And Then 150 Arrows Will Go Thunk! Thunk!

from The New York Times, May 10, 1970

Another article describing Dan Curtis as a hulking wild man and describing the hectic scene on the set of House of Dark Shadows. At least this one works in some mention of his wife and family, albeit with pithy remarks, of course, and his life before and during DS. I don't know why I expected high cultured critiques of the show since it was always categorized as camp but most of these sort are dismissive of the cultism of the show more so than its wide appeal as great and innovative television. This is also, unfortunately, one of those archival reprints that clips off the last letters of sentences at the margins. Luckily, there isn't much new to be learned from it and the words fill in themselves.
