Calendar Events / Announcements '10 I / Burton talks about Steele
« on: March 21, 2010, 08:42:14 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?

Current Talk '10 I / EW's List of Soaps Loved and Lost
« on: February 12, 2010, 04:59:56 PM »
From December, 2009.  Better late than never?

13 Soap Operas We've Loved, Lost

I'll forgive Entertainment Weekly for its use of the c-word since they again used the photo of Liz, Roger and Vicki instead of a stock pic of Barnabas, and for the comparison to Lost, too.

[Hmm, I didn't know "DiNozzo" (Michael Weatherly) was on Loving.]
