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.

Nice to see.

I wish Nancy Barrett and Alex Moltke were doing cameos, too.

Is this kind of writing typical of television criticism today?  It's infantile and illiterate.

He doesn't discuss The Vampire Diaries; he simply mentions the series.

I saw a snapshot somewhere of Joe Manganiello (if I'm spelling his name properly) and was bowled over by how impossibly sexy he is.  It's still not enough to make me move True Blood into my Netflix queue, though.

That's a lovely photo of David and Lara, MB.  Many thanks for posting the link.

Lovely work.  The fan who owns that channel, Baron von Blixberg, has done tribute videos to every DS actor, I think--certainly many of them.  There are a couple for Grayson.  Great photos all around.

I haven't scrutinized the photo with nearly the degree of intensity y'all have done, but I would really doubt that Bella Heathcote was allowed to do a stunt like that.

But maybe they did let her/ask her to do it--if they're really that dumb.

Fans,

Nancy Barrett appears in the beginning part of this unfortunately rather poor quality OLTL video clip from Sept. 1982:

A number of 1982-83 episodes have been loaded on Youtube by this fan... I keep hoping that one of Grayson's Euphemia Ralston episodes will show up at some point...

The idea of Julia having to escape from the padded cell at Windcliff is a hoot! 

And I know it upsets people, but this is sounding more and more like a Saturday Night Live skit that some very dedicated fans would put on who have been immersing themselves in the show for years...

OMG OMG, Roger Davis will be there!!!!  what an utter THRILL for all the lucky fans who will be present!!!  *swoooonn*

Oh, I'm sorry, is my sarcasm dripping a hole through the floor?

What a hoot.  The one about Quentin bringing his groovy, scandalous Witches coven to Collinsport sounds like a real scream.  I just may need to hit up abebooks for that one...

As always, one knows that the book covers are going to be by far the most interesting features of these ... artifacts.  I do love the one for The Foe of Barnabas Collins.  Such a fab photo.

In the 1980s fanzines, and into the ones that were produced in the early 90s, the whole Barnabas/Josette thing was HUGE.  In retrospect I attribute this to how beautifully Frid and KLS played their romantic scenes together in the 1795 storyline, which was frequently played in the syndication packages available in those days--they didn't get the final year of the episodes, and they started with Barn crawling out of his coffin in 1967, so the complete 1795 relay probably ran a number of times in various markets during the decade.  As many here will recall, fan networks ensured that those who did not have access to broadcasts locally got videotapes, typically circulated in slp mode (six hours of episodes per tape--I had some of these that a friend copied for me in the early 1990s).

Since KLS played Josette, if you see Barn/Josette as the central theme around which the entire series turns, KLS becomes THE leading lady of the show.  Angelique was "the bitch" which is a different kind of leading lady in the archetypal world of daytime drama.

It's definitely true that "the idea of Josette" was much more a part of the actual episodes than "the reality of Josette." But it really doesn't require much manipulation on the part of KLS to make fans feel that she was one of the most important people on the show.

Wonderful series tonight from the 1995 sequence.  What wonderful work from Nancy and Clarice.  I think of this segment as in some ways the last classic moment from the series before it descended into the incoherent, crazy quagmire of the 1840 story and its 1970 prelude.

Lovely snaps from today's 1968 episodes, too.  I love the ensemble Julia is wearing.  And that scene between Harry and his Mom is a scream.  Just grand stuff.

Nice to read about the screening in September.  That would be a pleasant event for fans in the area.  If it fits my schedule, I'd go!

The budget was $750,000.  I bet the line item for catering/honeywagon on Depp Shadows is more than that.

If you want to join, do you get a peremptory email demanding:  WHUUUUUU are yoUUUUU over and over and over again?

Just kidding!  I'm glad Kathy has stepped up to the plate with this.  I'm sure it is a lot of fun!


cheers, G.
