Current Talk '08 I / Re: Who invented Angelique?
« on: April 17, 2008, 04:57:02 PM »
Sam Hall wrote the first script in which Angelique appears, and spoke of having created her among other characters for the show in an interview segment he did for one of the DVDs.

The idea of Barnabas becoming one of the Living Dead because of a Witch's curse was probably Dan Curtis' idea, though--he seems to have had a lot of strong opinions about where the show should go and even very detailed things about what should happen.

A very warm welcome, Jonathan!  You won't get any argument here about how wonderful your own site is.  It's unquestionably a fan favorite!

cheers, Steve

Nice to see someone acknowledge the superior craftsmanship of Diana Millay and Thayer David, since they're both so often overlooked in writings about the show intended for the masses.

But where the hell did he get "Bob Corbett" out of Robert Cobert?

cheers, G.

I loved how Vicki's theme from 1966 was re-orchestrated (with cheesy lounge arrangements) for the flip side of the "Ode to Angelique" 45 and retitled ... "Missy" (!!)

I just imagine an enraged Carolyn Stoddard confronting Vicki as she's returned from another evening of burgers and intrigue at the Blue Whale with Burke Devlin, jabbing her finger at Miss Winters and snarling, "Just who do you think you ARE ... MISSY???"

Ah, one of those scenes we can imagine and recall the lines by Keats: 

Heard melodies are sweet
but those unheard are sweeter still!

cheers, G.

My dear Mrs. Peel,

May life bring you all the elegance, charm, wit and vivacity that your name enshrines for us all!

cheers and Happy Birthday!

Golly.  They really screened a Davis real estate video?  Whew.

We can get real estate commercials from Roger Davis, but no Grayson Hall Playtex commercial?  That's just wrong.

I also have to wonder what Jim Pierson was thinking when he scheduled that Sciography segment to air during that Festival banquet.

Surely an individual with even a modicum of social instinct would be able to understand just how upsetting the completed segment would be for the actors and many of the fans?

Can someone refresh my memory and tell me who Ice-T is again?

I *think* he's a rap artist who dabbled in acting along the way.

I have a morbid curiosity to see that Sciography segment.  I remember thinking when they were sending out press releases asking for fans to be interviewed and they were looking for a fan who slept in a coffin and thought they were Barnabas or Angelique, "HELL will feeze over before *I* ever go before a camera for that bunch!"

cheers, G.

Thanks, Mysterioso darling, for letting me know!

Hope you had lots of cake for your special day!

So, tonight is the new episode of Moonlight?  I might try to check it out.

Best wishes,

The episode where Vicki persuades Liz to go into town to try to help Carolyn is one of the best.  Joan Bennett was incredible.  What a great actress.  Moltke and Barrett were also fabulous in that one, of course.

Happy Birthday!

I'm not an Aries, but I *am* a huge Emma Peel/Avengers fan.  I'm also a huge fan of Honor Blackman and have been revisiting some of Linda Thorson's shows recently and finding them better than I had remembered (both in terms of Thorson's performance and as shows).  I also recently discovered Julie Stevens who appeared as Venus Smith in a few episodes during the 1962-63 season.

A friend told me that there are discussion boards where you can write reviews and share chat with fellow fans on A & E's "Original Avengers" site.  If I have the chance to check it out, I'll post the link in this thread.

I think that although the Avengers had a much more substantial budget and much glossier production facility than DS, both series share a number of attributes in common, including the ability to deploy distinguished veteran character actors in juicy guest roles and a look, sound, and style that become iconic.  Each in its own way, both also were definiing exemplars of facets of the mid to late Sixties cultural ethos.  I'm very pleased to see that both shows continue to find new fans!

G.
