Current Talk '03 II / Miss Fellows, I Presume
« on: August 19, 2003, 02:30:12 PM »
I just love 1995, and one of the many reasons is that Grayson is in nearly EVERY episode!  Heaven on Earth for those of us diehard Hall-o-holics in the audience.

The Divine One, twenty-four-seven.

I was quite struck by the lower right hand corner snapshot of Grayson.  The tilt of her head and the slightly maniacal smile twisting across her lips reminds me so much of her performance as Judith Fellows in Night of the Iguana.  Am I completely off my mark (wouldn't be surprising given what I've been through this past week) or do other Graysoniacs in the audience also note the resemblance?

OK, I just took a look at the capture on the montage, and I'm betting dollars to doughnuts that this is NOT a young Grayson Hall.  It just bears no resemblance to her, and the young pictures of her I have seen have a very different style from this.  I actually thought it looked like a headshot of a younger Lisa Richards.

just my two drachmae,

Steve

Well, I have seen photos of Grayson from the Forties, and, as I recall it, the Jean Flagler photo looks completely different.  A friend asked me the last time 1995 was broadcast whether I thought that was an old headshot of GH's from her Shirley Grayson days--I did not think so. I can have another look, though, at some point.  Once I unpack my Dark Shadows tapes (I just moved).

Or perhaps some kindly soul could post the jpg here...

Thanks, MB.  Well, the quiz was fun.  I didn't answer the oral/anal question.  It would have been nice if they had had a setting for "versatile."

The little sign under your name is now informing me, in addition to my ISP code and browser status, that "there is no spoon."

I think the ghost of Douglas Adams is haunting you.  Either that, or you're a Zen monk in your spare time these days.

btw--you're not thinking of going to NYC for the big do-do, are you?

Current Talk '03 II / Another olive, Barnabas?
« on: August 12, 2003, 05:01:20 PM »
Today's montage (8/12) has me in stitches! Barnabas looks as if he just unintentionally swallowed his martini olive in that upper right hand corner snapshot!  way to go MB!

So... are we all ready to party like it's 1995?

Well, I almost never take these things, but you've goaded me into it.  I didn't answer some of the questions because, frankly, they were idiotic (that whole mouse thing at the end eluded me).  This is what it came up with:

POLITICIAN
(Dominant Extrovert Abstract Thinker)

 Like just 5% of the population you are a POLITICIAN (DEAT)--forceful, outgoing, and forward-looking. You are strong-willed and extroverted, so you enjoy interacting with other people. You aggressively pursue your goals.

Your creative style of thinking allows you to come up with unusual arguments and original ideas that appeal to others, but behind it all is an analytical mind that never forgets the bottom line. While some might see you as manipulative, your close friends know you are a talented person who deserves the best in life.

Whatever. You *are* manipulative. Whether you use your power for "good" or "bad", it's up to you. If you're confused what good or bad means, ask a HEALER. Like EXPERIMENTERS, you have a propensity for cheating.

btw, I think statements that begin with such phrases as "like 5 % of the population" can be described as spin, pure and simple.

There's another word to describe these statements, but it's more appropriate to a barnyard than a civilised forum such as this.

And, OK, so I only shook your hand, but I have very good instincts about these things--trust me, darling.

I'm pondering coming in for the day on the Sat.  If I do, it will all be very last minute.  I'm moving this coming weekend, and am reaching my wits' end (they don't extend very far--trust me).

I probably won't actually register for the Festival, since I imagine they are doing the same idiocy with pre registration that they did last time.  If I go, I will just sit in the lobby and look for some old friends I only get to see on these occasions.

My most darling Mysterioso, you may have the brain of a hot shot programmer and the hands of a lover, but I have it on good authority that you have the soul of a poet.

Your admirer,

Current Talk '03 II / Re: "Ms. Ideal Ghoul" Beauty Contest
« on: August 11, 2003, 04:07:16 PM »
Well, the voting seems to have ended, but I would have gone for Leona Eltridge.  Not only is she a regular scream, I've always been convinced that "she" was really "he," which means I might have actually GOTTEN somewhere with my "Ms. Ideal Ghoul."  (I know I'm a sick puppy...)

In terms of acting, the 1967 Laura wins, hands down.  I just packed my DS tapes and I have some episodes from her storyline as aired on Sci Fi that I haven't watched yet.  I'm looking forward to watching those once I'm moved.  "New" DS episodes are always wonderfully soothing to my frayed nerves.

Calendar Events / Announcements '03 II / 1959 credit for Grayson Hall
« on: August 08, 2003, 05:10:02 PM »
Dear fans,

Grayson was in my thoughts yesterday, so I decided to check her IMDB listings.  I was delighted to discover a newly entered credit for a TV show appearance she did in the US Steel Hour anthology series, in 1959.  On a date that's remarkably easy for me to remember; it's the day that my one and only sister was born.

United States Steel Hour (ran from 1953 through 1963)

"Wish on the Moon" Episode: #6.23 - 29 July 1959
Peter Brandon .... Hal Peterson
Peggy Conklin .... Miss Boyce
Joe De Santis .... Mr. Albright
Peggy Ann Garner .... Frances Barclay
William Gaxton .... Barney Goodwyn
Grayson Hall .... Secretary (as Shirley Grayson)
Gerald Hiken .... David Thorn
Emily Kimbrough .... Radio Commentator
Biff McGuire .... Gil Wayne
Erin O'Brien (I) .... Olivia Beech

While looking through the other listings for this series, I spotted an appearance by Thayer David in a 1957 episode.  Unlike poor Grayson, his character did have a name.  I wouldn't be surprised if other DS cast members appeared in this series, particularly such folks as Louis Edmonds and Clarice Blackburn.

If anybody has any ideas how I could get hold of a tape of this, I'd be thrilled to hear about it.

Thanks, Robin.  I do hope you and your husband have a wonderful time on your cruise. I'm glad you're getting away for some time together!

Current Talk '03 II / The Shocking Truth about TV Guide
« on: August 07, 2003, 08:21:49 PM »
Just now I happened to have a look at TV Guide's blurb (on their schedule pages) for DS, and I was *appalled* to see that they listed the cast of the 1991 remake for the cast of the series currently being broadcast on Sci Fi.

Such infamy!  and it's all so sordid...

Somebody is clearly too busy airbrushing beefcake graphics from The O. C. to bother with the few bits of quality left on the air.

Current Talk '03 II / Re:The Seance and the Hatpin
« on: August 07, 2003, 07:25:25 PM »
Heavens, I think there could be a special post just on folks who were fans of DS way back during the original broadcast and used to have our own seances in the basement after we finished watching the show.

I still remember this one we had in my basement, when I was convinced I saw a face forming on a back wall of the cellar.  It frightened me so much we never had one again.

Nowadays, of course, I'm so jaded that whenever Something shows up uninvited, I simply inform It to ... Bugger off!

sorry I missed the skating on thin ice thing... that sounds like fun.

Current Talk '03 II / Re:There's a KITCHEN in that house!!!!
« on: August 07, 2003, 04:59:05 PM »
If memory serves, during the original Laura Collins storyline (1967), there's a scene in that set where everyone is having dinner around the table.

Talking about something to blow your mind!  Dinner at Collinwood!

It's weird during 1840 when Julia and Gabriel are seen having breakfast in the drawing room.
