Nathan: Mr. Collins, I appreciate the offer of 10 hogsheads of rum, 40 head of cattle and my own windjammer, but I must refuse your offer to wed Ben instead of Millicent, comley fellow that he is.
Joshua: And if I add some fair sheep?

I got the follwing reply from Majesctic Toys a few days ago...
To: Michael
Dear Dark Shadows fan,
I'm sending this letter to let you know what is happening with Majestic Studios release of the Dark Shadows 12-inch collectible figures.  The release has been postponed until the end of January/ beginning of February.  They are being manufactured right now and will be shipping from Hong Kong by boat on January 15, 2006.
Majestic has been in talks with a much larger company about a possible partnership or even merger.  Once we began talks, we held up all production.  These negotiations look like they will take months to complete, so we have decided to go into production to get just the Dark Shadows and Abominable Dr. Phibes figures out.  We do not want to hold these particular figures up any longer since people have been expecting them for a while.
If you have pre-ordered either the Barnabas Collins current day version, Barnabas Collins 1795 era version, Quentin Collins or Dr. Phibes, they will be shipped to you at the beginning of February.  All credit cards will be charged at that time.  On the other hand, if you need to cancel your order, you can contact me at (removed).  I will handle it immediately.
We are sorry for the delay.  And, we believe you will be very pleased with the completed figures and packaging for Dark Shadows and Dr. Phibes.
Thank you for your patience,
Robert Langer
US Director of Operations
Majestic Studios
  So, cool enough, I can wait 'til February...

Willie : I swear to ya Barnabas, I don't know who no Countess Bathory is. I would't betray you.
Barnabas: Then who is "Mother"?

I was beginning to think I was the only Roger fan in the world.  I am glad to know I'm not!

The publication of the book, "Alias Smith & Jones: The Story of Two Pretty Good Bad Men", has turned the tide a little more in Roger's favor.  People are beginning to realize he wasn't to blame for replacing Pete.  If the series had been canceled it would not have reached the magic 50 episodes needed for syndication.  The show would have been lost to us.

Hello again Amanda,
  Roger is one of the more unique, colorful and controversial of the DS regulars. I would have to agree with Rainey that he is too rough with the actresses. In person, Roger has a very sharp and wry sense of humor. I rather like his humor and relate to the fact that it can be misunderstood. As we are also both born southerners (he from Kentucky, I from Virginia), I relate to that too. Roger stopped me to compliment me the first time I did a skit on the costume ball, and at various times at the conventions he and I have chatted in the halls and corridors. I always find him warm and approachable. Now be aware Roger won't always be in the autograph table at the usual times. Sometimes, to get him to sign something, you may have to catch him walking around.  I've seen him start a line just for himself while others are on stage. I think the main time when Roger can get out of line in my opinion is when he's on the panels with others. Rogers feasts on attention and will answer a question often intended for someone else by interjecting himself, often on an aspect of DS he wasn't even around on, such as say Jonathan Frid's casting. While I'm sure like many of us,Roger has picked up lots of DS lore and history of the periods he wasn't directly involved in, but it would be polite at least to let someone the question was asked to, say a KLS or Nancy Barrett on say, the black and white era answer the question, rather than Roger interjecting, "Well, ah, from what I have heard..."
    There are certain interpersonal events that involve Roger that are best left to not being addressed on the boards in my opinion.
     So, personally, I rather like Roger, but I understand he's not everyone's shot of tea. I understand he rubs some people the wrong way, but can be truly charming. Actually, I'm glad someone else is here who enjoys him.


The first season of The Rockford Files (1974) will be released December 6, and in it are:

[li]"The Kirkoff Case" featuring both Roger Davis (who holds Rockford captive and steals his pants) [/li][/list]

Check it out.  :)
Roger often remarked, "Men are changing, and sometimes if a man wants to steal another man's pants, I think he should be able to do so. Sometimes I like to wear fuzzy chaps like Tom Mix. Sometimes I like to spray on White Rain hairspray. But whatever I do, I splash on Brut aftershave first..."

This will sound odd, but was the name of this topic always "When R. D. rode the....??
Yes Patti, the original post started with a link to an article on "Alias Smith and Jones", which is when Roger "rode the west"  playing an outlaw cowboy. (on that there TV) I think many of us have a fondness as it was the end of the great TV western era, when "Gunsmoke", "Rawhide", "Sugarfoot" and "Lawman" et al. dominated the networks. (Not that I liked or watched all of them, I always thought "Big Valley" especially was tedious) I found the article on TV Party, which by the way also has a great (and extensive) article right now on the  history of the making of Rankin-Bass's "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer".
