I guess Roger Grimes was dead by '69.
Yes, I've always liked the idea of Christopher Lee as Alexis and Caress' father. However the cast in my opening credits is already so huge that many of them won't be in the trailers, so we'll see. I do have a few ideas for trailer 2, who'll be in it, and what's going to happen, but there may be a 3rd trailer too.
I think we need to kidnap you and force you to make endless trailers.
Young Caress reminds me of Kristin Shepard.
She does have that cascading down one side hair thing going on and sly eyes.
When Joan Collins said "what the hell are you doing here?" I assume she wasn't talking to Kate O'Mara - I mean, in the same movie?
Or was that line taken from Dynasty?
Never mind, let's not spoil the fantasy
I'm afraid, just like all the character 'interactions' in the trailer, it's an illusion.
I set myself a rule not to use any excerpts from Dynasty so all the voices you hear are from the actors in 1969 or thereabouts.
See? The illusions you've created are so effective that people think it's real!
Thanks, that's what I was aiming for. And more goes into making it seem like the characters are talking to each other than might first meet the eye. Their head, body and gaze needed to be facing the right direction and also clips brightness needed to be adjusted to make it seem like they were actually in the same room. Lots of trial and error but very satisfying once you get it right.
Would it be possible to make this a sticky topic, @Ome?
It's too fabulous for it to disappear in the dusty forum vaults.
Thank you, anonymous forum wizard
God, that's amazing!
Who would Elizabeth be? Blake's first fiancée? Alexis' cousin? Lady Queen Countess SomebodyOrAnother?
All of the above?
Thank you Willie! And anonymous forum wizard. I am delighted the trailer has achieved sticky status, an honour indeed.
This might be a good moment to mention a little about what's coming up in Trailer 2. Although I haven't started it yet (just feeling out some possible clips to use) so it's all subject to change depending on the footage I find, which ends up dictating the narrative to a large degree.
There will be a trip to Paris and some very special guest stars, some of whom may perish in a cataclysmic event involving lots of snow. Although I'm not prepared to say what that is at this point, so please don't press me on this.
I don't have it very defined in my head who she is, only that she is an old flame of Blake and, yes, quite possibly his ex fiance (giving Alexis all the more reason to hate her). One person who commented on YouTube suggested she play herself and be the actress in 'the incident with that actress', although I don't know if I like the idea of her playing herself. She certainly could be a member of the aristocracy, why not? I'm not sure if her being Alexis' cousin might be one cousin coincidence too many, but then, hey, it's Dynasty.
To me it looked as if she was pretending, maybe she didn't want to be there but she was blackmailed by someone who wanted to cause trouble for the Carringtons.
I bet it was Agatha Scott!
Of course, she could be the actress Elizabeth Taylor whose wig and Oscar Alexis once threw through a window and Blake's ex-fiancee.
For Taylor, that might not be all that much of a coincidence at all!
I just thought she was uneasy cause she was surprised to see Blake and maybe things didn't end that well between them. But your idea is a lot more juicy and sinister. And even though we don't know much about Agatha at this point it does seem like something she would do.
Either way the plan is that Liz will be causing trouble for the Carringtons in trailer 2 as she gets in the way of a possible reconciliation between Blake and Alexis.
You must go with your own instincts, in congress with the clips that fatefully make themselves available... You obviously know how to listen to nature even if some Pollocks did not!
I know, I know. I keep watching it over and over.
