Picture pages, picture pages, having fun with picture
The following are a sample of my extensive collection
of photographs from the last few Dark Shadows Festivals.
DS FESTIVAL, 1997-99
First ever Festival picture, and you can see it would be a while before
I mastered the art of stage crawling a'la paparazzi. John Karlen, Lara
Parker, Kathryn Leigh Scott, NYC 1997.
Kathryn, Lara, and Louis Edmonds in 1997. (I was ON the stage then,
but darn! No zoom lens!)
Wallace at the 1997 banquet with a couple of boon companions in dark
and evil bustierres
Pennock, aka the Happiest Fellah, and Terrayne Crawford, the Serene,
signing away at one of the grueling 1997 autograph sessions
at the Marriot Marquis? Or a vision from my tired eyes after the 1997 banquet, somehow tranferred to film?
No, just a weird and welcome merge of the hallway, John Karlen and Roger Davis with some
unidentified fan onstage.
only decent close-up photo I got of a DS star in Las Vegas 1998---
and Denise Nickerson was SANDWICHED between two fans
keep telling people I believe Paul Michael and Marion Ross got hitched
in Vegas that weekend, and here's a picture of them in their "Sunday best"
even though it wasn't Sunday, which look suspiciously like wedding clothes
(Las Vegas style!)
Parker in 1997, managing to smile at fans in spite of exhaustion
"panoramic" view of all the DS "originals" at the 1999 Festival
Pierson, Abe Vigoda, and Abe's daughter
that a dirty halo over Jim Pierson's head? (And dig that "way past
5 PM" shadow!)
Ed Lambese with Chris Pennock, NYC, 1999
late Louis Edmonds at the NYC 1999 Festival, in the dress uniform blazer
from his Navy days 50 years ago!
skit at the 1999 Festival, featuring Lara Parker's daughter Kaitlyn,
in dark wig, as Sarah Collins, telling Big Bad Bro Barnabas to "Clean up
Leigh Scott with a display of her Pompress wares
Karlen and m'self, taken by Roger Davis--- Is this the "morning after"
or "the night before the morning after"?
A couple of kids,
their faces concealed to hide their identities, were dressed up by their mom in home-made
outfits to resemble the two incarnations of Angelique--- 1795 and 1968.
This compostion shot
was such a favorite of the young lady, owner of a huge David Selby website, that when I gave her a copy, she had David Selby
autograph it, and she had it framed.
Lara Parker at the banquet, Kathryn selling her books,
and Donna Wandrey laboriously making her "Roxanne--Wandrey" crossword autographs in 1999.
DS FESTIVAL, 2000-2002
John Karlen and myself at LA 2000; Bottom left: John with unidentified fan; Bottom
right: John embracing Lara Parker
Barrett, aka "Carolyn" and former onscreen DS flame Mitch Ryan, aka
"The REAL Burke"
late Dennis Patrick, receiving a helpful cue from Marie Wallace
far as I know, the last-ever picture of the late, great Dave Brown
at the 2000 Festival. I cut it out of a group picture, and did it over
in greyscale--- brought out the detail.
toast the memory of Jenn's Dad, Dave Brown, at the first banquet after
Sheenasma, MsCriseyde, etc. Why, oh WHY didn't I have them pose in
front of the WTC Marriott's immense indoor fountain, now forever lost?
notorious Jim Pierson blackmail picture. We look WAY too happy, don't
we? Though I KNOW we both really wanted to dance with the PLANT!
my ability to capture a priceless moment in record time
John Karlen's Banquet table, WTC Marriott, Aug. 2001
joins John for some dinnertime play
Marie Wallace, Chris and Lynn Pennock, and Kathryn
in my devilish duds--- And giving camera instructions while Kathryn
smiles bravely on!
best shot of the life-sized 1969 painting of the late Louis Edmonds
as "The Commodore." Can you make out the blue in his eyes?
and Kathryn's smashing performance at the 2002 festival
exciting conclusion to the play
I spent my 45th birthday this year! Screaming all the way, with EYES
what MORE do we REALLY need?
banquet 2002 vignette
Bob's Leg" takes on a whole new meaning
of the best Festival skit, posed in front of a wedding arrangement
set up for one of two couples who got hitched the same night
Rodan and David Selby demonstrate the downside of being very tall and lanky
it's HARD to sit on those little seats when you're that tall. Not that
David's fans minded his squirming, all that much!
very small cast reunion,cluding David Henesy's Mom Jeane Avery
Davis, Marie, Chris Pennock
late, great Dennis Patrick, reminiscing about the weird, wacky days
when he appeared in the film "JOE"
with the ever-hunky Bobubas and Mr. Eight-and-One-Half (I think he
named himself after the movie)
and the ever-present Commander Supreme of Festival security, looking
like we're ready to paint the town red (but after a long weary weekend,
more likely to collapse and sleep like the dead!
