I had the good fortune to speak to Grayson Hall in the late 60's. I was just a kid and I simply adored Miss Hall... I some how found out her telephone number and so I decided to call. The telephone rang and I felt my heart racing... Would she actually pick up the phone? Two seconds later, I heard her voice!!! We spoke for about 10 minutes and I was in complete awe of this great lady. She was so gracious and so very nice. I remember asking her if she were anything like the character she played on Dark Shadows, Dr. Julia Hoffman. Her reply in her raspy was hell no " Julia is such a scatterbrain", she chuckled and we both began to laugh. I will cherish this always. A couple of days later there was an autograph sent to me from her in the mail. Grayson Hall was truly one of a kind and I still adore her to this very day.
