer more heavily than would have been possible had he not been wearing dark glasses. She also gave an account of a certain pivotal episode for the character of "Pop" Evans that isn't supported by the tape, though I've always wondered if the incident might have happened during the "tech" runthrough on the sets (a dress rehearsal with the cameras to make sure blocking decisions were on the mark). 

Given that Sam's next major storyline echoes events in the classic horror film Bride of Frankenstein, I'm not sure I entire buy KLS's story from her memoirs.  It is certainly true that some cast members made heavier use of the TelePrompTer (or other memory aids provided for them by the crew) than did others.

Dom, after I posted I discovered that the entire film is on Youtube, broken into six parts.  I don't know if that works for you but it is there if you want to get a taste of it.

Joan wears dark glasses in much of the film I believe...

It was announced today on Grayson's F-b-k page that Sam and Matt Hall have had to cancel at the last minute, as Sam is unwell.

I hope the event is a success for all involved.

Wow.  Some regard this as Joan's finest performance ever, and it's NEVER been available in any format so far as I am aware...

That was a great post, Dom, with the transcription of that scene.  I agree that the writing really goes off the cliff with these episodes.  Soooo bad.

Is this the 1980s Twilight Zone series?

Thanks, MB!  After this reminder, I remember that the last time this episode was posted, you or somebody mooted this theory, that Jon had to skip the day's work at the last minute and Grayson may have stepped in and done more or less the Barnabas lines with very minor rewrites.

That makes a lot more sense than any other explanation I can think of.

Best, G.

Magnus, I understand where you're coming from, but my point is that Julia only acts this way in this one episode.  It's very different from the character has been established and how she behaves after this one episode.

I kind of wonder if this one might have been ghostwritten by a non staff writer.  I have a theory that it may have happened more often than we realize.

I always find this such an odd episode in terms of how Julia's character is written.  She's such a cold, bitter rhymes-with-stitch, especially to Willie, for whose care she had been technically responsible.

In her next episode, she's back to the more caring Julia we've come to know in the 1968 episodes.  I find this one an odd blip to say the least.

No one else has commented on this so I guess I'm in a small minority in finding the writing to be very discontinuous here.

MB, is there a page or something that has all of the Tarot cards on it with thumbnails or hyperlinks or whatever?  I have a friend who is a Tarot fanatic and I'd like to send her a link, but neither of us is on Twitter so perhaps I'm out of luck.

Looks interesting!

A very reliable source has confirmed that the voice on this track is indeed Grayson Hall.

I just love this...

Thanks for letting me know, MB.  I am afraid I got confused.

I had some correspondence with Cousin Barnabas of that site last year for the Grayson Hall blogathon so I'll see if I have an email address so I can congratulate him.

I guess it's that melancholy Byronic profile that confuses me with all the Cousins Barnabas...

Her eyes are incredible.  Dominic West is excellent too.

In a brilliant bout of superb detective work, our own Cousin Barnabas has unearthed one of the Holy Grails of Grayson Hall fandom--one of Grayson's Blue Oyster Cult voiceovers.  The file is posted here:

Hats off to Cousin B!  You're the best!
