Dark Shadows jumps to the big screen (take 1)

The marketing machine for the new Dark Shadows film appears to be suffering lethargy this year. It's almost February and we have neither a poster nor a trailer for the film, but back in 1970 the first Dark Shadows film was everywhere. Rumor has it the movie saved MGM from bankruptcy that year, though the final gross for House of Dark Shadows is still a mystery.

The newspaper clipping above talks about the film's hectic shooting schedule, its impact on the Tarrytown, N.Y., community (where it was shot) and the negative impact that Gomer Pyle USMC had on Dark Shadows ratings.
