I wonder what the one-hour Friday night slot labelled "Surprise Dark Shadows screening" portends?

Hope anyone who's there can post a review.

In the script, [spoiler]if memory serves, it simply refers to Carlotta lying on her bed, one hand on her locket (the same locket A had given Sarah which had been passed down from Mother to Daughter and was supposed to contain the spiritual link to A), her face suffused with a blissful expression--Grayson's notes help explicate what is going on, and explain that Carlotta is meant to be the physical link through whom Q and A are able to have their trysts. [/spoiler]

It's an intriguing idea--too bad it was almost completely cut out of the existing edit, because a lot of the story fails to make sense unless you understand the specific nature of Carlotta's role in the "haunting."

Great news, and richly deserved!

I'd never heard of his appearance on Look up and live, a show of which I have very vague memories.  Interesting!

And that's a lovely photo of him, Nancy.  Congratulations!

Best,

Frid's appearance for a question put to Mama Cowsill on The Generation Gap (circa 1969?) is one I remember particularly vividly.

Grayson Hall was on an episode of Girl Talk in 1970 to promote hoDS... I think the episode no longer exists, but it's one of the Holy Grails for Hall fans.

I wish they had kept the scene that's in Grayson's copy of the shooting script of [spoiler]Carlotta lying on her bed having an orgasm while Quentin and Angelique are making love in the Tower. I think Grayson had a note that Carlotta, being the link that kept Angelique's spirit alive in the present (not something that was ever explained or even touched upon in the existing print apart from one line of dialogue that, as it stands, makes no sense), experienced physically the love that Q & A shared because of her connection to A. I thought that was a very cool concept ... and you know how we Grayson fans are about seeing our lady gettin' her groove on!  I don't know whether Sam Hall did this deliberately, but I am always struck by the fact that Carlotta is a female form of the name Charles, A's original lover in 1810; and Drake refers to dragons, to cthonic underworld energies, to things potent yet unseen...   [/spoiler]

Nothing like it was included in the footage Darren showed at the one Festival presentation I was able to attend, so I'm presuming that either they never shot it, or the footage failed to survive.

Great appearance by JF.  I always loved Arlene Francis.

Whoa!  Is it just me or does Quentin have MAJOR boudoir eyes in today's photograph?

I expected the capture to read:  "Carlotta, you're one red-hot mama, and I've had enough of your coy ways in those batwinged gowns.  Let's find a room and get to WORK, Woman!"

Maybe somebody can re-edit Grayson's scene from END OF THE ROAD with Selby instead of Jack Horner?  *wink*

Hey Borgosi,

I also donated a ponytail some years back to Locks of Love.  They're a wonderful group of people.

I was in NJ the weekend before last and the experience of attempting to navigate around on NJ Transit and PATH confirmed for me that I don't think I can manage the Festival this year.  I would love to have come to see my DS buddies.  It's too bad the people running the Festival decided they couldn't afford the Brooklyn hotel which was relatively convenient.

Have fun!  btw Seaview would be a long hike from there--getting there and back would be a very full day.  You might want to think about spending the night in Newport.

I think the original film of "The Night Stalker" represents DC's original vision of how he would have liked the vampire on DS to have been.  Since that movie was a huge hit and may even have been nominated for an Emmy (I honestly can't recall), there's no disrespect in stating this.  The vampire on "Stalker" does seem a lot closer to the image conjured up by the material I have read over the years about how Dan wanted the vampire on DS to be.  The reason why he did not wind up having more personal input on the original realization of Barnabas is that he was in England for some months in the late Winter and Spring of 1967, so the writers, for once, were left to do their own thing.

Writing the above, I wonder whether the way Tom Jennings was portrayed in the 1968 storyline showed some of Dan's influence.  I don't know how closely he was keeping tabs on the show at that time.  The hairpin twists and turns of the storyline during that period, to me, has Dan's name written all over it.

What wonderful memories!  Thanks, Midnite, for those links.

There's no note on the hotel website about a free airport shuttle.  Instead, they talk about cab prices to the train station and airport.

Doesn't PATH have an airport stop?  Sounds as if the most sensible way to get there is to take PATH to the airport and then hop a free shuttle.  Or, if the free shuttles turn out to be non-existent, take a cab (and make sure you budget the $30 bucks there and back for it).

I thought the Brooklyn hotel was fine.  THIS is simply Looney-tunes--as in Pepe le PEW!

The Hotel is actually located in Elizabeth (the one aspect that seems to fit with a Dark Shadows theme).  It's a 5.5 mile drive from Newark Penn Station.  The website says it is a $23 cab ride from the Airport to the hotel which seems to be comparable to how much a cab from the train station will cost.

Believe it or not, the hotel website describes the venue as "chic." 

FWIW, it seems to be smack dab in the middle of nowhere, off a highway that goes to the Newark Intl Airport.  Bring your granola and peanut butter sandwiches as the snooty waiters at the tiny hotel restaurant may run out of provisions when the place is jammed with tired, hungry conventioneers foraging for food in the great wilderness of the airport hinterland.
