Well, I *did* notice the Lustful Lad's debut on the montage, but was far too raddled at work (we now have the operating system FROM HELL) to manage a post about it.

Can't wait for the appearance of some of the infamous FANGING pictures here!  yowza!

PS At first I thought you were referring to his birthday, but then I checked Sandor's post and saw that that's not until the 20th.  Chris Jennings would be relieved that it's the night of the New Moon this year!  arooooo!

Thanks for this link, Criseyde. These captures were really fascinating to see.  I recall seeing a clipping about this project when I was looking through Mr. Selby's file some years back at Lincoln Center and being curious just what it was.

TV movies can be hard to lay hands upon, especially ones that were pilots for series never picked up.  I still wish Thayer's Nero Wolfe pilot movie would be released--it's one of his finest performances and deserves to be seen by his many fans out in DS-land.

One telefilm I've still been unable to find is The Two Deaths of Sean Doolittle, a 1975 production with Grayson and Diana Davila in supporting roles, directed by Lela Swift, and starring the talented character actor, George Grizzard.  I suspect that it was done on videotape rather than film as was the case with many other features shown in the series of which it was a part, ABC Mystery Movie.

I know this has been rerun in some markets because it's been listed in some editions of the Leonard Maltin guide.  I keep hoping someone out there will show up with a copy some day.

Grayson put a lot of wit into her lines in certain scenes, as did Joan.  I loved it when Julia and Carolyn are discussing the new antique shop that's just opened in town; Carolyn's raving about how "divine" it is and then says something else about it, to which Julia ripostes "you don't make it SOUND very 'dee-VINE'" with this Holly Golightly elevated-eyebrow face that never fails to crack me up.

A lot of Magda's funniest moments were non-verbal.  I remember one scene where she's waiting for Barn to come out of his coffin with a very arch expression on her face and hands planted firmly on hips that's a scream.  Her shuffling of the tarot cards in a scene with Laura at the cottage is wonderful too and always indues fits of cackling.

Joan had so many fabulous moments in the first year of the series.  A great one from 1897 is a certain scene where rings up her husband, "Reverend" Gregory Trask, and informs him that thanks to certain arrangements she's made, he now has all the time he needs to meditate.  I just love Joan's delivery of that line and the expression on her face--it's the embodiment of "the cat that ate the canary."  Flawless.

Thayer David as Prof Stokes had some memorable zingers, too, particularly during the Cassandra Collins storyline (my personal all-time favorite DS storyline).  I loved whenever he referred to Cassandra as "our favorite Witch" or mentioned his own "cat complex."

What's this--Lost in Space without the infamous Dr. Zachary Smith??? Heresy!

Oh the pain--the pain!

Methinks somebody at the "WB" has been talking too much to a certain "bubble headed booby"!

Hi John!

Meant to tell you that I was discussing my thoughts about visiting Toronto with my buddy in Ottawa, and he mentioned that in their gay history archive, they have complete runs of Colt Magazine from the Sixties.  So if there's a Briscoe layout in there, I'll have the chance to look for it when I visit.

Maybe I'll even be able to make a photocopy, or better still, order a scan!

Best, Steve

Oh, my dear, don't you know what a fan I am of Jeb and his pet Naga?  (you think I'm joking, don't you?)

As for women showing their, um, assets, I believe that Parker's costume in NoDS (the movie) showed off what Grayson tactfully described as her "remarkable physical attributes" rather well.  Seems to me, though, that her dresses in PT1841 were designed so as not to show anything off, despite those potentially revealing necklines.

I'm not sure about others... Suki Forbes, perhaps???

Thanks for these gorgeous captures, MB!  Did you see Rhys Meyers in Gormenghast?  I do think he's too pretty and pouty for Barnabas, but he'd make an interesting Quentin, especially Quentin as the spoiled prettyboy of early 1897.

My housemate has become addicted to Smallville (which I alternate between calling Schlongville and Schlockville, depending upon how much skin Tom Welling has been showing on any given episode).  I told him that Ian Sommerhalder had been discussed as casting for the role of Barnabas, and the poor lad practically had a seizure!

I do think James Marsters would make an interesting Barnabas, with dark hair, of course, and a different look.  At least he has the needed theatrical traning to pull it off.  I fear there aren't very many people in the current WB stables of whom that can be said...

I also wonder whether the script Barn Undead was given is for real.  The summary reads like a MAD Magazine or Carol Burnett Show skit on the program.  At least it could be entertaining, which is saying a lot, these days.

I wonder whether the WB are hoping for product placement revenue from Keno and IHOP?

Ryan Seacrest's show is being taken off the air, so he is now available to play Barnabas.  A little long in tooth by the WB's standards, but what the hey.

Midnite, many thanks for posting these beautiful captures!  Looking at them with your witty captions is a lot more fun than watching the actual episode.  As it happens, I no longer have cable, so I missed seeing this.

Roddy MacDowell was such a gifted actor, I found it painful to see him reduced to parading about in a monkey suit delivering tosh.  But it did pay the bills.  Ever see his Sixties Golem film?  It's worth it just for Roddy's inspired scenery chewing.  One I have been trying to track down for years is the Ava Gardner cult film, Tam Lin, which Roddy *directed*.  I've heard it's very arty and interesting.

Of course, back in the Seventies, I could not foresee just how awful television would become a quarter century later.  Compared to the fare on offer now, this stuff looks pretty good. At least it's entertaining.

What a fascinating picture! Many thanks to Terry for posting it.

Does anybody out there have a photo of a framed Cassandra wig?  I know somebody out there must have one.  I would prefer the one that was re-used from Buzz' tenure on the show, but at this point, I will take what I can get.

Congratulations, David!  How FABULOUS for you!

Is there a website where we can see photos of you officiating?

I hope your day is simply grand!

Best wishes,

Steve

PS.  I am guessing there was a post on this thread that got deleted?

« on: February 17, 2004, 05:31:58 PM »
MB, it will come as no surprise to you that I agree with every word you wrote in this post.  These two episodes ARE classic.  Wonderful to relate, everybody in the cast is in top form for these days, the FX work beautifully, and everybody has a special moment.  Of course, special kudos go to Parker for a brilliant performance (even more so when that difficult makeup is involved--I would love to know how they worked the taping schedule for that), and Astredo for making Nicholas the most compulsively watchable, eee-vil villain in DS history.
