Picture of the Week: Safety First


Here's a candid snapshot of Nancy Barrett modelling a hard hat on location for Night of Dark Shadows in 1971. In the movie, Nancy played novelist Claire Jenkins, a relatively straight role compared to her previous Dark Shadows characters. Speaking to The Pittsburgh Press during filming, Nancy joked about being spared from the supernatural for once: "The girl... isn't bloodthirsty, she isn't even possessed by anything. All I'm afraid of is that when I kiss a guy in front of a movie camera, I'll forget and bite him instead."

Thanks... and from our own HOMETOWN Pittsburgh Newspaper...always thought the new Dark Shadows movie should consider Pittsburgh as a filming location...there are so many Shadows fans and its a low cost city with great architecture including cemeteries-- oh well, we can't have EVERYTHING! But Louie Edmonds would have been proud with his CMU connection!
