Connections between "Falcon Crest" and Other Productions
 
(revised 02/07/2022)
 
 
 
 
This section deals with everything LORIMAR's wardrobe department was in charge of, i.e. not only clothes, but also accessories like belts and jewelry, etc.
 
While JANE WYMAN had the general privilege to take and keep her costumes from the "Falcon Crest" set, the other actors and actresses had this possibility only by special permission on rare occasions; sometimes, they would be allowed to purchase items from the wardrobe department at a reduced price. Most costumes went back to the wardrobe department, however, to be reused on other shows. During season 6, SUSAN SULLIVAN's wardrobe was sometimes passed on to JANE BADLER, who, with slight alterations, wore them on the show.
 
"Falcon Crest" also used wardrobe and accessories previously worn on other LORIMAR shows.
 
 
 
 
"Dallas":
 
(chronologically as used on "Falcon Crest"):
 
 

  • Fur Coat:
     
    The fur Chase gave Maggie for their anniversary in "Cold Comfort" (# 096 <4.28>; original U.S. airdate: 05/10/1985, CBS) on "Falcon Crest" and which was reused as the fur "Monica" wanted to buy in "Law and Ardor" (# 119 <5.21>; original U.S. airdate: 02/28/1986, CBS) — upper row of screen captures — ended up on "Dallas": first, in "Malice in Dallas" (# 272 <9.21 – original count> / <10.21 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 02/26/1988, CBS) where SHEREE J. WILSON's character April Stevens tried it on in a clothes store (screen capture 3); later in "Paradise Lost" (# 327 <12.20 – original count> / <13.20 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 03/09/1990, CBS) in another fur store (on the left on the clothes rail in the background; screen grab 4).
  •  
     
  • White / Yellow Blouse:
     
    SUSAN SULLIVAN's old wardrobe usually ended up on "Dallas" where it was given to VICTORIA PRINCIPAL, who is less than an inch shorter than SUSAN, so the clothes would fit without having them altered.
    Just one example here is a blouse worn by SUSAN in "The Phoenix" (# 099 <5.01>; original U.S. airdate: 10/04/1985, CBS) of "Falcon Crest" and worn by VICTORIA in "Return to Camelot — Part 1" (# 223 <9.01 – original count> / <10.01 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 09/26/1986, CBS) of "Dallas".
  •  
     
  • Colorful Blouse:
     
    Emma's colorful blouse from "Luck Wave" (# 213 <9.08; original U.S. airdate: 12/01/1989, CBS) was previously worn in "Territorial Imperative" (# 229 <9.07 – original count> / <10.07 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 10/31/1986, CBS) of LORIMAR's "Dallas" by PRISCILLA BEAULIEU PRESLEY, who is approximately the same height as MARGARET LADD.
    On "Dallas", it was worn as a two-piece set with a matching skirt while Emma, on "Falcon Crest", wears it in combination with black slacks.
 
 
 
"Flamingo Road"
 
(chronologically as used on "Falcon Crest"):
 
 
  • Wedding Dress:
     
    Melissa's wedding dress from "The Good, the Bad, and the Profane" (# 016 <1.16>; original U.S. airdate: 04/02/1981, CBS) was previously worn in the pilot of "Flamingo Road" (# 01 <1.01>; original U.S. airdate: 05/12/1980, NBC) by MORGAN FAIRCHILD's character Constance Weldon for her wedding with Fielding Carlyle. The dress originally had no sleeves. For ANA ALICIA, the costumers simply added similar lace sleeves to the dress.
  •  
     
  • Blue Blouse:
     
    In "The Arrival" (# 020 <2.02>; original U.S. airdate: 10/08/1982, CBS), ANA ALICIA, as Melissa, is dressed for the baby party in the same outfit that CRISTINA RAINES wore as Lane Ballou in "The Fish Fry" (# 06 <1.06>; original U.S. airdate: 02/03/1981, NBC) of "Flamingo Road".
    In that LORIMAR series, SHIRLEY CUNNINGHAM also served as the women's costume supervisor.

  • Pin-Stripe Suit:
     
    In "The Exposé" (# 023 <2.05>; original U.S. airdate: 11/05/1982, CBS), DAVID SELBY, as Richard, wears the exact same dark gray pin-stripe that he wore as Michael Tyrone / Edwards in the "Flamingo Road" episode "Little Foxes" (# 22 <2.07>; original U.S. airdate: 12/22/1981, NBC; screen grab 1) in the preceding TV season.
    In that LORIMAR series, YON DeLINDEN also served as the men's costume supervisor, and PAUL DAFELMAIR as the set costumer for men.
  •  
     
  • Striped Tie:
     
    In "The Exposé" (# 023 <2.05>; original U.S. airdate: 11/05/1982, CBS), DAVID SELBY, as Richard, wears the same tie that MARK HARMON wore as Fielding Carlyle in two "Flamingo Road" episodes in the 1981-82 season: "Little Foxes" (# 22 <2.07>; original U.S. airdate: 12/22/1981, NBC; screen grab 1) and "The Explosion" (# 27 <2.12>; original U.S. airdate: 02/09/1982, NBC; screen capture 2).

  •  
     
  • Uniform Shoulder Patches:
     
    The Truro County Sheriff Department uniforms at the plane crash rescue site in Colorado (# 069; screen capture 2) are reused wardrobe parts from LORIMAR's "Flamingo Road", which was set in a fictional town called Truro, FL. "Truro County" is legible on Sheriff Kingman's uniform in particular. The comparison shot is a screen grab from the "Flamingo Road" pilot (# 01 <1.10>; original U.S. airdate: 05/12/1980, NBC).
