Great shots today.  I love Julia in that 1969 episode doing her "If I only had brain routine."  And the Laura series is very haunting and evocative.

From the Leviathan storyline, Julia's wearing one of my favorite scarves today.  Always nice when the rare occasion comes around when they gave Grayson something more elegant to wear for a change.

Today's shot of Liz and Daphne is just one of those moments of serendipity--if only the dialogue had been something like this:

LIZ: Don't even THINK of trying to outdo my trademark big hair, bitch!  I AM the Mistress of Collinwood!

Just a fab moment.  Thanks, MB.

Lara was born in '37.  (Same year as my Mom... funny to think that!).  I guess 32 was an older age in the late Sixties than it seems now...

My God!  an actual reference to *gasp* a ... a... a .... BATHROOM at ... COLLINWOOD?

*clutches throat, puts up other hand in dramatic gesture of avoidance*'

It ... can't be!

Oh... thank God ... it was CUT.  Whew!

Maggie's neckbite was either the same one she had in HoDS, or they made another one based on the technique the makeup guy came up with--if I recall correctly, he bit into a big hunk of raw meat, then made a cast of that for-real bite into bloody tissue, then the cast was applied to the actress's neck and makeup applied.

The whole process turns my stomach but it does look a lot more real than those dabs of lipstick they used to apply...

MB, sweetheart, you are simply the best!

I do love Mrs. Rumson's day wear.  She clearly is going for an updated, more sleek redaction of the June Cleaver look.  Pale blue always looks well on LP...

In the second scene, Julia looks as if she's thinking, "Are you for real, bitch???"

GREAT stuff!! Thank you so much!

Just a line to say--great atmosphere in tonight's scenes from the Laura storyline, MB. 

It was lovely to track down this thread and find a snap from that scene where Liz has a little surprise for Julia in her special gold lame Ohrbach's shopping bag!  This scene is truly better than heroin...

I'm sorry I missed the day on the Robservations slide show when Julia had her own very special personal interview with Mrs Sky Rumson.  Another "desert island" scene for me.

I find myself wondering whether any of these restored scenes from the MPI VHS feature Barbara Steele.  That may really drive me to rush to the Net to see if I can dig up a copy of that tape without spending a fortune...

MB, was there any footage at all left to establish Joe and Daphen's relationship in the original aired episode, BEFORE she wound up as Barnie-bait?

Current Talk '11 I / Re: What Was Your Introduction to DS Fandom?
« on: January 06, 2011, 03:37:37 AM »
Since I am of the Ancient Blood (heh heh) my introduction was through the teen mags of the late Sixties.  When I started watching the show, I think it was sometime around July 1968 I happened to be in the supermarket with my Mom and on a magzine stand there was 16 Magazine and it mentioned DS on the cover.  I bought the issue with my allowance and soon was collecting Tiger Beat and some others as well.  The mags would mention fan clubs, and in the book Barnabas Collins: a Personal Photo Album which came out, I think, towards the end of '69, a Frid fan club was mentioned and there was a photo of the President.  But for whatever reason I never managed to get involved.

When I came back from several years of living in Taiwan in 1986, a friend took me on a jaunt to Baltimore and in a bookshop I stumbled across the Grayson memorial zine, A Gift of Memory.  I was stunned to learn she was dead.  A year or so later Scrapbook Memories was published and I saw and bought it at Forbidden Planet in NYC.  It's hard to believe that was nearly 25 years ago now.

It wasn't until sometime around 1993, I think, that I attended a fan convention, and my visit to the first one I attended was really brief. I missed the fuss around the 1990/91 series because I was living in Beijing for 18 months during those years.

And here we are now in 2011 with all the hoopla around the Depp film... what a strange dance it's been.

Ugh, that color grading on that DVD is beyond ghastly.

This is really fascinating, MB.

Wow.  Thanks for all that, MB.  It's really too bad that ALL of this material was cut from the aired episode.  It would have gone far to explain why David behaved as he did towards Vicki.
