Those of you who follow DARK SHADOWS are probably aware of the struggle myself and the folks at DAN CURTIS PRODUCTIONS have been having getting the 1971 film, NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS restored. Although preservation elements were recovered in 1999, the necessary print and sound work has yet to be green-lighted by the studio. The US and Int'l video divisions have been approached as well as international TV and all have turned us down. Time is turning into a bit of an issue as some of the actors who need to re-record missing dialogue are not in the greatest of health. Our current plan of attack in order to launch the restoration is to propose it to the knowledgeable folks at TCM who have sponsored such restorations before. We plan on pitching to them within the next month. For the past several months we've been encouraging people to go to the TCM website and (under the REQUEST A MOVIE banner) specifically request the 'NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS- 129 min restored director's cut.' The programmers and heads of TCM pay attention to viewer requests and by doing this, they will be fully aware of the film, it's audience, and the enthusiasm for the restoration. It may take a while before it gets launched on video after that, but at least it would be finished and available to an audience. So, please, click on over and place a request. CLICK HERE TO REQUEST THROUGH TCM WEBSITE! Thanks!
