I just watched these episodes (on my handy videotapes, which are around ten years old but still play beautifully) and I thought The Briscoe was HAWT in that white turtleneck.

Sandor, did you see the one where Chris and Carolyn had come in after spending the evening out, and Chris talks about how "relaxed" he feels, and Caro has a line something like "Are you relaxed, Chris?" and he gives her a mischievous smile and says words to the effect of "Yes, and you should know why!"  I thought the actors were playing the scene as if there had been some hanky-panky between the two at that point, although my guess is Caro was too shrewd to let Chris go further than second base (lucky gal).

Too bad there was no scene of Chris lounging around the Cottage in a lurid bikini-brief bit of shorts--and nothing else!

Current Talk '04 II / Re: Using Footage of Joan Bennett's Movies on DS
« on: September 28, 2004, 05:45:46 PM »
Funny you should bring this up... I just watched The Secret Beyond the Door, which was filmed in the late 1940s and directed by Fritz Lang, and of course starred JB.  If the rights thing had been able to be worked out, and, of course, had the ABC technicians had better editing equipment available to them (you would not believe the editing set-up they had in 1967), it would have worked perfectly to have had a couple of snippets from Secret Beyond the Door as part of the 1949 flashbacks.

It's tempting to think of Secret as a lost episode of DS.  It has larger-than-life performances by a great ensemble cast (I particularly enjoyed the performances by Natalie Schafer and Anne Revere).  Michael Redgrave could be Barnabas with a slightly more raw, psychotic edge.  And Joan's voiceovers throughout really do give you that "Collinwood" feeling.

Sadly not available on DVD, but the VHS I got from the library looked gorgeous.

Jean-Claude, darling, put me on the guest list for your next bash.  I adore the hostess--AND her *divine* eyelashes!

I want a loop of Grayson saying the word "divine" in that Leviathans episode I can play on my computer when the minutiae of life grinds away at my last nerve.

Ooh, Vicki and Maggie set up a kinky girls clubhouse!  I dig it!  I always found that scene in that episode very poignant, given what I already knew the first time I watched it as an adult (I think I missed that episode during the original b'cast--I have this memory of being disappointed tuning in the day after and missing the spectral appearance of you-know-who).

I always thought they needed some scenes of the girls just hanging out, spinning 45s on their groovy little portable, burning incense sticks, maybe getting together some of the outasite snacks we used to have back then (anyone remember Whip 'n' Chill?), and razzing on one another's boyfriends ("Can you believe Joe took me out to that dump, the Blue Whale, AGAIN?")  It might have been fun to have them looking at the pin-ups in 16 magazine, too, sighing over Bobby Sherman, Paul Revere, and Sajid.

Beautiful work, DS to DA!  I thought the choice of clips and the music were woven together with exquisite grace.

More delighted ravings after I've run the promo about 500 times on my computer...

Calendar Events / Announcements '04 II / Oscars '65
« on: September 24, 2004, 08:32:15 PM »
Just thought I would ask this here, since there are a few knowledgeable collectors who come here from time to time:

Does anyone know a reasonably priced, reliable source for the 1965 Oscar broadcast video?  I know it's available somewhere, as I have seen jpgs from it on the Net.

Grayson Hall was present at the ceremony, and I read that she had in her personal collection a photograph of herself taken in the audience when her name was announced as a nominee for Supporting Actress.

Feel free to mail me off the boards at my email address:  shutt at fas dot harvard dot edu.

Many thanks,

Steve

Thanks for that link, Darren--I hadn't spotted that.

Boy, there sure are a lot of spoilers in that review!

Think I'll wait to borrow the library copy of this book.

Ooh, it's Miss October Penthouse Playmate!

Actually, I'll probably be up on the Farm in Ontario with my boyfriend that weekend.  In any event the LA fests are pretty much beyond my budget.  But I'll be there in spirit...

Will there be an official shopping expedition to Prada?

The thought of the footwear choices makes my head reel!

Current Talk '04 II / Re: 1991 Series Questions
« on: September 21, 2004, 03:49:08 PM »
There's an announcement in the latest Shadowgram email stating that MPI is about to let the 1991 series videotapes go out of print.

It mentions that the first volume in the series includes 15 minutes of footage not aired on the original NBC b'cast.  I have no idea whether Sci Fi aired the "restored" version during their b'cast of the series a few years back.

The tapes are available "for a limited time only" at $9.98, so get thee to MPI's website if thou so desirest...

feeling Elizabethan,

Calendar Events / Announcements '04 II / Living Dead Luau!
« on: September 20, 2004, 11:05:44 PM »
The Mysterious God's sublime new montage reminds me (checking our handy site calendar) that tonight, Monday 9/20, is the Living Dead Luau at the DS Forums!

To add a comment that's at least a bit on topic, I recently viewed the Del Tenney cult classic, I eat your skin (and then Chef Emeril kicked it up a notch with some cajun bones!).  The original title of this flick was ZOMBIES.  In my early teenhood this tasteful (?) gem was paired in innumerable drive-in theatres with the much more graphic I drink your blood, which I have yet to see.

I eat your skin was originally released in 1964 and has a campy score in the school of Les Baxter.  What makes it oh so very slightly on topic is that writer-director-producer Del Tenney appeared opposite Grayson Hall in another early Sixties cult classic, Satan in High Heels.

awaiting the ukulele of the Undead,

By all the Gods, these are GORGEOUS.  I'm slowly working my way through the different parts.  Don looks so close, it's as if I could touch him (or take a lick of that yummy tongue).

I agree with you about that first outfit G is wearing.  I have a lovely portrait of her wearing that outfit, that I bought at the last DS Festival.

You've got me wishing I could afford to buy the DVDs!

Thanks, Steve

DS to DArling,

this looks like a treat!  I love the logo capture you did! Fabulous!  Grayson looks so Forties noir.

You're sooo good to us!  but we deserve it, right???

Well, the draftsmanship alone is superb.  You deserve an A just for that.

FWIW, there is a photo of Jonathan Frid wearing a tight pair of bathing trunks, with Louis Edmonds on the beach.  It's in Craig Hamrick's biography of Louis, BIG LOU.  Looks as if it dates to around 1968-69. Those trunks show that a coffin in the basement wasn't the only substantial secret dear Barnabas kept tucked away at the Old House.
