Barbara Steele's "Countess" du Pres was obviously the stylish Madam of a very exclusive bordello in Paris.  Steele's line readings in the part make me sca-REAM (oh dom, beloved, where ARE you?).

Listening to the free clips on the site for this set made me realize how much music Cobert either composed originally for the new series or re-scored so extensively it might as well be a fresh composition.  I look forward to hearing it.

Delighted to see that new copies of the 8 CD original series score collection ARE still available on Amazon at a nice discount.

I was perturbed to see that apparently Amazon aren't carrying the 1991 soundtrack CD.  Very peculiar.  It only seems to be avalable through the link that was posted at the beginning of this thread.

There are substantial clips available for free listening, which is particularly fantastic since one of my complaints about the technical side of that 1991 TV show was that the score was often so poorly mixed as to be nearly inaudible--you'd just hear a faint tinkle of a piano which seemed to be down the hall and in the "closed off wing," or something that might have been Ima Fly's attempt at a cameo or a string pizzicato...

But, I'm not supposed to be COMPLAINING about the deficiencies of that show here... It's great news for ALL fans that this set is now available!  Yes, fans, there are TWO CDs of this amazing music available!  As far as I am concerned the music may have been in many ways the best side of the entire project.  (Although I will always love the moment when Barbara Steele informs Jean Simmons that "the professor has been a bit DOTTY these days.)

That's REALLY bizarre that the release of Bob Cobert's music for the 1991 DS was not mentioned at all by Shadowgram or other Festival Organs.  (I feel as if I'm writing for "Private Eye" now!)  I mean, I'm not that much of a fan of the 1991 show, but I'm interested in the new CD because of my fondness for Bob Cobert's music for the series.  I would expect a lot of other fans who are more focused on the original series would feel the same way.

It must have been a political decision on somebody's part to keep us in the dark about this new release.  Wonder why?  Has somebody out there decided they hate Bob Cobert?

They regularly mention 1991 series actors' participation in new projects so I see it as more directed against Cobert and his fans (if it's directed against anyone) rather than a slap in the face to fans of the 1991 version.  Just my take on it.

I look forward to hearing the new CD.  I wonder whether the "collector's set" of the original series soundtrack cues is still available?  I always thought I would pick it up once the prices went down but then I sort of forgot about it.  It wasn't really reviewed anywhere, was it?

DS fandom can be a very odd terrain at times...

Current Talk '22 I / Re: hoDS/NoDS DVD Release?
« on: July 21, 2010, 07:30:02 PM »
That's good to hear that Pierson did make some mention of the feature film DVDs, although I would guess that if the Depp Shadows release gets pushed back later, the same will go for the film releases given how the suits think about these things (as Darren explained so patiently sometime back).

I wonder whether Daryl Schaefer was ever contacted about possibly looping Grayson's missing dialogue.  His mimicry of her voice is truly uncanny, and after all, even Sam said that the dialogue should be re-dubbed by a male to get the right quality.

I suppose that if they can't get Daryl, her dialogue could also be represented by subtitles.

Haven't there been rumors about Angelina Jolie intriguing to play Angelique? Her current Vanity Fair mag cover shot could be seen as an interesting update of Cassandra....

What a sublime B&J moment on today's snapshot!  This image really captures for me the atmosphere of their onscreen chemistry during that last year...

Current Talk '10 II / Re: 1897 Concordance Vol #2??

This seems to be Kathy Resch's website:

http://www.knightwriter.org/Shop/Shop.cgi?F=DS

No sign of 1897 volume 2.  I guess I was remembering Leviathan finally being released.  So, where's the love for Count Petofi?  He is still one of my all time fave-rave characters on the show!

It is nice to see that the Grayson Hall Tribute Zine, A Gift of Memory, is still in print.

I thought she did finally publish this, and Leviathans, some years ago?  Have you tried emailing Kathleen Resch?

Best,

Wow.  Kathy looks great AND has great memories to share!  Thanks for all you've shared, Midnite.

One of my fave moments from "Satan in High Heels"--"Who needs a cat?"

Thank you, Philippe.  I saw Seizure once, at a DS party.  There was so much cross talk and laughter that I've always meant to see it again.  It struck me as very much a period piece.  Martine Beswick is always fun to see.  Apparently the original title was going to be Queen of Horror and David del Valle waggishly wrote about the stir in town upon seeing a marquee that read "Jonathan Frid--Queen of Horror."  Naughty!

Well I personally am praying they don't do any of Grayson's characters... Adam seems an odd choice for the first release given that he was only on the show for a few months, and his storyline is so unpopular.  Maybe they didn't bother to find out what we actually like.

If they do a Grayson character, though, I'll live.  I've survived looking at the ghastly caricature of her in the Gold Key comics.  bleah.

Barn looks as if he's been out on a bender.  Adam looks like a Ken doll that had an unfortunate encounter with a Mack truck.  Willie looks as if he's being played by one of the blokes from Thunderbirds are Go with a very mousey dye job. Quentin looks as if Magda just slipped him a mickey (either that, or Selby was reacting to some particularly preposterous line of dialogue Sam gave him).

The Devil's Daughter is such a wonderful film, so stylish and with wonderful witty dialogue.  Abe Vigoda has a great cameo appearance, and then of course there's the mute, tragic chauffeur who communicates such poignant sorrow with nary a word of dialogue.  I was thinking of it yesterday because I just watched "The Initiation of Sarah" from 1978 and that was a much less polished, banal production... Winters seemed strangely off-key and under-rehearsed, disappointingly, in the latter film.

I'm very disappointed if Pierson flatly stated that there are "no plans" to release the films now.  It would have been reassuring if he had told us that "there are no current plans, but we are confident that WB will order the release of the films."  I wonder whether with their DVD-R on demand program in place, they're even less interested than ever in spending money to do decent editions of classic films. e. g. the 50th anniversary of Horror of Dracula came and went without an upgrade DVD release...

Thanks to Lori for the link.  It's funny to think of DC "deciding" to make Barnabas more sympathetic...

And MB, what you wrote has been my understanding; given the hoopla and hints of dramatic announcements over the weekend, I have been wondering whether we might hear news, or at least rumors, regarding the DVD releases.
