Here's a great snap of David Henesy (David Collins) peering out from the secret doorway in the Collinwood drawing room. Although Dark Shadows began as a rather more conventional soap opera, this hidden entrance was built into the set from the start and incorporated into the storylines as time went on. It also served a more practical function, allowing access to both the back of the scenery and the doorway located on the neighbouring foyer landing. Look closely and you'll see the handgrip on the centre panel.
