Clarice Blackburn in "The Queen and the Rebels," 1965 theater notice

Before joining the cast of Dark Shadows, actress Clarice Blackburn had an extensive resume of theater credits. Blackburn, who was given the thankless job of playing the Collinwood housekeeper (among other characters) won an Obie award the year Dark Shadows launched. Also recognized that year were Dustin Hoffman, Frank Langella and Sam Shepard, so she was in pretty good company.

Above is a notice from the Feb. 18, 1965, edition of The Village Voice about the play The Queen and the Rebels, one of two plays she appeared in that year.
