Picture of the Week: Night Time

This week marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Night of Dark Shadows, and here's its original promotional poster, featuring a brilliantly lurid painted montage, with a touch of rampant 70s-style sexiness. Dark Shadows had been cancelled earlier in 1971, and the project marked the final time the classic cast would work together on film.

Speaking to The Deseret News during production, actress Nancy Barrett (Claire Jenkins) reflected that: "There was an amazing rapport between all the actors on the TV show, so it's sad when a group that's worked that closely together has to break up. Doing this movie has kept some of us together for a while, so at least we didn't have to say goodbye all at once."
