The curse is that you only get to look--you can't touch.  *pout*

My personal fantasy is that the photos of Joel Crothers from the Seventies continue with less and less clothing until he is wearing nothing but a thong.  Now, that's MY idea of a Dream Curse!

Of course, my REAL fantasy would end with a happy, smiling, uh ... *festive* Joel *cheeky grin* in his best outfit, i. e., his birthday suit...

I think it's past time for the bulging Lieut. Forbes crotch floatie to make its next spectral appearance!

Thanks, Joe, for those photos.  Looks as if the ladies were having a wonderful time.

Thanks, Darren, for sharing the details about the Technicolor print you screened of hoDS.  It's too bad that DVD reviewers don't seem to pay as much attention to inaccurate color palettes as they do to screen ratios--but such is life.

The shot of Carolyn slumped on the floor discovered by Mrs J looks somehow specially filtered or graded on the videotape I have (which is derived from the laserdisc).  Whatever technique Ornitz used for that shot really packed a visual punch, I thought.  I appreciated your remarks comparing his work on hoDS with his previous work on Boys/Band. 

My congratulations to you on presiding over such a triumphant event!

best wishes,

Steve

It was probably hate mail from the fans.  Back then, they took the fan mail VERY seriously.  They re-tooled Leviathan halfway through based on the mail.

What a wonderful evening.  Even if not a technicolor wonder, being able to see hoDS in a film print as opposed to a projected DVD or other formatted disc must have been a wonderful experience.

I never saw NoDS in the theatre (we were out of town the one week it played in my local cinema--I remember well the poster showing up and how excited I was), and I'll admit I actually contemplated coming to SF for these screenings.

I remember the scene David describes with Angelique and Charles at the pf. and Laura coming in.   That is marvelous that the soundtrack has been fully restored!  A wonderful coup for Darren!

My personal guess is that it will be three to five years before Depp Shadows is completed and released (more likely to be five years, I would guess, given the schedules of Depp and Burton), and it will be a shame if we have to wait that long for Warners to release the 1970s feature films on disc.  But you know how the suits are.

Welcome to the Boards, MM#7.  I am also looking forward to hearing news of the screenings.  I'm sure it was a wonderful evening for everyone.

Please do feel free to express your thoughts about our favorite show and related projects here.  We have threads going on the original 1966-71 series, are currently cycling through episodes of the 1991 series on a one-episode-per-week schedule, and have had several discussions of the films as well.

Best wishes,

Gothick

For those who care--this was not a stage play, but an hour long drama transmitted in the "Bob Hope Chrysler Theatre" anthology series in October 1965.  The stars were Shelley Winters and Jack Hawkins. 

According to a recent notice on an IMDB board, episodes of the Chrysler Theatre are currently being broadcast on a new TV network, the "Retro TV Network."  Apparently there was an old syndication package from episodes of this show that was making the rounds back in the 1980s under a title something along the lines of Universal Star Theatre.  I suppose time will tell whether this episode eventually shows up.  I have contacted a number of vintage TV collectors and sales people over the years about this and nobody has ever had it.

MB, I wonder whether Carolyn got frostbite from that delightful "welcome" from the Lady Eve?

Of course, we all know that Miss Stoddard can give in the FREEZE dept. as good as anyone could get her (excuse snarled syntax) ... after all, she trained with the best ... Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, who can freeze like nobody's business!

Thanks for making me smile.  In Other News, what's up with today's front page image?  Looks as if Grayson was getting another pesky visit from everybody's favorite Extra, Miss Ima Fly!

Hey John, Happy Birthday!  May your day be just as FABULOUS as you are!

cheers!  Steve

Hi Darren, it all sounds tremendously exciting; wish I could be there!

Can you tell us more about the hoDS print you'll be screening?  It sounds fabulous!

Best luck,

Steve

I saw episode one.  It was not really my cup of tea.

What a deliciously adulatory tribute!  I love John Epperson aka "Lypsinka" and, needless to say, I adore the Divine RJ Jamison.

These are all fabulous, and how great to have a shot of Oberon!  I liked him so much better than the replacement Leviathan (can't remember his name) from that one episode with Marsha Mason.

The one of John Karlen against the Tarot card stained glass window is so gorgeous, I wonder whether Janet the Wicked could somehow send a copy of it to John Karlen himself?

When I loaned the DVD of Daughters of Darkness to a friend, I got an email a day or two later exuberantly informing me that Karlen should have had a career as a major Seventies pornstar!  I *think* Johnny would have taken that as a compliment...

Someday, there will be an Archival section of this site, with pages and pages of clippings just like these.

It may have to wait for the Mysterious Benefactor to retire, but it WILL happen...

cheers!  G.
