Thanks, MB. I don't recall that scene at all.

Current Talk '22 I / Miss Hoffman and the "Blood of Dracula"
« on: January 21, 2020, 02:25:51 AM »
Last night's late movie was BLOOD OF DRACULA (1957) which should have been titled I WAS A TEENAGE VAMPIRE... set in an exclusive girls' school. Among the faculty is Miss Branding (Louise Lewis), who is "experimenting" to prove the existence of a "terrible power" within each human that would make the pursuit of atomic bombs an irrelevance. Miss Branding, whose experiments involve hypnosis using an elaborately carved medallion which came from a "legendary" region of the Carpathian mountains, seemed quite reminiscent of a certain obsessed lady doctor who debuted on Dark Shadows ten years after this film was released, in the Summer of 1967. I should stress that Miss Branding seemed to foreshadow the original concept of Julia Hoffman--which altered considerably thanks to the genius and popularity of Grayson Hall in the role. The frustrated, coded-as-lesbian scientist in the 1957 film did not meet so kindly a fate.

Complete film here:

How odd. Today's illustration from the comic book looks as if it could have been used by Burton as a storyboard for a sequence in his DS movie.

I'm sure that was never released as a pub photo. You can see the stagehand holding the end of her train. I think this photo first surfaced just a couple of years ago. It must have been from a still photographer's archive... I have no idea whether Getty really has legal ownership of that image.

I don't know enough about today's Hollywood or the "industry" as it is now to know if hosting this thing means Jenna Dewan's career is dead in the water. At one time, that is what it would have meant. But if the show takes off, she'll make a lot of money off doing it.

Given how much smoke DC always had hanging in the air in what I recall of the 1991 series, that "style" does make sense for a 1991 DS comic book.

Another interview, done when Chris had just turned 70. In 2013.

Chris's comic books about working on DS are fun.

The other part where Chris discusses how he was cast, his thoughts about Jeb, wanting to play Alex in Clockwork Orange, memories of Mike Stroka, and other topics...

Fans,

Last night I watched an interesting short video interview with Christopher Pennock. In my DS DVDs, it's on collection 19, disc 3, which comprises episodes 962 through 971. Perhaps it was included on the "coffin set" as well.

Chris discusses his impressions of fellow actors Jonathan Frid, Grayson Hall, Thayer David, Don Briscoe, and Kate Jackson. For me the most interesting were his comments about Thayer. He described Thayer as being very humble in his work on the show and quite collegial in his interactions with the directors and his fellow players. He also described Thayer as an artist who was constantly honing his craft and improving as an actor. He described Thayer as his "inspiration." Lovely memories.

That is a nice article about Alec Newman, although bewilderingly, they failed to mention that his best known role is as Barnabas Collins on the 2004 DS.

Journalism today just is going to the dogs! Or is that the wolves...

Maggie looks totally crazed in today's selection. As if she's ready to skewer someone with a stiletto. Has she been possessed by Angelique again in this version? I feel as if I need a scorecard...

Carolyn's first real act of rebellion against Mother was to dump Joe in favor of dating Burke. That really hurt both Liz and Joe.

Carolyn wasn't all that likable as a character in the original 1966 arc but Nancy was so wonderful that she made Carolyn compulsively watchable. Also fascinating to see how Burke handled himself with Carolyn... he clearly knew he had a tigress by the tail there.

Exquisite. Thanks, MB!
