Kathryn Leigh Scott, Lara Parker, Alexandra Moltke Isles. Dark Shadows was the show every kid ran home from school to watch. This book incorporates many of the fascinating facts, anecdotes, and trivia about the series that delighted fans in My Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows, and delivers all-new text and photos.

Alexandra Isles (then Alexandra Moltke), a young actress . Dark Shadows had a rocky beginning.

Alexandra Isles (then Alexandra Moltke), a young actress with little experience, was discovered and cast in the role of Victoria Winters, an orphan who journeys to the mysterious, fictional town of Collinsport, Maine, to unravel the mysteries of her past. Veteran film star Joan Bennett was soon cast as Victoria's employer Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, a woman who had not left her home in over eighteen years. Critics were quick to deem the series rather boring for its heavy use of unknown actress Isles and the slow pace.

By Kathryn Leigh Scott. I certainly didn’t plan to do another book about the series. I knew when I published My Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows that I had written all I would ever have to say about the show

By Kathryn Leigh Scott. I’m doin’ it. Well, I’m doing another book, Dan cheez. He grinned and shook his head. I knew when I published My Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows that I had written all I would ever have to say about the show. It was finished, I was glad and I put it behind me. But then I came across the text Melody, Marcy and Kathy-longtime fans of Dark Shadows-had written and I was very impressed with it.

DARK SHADOWS MEMORIES is a colorful, picture-packed tribute to the legendary 1966 - 1971 Gothic ABC-TV daytime series Dark Shadows, that starred Jonathan Frid as tormented vampire Barnabas Collins.

DARK SHADOWS MEMORIES is a colorful, picture-packed tribute to the legendary 1966 - 1971 Gothic ABC-TV daytime series Dark Shadows, that starred Jonathan Frid as tormented vampire Barnabas Collins. Launched June 27, 1966 by series creator Dan Curtis as a Gothic romance evoking the gloomy, storm-tossed milieu of the Brontë sisters, and later evolving into a supernatural blend of vampires, witches, leviathans, time travel and parallel universes, Dark Shadows was radically unlike any daytime soap.

The author, as you all know, played four different characters on the Dark Shadows series, the two main ones being Maggie Evans and Josette DuPres.

She acquire the name "Scott" from a manager who glanced at a box of Scott Tissues, and gave Kringstad that name on the spot.
Fast forward to now, we have in this book her autobiography, which originally appeared in "My Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows," updated and revised. This is one of five main chapters, the others being a summary of the entire TV series (by Kathleen Resch), a summary of the two movies made during that era, "House of Dark Shadows" and "Night of Dark Shadows" and, what I found really interesting, Scott's conversation with David Henesy.
The updated and revised version of Scott's original book is in here, being the first chapter now titled "My Memories of Dark Shadows," in which originally, Ms. Scott stored all her scripts, souvenirs, and photos of her career in a box and kept it in the attic of her parent's house in Minnesota for 25 years before digging it out and then writing of her life up to and beyond cancellation of the show. It is interesting to see what went on behind the scenes, how the actors all got along (great), what they were like in real life (i.e. Kathryn Leigh Scott and Lara Parker, who played Josette and Angelique, rivals on the show, were really best friends during that time), and some little known facts. For example, Jonathan Frid, who played Barnabas, once swore during a filming, which had to be completely redone. Ms. Scott started out as a Playboy bunny before acting, and even looked for other acting jobs during the show. One major change while Ms. Scott acted was no matter where she went, New York City or on an African safari, someone would always recognize her. There were times when she was swamped for autographs, which she always cheerfully gave, and another where one person was shocked seeing her dine with Lara Parker. Anyway, this does tell of her life, on and off the show, and what she did after leaving, going to Paris to marry her boyfriend, a photographer for Time magazine.
That is not all. Another chapter summarizes the entire series, from beginning to end. The two movies are also summarized. There are photographs of the scenes, the rehearsals, the studio, meetings, getting out of their cars or limos and entering the studio amongst adoring fans, and a few covering their private lives.
One chapter I really found interesting was her reunion with David Henesy, who played the impish David Collins and three other characters. I must confess, I have had a fascination for him because he was a child actor, my age, and I wondered how he lived. He was in the acting business throughout his childhood, up until the time he left the series in 1970. His coworkers did find him being and acting professional, and did some cooking, and selling meals on the side. After he left the series, he went into business, owning restaurants and even nightclubs. His former coworkers would pay him a visit. Louis Edmonds would visit a restaurant and brag that he is Henesy's father, which David did not deny. Kathryn and David did get to meet at one club many years later, and then reconnected with each other via chatroom while Henesy lived in South America, and here, Scott gives a good and detailed interview about his life and his stint on the show, how he really felt, and what he thought of the characters he played. Don't forget, Henesy and the rest of the cast lived in New York, a far cry from Collinsport, Maine.
The rest of the book devotes itself to, after cancellation, how the series went into syndication worldwide, how the conventions were formed and the actors participating in lectures at these conventions, the merchandizing, the works, even explaining why the remade NBC series, shown in 1991, failed. (Gulf War coverage taking the time slot among other reasons).
This is an informative book on the series, complete with photos and the story of the show, with comments from some of the actors. This is the 35 anniversary edition, being printed in 2005, so information on the latest movie isn't in this, but I'm sure it will be in a future updated version, which is inevitable.

Reading these memoirs of the series Dark Shadows took me back to being a kid and running all the way haome as a child to see Dark Shadows evcery day. Then we moved 3 blocks from school and everyone I knew went to my house to watch it. My mom was wonderful letting 12 or more school girls take over the frontroom for the hour Dark Shadows was on. I enjjoyed this book immensely.

Excellent transaction. Excellent condition. Perfect all around. A great item at a fantastic price. Words cannot describe my experience on Amazon as of late. The item bought was in excellent condition and served its purpose well. Nothing can compare and have nothing ill to say of it, nor do I have anything else to mention that needs concern. Highly recommend for anyone who shops on the internet! Amazon is always the best!

I found the book enjoyable, especially the David Hennessy interview. He was candid, humorous and insightful into the people he worked with as a child. It would be nice for him to write a book expanding more on his memories + what it was like to be a child actor in NYC in the 60s-70s. It would also be a fun movie idea if you ask me. . .from his perspective, working on this crazy show with actors who 'lived' the life. Observing all the craziness of the fans, the hysteria. . .
I would like to see a future DS book catalogue more of the crazy stories we've heard over the years. This one was a rehash of earlier Memories books and the attempts to explain the DS storylines (convoluted as it was).

This book is a lot of fun to read. It puts the reader back into those days of youth (mine anyway) when this show was so much fun to watch. Great pictures also. It's filled with memories of the cast and how special they were to each other, which showed in how well they worked together. Dark Shadows fans should have this in their collection.
If you are an original DS (1966-71) fan, then this book is for you!
