I want a song for Julia.  It could sample Grayson's intoning "On your feet, or on your KNEES!" from her late Seventies commercial for Blue Oyster Cult--if the tape of that ever surfaces...

Another appropriate sample would be dialogue of the good Dr. reading Barn the riot act in one of those wacky '67 episodes.

What a great site!  I used to know a lady for whom Dark Shadows always meant Whip-n-Chill--she and her sister would make it up before the show was on, put the glasses in the fridge, and then enjoy it when the show was done.

That's cool to know that Thayer David appeared in two episodes of Kojak.  A friend was kind enough to remind me that he had seen one of these shows last year (unfortunately, I cannot recall the title), and here's his description of Thayer's appearance:

>>Thayer David's appearance on Kojak turned out to be a major letdown.  His character was shot to death in the first minute or so of the episode, giving him only scant screen time and maybe 3 or 4 lines.

He played a sleazy, drunken lout of a businessman.   His hair was the same shock-white color as in some of his other 70's roles.  He stumbled drunkenly through his brief scene, slurring his speech while carrying a cigar in one hand and a cocktail glass in the other.

He was in a small office browbeating his meek accountant (played by Eugene Roche) who was assisting Thayer's character in juggling the company books.  Thayer had embezzled a large sum from his own company and was ordering the accountant to help him cover it up.

Thayer was standing with his back to the window in the office, when a sniper in another building shot Thayer in the back, causing Thayer to drop lifeless to the floor in front of Roche's desk.  Roche called the cops and the remainder of the episode was the aftermath of the murder.   I FF'ed through the tape to see if there were any flashback sequences of Thayer, but there weren't.

I thought Thayer must have been desperate to accept such a tiny role.  I can see why they hired him though.  They needed a strong actor who would make a vivid impression very quickly."

I've seen guest appearances by Thayer David on several other 1960s and 70s series:  The Wild Wild West, Coilumbo, The Rockford Files, and Hawai'i 5--0.

Penny Dreadful, your cover art RAWKS!

And thank you for bringing the voluptuous strains of Kenya Collins to the wider DS fan community!

Groove on!

I've always wondered whether Thayer did one...

To Bette, Midnite and all, yes, I would love a good quality tape of this, but I am thrilled to have the one that I do have.

It was the gift of a kind, distinguished country gentleman... and I cherish both the gift, and his kindness to me.

What a hoot!  He actually somewhat resembles Quentin in those dreadful Gold Key comics.  (I always thought Quentin in those books looked more like Tasmanian pop star Engelbert Humperdinck than David Selby.)

An interesting detail is that the episodes with Sebastian Shaw (the DS character played by Chris Pennock (failed to see the light of day from their original broadcast in 1970 till the Sci Fi Channel's original broadcast of the series in the 90s.  They were part of a package of the final year of DS shows that World Vision never were able to syndicate.  I heard the high fee they wanted to charge was the reason, since a lot of the networks syndicating DS in the 70s and 80s were PBS stations.

I guess the creator of this character must have been quite a DS fan!

Great! so... any frank thoughts on the Majenta Jets and their Angelique song?  I think it said that they included a snippet of LP's actual dialogue from the show on it?

She was wonderful even though I think she barely gets five minutes of screen time. But she appears three times, so the good stuff is spread out...

GH actually managed to look frumpy in this!  Maybe one of the fans will manage to post screen captures...

Sorry to say I am just now seeing this announcement.  Very sorry I missed the show!

Apparently there was a band that did a song about Angelique a few years back.  I remember seeing a picture of Lara Parker posing with the band members in Shadowgram.  Now, I want to say that one of the people in the band was her son, but I could be completely wrong about that.  My memory is just crumbling to bits these days...

Back in 1969 or 1970 a single entitled "Barnabas Collins Love Bandit" was released.  Talk about a groovy ghoul!  (A discussed answer-disc, Quentin Collins Butt Pirate, apparently went nowhere, alas.)

Several years ago he had just produced another Dusty compilation, and at the DS Festival I went up to him and complained because he had included *all but one track* from Dusty's then very rare 1972 LP, See all her faces.  He didn't have much to say about it; for some reason he didn't just give me the answer I'd expected, that he'd had licensing issues including it.

Donna: David, I'm sorry, but the fanging thing just isn't working on you. [beat] Lela, maybe Johnny Karlen should give it a shot? When did Jon say he was going to be back from the Brittany?

The personality change is, if anything, even more definitively a part of Laura's 1966/67 story--which may be the best-produced of all DS's supernatural storylines.  It's a pity that fans who are waiting for the DVD's will have to wait several years to see these shows, but when you do--you're in for a treat!
