Rebecca Staab was recently added to the guest list for the Hollywood Show on April 23-25 at the Burbank Marriott.

That's in addition to her scheduled appearance at the Florida SuperCon in Miami on June 18-20:  http://www.supercon.tv/media-guests/163-rebecca-staab

So, a '91 DS alum is willing to participate in autograph shows on both coasts, including this year's Fest location... And Adrian Paul was at last year's Comic-Con... Are you listening, Jim Pierson?!

With thanks to Kosmo!

Hello, Dark Shadows Fan,

***** SG PREMIERE ANNOUNCEMENT:

----- UPDATING: DS FESTIVAL'S "SHADOWS IN THE SUN"

SG here announces our updated guest list, programming details, special events, and membership / Banquet prices.

The new SG newsletter print issue a HUGE Double SG #117-#118 will be sent to all current postal-mail subscribers very soon. I will announce its publication and highlight its contents in a SG Online News Update posted to the SG YahooGroup.

******* PLEASE NOTE:
This is a SG advance announcement intended for the fans' interest and information only. SG does not handle any Fest payments or the Fest's annual general mass postal-mailing. Those are done entirely through the Fest from its New Jersey P.O. Box address.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY FEST PAYMENTS TO THE FEST POSTAL-MAIL ADDRESS BEFORE APRIL 20

The mass mailing should be en route by that date. It will have the actual Payment Form you must include when you pay for your Fest membership. After the mailing is sent out, you also can print the membership form off the Fest website.

Following is the latest confirmed Fest news, which is fully detailed in the upcoming SG #117-#118 print issue, along with more premiere announcements, exclusive photos, extensive news developments, and much more. (To receive the published print issues, see SG subscription information later in this Update.)

DS FRIDAY MOVIE MATINEE WITH JONATHAN FRID

At 12:30pm on 7-16, Jonathan will be honored with a handprints-in-cement ceremony at the historic Vista Theatre in LA/Hollywood (a short distance from the hotel). Following the ceremony, the 1970 MGM motion picture HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS, starring Jonathan, will be shown on the big screen inside the theatre from a pristine 35 mm print.

The beautifully-restored Egyptian-style Vista is more than 75 years old and located not far from the hotel, at the intersection of Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards, 3 blocks east of Vermont Ave., in Los Feliz (Los Angeles).

The $10 admission for the ceremony/screening includes popcorn and a soft drink. Tickets are limited. For an additional $15, round-trip bus transportation will be provided to and from the Marriott Hotel to the Vista. The movie will finish at approximately 3pm, allowing attendees time to return to the Marriott before the Fest opens at 6pm.

Fans who want bus transportation must send their reservation/payment by postal-mail to the Fest address below before July 10.

Fans who do not need transportation can purchase tickets for $10 each directly from the Vista box office during afternoon/evening operating hours (after 4pm weekdays or after 2pm weekends)

On 7-18 at 7pm, join the guests for a 3-course dinner in the hotel Ballroom, followed by door prizes and after-dinner entertainment. Each banquet attendee will receive a commemorative Barnabas Collins photo (from the original negative) with a personalized autograph by Jonathan. The banquet price (includes signed picture) is only $50 per person and is non-refundable. Advance reservations are required and must be received by July 10. Send payment to the Fest address below.

Please Note: Jonathan appears at the Fest only on Sat., 7-17 and Sun., 7-18. His autograph will be available only to those attending the banquet.

Calendar Events / Announcements '10 I / Burton talks about Steele
« on: March 21, 2010, 09:42:14 PM »
From Parade magazine--

Tim Burton "shares his favorite monsters, madmen, and villains in the movies," and had this to say about Barbara Steele:

[Her] breakout performance as Katia Vajda/Princess Asa Vajda in Mario Brava's Black Sunday (1960) is a testament to her unsual, haunting beauty. There's no mistaking why Steele went on to become the Queen of Italian Horror.

See Tim Burton gets into character for the full article.

How I wish he could find a part for her in the DS movie.  Wouldn't she have been a terrific Maleva in The Wolfman?
