Dear God.  Poor David.  Still, they say there's no such thing as bad publicity. 

sigh.

Am home today nursing myself through a minor bout of fluishness and happened to stumble upon this guy's videos on YouTube.  They are selections of old 1960s photos of the DS cast, mostly taken outside the studio, with cute musical tracks.  Only some of the videos actually play when I click on them; some just bring up a dark screen.  This one played like a charm and featured a couple of shots of Grayson which, believe it or not, I had never seen before, along with plenty of Jonathan, Lara et al. that were also new to me:

It would be great if a quality book could be issued some day that would collect a nice selection of these from various fans.

I am finding it hard to believe that in not too many years from now, it will all have been fifty years ago.  As the late Sandy Denny said,  Who knows where the time goes?

Exciting indeed, although I am disappointed that Barbara has abandoned the fabulous Gothic baroque extravagance of Italian Victoriana in favor of the banal, suburban, serial-killer dysfunctional paranoia of the contemporary US...

Still, I would watch Barbara Steele recite from the LA phone book.  Hope this movie gets distro!

I thought her actual birth year was 1908?  In 1973 Grayson talked of having attended her 65th birthday party.

Current Talk '05 II / Re: The 2004 WB Pilot
« on: March 01, 2010, 05:15:43 PM »
Having seen the unreleased pilot--it's not like some fabulous gem to swoon over or anything.  Mostly what it is, is an unfulfilled promise.  There are a couple of good scenes in it, and the Scots actor who played Barnabas (Alec Newman???) was brilliant, and the guy who played Willie had a tousled sexiness that was alluring (Matt Czuchny??? my short term memory is in tatters now).  I absolutely hated the ending (apologies to those who loved it) because it was so corny, dumb, and typical WB crapola--but for those who like that sort of thing...

I really can't believe they spent five million dollars (plus) on it--cha ching, cha ching cha ching--not much of the money shows up on screen...

I'm sure the suit dude could only remember "port" and said "Portland" in lieu of "Collinsport."

btw, for those who enjoy reading behind the scenes stuff about the insane world of Ho'wood, there's a hysterical piece about big producer and hair stylist Jon Peters in the current Vanity Fair.  Apparently Peters is literally an illiterate.  It's wild stuff.

That's a wonderful gallery of Camilla Ashland's DS performances, MB.  Now, if we just had a shot of her as Joanna Mills' landlady, the gallery would be complete!  Not that I'm dropping hints or anything...

I love the shot of Mrs P being welcomed by Liz, and seriously hoping that the luscious pair of legs I'm ogling to the right end of the frame *aren't* those of Roger Davis...

The costume ball sequence really was the high point of the movie, wasn't it?  I want to go home now and freeze frame my way through my VHS of the movie although that often just results in blurry, distorted images.

MB. this is truly priceless and beyond words hysterical--on every level!

It's like Martin Scorcese visits Collinsport.  Oh, the unbridled rage!  the steaming levels of testorone!

I'm loving the dreadful symphony of horrid fabrics represented by Bruno's ranch poodle jacket, Jeb's nightmarishly textured sweater, and the hair of both men, especially Jeb's raging carrot-top coiffure.

Unspeakably evil!

Thanks for those, MB.  Such great moments featuring that beacon of warmth and conviviality, Sarah Johnson!

You know too how much I adore today's snap of LeviaLiz at her most coldly hostile.  The yin and yang between Willie's delighted cluelessness and Liz's quietly seething asperity has always made this yet another favorite moment from the Leviathan story for me.

Just grand stuff...

Maybe it's practice for his re-staging of the Barnabas Collins: Attorney at Law segment from 1840???

Current Talk '10 I / Re: 91 DS on Chiller Next on 2/26

Hi Miss Winthrop, that series is actually called Thriller.  Some of the episodes were shown in a later evening slot (maybe on Thursday nights?) as the ABC Mystery Movie, I believe.  (The same slot in which Grayson's lost film with Diana Davila, The Two Deaths of Sean Doolittle, aired.)

I am hoping to get the remainder of the shows from the UK, since A & E never issued any of the remaining episodes over here in the US.  I love Diana Dors' episode, The Devil's Web (aka "Nurse will make it better")--it has a very DS feel to it...

I just watched a couple more clips from Penny's recent Season Seven, and does that gal ever deserve an award!

Unlike the horror hosts of yore, her jokes are actually funny--AND she's sexier, too!

Such a wonderful capture of Mrs Pettibone & Roger today--the nicest shot of this bit I've ever seen.  Love that we can glimpse Liz in the background as well.  I'm of course forgetting the actress who played Mrs. P, and her scene in Leviathan was just discussed too.  She had a wonderfully seedy way about her that of course comes through in a very different way of Mrs P who perhaps was Rockport gentry?

You know I really dig the snap of Mrs J in the other slide show today.  I just love that apron.

cheers, G.

Calendar Events / Announcements '10 I / Re: END OF THE ROAD (Grayson Hall)
« on: February 22, 2010, 06:07:04 AM »
I think "Road" got its rating due to such things as a brief flash of full frontal male nudity and a graphic abortion sequence.  The "adult themes" of Jack's casual sexual encounter ("veddy Noel Coward") with Grayson's character may have been part of the motivation as well.

Frankly, the movie is a mess, but might be one of those reclaimed by fans of mid-century offbeat explorations as a curio for deeper regard.

I saw that they have an entry for it (and the Mikey Douglas thing too) but I'm not sure whether either one is currently slated for video release.  They sometimes put placeholders up for films that may or may not be released in the coming months.

It's really too bad the footage for Grayson's deleted scenes from that movie were never recovered.  If a DVD came out with those, it would be a HUGE event in Hall-o-holic circles.
