In 1968, 16 SPEC ran a photo feature on a party for the cast of DARK SHADOWS. Titled "Jonathan Frid's Mystery Guest," the hook for the feature was that Frid's guest was his mother, Flora. The bulk of these images come from that publication. The photo at the top shows the Frids with Edim Vane (ABC's vice president of daytime programming) and DARK SHADOWS producers Robert Costello and Dan Curtis, presumably taken at the same event.
