NORLISS is a fun movie. I would have much rather seen a Norliss series than the Kolchak one, in terms of the respective characters, but I am quite sure I'm in the minority there.

I heard a rumor somewhere last year about someone wanting to write more Norliss stories, maybe for an audiobook or radio drama format. It's so vague in my memory that I could well have just imagined it.

I don't think this has anything to do with DS--a friend told me today that a new film of Ray Bradbury's novel FAHRENHEIT 451 is going to air on HBO:

https://www.hbo.com/movies/fahrenheit-451/cast-and-crew

I've seen several news stories in recent years about libraries throwing away their books in massive quantities due to the erroneous belief that "everything is on the cloud now." It's strange to think that a lot of what has survived other phases of destruction in human history might be wiped out through sheer negligence in the internet age.

And again--if I cared to do so, I'd use that scene to argue that the comic books take place in their own alternate world (or Parallel Time) version of 1991 Collinwood--no defined connection to the Collinwood of 1991 canon. Occasional overlaps, but equally startling differences. Because, how did the line go--"the people of this time have made different choices." (I must be slipping because that's a very bad paraphrase.)

I clicked as I had no idea who Margot Robbie is. "Margot who?" I don't see very many post 1980 films.

I disagree that Michelle was "camping it up" in the Burton/Depp Shadows, and I doubt whether the author of this article actually saw the movie, in any event. Michelle was the only actor in the movie who seemed to be attempting to play her role in a somewhat realistic manner. (To be fair, I thought Bella Heathcote was also good in her screentime, but her role seemed to have been considerably cut down.)

I personally think comparisons of this sort are pointless. Even the person who wrote it admits that the two actors have very different styles or approaches to what they do.

Thanks for the link, though. Now I at least have a vague idea about Margot Robbie so perhaps I won't do a doubletake the next time somebody expects me to be familiar with her.

cheers, G.

1991 Julia had a failed marriage? I presume this was mentioned in that book that KLS published.

G.

Wow, they're STILL doing apocalyptic narratives centered on a child who "could be the one hope for the future of the country/the world/the cosmos."

And the lure of the show revolves around the lead actor's five o'clock shadow? Quaint.

That was your snark for the day.

cheers, G.

With regards to today's snippet, did Mrs J actually address Barn as "Barnabas" on this series? In the original show, she'd have called him Mr. Collins.

From what I have seen to date, this confection's relationship to the "continuity" of the 1991 series seems tenuous, at best. And as previously stated, I'm not all that familiar with the canon of the 1991 show, so if I have noticed so many discrepancies that thinking of this as somehow taking place in the same universe as 1991 canon seems fanciful at best--I can just imagine how an actual fan of that series would have reacted, at this point.

Here's a clip with Dennis and Sharon from EDGE.

He really was a beauty.

I am glad you enjoyed the article. I have only read a bit of it. For anyone who cares (I doubt anyone other than you or I will look at it, but who knows), if you continue scrolling through the very long article, there are some Not Safe for the Workplace photos, mostly featuring naked Dennis Parker, who was a gorgeous man, but there's at least a little female nudity as well, I think.

I'm afraid I don't know anything about Sharon Gabet or the other actors you mentioned. The only soap operas I ever watched were DARK SHADOWS and STRANGE PARADISE. I'm on episode 165 of SP now, and have really been enjoying finally watching the last storyline which lasted the final 13 weeks of the show. I had seen most of it back in the 1990s thanks to a friend's kindness, but watched tapes out of order and in a rather spotty, undisciplined way.

Best, G.

Here's an interesting article about Dennis Parker:

Kim Hunter is always a delight. I enjoyed seeing her in this.

That is fascinating, Uncle Roger.

Years ago, I loaned the DVD of DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS to a dear friend who is a few years older than myself. When he gave it back to me, he offered his opinion that Karlen could have done gay porn in the Seventies.

G.

627
Uncle Roger, was Kim Hunter the "washed up actress" being interrogated by the police captain, who did indeed look a lot like a gay pornstar of the Seventies?

I don't think most fans care about this kind of thing any longer. Perhaps it was always a minority pursuit. I still get really excited whenever I find more scenes of Grayson on One Life to Live, and it was such a treat to see Humbert show up in another EDGE OF NIGHT episode.

A fan on social media found this episode, which has a scene in which Joel and Donna Wandrey (who obviously did not overlap on DS) have an encounter. Date is 1980.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6f1eGii3dU

The same fan posted snapshots from Donna's recent appearance on LAW & ORDER: SVU, on May 2. I think it is a current TV show.

Donna looked great!

I presume you're alluding in your usual sly, artful way to the presence of Bella Heathcote in this project. I just learned of its existence this evening and played one of the trailers. I don't know Bella's work well enough to have spotted her.

Jack Parsons made some very important contributions to the revival of occult, Pagan practice in the US, and his writing has been influential worldwide in this 21st century. And of course, he was a very significant pioneer in the history of rocket engineering and what eventually became NASA. I doubt the movie will be anything more than florid, sensationalist schlock. But maybe it will also be a bit of fun. I doubt I'll be seeing it, but perhaps if there is a DVD release and IF the local library acquires it...
