    I just noticed this while looking at clips from The Colbys. I wonder what other sets the shows shared. I know that Alexis' penthouse became a restaurant on The Colbys. And Zach Powers' desk was really Alexis' dinning table repainted. But what else? What else?

    The proof...


    Look at those steps...

    Jasons office at Colby Enterprises was later reused as Blake's gouverneur-campagne-office on Dynasty's season 8.

    They didn't even bother to change the door framings for that.
    I'm glad they at least had the decency to remove the horse statue and the Charlton Heston painting so that it wouldn't be too obvious. :re:

    I always whished that they painted the woodwork. It just looked undone to me, in both versions of the set.

    Also Frankie's London home where she lived with Lord Langdon was a set made up of bits of The Carlton, that set from Clue. I think the house in California she briefly moved into with him was also made up of the same set. It's all that sort of gothic-y wood panelling and cornice. Sometimes stained wood, sometimes painted white.

    Maybe that was original woodwork from that small Colby-Woodwork-company in Eureka, you know, the one that wasn't for sale and where grandpa Colby started it all. :D

    That would mean that this set actually had it's first appearance on The Colbys? Because Frankies London home was the season before the Carlton was introduced after windowless La Mirage went up in flames. Oh man, this is getting too complicated now, it's one in the night and i'm up for 17 hours now... good night. :p

    It's definitely the same set. Or pieces of it from the Clue set. I think Jason first telephones her in London then shows up at her house.

    I dunno
    This isn't unique for Dynasty/Colby's when it comes to Aaron Spelling show - Adam's nightclub on Models Inc became Ben's nightclub on Sunset Beach as an example. The man was notoriously cheap - he wasn't about to let set built to be wasted. And that's not to mention all the stock footage his shows shared.

    I'm watching HOTEL on and off at the minute I have realised that they only have about 3 actual hotel room sets which are all slightly different. They just keep redressing them to make them look like different suites/rooms. Just like they did with the apartments on Melrose Place.

    I had thought that those two sets were the same set but was never sure. It actually just looked like a back corner of a soundstage industrial staircase and all, with a bar added. I wish I had screen shots to compare.

    And isn't Zach Power's entire hotel "Excelsior" from season 2 actually the "Saint Gregory's"? ;)

    I never really notice sharing/reusing of things on productions. I do remember someone elsewhere posting these:

    Sable wore a ton of stuff from The Colbys on season 9 of Dynasty didn't she? And there is this one gold and diamond necklace that was worn by EVERYBODY. I mean, Alexis, Krystle, Dominique, Claudia, Sable all wore this necklace.

    The necklace Joan is wearing here is probably the most worn thing on DYNASTY.
