Fans, a friend just pointed me towards David del Valle's current blog:

http://delvallearchives.blogspot.com/

If you scroll down, the current entry dated March 4 and a recent entry from February contain material of interest to DS fans.  March 4 is David's review of Barbara Steele's new indie film, The Butterfly Room, while if you scroll down a bit further you'll see a photo of David with Ms. Steele and, further still, a memorial tribute to Jonathan Frid with some personal memories from David.

Best, G.

Uncle Roger, that's really wild about Lada.  Sounds as if she has had a lot of fun.  She was always so uninhibited and physical on Hullaballoo, I can see her doing well with what you mention.

I'm guessing Lada would be in her mid Sixties now.  She looked about 19 or so when she was on Hullaballoo.

Best, G.

I've seen footage of Donna on Hullaballoo in the past.  What a fabulous showcase of talent and FUN that was.  The talent sweepstakes series of today, the various idols and whatnots, don't come close to the entertainment the variety shows of the 1960s used to bring into American living rooms.

My favorite of the backup dancers was Lada Edmunds Jr.  She's the gal with the huge spiky red mane who seemed to be in constant energetic animation when she danced.  Her technique was very freeform and I doubt whether the more formally trained dancers approved.  Lada did a film after Hullaballoo, and had a record out, but sadly her career went nowhere--hope she had a happy life anyway.

I thought Liz's secret macrame cupboard was one hell of a secret.  AND a clear nod to the fact that somebody high up in the production unit reads these boards and knows about our secret Dutch macrame fetish thang...

It really looks as if Julia's having a liquid dinner...

You're really making me regret that the HBC Julia wound up being barely above a cameo appearance here.

I know this is beyond the realm of trivia, but can anyone tell me what the food item is suppsed to be that's huddled on Julia's plate?  The only thing that comes to mind is those melon balls that Seventies hostesses used sometimes to soak in champagne or something.

MB, these captures are a hoot!  I'm enjoying this more than I did actually watching the movie.  And you're achieving what I had thought was completely impossible--making me want to sit through the movie again!  Although I still cringe at the thought of having to sit through a lot of it anytime soon.

HBC is such a hoot.  I wish more of her deleted scenes had been released.

I don't remember anything being said, anywhere, about the Depp Shadows' Elizabeth's husband.  Can you refresh my memory?

Whatever happened to Barbara Blackburn, anyway?

Cool.  And there's a photo of Jessica Chastain modelling a white frock at the soiree, too.

Clearly, it was the night of the duelling Carolyns!

cheers, SRS

How cool!  Does Katie play the Queen of Outer Space?  Sounds juicy.

I think David (sorry can't recall the boy's name--Gulliver something) also got masses cut because I recall one of the writers or producers saying that an entire storyline between Barnabas and David was cut out of the final release print.

Would have been interesting to have been a fly on the wall during and immediately after the screening of the cut Burton delivered to the studio suits, wouldn't it?

Current Talk '21 I / Re: Depp/Burton DARK SHADOWS Is In Release!!
« on: February 23, 2013, 03:40:02 PM »
Hi Lydia, well, my take is that "Liz" and "Julia" in Depp Shadows are completely independent characters who just happen to have the same name as characters in the 1960s series "Dark Shadows."

The personalities, traits, aesthetics, etc. are so different from the 1960s versions that I don't even attempt to compare.  The Helena Julia is more like a takeoff on the fabulous Bea Arthur's performance as "Maude" than it is somehow in any way a nod at what Grayson did in the series.  I see zero relationship between Joan's characterization of Elizabeth and the character portrayed by Pfeiffer (who was the best thing in the movie, from this viewer's perspective).

I think this way as well about the characters as portrayed in "house of DS" although since it was the same actresses there was an element of "Parallel Time" about that redaction.

cheers, G.

I just adore the shot of LeviaLiz in this month's set for the Original Series.  Love Love Love!

This whole scene feels as if it's setting up stuff that NEVER comes into play in the finished film as released.  Granted I only saw it once... and I feel as if I missed out a lot of the nuances in this scene... just as was the case with those who saw it more often.

I guess this is the one extended time we spend with the characters where BarnaDepp is absent.  Once BarnaDepp shows up, it's all about him and Angelique, with Liz stepping into Julia's role in the original show as Barn's ally and defender.
