That column had me more relieved than ever that I don't watch TV any more.

On the other hand, yesterday I saw a trailer for the new Eastwick series and Paul Gross is looking mighty, mighty fine...

Hope it all goes safely and smoothly.

Very sorry to hear this, Annie.  A close friend of mine was laid off where I work.  He's still looking for a job and it was four months ago.  It's quite a haul.

Best of luck and I second Lydia's thought about getting out and seeing your friends.  It will help with your morale if nothing else.

At least they saved the best for last.

So, Barnabas Collins' inner monologue sounds just like a Valley Girl.  And he always seemed so ... courtly!  *wink*

For those who doubt the accuracy of Markyboo's scenario above, check out this newish BBC series (part of it aired on NBC last summer, I am told), Merlin.  It's technically yet another spin on the old King Arthur legends but EVERYONE, including Arthur, Guinevere and Merlin himself, is a teenager!  Anthony Stewart Head plays Uther, Arthur's natural father in the old legends who was supposed to have died when Arthur was still a baby and was given to loyal knight Sir Ector to foster as a brother to his own son Kai.

The Stan Hywet Hall would make a fabulous new Collinwood, MB.  Great choice!

Poor Ian Somerhalder with his fried hair and botox difficulties...

Another possibility is the family dinner party with Laura in early 1967.

I wish they had done more scenes like that...

Calendar Events / Announcements '09 II / Happy Birthday Grayson Hall
« on: September 18, 2009, 07:14:56 PM »
Fans, Today is Grayson Hall's birthday!

Here's a glass of very dry sherry to a rare lady--"gutsy broad" to some, "Earth Mother" to others, epitome of wit, sophistication and glamour to her staunchly loyal "Legionnaires"...

We miss you, Darling.  Here's to you and your special day!

There's a scene early in PT 1970 where Hoffman has prepared dinner for Mr. and Mrs. Collins in the Drawing Room.  I don't recall salt and pepper shakers on the little tray, but they might have been there.  I would guess that these items might have been acquired originally for use in 1897 but I'm trying to recall when anyone was shown having a meal that involved a proper table setting?

What a wonderful gift.  However, in the build-up, I was expecting something related to Mrs. Isles--perhaps an autographed photo from her?

Best wishes,

G.

Many Thanks, Doctor and K-9, for sharing what you have here about the new discs.  Too bad MPI couldn't be bothered to mix and master the clips properly.  Par for the course, I'm afraid.  Glad you got such a good deal on the discs!

Best,

G.

I checked DVD Talk a couple of days ago to see if there was a review, but didn't see one.

I might check these out via Netflix some day just out of curiosity.

The Gold Key comic books are "classic"??

Sheesh.

Makes you wonder what is next going to be trotted out as a "classic" just because it's a moldy-oldy.  

Perhaps the volume can contain a prominently placed apology to Jonathan Frid, Grayson Hall, David Selby, Thayer David, Joan Bennett, Lara Parker and anyone else whose likeness was so horribly, garishly caricatured in the pages of those mags.  I remember Selby looking like Engelbert Humperdinck doing a screen test for the Tasmanian Devil...

cheers, G.

Anyone have any idea who the actor who is standing behind Chris Pennock's left shoulder (i. e. to his right from the viewer's p. o. v.)?  You can barely see him in this shot, but he has a long drooping moustache and an interesting and somehow, vaguely familiar face.

It's not James Storm on his other side, is it?

cheers, G.

The fab early 1970s newspaper comics by that lovely artist whose name I can never remember used Lyndhurst as Collinwood, too.  And I'm sure I have seen Lyndhurst on DS t-shirts--probably movie themed ones.  The house has its own fan base although I'm not familiar with anyone arguing that it could somehow supplant the "real" Collinwood--people cherish it if they have positive memories of the movies.

I'm sorry Lockwood Matthews isn't better known.  It's a really fun place to visit.

Calendar Events / Announcements '09 II / Joan Bennett Anecdote

There are a couple of fun mentions of Joan Bennett in this tribute written by David del Valle honoring the late, great Natalie Schafer:

I do love the line:  "Joan Bennett does not have best friends."  Fun stories about Joan Crawford, too.
