**** New DS-inspired music video starring Kathryn Leigh Scott in the role of Elizabeth Collins Stoddard.
**** HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS and NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS on TCM

Hello, Dark Shadows Fan,

**** DAN CURTIS: OLD SCHOOL/NEW SCHOOL: Special Tribute & Video Highlight Retrospective Honoring the DS Creator & Producer-Director of Classic TV & Film Horror/Gothic Romance
Thursday. Oct. 25, 2018 from 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The Paley Center for Media, 25 W 52nd St., New York, NY 10019
Host by Paley curator David Bushman
Including discussion with Dan Curtis Productions' Jim Pierson
Admission: $12 advance / $15 door

Description: In the early 1970s, just before Hollywood auteurs like Wes Craven and John Carpenter invented the modern horror film . . . producer/director Dan Curtis dominated television horror with a series of programs reinterpreting traditional genre tropes . . . Curtis had earlier built his reputation as a purveyor of a different kind of horror – first with the Gothic-turned-supernatural daytime soap Dark Shadows (1966 to 1971) and then with a series of TV movies and specials airing between 1968 and 1975, including The Night Stalker, The Night Strangler, Trilogy of Terror, and adaptations of such classic monster tales as Dracula, Frankenstein, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Turn of the Screw, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Knowingly or not, Curtis . . . tapped into the zeitgeist of the time – the turbulent sixties, the paranoid seventies – by imbuing classical, literal monsters with human dimensions, beginning with Dark Shadows, whose conflicted, Hamlet-esque vampire, Barnabas Collins, spoke to the outlaw culture of the late sixties. . . With The Night Stalker (1972), scripted by horror legend Richard Matheson (I Am Legend, The Twilight Zone), Curtis once again turned to the classic creature of the night, in this case a vampire terrorizing young women on the streets of Las Vegas, but, in the age of Watergate, stirred in a political cover-up, foreshadowing a rash of literary and cinematic paranoid thrillers. . .
Join us as we explore these and other titles in Curtis’s horror oeuvre, exploring his thematic and aesthetic preoccupations, his evocation of the times, his own influences, and his influence on the men and women who have followed in his footsteps. . .

A preview of the upcoming documentary release Master of Dark Shadows will also be featured.

**** NEW DS-INSPIRED MUSIC VIDEO STARRING KATHRYN LEIGH SCOTT

From the blog post: Pop singer-songwriter Kyle Motsinger pays homage to Dark Shadows with his new single, aptly called “Dark Shadows.” . . . The accompanying visual, premiering today, is a masterfully-crafted piece of throwback cinema, opening up on a late-night rendezvous to a decrepit mausoleum. Motsinger, who plays the fair-skinned, long-haired protagonist, finds himself at the loving mercy of a vampire named Barnabas Collins, a direct reference to the show, Dark Shadows.

Motsinger’s own fascination with the show and its motifs informs his artistic choices and perceptive direction. With “Dark Shadows,” the New Yorker stages his own gruesome but spellbinding fantasy. “I found my way into the song by imagining myself falling in love with vampire Barnabas in that gothic house of Collinwood,” he says of the dark-club song, which he co-wrote with producer Lorant Duzgun. . . . . Motsinger met Scott in what can best be described as “a moment of serendipity that I’ve never experienced before,” he says. “I sent her the song later and invited her to star in the music video as the character of Elizabeth, the family matriarch originally played by silver screen legend Joan Bennett.” Scott graciously accepted the invitation, and in the video, she dons a dazzling gown given to her by Bennett some years ago.

**** HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS and NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS on TCM

“House of Dark Shadows” and “Night of Dark Shadows” will be seen on Turner Classic Movies early Sunday morning on October 28 at 1:30 am and 3:30 am. NOTE: They are listed on the TCM schedule for October 27, and that schedule runs after midnight. Their schedule for the 28th starts at 6:00 a.m.

