Agree in spades about Nancy Barrett's fantastic talent and range, but I have to share the THRILL I get with the first sight of Dr. Julia Hoffman!  I'll never forget the excitement when I got to see this episode for the very first time in an early syndication run for DS on Philadelphia's channel 48 in 1976. I'd missed all these the first time around since I didn't start watching till 1968.

I didn't realize that Grayson's first show fell so close to the series' first anniversary.  That's pretty groovy!

Going back to Nancy, her performance as Carolyn Loomis in PT '70 was so exquisitely layered and nuanced, I often think it's my favorite of all her roles on the series.  The same goes for Thayer David's seedy Tim Stokes.  Brilliant!

These are fabulous.  I love the shot of Miss Hopewell.  I often wonder whether that actress and Grayson knew one another. That's certainly a very "Graysonesque" expression on her face!

How exciting to see Claude North in action!  I hope our very own Jean-Claude is able to see these.  I know how devoted to Claude he is.

I'm laughing hysterically here!  Love Chipmunkalique! and Pepe's incantation... who know that Jombi was in "the family"??

xo, G.

So Lara Parker is the same age as my Mom.  Interesting.

What's even stranger is that my Mom and Grayson were carrying babies at exactly the same time in 1957/58; Matt Hall was born about 3 weeks after I was.

Talk about DS synchronicities!

What a delightful set!  I particularly enjoyed the appearance of the immortal Thayer David in one of my favorite roles of his, the seedy, sleazy Tim Stokes.

The contrast between the two shots of Nancy at beginning and end of the series strike a poignant note...

These are missing from my collection, so it was particularly interesting to read your notes on them.  Sounds like I'm not missing much, particularly with that first one.

Seems to me that there's a juicy Liz/Burke confrontation scene over the whole Logansport business, so I guess the subplot isn't a total waste of space.

Fine work, as always!

Is anybody else besides me (perv that I am) cracking up over "Jeff has a very strange reaction to Joe" and "Jeff has a dream about Nathan"?

God... love stories *always* make me cry.

Fabulous work again, MB!  Love the snap of mess-in-a-dress Carolyn falling apart surrounded by studs at the Blue Whale in Episode Two.  "Mother! WHY do I have to CHOOSE??"

Congratulations, MB!  This is a STUNNINGLY cool idea!  You'll have me really regretting that I am going to be offline for at least four days over the holiday weekend!

Best wishes,

Wow-- a new slideshow every day? now THAT's an embarassment of riches!

I love it that both Buzz AND Magda appeared in the very first one!

MB, I'm just loving the anniversary slide show!

If anybody asks you why you created it, you can arch an eyebrow and intone:  "Because I CHOOSE to do so!"

birthday hugs, G.

MB darling, didn't the *first* episode of DS debut at 3:30 p.m.?  sorry to be persnickety...

Happy Birthday to my favorite show!  DS Rules!

I realize this is totally OT, but I have to comment that I just adored David Groh's furry chest on Rhoda.

mmmm... MANFUR! *growl*

There are a lot of people out there who think it is among the greatest hororr films of all time.  Frankly, the score and stylisation got on my nerves, and the extreme violence directed against hapless women characters did not please me at all.

I do enjoy Joan Bennett's scene as Coven Matriarch.  Jean-Claude does a mean version of those lines.
