Barnabas visits Vicki in jail. He wants to believe she is innocent but confesses that he found no evidence of a fire in her room. Upset, Vicki swears the room was on fire, but it was a strange fire that felt like ice when she touched it. Barnabas remembers the words he heard Angelique chanting, “Heart of fire, fire in the heart of ice…” Barnabas has an epiphany. He is now convinced that Vicki is not a witch and tells her he will do everything he can to help her.

If I was in trouble and Barnabas promised to do everything he could to help, I’d be worried. He has a bad habit of making things worse…

You’re lying. I searched the sewing room when I was looking for Miss Winters. You were in your room. Those strange words I heard you say, ‘heart of fire burns in the heart of ice’. Why did you lie to me? Is it possible that…No, I can’t believe that. Not my wife! A strange girl who says she is from another time, I could believe it about her. A witch, yes. But my wife? Oh, not my wife!”

*Relax, Barnabas. You’ve been married what…? Less than 24 hours.

Barnabas gets a clue—that’s always dangerous.

(I love the faces he’s making here, though!)

Gene continually tended to ‘his’ women: regulars, guest stars, and extras. Obsessively involved with their costumes, their hairstyles, their makeup - and even their footwear - he created a look best described as ‘available sexuality.’ Their costumes were as scant as possible, designed for the maximum display of breasts and legs. Yes, actresses were chosen for their acting talent, but voluptuous lips and seductive eyes were very important to him. And in most instances, the characters they portrayed were emotionally subordinate to the men of Star Trek.

Women were, essentially, sex objects always ready for action. And they were the antithesis of the actresses starring in the other dramatic television series of that era: Barbra Bain (Mission: Impossible), Amanda Blake (Gunsmoke), Barbara Anderson (Ironsides), Stephanie Powers (The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.), and of course Barbara Stanwyck (Big Valley), all playing characters of substantial independence and distinction.

Everyone had a role in Gene’s future world. And for Gene, a woman’s role was primarily as a decorative tool in a man’s workshop.

Herb Solow, in Inside Star Trek: The Real Story, 1996 (p. 226). Solow was the Executive in Charge of Production at Desilu for the first two seasons of TOS. 

I love many of the TOS women characters, and think some of them were quite strong, but I appreciated Solow’s comparison to other shows of the time, that had recurring women characters in more prominent, independent roles. It shows such a thing was possible to create and sell, even in the 60s, that the era wasn’t the only thing that contributed to TOS’s representation of women.

So I got thinking… what if Julian Fellowes (creator of “Downton Abbey”) produced “Dark Shadows”? While I can create an episode of Dark Shadows in Downton Abbey’s style, I thought I’d try and see what the opening credits might look like. This mash-up is the result.

(Apologies to Dan Curtis & Julian Fellowes, the original creators and producers, and to Robert Cobert & John Lunn who wrote memorable theme music for their respective shows. And of course to the copyright holders. This is just a bit of fan fun, no copyright infringement intended.)

i always end up thinking about the economic damage in superhero movies

make a movie.

the movie would be set entirely in the office of one over-worked insurance agent answering phone calls and in the window behind him we see various Super Heroes destroying things
