MB, I MUST say I love the theme of your new show!

Episode 2 today, I think?

Hope you and yours are safe and healthy....

All the best, G.

Another DS connection: Peter Turgeon has a role (a minor one, I guess) in The World of Henry Orient. Complete film here:

For Munsters fans, Al Lewis also appears, if I recall correctly as a harried man who runs a convenience store.

Great shot of Barnabas from one of everybody's favorite scenes.

Thanks, MB!

I see Sarah the New Age Guru is back in today's installment. Perhaps she went to work for Dionne Warwick's Psychic Friends after the book folded.

Patrick, hope you and your friends can stay safe, healthy and solvent. Grim times indeed.

All the best, Gothick

Dear Fans,

I watched this movie with Tyrone Power, Ann Blyth, and other distinguished actors last night. It's known by various titles: I'LL NEVER FORGET YOU, THE HOUSE IN THE SQUARE and MAN OF TWO WORLDS, and is a remake of the 1930s film BERKELEY SQUARE. The movie dates to 1951 and I think it was most likely a primary source for the storyline in which Vicki traveled back through time to 18th century Collinwood:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcJ_rVQP3Tg

One of the themes that the two have in common is Vicki having an idealized view of life back in the 18th century before her sojourn. Soon after arriving, she comes to realize that "the past" isn't such a bed of roses as she had imagined.

The 1951 film does not have any characters corresponding to Joshua, Aunt Abigail, Trask, Ben et al, but the hero's name is Peter Standish which might have somehow suggested the name of Peter Bradford.

The most amusing character is foppish brother Tom played by legendary UK character actor Dennis Price... it would have been fun if a character like this had been part of the 18th century Collins family.

LOL. Yes, Sarah looks very Mommie Dearest there. "Tina! Bring me the ax!"

Thanks, Midnite, for that link. THE WORLD OF HENRY ORIENT is a lot of fun and features Angela Lansbury in an offbeat monster-mother role.

Interesting that she reportedly wrote for Gold Key's Boris Karloff book, as well.

The most archetypally hilarious moment in the Gold Key DS books was when some ancient Druid or Leviathan or whatever was shown performing a dread incantation from a forbidden grimoire.The words went INNA-GADDA-DA-VIDA and some other mumbo jumbo. Too perfect.

I wonder if the people who collect these and the reprints are getting them for the camp value.Any other reason why they'd want to have these things around the house is a complete mystery to me. The very first one was kind of fun just because it was so outrageous. Plus, Cassandra was a character although I believe it came out in 1969 by which time she had long since been written out of the series.

According to this review, Joe mentions that in the 1950s, an apartment could be rented in NYC for $24 a month. That seems much more fantastical than any of the storylines on DS.

Thinking of folks living now in NYC and praying for your safety, health and sanity.

It's tempting to imagine that Frid had just uttered the immortal line, "Come on baby, light my fire."

I checked Spectrum TV and got a screen stating that my browser is too outdated to run the channel.

I hope you enjoy the series if you do watch.

G.

222
That actually looks pretty interesting. I wonder whether one can access "Spectrum" on the interwebs.

I'd never heard of Bridget Regan, but she engaged my interest in the trailer, and she was competing with a shirtless Josh Hartnett--she gets a gold star for that. Barbara Hershey is always so fascinating, too, and appears here in a matriarch role.

Sounds like the kind of thing DS fans might enjoy!

Also, to note that ornate grandfather clocks show up in all the grand manor houses in all the Gothic films of Hollywood yesteryear... so, it was certainly one of the significant elements that Sy would have sought out when working on the sets. I've wondered just where he bought the furniture and some other props... and what happened to them afterwards.

There's actually a list of a bunch of furniture and props from the Canadian soap Strange Paradise that were sold at an auction sometime around June or July 1970, if I recall aright... I can look for it and post it in this thread, if people are curious. Inventory lists of this kind are often curiously fascinating to peruse.

Not related to the grandfather clock, but I seem to recall in the original edition of KLS's DS Scrapbook a quote from Sy Tomashoff about including a secret passage in the Collinwood drawing room set (and then doing the same for the Old House drawing room when that was first designed, around episode 70 I think). There was no specification in the script, he said; it was simply that they were creepy old houses in a Gothic melodrama so he felt it went without saying that there HAD to be secret passageways.

A friend just wrote to me that every episode of DS is available on Tubi now, for free. They run commercials, which can be a little difficult on streaming because usually the ads are inserted randomly rather than during the actual commercial breaks.