**** DISCOVERY OF THE LONG-LOST LYNDHURST GARDEN FILM:

This research has uncovered early images of the property dating to the 1870s as well as documentation from around the turn of the 20th century. . . . Staff found very little such documentation of the grounds dating from between the beginning of the 20th century and the early 1960s, when the National Trust acquired Lyndhurst. Until, that is, an unassuming reel of 16mm film surfaced in the Lyndhurst archives—and opened a new world of living color. The reel, which was found sitting at the back of a closet, was labeled “Lyndhurst Gardens, 1972,” but on it were 33 minutes of edited color footage from 1942. (Staff were able to establish the date based on a license plate that appears in the film.) The film captures various locations around the garden landscape in long, panning shots. The discovery of this film is significant because it offers, for the first time, a tangible look at the landscape during the period when Lyndhurst was owned by Anna Gould.

DECADES Publicity: “Initially airing on ABC-TV from 1966-71, the soap opera found its own unique place in TV immortality and had fans running home from school to catch each episode. With its alluring tales of gothic mystery and supernatural intrigue, ‘Dark Shadows’ earned the reputation of being one of the most unusual and enduring programs in broadcasting history. Now, viewers can relive the thrills and chills every weeknight on DECADES.
 
“The creation of legendary producer Dan Curtis, ‘Dark Shadows’ tells the tragic tale of the Collins family, a seemingly well-to-do patriarchal dynasty that ran a dark New England town from their family estate, appropriately called Collinwood.
 
“Into this world enters a young nanny, Victoria (Alexandra Moltke), who soon learns there is a lot more to the Collins family than initially meets the eye. Mysterious relative Barnabas (Jonathan Frid) moves into the dilapidated estate next door, and soon the household is beset with classic monsters, including werewolves, witches and ghosts.
 
“Mixing high camp and gothic horror into the well-tread soap formula, ‘Dark Shadows’ quickly gathered a fanatical audience so large that TV GUIDE called the series ‘One of the 25 greatest cult shows of all time.’ (5/26/2014).

**** DAVID SELBY PRESENTS LINCOLN SPEECH IN WASHINGTON DC, THIS MONDAY, AUG. 27

DAVID (Quentin) will present Abraham Lincoln’s 2nd Inaugural Address Mon., Aug. 27, as part of the Presidential Sites Summit.

Publicity: “The White House Historical Association, a private non-profit educational organization founded by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in 1961, will host the Presidential Sites Summit at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington, DC on August 27-30, 2018. The summit, which is held every 2 years, brings together leaders from presidential libraries, historic homes, and museums to share ideas and insights about their management and outreach.

“The summit's opening ceremony, ‘A Monumental Celebration,’ will take place at the Lincoln Memorial on Mon., Aug. 27, from 7:00 -8:00 pm. David Selby will appear on behalf of Ford's Theatre to deliver Abraham Lincoln's second inaugural address. ‘A Monumental Celebration’ is a free event and is open to the public.”

Since a young age, David has explored Abraham Lincoln’s life and legacy, participating in a range of special events, panel discussions, historical reviews, performances, and more. He’s portrayed Lincoln in numerous stage and TV projects over the past five decades. David wrote and starred in his own intriguing play and subsequent novel about the President and a modern-day longtime Park Service worker at the Lincoln Memorial. On 2-11-2009, for the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth, he portrayed the President in the play “The Heavens Are Hung in Black” at Ford’s Theatre in Washington DC, attended by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. He presented speech excerpts and more at Ford’s Theater 4-14/15, 2015, the national commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s assassination.

DAVID guested as “Josef Desjardins” 8-1-18 on Hulu’s new fantasy/mystery/horror series CASTLE ROCK in “The Box,” (Episode 4 Season 1). The acclaimed series is set in Stephen King’s eerily complex Maine town and incorporates many of the literary elements found in his varied novels and short stories.

Hulu description: CASTLE ROCK: “A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body. Numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. This is an original suspense/thriller – a first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.”

Dietland (series written by Marti Noxon, based on Sarai Walker's novel) isn't for everybody, but if you're intrigued by female-centric issues of dating, power, misogyny, self-love, all that's wrong with the beauty industry, rape, and extreme radicalism, then you should check it out at AMC On Demand.  Currently, #1 through the penultimate episode are available, with #10 airing next week.  And the bonus for DS fans is that Kelly Hu plays a fascinating minor character-- a brainy "trophy wife"-- that I hope we get to see more of should the series be renewed.

Unfortunately, another minor recurring character is played by Marc Blucas, lol.
