They're starting new seasons of TV shows in late June now?  Wow.

I really feel like a time traveller... from the early Bronze age, at this point...

Humbert Allen Astredo also appears, as a doctor attending Maggie.  I'd completely forgotten about his role in the movie until a few years ago when he popped up in one of MB's captures!

MB Darling, If that is the case, I am afraid you have yet to really LIVE.

Enjoy the experience of LIVING!  and bear up Darling, I love your eyelashes...

The Vincent Price "Last Man on Earth" was the first film adaptation of Richard Matheson's novel, I am Legend.  It was filmed in Italy.  Public domain prints have circulated for decades.  I don't know whether the movie has ever had a restored release on home video.

The Bob Fuest "Last Days of Man on Earth" is a cult film so it's not surprising that the prices are so high.  It's one of those films that you are love passionately, or can't even get through ten minutes of.

"The Devil's Rain" had some funny bits for Bill Shatner (recording artist whose cover of "Lucy in the sky with diamonds" caused quite a stir once upon a time), Ernie Borgnine, and Ida Lupino.

Fans,

Grayson Hall's legendary appearance as Pepe, chic lesbian impresario of a bohemian New York nightclub in the early 1960s, can now be enjoyed on Youtube.  I'm linking to part 2 of the film which opens in the middle of one of Grayson's early scenes, but it's very easy to find part 1 from here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J94ovuNXJFA

The other parts all appear to be there.  Enjoy!

David, I support your column, and I support getting the full run of the original series back on a well-supported cable network.

I feel obliged to state for the record that I personally have zero interest in seeing a new series, or new product in general to further "the franchise."

For those who are interested, may all your dreams come true (and turn into delicious nightmares, as appropriate!).

At least it was a nice excuse to have Paul Michael do a cameo in the movie.

I agree, Cousin.  I think we're meant to take it that Stokes and Roger did give the man the message in good faith and he just took his time delivering it, but one does wonder...

Patti, you must mean "false Dark Shadows memory syndrome."  There are still some scenes I'm convinced I saw that just aren't there.

The screen capture that is displaying for me from house of Dark Shadows is captioned with a quote of dialogue from Jeff Clark, who was indeed portrayed by Roger Davis.  However, onscreen is a character portrayed by Paul Michael, also known to fans of the original series as KING Johnny of the gypsies.  As in "Magda, you lyingk geeeep-seeee!"  I forget if the character has a name.  In the scene, he's giving Jeff a message from Roger & Prof. Stokes, and Jeff, who's just woken up from a nap, is asking when Paul Michael's character saw Roger & Stokes.

Best,  Steve

That's really too bad, MB.  But so typical of various stories I have heard about DC and how he operated over the years.

I know it's common to give Curtis all the credit for Shadows having been as fabulous as it was, but at least where the original series (which has my heart) is concerned, I've said before and I'm saying now--the project attained greatness DESPITE the "input" and interference of Dan Curtis.  The best periods were often when he was away working on other projects--such as the introduction of Barnabas (and maybe the preceding Laura Collins storyline, too).

I agree, Jean did have some wonderful moments as Naomi.  Unfortunately I found how the 1990 redaction did the 1790s storyline to be really hard to take, in general, but it's hard to blame anyone other than Brandon Tartikoff for that since apparently he forced them to accelerate the plot to the point where it became utterly ridiculous.  and DC really should not have been encouraged to pack MORE blood-and-thunder action/posturing into a shorter space.  But, anyway...

Another wasted actress (IMO) was Lysette Anthony.  I do wish they had done the second season just to have seen Lysette's take on Laura Collins.  I bet *that* would have been something to see.

I agree that Pfeiffer was the best part of the Burton/Depp film.  I have no interest in seeing the film itself ever again but I would enjoy seeing a reel of Pfeiffer and HBC's outtake scenes, if such were ever released (seems unlikely).

I thought Jean Simmons was utterly wasted in the 1990 redaction.  She's a gifted actress and there could have been some wonderful moments for her, but with DC calling the shots, it became all about how much gore, fanging, and carnage they could get away with in each episode. DC would have loved the current era of HBO and other network serial killer dramas with all the loving slo-mo close-ups of manglings, stabbings, dismemberments, gougings etc.

Just my two drachmae.

Dark Lady, I think what you just wrote about Barnabas, especially that last line, is one of the most accurate and astute comments I've ever read about the Barnabas character.  It's a theme the writers keep playing with almost to the end of the series. 

There's a scene in the later part of the 1968 storyline, maybe around the time of Willie's return, when Julia comments to Barnabas something like, "I know you Barnabas.  And I know that you don't do ANYTHING out of simple kindness.  There's ALWAYS a motive."  (paraphrasing)

That scene always impresses me--even though she loves him, she sees right through his posturing and rhetoricizing.  Great stuff.

Nicky, I started buying 16 magazine in late June or early July of 1968.  I remember the photograph you love so much being prominently featured in the mag.  I was hooked, bigtime.

Roger Davis as Barnabas really would be horrifying.  I think I need to lie down just at the thought...

dom, that's so sweet that you wanted to name your daughter Cassandra.  Whenever I meet someone with the name, I wonder (if she is of the right age) if her Mom was a DS fan.
