I think somewhere up there Philippe mentioned that Lara alluded to "our little show" and speculated that it would still be remembered--and watched--long after the Burton/Depp behemoth had been relegated to a footnote.

I'm imagining her saying this with one of her catlike smiles...

I agree michael.  It looks from the photos that have been shared as if in at least one major space, the decor of the room was provided by these giant standee posters from the Burton/Depp project.  Amanda's notes about Sharon's remarks are the first I've heard of the movie being explicitly mentioned.

It all seems quite strange...

Thanks, Amanda, for that report--beautifully written as always, and I always find the stories you choose to share of particular interest.

I never knew that Marie had been in the original production of Gypsy.  I've long regretted that Ethel didn't get to do the film.  Intriguing to learn that Marie's interest in fine art goes back that far.

I guess I'm grateful, vicariously, to Sharon for raising the question about how the Burton/Depp movie polarized the fandom.  I have to say that I feel to a growing degree in a separate camp now from mainstream fandom since to date I have not really cared for any of the attempts to do remakes of DS.  (I make an exception from the original 1970-71 feature films; for one thing, they were done with the same cast, writers, and production unit by and large as the original series.)  I find the topic of the Burton/Depp film a profound bore.  And no, I haven't seen it yet.  I think about seeing it and then think of 99 other things on my list of things to do...

It would be interesting to see the Spencer productions fanvid in its entirety.  I have to confess that apart from Daryl's deliciously over-the-top performance as Julia, the trailer just seemed to lack that "spark" I recall from "Save our cemeteries."  I'd still like to see the entire video.

Ah, "the witching influence of the air"!  Beautiful.

If Quentin had come on the scene as planned in the Fall 1991 season, he might have become Barn's competition for Vicki, at least for a time.  He was to be played by a very attractive Scottish actor whose name I am forgetting... Adrian Paul?  That man could set one of his own kilts on fire...

I think the thing with the remakes is that all of them focus on the original Barnabas storyline; Burke was part of it in 1967, but not a part that has attracted the attention of people who seek to extend the "franchise".  It's a little surprising that Burton/Depp didn't work in a reference to Burke since they apparently wove in a number of other references only diehard fans would get.

Thanks for that link, Jimbo.  michael, you're right:  the lady with the blonde bob is identified on Jimbo's link as Sharon.

I was wondering for a bit if she might have been Kathy Cody, but evidently not.

That's beautiful Teresa! Who is the lady next to Marie--not Jerry, on the other side of Marie?

Glad to hear you had such a lovely time.  I regret not having been there.  It wasn't good timing for me, amongst other factors.

Thanks again for the latest reflective notes on this year's Festival experience.  700 sounds pretty low as an attendance figure to me.  Don't the NY area Festivals typically take in between 2000 and 2500 attendees?

I think a cruise would have potentially a very different clientele from the typical fan who attends the Festivals.  It will be interesting to see whether they pursue that idea.

The short play with Nancy and Jerry sounds beautiful.  I would love to hear Carolyn and Tony exchanging their thoughts after all those years.  I'm sure the two actors portrayed it with sensitivity and depth.

Thanks again,

Steve

Thanks, Ms C.  Those are great photos.  I spotted Jerry Lacy but he wasn't identified--wonder why not.  And I spotted some other familiar faces in the snaps.  Looks as if that tent had a lot of empty seats even though the event was officially sold out.

It was odd to see the giant poster/standee set up for the Burton/Depp film.  I wonder if that was the only element from what one would have thought would have been this year's hot theme on evidence at the event.

And thanks again to Philippe for his very personal, beautifully written report.  Once upon a time, we had several fans on here reporting from the Festival floor.  Now you alone remain to tell the story (I think that's a quote, but can't recall from where).

Thanks, Steve

Maybe that's the latest curse of Angelique upon the Collins family... "you will ALL wear hideous lime-green leisure suits... for ALL ETERNITY!!!"  Now that's a horror show.

Philippe, that's a lovely account of your day.  Thanks so much for taking the time to share!  I've been to T'town a few times but never managed to get to Sunnyside, nor the Sleepy Hollow cemetery.  I've always been taken to Lyndhurst in a car so I have missed the magical views you describe of the approach to the house, although I do think of the opening of Night of DS and how there is that sense of anticipation as they approach the gracious old mansion (where secret horror lurks... heh, heh)

I am thrilled for you that Nancy Barrett will be performing.  Had that been announced, I might have made more of an effort to try and be there since I always enjoy seeing Nancy.  And Jerry Lacy!

Sometimes there is a fan, or a few fans, who have DVD players in their rooms and show videos.  Maybe you'll stumble across somebody who will invite you to one of those parties.

I hope you are enjoying your evening!

cheers, Gothick

It sounds as if the "artists" are randomly grabbing photo references off the internet without bothering to check whether they are from DS roles or not.  Somebody told me that Julia appeared in a pantsuit in one panel. Now, GH wore pantsuits *in other roles, NON DS* and the "artist" may have found this on the internet and decided to use the costume...

I am too sickened to continue reading the book--even the concept of browsing it at the shop feels potentially nauseating.

It's almost not a DS-themed publication if there aren't some errors... or so it would seem.

Wow, wow, wow! I have lost count of how many times I have been checking the VW site to see when this would be posted.  THRILLED.  This one is going to be the ne plus ultra!  Can't wait to have it on my shelf.

I look forward to congratulating all involved once it is released!
