Don Briscoe played Donald, the weekend guest and close friend of the central protagonist, Michael.

Wow, Charles!  That second shot is KILLER!

There can be no doubt who the STAR of that film was!

Thanks so much!

Wow.  It's like Cassandra meets Miss Gulch (with the mutton-chop sleeves, or whatever they're called).

Some of Cassandra's clothing WAS chic in the Summer of 1968.  That lemon yellow coat-dress, or the sleeveless blue mini come to mind.  I thought the morning frock she wore for the scene where Barnabas offered to take her back if she would stop the Dream Curse (and free Vicki) was gorgeous.  Then, there are horrors such as the purple butterfly caftan, which of course I secretly adore... That one looked as if it came into the world as an attempt at a Peter Max ripoff gone horribly awry.

Wigs were chic in 1968.  I remember my Mother and my Aunt going wig shopping around that time.  They both showed up at a number of parties wearing these huge frosted pelts on their heads.  Mom gets really uncomfortable now whenever I bring this up.

Part of the idea behind the popularity of wigs may have been women who were trying to give their hair a rest from some of the unbelievably corrosive products in use back then.  I remember my mother complaining about the health of her hair.

There's a scene with Tony George in this 1981 OLTL clip:

And Grayson can be spotted briefly a couple of times (in a fabou black turban accessorized with a divine white scarf) in this flashback to when Asa Buchanan faked his own death:

The guy who posted the first clip apparently has a lot of early 1980s OLTL ... so who knows...

There was a magazine interview of him done around 1968 which carried the epic title, "Get hip to the Warlock." 

At some point in one of the iterations of this list, somebody did post a scan of it, but I don't think it's available anymore.  It wasn't all that revealing as I recall, but was a bit of fun from the old days.

What an eerie mood.  It's incredible to think that Sy Tomashoff and his assistants did all that work for a set that was only seen for one brief moment on the show.

Thanks, MB.  That scene is right out of Rod Serling's Twilight Zone terrain...

Thanks MB for that beautiful capture.  I imagine Vince and Conard both bellying up to the bar in that great Blue Whale in the sky (forgive hackneyed imagery, my brain is wilted toast today).

And thanks Midnite for checking on Vince's episodes.  I thought he had played Riley.  Isn't he in what recently became one of my all time favorite scenes in the series, that weird-ass little vignette played in the Phoenix morgue?  I remember the scene yet am uncertain whether Vince was on hand for it.  Pathetic to see the mind disintegrate into a wispy bit of swiss cheese.

Very sad.  Even though I think he was only in a few episodes (maybe only 2 or 3???), something about Vince O'Brien's presence was solidly memorable in the chimerical role of Sheriff Patterson.

Didn't he appear in another role on the series as well?

Gosh, we leaped dramatically forward today, didn't we?  I'd hoped for at least a glimpse of Vampire Stokes.  He must really have been famished to want to make a meal out of something as unsavory as Jeff.

Today's capture reminds me that the rooms at Lockwood Matthews were my favorites in terms of set decoration.  Again, it's been a really long time since I last saw these scenes, but this snapshot shows off Maggie's boudoir as a Goth chick's idea of Heaven (or would that be Hell? heh, heh).  Lovely choice, MB.

And you get all of half an hour to remember Grayson... I presume Julia99 will be the emcee?

Hope all of those who attend have a grand time!

Just out of sheer curiosity, I watched the promo.  The main vampire couple do seem intriguing, but otherwise it seemed a lot like those old Aaron Spelling shows with lashings of Dawson's Creek territory thrown in for the teen angst set.

MB, it seemed as if the vampires have invented a form of Vampire Sun-block, from one scene I saw in the sneak preview.

I somehow doubt whether this will last very long; surely at this point in the scheme of things, the vampire market is, for lack of a better word, glutted?

He's definitely a Gorey fan--which shows good taste.  His version of Cassandra is a little too palely loitering for me, but I enjoy the drawing on its own terms.

G.

Oh yes, MSC... another word that comes to mind for Liz, as Joan incarnated her, is "patrician."  I can't think of any American actresses of the appropriate age who could bring that off now; possibly Meryl Streep.

I guess it's been a REALLY long time since I watched hoDS all the way through.  When I revisit the film, I typically switch off the tape after Grayson's big line, "Your FACE!"  So, it comes as a surprise to see as Maggie Evans' doctor none other than the nefarious Nicholas Blair!  I had vaguely recalled that Humbert had a brief appearance in the film, but I don't remember him being this clearly on camera.

Last night I got out the tape to watch certain scenes.  I found myself wondering whether "Nurse Shepherd" is on camera at Stage Left in Julia's first scene, when she's treating Daphne at Collinwood.

I read in an old issue of Castle of Frankenstein that Bob Cobert had a "cameo" in the costume ball sequence, but couldn't spot him.  I did find myself wondering who played "John" and the other young man with him.

I again wondered why Jeff got Maggie a glass of punch but nothing for himself. Trying to get our date tipsy, are we?
