Update Number 386

September 20, 2016

 

********************************************

 

Hello, Dark Shadows Fan,

 

ShadowGram (SG), The Official Newsletter & News Source for Dark Shadows (DS), provides the following news in this ShadowGram Official Dark Shadows News Online Update "Bulletin."

 

As premiere-announced and reported in recent SHADOWGRAM OFFICIAL DS NEWS ONLINE UPDATES, the DS Festival is presenting another very special celebration:

 

The DS 50th Anniversary Encore  – “Halloween in Hollywood” – is Sat., Oct. 29, from 12:00 noon to 12:00 midnight. All festivities will be at the historic Hollywood Women’s Club, located at 1749 La Brea Ave., Hollywood, California 90046 - in the heart of the world-renowned entertainment center of Hollywood.

 

Within walking distance are many famous, iconic entertainment, historic, scenic, and tourist attractions. Sandwiches, beverages, and snacks will be for sale on site and there are numerous restaurants nearby.

 

((More information is in ShadowGram Online Updates #384 and #385, available at the free ShadowGram Group List at Yahoo.com))

 

**** We proudly will highlight 3 very special occasions, especially these:

 

--- DS Music Composer/Arranger ROBERT “BOB” COBERT’s 92nd Birthday.

--- DS Scenic Designer SY TOMASHOFF’s 94th Birthday (belated but still a reason to celebrate!).

--- Publication of LARA PARKER’s  (Angelique) 4th DS novel in advance of its early November release). The book can be purchased and personally autographed by Lara.

 

ROBERT "BOB" COBERT' will be on-hand to autograph the exclusive new purple vinyl reissue of The Original Music From Dark Shadows album, first released in 1969 and a Top 20 Billboard chart success at the time. This unique vinyl album is a limited edition only available last April via retail for Record Store Day. The album is pressed on high-quality, heavy virgin vinyl and includes all the original artwork plus the Barnabas and Quentin poster insert.

 

By special arrangement, the last 100 copies will be signed by Bob and available for purchase for the reduced price of only $20.00 each

 

Additionally, SHADOWGRAM is pleased to announce that Cobert's classic score to the

1968 Dan Curtis TV production of "The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde" will

be making its CD debut. Some of the music was later used in 1970’s major motion picture "House of Dark Shadows," and also was re-recorded for the original daytime DS

TV series. The music is noted among Cobert's most dramatic and distinctive work.

 

Another major highlight is the premiere of LARA PARKER's latest novel, “Dark Shadows - Heiress Of Collinwood” prior to its November publication. Advance copies of the book will be available for purchase. Lara will personally sign them and present a dramatic reading on stage.

 

We also will salute DS Scenic Designer SY TOMASHOFF with a belated 94th birthday toast! SY is a multiple Daytime Emmy Award winner/nominee for his outstanding work on BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL and other TV projects.

 

There will be an audience Question & Answer session with LARA and our other confirmed DS guests: JOHN KARLEN, KATHRYN LEIGH SCOTT, JAMES STORM, NANCY BARRETT, LISA RICHARDS, ROGER DAVIS, JAMES HALL. Others to be premiere-announced by ShadowGram.

 

Additional activities on Oct. 29 will be autographs and photo opportunities with the stars, guest performances and presentations, a DS memorabilia sale, a charity auction with rare, unique, and original DS collectibles, and more. Fans of all ages are encouraged to participate in the just-for-fun DS/Halloween Costume Party on Sat. evening, sharing their DS creativity and enthusiasm. Please contact Marcy Robin at ShadowGram@aol.com for more information.

There you can acknowledge the 25th Anniversary of the nighttime DS series, the only primetime TV DS version. Different rooms and views were used as Collinwood. Airing 1-13 to 3-22, 1991, its 13 hours told a condensed, more intense version of the story of Barnabas’ release from the coffin into modern-day Collinsport, with a flashback to 1791, leading to Angelique’s vampire curse. The elegant rooms and grounds also were used extensively to shoot location scenes for a 2004 pilot ordered by the WB network. This proposed TV series also revisited Barnabas’ origin story. The pilot was not picked up by the network.

**** LOCAL ATTRACTIONS OF INTEREST / TRAVEL & HOTEL INFORMATION

 

---- The Hollywood Women’s Club building is just half a block north of Hollywood Boulevard and the start of the world-renowned “Hollywood Walk of Fame” (which also continues along Vine Street). Sidewalks on both sides of the boulevard and 3 blocks on both sides of Vine St. feature separate, distinctive, embedded 5-pointed terrazzo and brass stars that honor 2900+ individuals and entities recognized across the decades.

JOAN BENNETT (DS’ Elizabeth, Naomi, Judith, Flora) is among those recognized with one of these distinguished stars.

 

---- The Women’s Club building is 2 blocks from the iconic Chinese Theatre at 6925 Hollywood Blvd. Opened in May, 1927, its famed forecourt presents embedded large concrete blocks featuring actual signatures, hand-, and foot- prints (and sometimes specific features) of entertainment industry personalities from the 1920s to now. Visitors can freely wander the forecourt, take photos, etc. The distinctive Chinese Theatre itself has long been used for major motion picture premieres and other special occasions.

***** JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT STARS IN NEW DRAMA FILM “Snowden”

 

Joe (1991 DS David, Daniel) stars in the biographical drama SNOWDEN, based on the life, decisions, and actions of former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. LA Times 9-16: The movie and its portrayal of Snowden explore “the moral and dramatic” existence and impact of government surveillance. Moving between scenes of Snowden’s “past and present, (it) builds a detailed dossier that also serves as a primer on government spycraft, an emotionally turbulent love story,” and a “moral” view of Snowden’s “decision.” Joe’s “performance is a tour de force.” The movie is from Oliver Stone (whose first film in 1973 featured DS’ JONATHAN FRID).
