If I get asked one question by readers, it's "When is DARK SHADOWS coming back to television?"
If I get asked two questions, though, the other is "Whatever happened to the original portrait of Barnabas Collins?" Well, here's your answer: According to www.invaluable.com, the original is considered "lost" ... but you can own this recreation by William Stout for the low, low price of OH MY GOD. Here's the auction summary:
$10,000 - $15,000.Whether you know it or not, you've seen Stout's work before. His art has graced the posters for MONTY PYTHON'S LIFE OF BRIAN, Ralph Bakshi's WIZARDS, MORE AMERICAN GRAFFITI and more. The live auction for the Barnabas Collins portrait is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. PST on June 30. Now excuse me while I visit to bank to take out another mortgage. Take a gander for yourself HERE.
