Well, just to add another layer to the puzzle, Grayson herself stated in at least one interview ca. 1970 that she *had* done this record.

It's possible that they recorded her for it, but then decided to use the other actress.  Who knows.  I wonder whether they have the original master tape in their vaults?

I can just persuade myself that it's her, particularly when she does the Chinese water torture thing... It just DOESN'T sound like her voice most of the time, though.

I want Old Acquaintance (Bette Davis vs. Miriam Hopkins), in ANY format.

As for Boom!, its brilliant elan and maverick kick-in-the-guts disregard for bourgeois conventions of narrative, characterization, and an audience's ability to withstand pages of Liz Taylor's shrillest invective, have placed it far beyond the pale of conventional standards of excellence.

But I digress...

This is all the funnier if you are aware of a mid Sixties interview in which Grayson mentions having been approached by the director to play in the Graduate.

She didn't mention which role, but I'm sure you know which one *I* see her in.

"Do you want me to SEDUCE you?"

Holy Cow! The Head Gargoyle got a bio, but not the brilliant drunk lady???

To quote Grayson herself:  "who can figure ANYTHING?"

Roger, I told you I wanted you in my ROOM three HOURS ago for my afternoon rinse and set.

Fortunately, Joe dropped by and I had HIM take care of it.

Toblerone is an extra high quality chocolate, traditionally made in long triangle-shaped sticks.  It gets high marks from some chocoholics.  I personally prefer Lindt or Ghirardelli's, but then I'm a fussy old luddite queen.

I can imagine Julia keeping a bar (or maybe 3 or 4) of Toblerone in a certain drawer of her desk at Wyndcliffe and indulging in same between gulps of espresso when things get too crazy at the old loony-hatch.

Hi Ian, it's lovely Diana Davila, who played Julianka, a Rom (Gypsy) woman who comes to Collinsport on a very special mission.

Since you mentioned that you missed the Count Petofi storyline, you probably did not get to see her. She was only in a couple of episodes.

I've never seen that. Is that the one about the troupe of showgirls living in Mrs Gilmore's boarding house?  I only ask for reference purposes.

Are we worried about Dark Shadows addiction being associated with toblerone theft and chocoholism, a growing problem in today's America?

Just tried now and got the message that I am only allowed one vote and I am not allowed to see the results.

So that's OK!

Thanks Ian!

I voted yesterday and each time received the message that I was not allowed to see the results of the poll.

It seems as if one can vote as many times as one wishes to do so.  Did you intend that?  Because some TROLL might sit there for hours on end mindlessly clicking on Goddess knows what if it thinks it will irritate people by doing so.

I really have to wonder whether the Dark Shadows Addict and I were separated at birth, given his choice of videoclips.  He chose two of my top favorite scenes between Grayson Hall and Lara Parker for their respective nomination clips, AND he chose a Count Petofi sequence for Thayer's clip!

My hat's off yet again to the genius of the Dark Shadows Addict!  (and I'm happy to say those clips played just fine today)

That's a lovely collage, Jackie, and the original one you did with Joe is great, too.

I recently decided that some of the best acting in the whole of DS was in the 1966 early courtship between Joe and Maggie scenes--and I'm not particularly a fan of KLS.  I think the rapport between the actress and Crothers made her relaxed enough to give from a more authentic place in those scenes.  Just my opinion.

Best wishes,

Steve

This is WONDERFUL!  And boy, did I need THAT.

I wish there was a blooper of this where Jules slugged Cass and knocked her wig off and it went flying and landed on somebody else's bald pate!

I asked Lara Parker back at an early 90s Festival whether that was a real slap (it looks real to me) but she couldn't remember.
