Fans,

I am excited to report that I just learned that an episode of One Life to Live
we haven't seen before from Grayson's Euphemia Ralston storyline has been posted
to Youtube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZuvKfiie0M

I have been able to watch part 1 (there seem to be 3 parts in all) and although
the visual quality is not too good, the sound is OK.  I played through parts 2 and 3 and Grayson reappears for a short scene in part 3.  No Nancy Barrett or Tony George in this one, so far as I can tell.

For those who don't know, Grayson's personal backstory for Euphemia was that as
a young woman, she had either been raised in the North or been educated there
and so would not have a typical Southern accent. However, one of the directors
on the show disagreed and made Grayson play the role with a "corn-pone"
deep-fried accent. The episode currently available is an example of Grayson
having to work with this Director. Eventually (thankfully) Grayson got her wish
and Euphemia lost the Southern accent.

I'm not up on the history of OLTL but I believe that Euphemia's estranged
daughter Delilah became a regular character on the show. Euphemia's final
episode was taped in around April 1983 I believe.

It has been a longtime dream of mine some day to be able to view ALL of
Grayson's work as Euphemia.

Best,

Steve

Oh yeah.  Different costumes, sets rearranged, people appearing and disappearing...

I think they worked under the assumption that we all had amnesia from one day to the next. Eventually, I guess they learned better, but never well enough to keep it all consistent.

I still maintain that given the pressures, time-frame, and sheer unbridled insanity with which the average workday there was interlaced, the shows maintain an extraordinary level of quality... which is why it IS my all-time favorite TV show EVER...

It depends.  Sometimes they just used what had been taped the day before.  On other occasions, the re-stagings (as I think of them) could have dramatic differences.  I remember once when Thayer David was in a scene at the end of Day One, and suddenly not in the same scene's finale when repeated on Day Two.

Thanks for that info, Darren.  I seem to recall having read somewhere that Karlen was very happy with his status on DS.  As you said, it give him the freedom to pursue other projects in between bursts of very regular work on the series.

Fascinating to read that actors still to this day work on soaps without contracts.  I would have thought that union regs would no longer allow such a situation, but my knowledge of the current industry is practically nil.

A lot of the actors on DS worked without a contract.  I guess things were a lot more loose back in the Sixties. 

I would love to see episodes from Hidden Faces.  I bet it was a hoot.

I just had a look at the French Wikipedia article and it actually says that Angelique turned Barn into a vampire when she fell in love with him and he rejected her.

I'll spare you my rant about automated translation utilities.

Wait a minute.  The first arc is supposed to run from issues one to six.  Why on Earth would they do a collection of just the first four?

If they do, presumably it will be a limited-run tie-in collectible related to the movie release.

Thanks for the news, Darren, and for the hints that the delay may help you to deliver a superior product.  After all the YEARS of your own time you have put into this project, you deserve to be allowed to get it right.  I appreciate the fact that the films are in the hands of such a knowledgeable fan as yourself.

In the old days, whenever a remake came along, it meant that the original or previous iterations of a story were buried in the deepest, darkest vault known to humankind and sometimes lost for a time altogether.  This happened with both the 1932 Old Dark House and the 1935 She, I believe, in the Sixties.

UGH.

Just my personal opinion... I would take more seriously the comments from the two cast members and Pierson if the women had been on set more than one or two days, and Pierson weren't a paid employee of Dan Curtis Productions with an obvious fiduciary interest in the success of this project.

Frankly, if it helped sell Pom Press Books, I think KLS would say just about anything to anyone (to quote Dr. Julia Hoffman in a certain scene with Our Favorite Witch).

Trying to be tactful here... whatever else one may say about the trailer descriptions, they purport to include actual dialogue from actual scenes in the completed film.

I just read the Ross person's description of those two trailers.  Hoo boy, sounds like a bottom-of-the-barrel script to me. 

I'm not surprised that Seth Graham failed to get the ring of late 18th century genteel speech, but it is surprising that he seems to have given such anachronistic dialogue to people living in 1972.  I do remember how people talked back then.  It wasn't anything at all like the dialogue quoted in the Ross rap about these snippets.

Excitement fading... but, we still have the DVD restoration of NoDS to look forward to... that remains my predominant focus as a fan of the original.

Gawd.  This Mrs Johnson looks like a refugee from that Lovecraft tale, "The Shadow over Innesmouth" (or a related story by the Master of Arkham, "The Festival").

She also makes me think of Dame Edna Everage's late bridesmaid, Madge Althorpe (in her 1980s act).

I remember discussing this footage when I first saw it.  I can't recall when or what thread.  I did think it was fascinating.  It underlined just how difficult the conditions could be for the actors (to me).  I also was intrigued to hear Lara speaking with her own Souhern accent when she wasn't acting.

Would love to hear the audio of Lela directing during the Laura '67 storyline.  It might be on one of the MPI discs somewhere.  They did have a lot of special features on those discs.

If anyone knows more about the availability of this audio clip or can direct me to which of the DVDs has it, I would love to hear about it.

It might have just been her freckles.  She had them all over.  She usually covered them with makeup when on camera.

I try to wrap my mind around the concept of someone actually addressing The Divine One as "Freckles" but it brings my brain to a complete halt.  I don't think the response to such a mode of address would have been favorable.  At all.

Interesting.  Dialogue has to be looped in post-production all the time, and I'm sure Bella isn't the only one who's been involved in this.

I am offline for a few days starting tomorrow, on a trip to San Francisco and San Jose--have fun in my absence!
