In an episode about 3 or 4 weeks after Vicki's return to 1968 from 1795, Barnabas tells Julia something like "the past is constantly being relived and re-enacting, even as we stand in this room..."  When I've watched that scene, I've thought of it as the writers giving a wink and a nod to viewers who bothered to pay attention to the continuity, and an acknowledgement that quite a lot of Barnabas' backstory had been drastically changed in the wake of the 1795 storyline.

Luciaphil's Idle Thoughts '05 / Re: Hide-n-Seek -- Episodes 83 & 84
« on: June 02, 2005, 03:57:04 PM »
Luciaphil darling,

as always, reading you is a highlight of the day, the week, the month, the year...

I love your description of the "closed off wing" and its resemblance to a "fire sale."  You're right, of course; it is beyond strange that a woman with Liz's character would let the house go to pot like this.  I think it is meant to be "read" symbolically as a physical expression of the moral, financial, and familial decay of the Collins family.  Behind the impressive facade of Collinwood, there are rooms full of broken-down, useless furniture and the junked remains of cartloads of heirlooms.  Reminds me of one of my favorite lines in Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte (which I am informed is about to be released on DVD)--Mary Astor's character is given the line, "all I have left is ruined finery."

Just have to add that I think KLS was really quite marvelous in those scenes with Joe.  Crothers was his usual stellar self, of course.  Gave me rather a pang to read the phrase, "the doomed Joe Haskell"--made me think of how he ended up.

best, Steve

Believe it was diCenzo who had the gutsy broad line... and the story on Grayson being in that bar was from Costello.  The transcript was published in TWODS--I'll fax it to you.

5269
Julia darling, you're thinking of the transcription of Bob Costello's talk at a DS festival back in the Eighties.

I don't believe Gross ever interviewed George di Cenzo, but I could be wrong...

... and those of us of a certain generation (sometimes called the Ancient Blood, haha) wonder whether this is any relation to the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate award bestowed weekly on "Laugh-In."

Thanks for sharing this good news, Midnite.  I don't recall seeing that shot of Grayson on the balcony before.  The lighting really reminds me of the scene in the 1967 storyline where Julia surprises Barnabas in her boudoir and rolls out her famous "I've been waiting for you a long, LONG time" shtick.

Absolutely gorgeous shot of Chris and Thayer at the top, too--another one I don't recall having seen before.

What a great site!

These pictures are PRICELESS!

I just love the shots of her clutching that phone for dear life!  Poor dear, she's not the only one who needs something to hang onto in life.

The one of her cracking an impish grin and looking sideways is too cute!

"Really, I'm not an... ANSWERING SERVICE, you know!"  Love it!

Many thanks again for sharing these wonderful images, Midnite darling.

Grayson reminisced about her and Telly's improv work that created the "coffee cup scene" on Kojak during the "Grayson Gathering" of August 1982.

Darren, thanks for mentioning this.  I haven't seen any of Jackman's projects (the ones I have heard about have all been the kind of blockbuster things that put me to sleep) but I *have* been wanting to see him in something because I'm so intrigued by what the Divine One would call his "physical attributes."

I'll be sure to put Kate & Leopold on my list of movies to rent!

Thanks,

Steve

OMG, there are two scenes in this showing that aren't on my tape of the episode!

*Steve bounces up and down in elderly scholar's version of happy dance*

I'm sure that GH herself considered those clothes frumpus maximus!  The curlers in the wig are a hoot!

5276
Wow, Midnite, that scene of Grayson on the phone in the peignoir isn't on my tape of the episode! and you know what a fetish I have for any scene involving the Divine One and the Instrument...

that does indeed look like John Harkins in C & L...

Heather Dahling,

may your Birthday prove as utterly Divine as your fabulous Self!

Sweetie, give yourself a little luxury--you've earned it, Dahling!

Although my interest in a revival is minimal (I'll be polite and not term it "morbid curiosity"), I did respond to the survey.

The reports of a recent miniseries on one of the networks, something called "Revelations"(?) that sounded very campy and OTT, do suggest that there could be room for something along the lines of DS on one of the schedules.  Doing it as a 6 or 9 episode miniseries might soften the blow of the tremendous cost of producing it, particularly compared to the enormously popular "reality" shows they roll out for peanuts.

The other way it could be done is like Carnevale on HBO.  I haven't seen that either, but friends who watched gave it very high marks.

Well, now they ARE showing up!

And they're gorgeous!  Thanks for sharing.

The one for End of the Road is so clever... love the bottle!

I think Briscoe would have made an excellent Jake!
