I'm sorry I am missing it this year.  I am stuck in Boston dealing with a very bad, frustrating situation.

I'm sure it is just as well they did run the WB pilot since no doubt there were many fans there who had never seen it.

Thanks Michael for the interesting report!

I always thought her favorite character was Maggie.  Her best performances in the show, as far as I am concerned were Maggie in 1966, particularly when she was setting her cap for Joe, and a few of the Lady Kitty episodes when Kitty was intriguing to snare a rich hubby at Collinwood.  Of course, once Kitty fell under the spell of the dead Josette, it was back to yawnsville and the standard mouth-breathing "W-where am I?? W-what am I doing here?" crap they made her do over and over again...

But then, I'm not much of a KLS fan or a Josette fan...

The event sounds really nice.  Thanks for the report!  What a nice treat for the fans to have Marie there, too.

For now at least, what appears to be the entire film from 1970 "Hi, Mom!" (directed by Brian de Palma, starring Robert de Niro), co-starring Lara Parker, has been loaded onto Youtube:

I watched a bit of the beginning but no scenes with Lara showed up.  It's definitely a different kind of project for her.

At this time, Art Wallace was both plotting and writing every episode.  I think he wrote the first eight weeks or so solo.

Interestingly, I think at the end of the series it was almost exactly the same, with Violet Welles (uncredited; screen credit went to Gordon Russell) writing every show, or nearly every show, while Sam was busy scrambling to get the NoDS screenplay together.

It sounds like fun!  Is this the one where Lara appeared at one point baring her fangs?

It was such a treat seeing the shots from the piano screen and reading the fruity, bitchy dialogue.  Thanks for choosing these!  I wonder whether by this time next year, we'll have the DVD with the restored scene available to enjoy whenever we wish to do so?

I also found myself wondering whether, in her own mind, Diana Millay was playing her Laura scenes in the movie with the subtext that this Laura, like the other two she had played, was destined to become a Phoenix?

Hoping Diana, Lara Parker and David Selby were all able to loop their original dialogue from this scene!  It seems destined to become a classic.  Thanks again to Darren for so heroically, indefatigably taking on the task of restoration!

MB, I am LOL at your delightful transcriptions of Angelique's dialogue in today's snapshot!  If only I knew the software to produce a clip that had a giant fake ear codswalloping the saucy Witch in the middle of one of these speeches.  For some reason, they had her bellowing "EAR me!" every five minutes in one episode, or so it seemed.

It sort of goes with Hallie's plaintively bleating "WHUUUU are YUUUU?" in the original series...

Thanks for a much needed laugh... (I'm experiencing the closest thing to the Summer from Hell in recent memory, so every little bit helps).

Happy Birthday Midnite!  Here's wishing you a truly fabulous time in honor of your special day!

At least the reporter didn't have her saying that JF was walking across the set once in his underwear... I could swear that that was a widely circulated version of that blooper at one time...

It sounds to me as if KLS was having a bit of a "Norma Desmond" moment in that interview... but who knows.  I do hope the cameos don't wind up on the cutting room floor, but it could easily happen.

All the stuff about the Cannery and the harbor is quite fascinating!  I always wondered whether there was a lingering odor of canned sardines at Collinwood.  One would imagine they would have been a staple of the meals there.

She's referring of course to Frid's blooper during 1897, when he accidentally walked across the set that was on cam for the closing credits carrying one of his costumes on a hanger.

It sounds as if she either didn't finish her thought about it, or the reporter garbled what she said.

That's amazing that the original series actors got three days work out of this.  I would love to know what the fees were.  It's good to hear that they were all treated so well.

Wow.  They "weren't satisfied" by something from the prize-winning pen of S. E. Hinton, yet they published the Salem Branch??

I'll never, ever understand the current publishing scene.

There was a thread about it a year or two ago.  I haven't had time to read the book.

Very cool.  I don't know who Ryan Murphy is, but evidently he is in the spotlight today.

I was in the room sometimes when the Waltons was on.  I generally wound up leaving the room to occupy my mind with less gooey, sentimental fare.

Those who are remembered live on in our hearts and adorn our lives with the beauty and wit they brought forth in life.

I watched some Magda episodes on Friday simply because I was having a difficult day and Grayson always brings delight and laughter in her work in that role... I am so glad we still have Grayson's legacy to enjoy and cherish.

Here's to you, Grayson.  I'll never forget you.

cheers, Gothick

Great post, MB.  I never got to see NoDS at all during its theatrical release because we were out of town in a trip (to Florida, I think) the week that it played in our local theatre.  I guess it must have been sometime in August.

Was any of the wild scene where Charles and Angelique are making love in the swimming pool which had been turned into a torchlit, phantasmagoric realm of hell by the production crew for the occasion, still in the print you saw?  There's a snippet of it in the trailers, I think.  I remember that you posted images from it in the NoDS slideshow thread here.

Best, G.
