The receptive audience included Jerry, Lara Parker, David & Chip Selby, Jim Pierson (Dan Curtis Productions, DS Festival), Marcy Robin (ShadowGram, DS Festival), and Kathy Resch (ShadowGram, DS Festival).

**** 1991 DS TV SERIES ON DVD – REISSUE IN FULL-SCREEN FORMAT
 
Dan Curtis Productions: “This past summer, the complete 12 episodes of the 1991 DS primetime NBC series starring Ben Cross were reissued on DVD by TGG Direct, which has licensed the program from MGM.
 
“Unlike previous DVD releases of DS '91, this TGG version for the first time offers the episodes in their original broadcast ratio of 4:3, as they aired on NBC and, later, the Sci-Fi Channel, in reruns. Previous DVDs of the series were formatted only in a widescreen aspect ratio that cropped the top and bottom of the screen. DS creator Dan Curtis actually directed the pilot movie and initial episodes with an eye towards framing what he shot in wide screen and he therefore did not object to the widescreen DVDs. However, subsequent episode directors did not follow the same visual template, so it is nice for fans and purists to have the entire DS '91 series in the full screen format as it was broadcast.”
 
--- PLEASE NOTE: “This is a standard definition DVD release. The episodes are not available on BluRay high definition. Additionally, the TGG set utilizes the same transfers from the earlier DVD sets. That means the scenes shot ‘day for night’ in the pilot are not properly ‘color timed,’ so it appears Barnabas is lurking in partial daylight.
 
“Even more disappointing is the fact that the deleted scenes and other bonus material issued on VHS tape by MPI are not included and have yet to find their way to DVD. Hopefully at some point a Blu Ray set might offer those elusive extras.
 
The TGG set has a $49.98 list price and can be purchased at Amazon.com and other online and retail outlets.

The NBC primetime revival DS originally was a midseason replacement series that ran 1-13/3-22-1991.

---- CHRIS PENNOCK IN NEW ONLINE FILM TRIBUTE TO EDGAR ALLEN POE
 
Chris (Jeb, Cyrus/John, Sebastian, Gabriel) portrays “Death” in the 12+-minute short “A POEM OF POE,” a “Halloween Tribute to the writings of Edgar Allen Poe.”
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5O2GQDV3IYI
 
Written and directed by Ansel Faraj and “adapted liberally from Poe’s writings,” the “play within a play” mostly interprets the poem “Annabel Lee.” which some consider to be based on a lost love in Poe’s own life. In the film, Poe himself, taunted by grim Death, seems to actually become and experience the “tragedy called Man” tale.

**** “MENTAL FLOSS” WEBSITE FEATURES “14 DS FACTS WITH BITE”
 
Based in the inquisitive and perceptive “Mental Floss” magazine, its online website 10-15-15 features “14 ‘Dark Shadows’ Facts With Bite.” The article is a look at “Popular Culture, Television, Vampires, Witchcraft.”
 
The article’s tone varies: factual, blunt, curious/puzzled, somewhat condescending, impressed with what DS did and represented for its time and technology, etc.  It describes DS as “a charmingly under-budgeted Gothic melodrama about a spooky seaside town in Maine that blended the supernatural (werewolves, witchcraft, and zombies) with parallel universes and time travel.”

**** JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT STARS AS REAL-LIFE AERIALIST IN NEW FILM “THE WALK” – OUT SEPT.  30
 
JOE (1991 DS David, Daniel) portrays the renowned French high-wire artiste Philippe Petit in THE WALK, screening in IMAX and regular theaters beginning 9-30.
 
The film chronicles Petit’s solo 45-minute walk along a cable strung between the tops of the 110-story Twin Towers of Manhattan’s World Trade Center on Aug. 7, 1974. With no net, harness, or other safety gear, Petit carried only a 60-pound balancing pole as he covered the ¼ mile between the then-recently opened landmark towers.   
 
The movie embraces 3D and special effects technology but is based in Petit’s life and his determined drive to accomplish the feat. Joe met and trained with Petit at his home in upstate NY. The actual walk scenes were shot in-studio with Joe on a real cable 12 feet off the floor. Camera angles and post-production realistically re-create the sensations, experience, and immense distance of being alone on a narrow cable 1350 feet above the streets of New York City.
 
THE WALK official trailer can be viewed at  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3488710/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
 
SG asks fans to please hare any media coverage of THE WALK and Joe’s role: on-air, print and internet articles, interviews, reviews, related stories, etc.
 
Please include your full name and identify the source and date. Send all materials to SG’s e- or postal- mail addresses below. Thank you.
 
 
**** * UPDATE: NOTE FROM SG EDITOR,  MARCY ROBIN
 
SG Online Update #365 (8-25-15) explained that I’d have surgery the next day for a hole in the retina of my left eye, a recurring consequence of lifelong severe myopia (near-sightedness). The gas-fluid exchange us done entirely inside the eye under local anesthesia and requires a long, gradual healing process which restricts daily activities and more. I’m still recovering, adjusting, and coping. I can see somewhat with the eye, though it’s hard to read, type, etc. My vision should continue to improve in the coming weeks. My next check-up with my excellent surgeon is in mid-October.
 
When “all is well” with my eye and I’m settled into my life again, I’ll prepare the next print newsletter – SG #127 – for publication and have it ready to mail to all current subscribers as soon as I can
 
My deepest thanks for all the encouraging good wishes, thoughts, cards, notes, and messages from so many. Your kindness is very appreciated. I especially thank Kathy Resch for her wonderful help working with me on my correspondence for the SG published newsletters, the SG Yahoo Group, and more.
 
Time-sensitive SG Online Updates like this one are posted first through the SG Group, then in other social media, as I receive confirmed DS-related news. These Updates always will premiere-announce official news for our upcoming DS Festival DS 50th Anniversary Celebration in Tarrytown, NY, June 24-26, 2016.
 
News related to DS, its personnel, the Fests, merchandise, and other references occur at any time. SG welcomes everything you share for the email SG Updates and print newsletters.

I'm asking for your help.

A fundraiser was set up for Taeylor Collins via crowdfunding by his dear friend-- another Forum cousin.  I'll let Anna explain his situation for you:

Support for Taeylor

I recently heard from Taeylor, and his discomfort and despair came through in his voice.  It was heartbreaking.

Life's challenges could become overwhelming for any one of us.  I'm sure that, like me, you've witnessed many instances in which members of the DS community turned to each other for support, whether it be emotional, financial, or spiritual.  Our Taeylor is more than halfway to his goal, but more is needed.  If you're able, would you be willing to contribute?  Any amount would help.

Thanks for listening.
