WANTED: "FALCON CREST" MATERIALS
Sell your collectibles to the fan club archives! The DFCF is interested in buying additional materials for its fan club archives to improve further research. Please contact the fan club via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by letter, fax or phone to offer your materials, such as publicity photos, slides, scripts, newspaper and magazine clippings, props from the series or whatever might be connected with the show. As far as photos and printed materials are concerned, these items do not necessarily have to be original materials; please do not hesitate to offer photocopies or reprints because they might be sufficient for the club's needs in some cases. The following is a list of some specific items the fan club needs:
Cast Group Portraits
Season 5 (1985-86):
The DFCF is looking for a good-quality screened copy of this official cast group picture from 1985, which was taken at the Tuscany Downs Turf Club interior set while shooting # 112 for the cast and crew's seasons greetings.
What is pictured is a screen grab from a video of the 1985 CBS Christmas greetings of the "Falcon Crest" cast and crew. A similar pose, however, was not only filmed, but taken as a publicity still by a photographer on the set.
Season 6 (1986-87):
The DFCF is looking for a good-quality screened copy of a cast group picture from the 1986-87 season.
There may be additional shots from the 1986 Christmas promo for CBS and LORIMAR taken in the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion study (a photo of parts of the cast and crew on the left and a photo of parts of the cast on the right; both taken while filming # 143). The additional pictures may include ROBERT FOXWORTH, DAVID SELBY, DANA SPARKS and SUSAN SULLIVAN; also maybe BRETT CULLEN and JOHN CALLAHAN.
Any other stills or slides are also welcome.
LORIMAR / CBS Program Synopses
The DFCF is looking for the complete seasonal program synopses, which were sent out to the press by LORIMAR and CBS during the show's initial broadcast:
Season 4 (1984-85) — # 072 <4.04> only
Season 6 (1986-87)
Season 7 (1987-88)
Season 8 (1988-89)
As the sample illustrates, it is the seasonal collection of episode summaries — with the production code and the episode title as well as an overview of the plot and a detailed cast list at the bottom (one page per episode). Photocopies or scans are welcome.
The DFCF is also looking for scripts, shooting schedules and call sheets in order to complete the collections of the CHAO-LI CHI Memorial Library maintained by the fan club. Photocopies or scans are welcome.
Videos of "Falcon Crest" Related Interviews
The DFCF is also looking for videos of interviews with "Falcon Crest" cast and crew members. In the 1980s, many of the stars appeared on shows like "The Tonight Show", "Merv Griffin", etc. In case you have video tapes, the DFCF will be happy to buy them to conserve them on DVD. The seller will obtain a copy of the DVD, of course, in addition to the payment.
The DFCF is also looking for addresses and photos of filming locations, which have not been identified yet.
