Weren't Clarice Blackburn and Humbert Astredo also on Edge of Night at one point?

I recall inquiring about the 1960s and 1970s episodes of this series and being told by more than one confident authority that the tapes had been wiped back in the day.  But I always suspected that complete runs did exist for this, and other shows, in the studio vaults.

Outasite!  I'll be there Saturday afternoon.

Groovy!  Thanks for all the help!

For some reason I thought that hotel was in Park Slope and that Bklyn Heights was a major schlep away.  And I've actually been to Bklyn a few times--last time was about 5 years ago, I guess.

Thanks, MSC.  As a vegetarian, I am afraid fish and chips do not really... cut the mustard?

MSC, do you know whether there are any Indian restaurants in the Borough Hall vicinity?

thanks, Steve

Current Talk '06 II / Re: "1995" episode 1062 Jean Flagler

I've seen several pictures of "Shirl" way back when and I don't think she "played" Jean.

I saw this news earlier today, and I'm thrilled that Jonathan is sharing such a treat with the fans!  Shows just how generous he is.

Just a reminder that those who wish to let him know how happy they are about the new video can do so on the guestbook feature on his website.

Well, one possibility would be the Queen of Swords.  I can see how a female aristocrat of the late 18th century raised in the Roman Catholic faith might regard such a woman with deep suspicion.  Just a shot in the dark from me, though.

She draws one in her first episode of 1795 that she calls "the Wicked Woman" but there is no such card in the Tarot.

I know it's just trying to make excuses for poor research by the DS writers, but my theory is that "the Wicked Woman" is Natalie's name for one of the traditional cards in the old Marseilles deck.  I think on DS they used the Swiss JJ deck (so called because it has Jupiter and Juno instead of the Emperor and Empress) which technically was not printed until, I think, 1808?  but again, perhaps the Countess had a friend who get hold of an early version of that deck for her.

I'm sure that's far more than you wanted to know on this topic!

RJ will be selling it at the Festival, and I do encourage those who will be attending to plan on buying it there.  You'll save on postage AND be able to get the author herself to sign it!

For those who are interested, I wrote a review of the book on the Barnes and Noble page for it.  There is a page for it now on Amazon, as well.

Best, Steve

Well basically as far as I am concerned, NOBODY can play Grayson.  I just typed in Meryl because she actually knew and worked with the Divine One (they did a Broadway musical together, as chronicled in The Book!).

I could go with Cate Blanchett, or that cute redhead who played the best friend in that Todd Haynes 1950s race melodrama.  ANYBODY EXCEPT Nicole Kidman.  Please...

Congratulations!

And now my fingers itch to type "Soon to be a major Hollywood motion picture starring Meryl Streep!"

Happy birthday, you loveable doombuggy, you!

MB, I think an excellent example of what you were talking about with less-than-stellar performers sharing screen space with excellent ones who then make an amazing moment of what seems on the surface to be unpromising dross is the sequence where [spoiler]Jeff Clark goes to Professor Stokes to learn how to regress back through to the Eighteenth century.[/spoiler]

I've been meaning to track that scene down again for years--I've only viewed it a couple of times, but my memory is that Thayer brought real magic to that moment.  His invocation to the powers of the herbs is one of the rare instances where DS came close to an accurate reflection of a serious magickal practice.

There are no entire storylines that I refuse to re-watch as a whole.  I seem to watch the series differently from most others because as far as I am concerned, the plots and scripts varied wildly throughout--there are marvelous moments, to my taste, right in the middle of the most ridiculous plot arcs, where somehow everything clicked on a specific day with the writing, the actors and the direction.

Basically any scene with Roger Davis challenges my nerves.  My finger starts to itch towards the fast forward button.  I'm getting the same way with poor well-meaning Hallie Stocks.  A lovely girl and no doubt a very nice person, but her voice makes me heave and her attempts at acting are very alarming.

cheers, Gothick
