October 27, 2008 - Tudi Wiggins Promo Photo
This week's archive item is another promotonal photo, this one of actress Tudi Wiggins, who played Erica Desmond in the Maljardin storyline, then later returned during the Desmond Hall storyline to play Helena Raleigh. The photo shows Helena with her hair styled for her wedding to Jean Paul, a wedding that never happened.

 



October 20, 2008 - Desmond Hall Plot Points
Featured this week is a portion of a document written to outline the various plot points that were to be included in the Desmond Hall storylines. This document served as a sort of blueprint for the writers, allowing them to tailor their scripts to include these various items. Amongst the items are several that either were not realized or were substantially altered onscreen. One of these is the ancient. time-stopping clock in the secret room that Jean Pauls uses to contact his ancestors and control time. Also featured here are comments about Quito's increasing "monstrousness", something that was only slightly alluded to in the broadcast episodes.



October 13, 2008 - Newport (RI) Daily News 11.14.69

Newport, Rhode Island was one US market that heavily promoted Strange Paradise. At right is an ad from the Newport Daily News, focusing on Alison Carr in that evening's Strange Paradise episode. This particular ad features a photo of Dawn Greenhalgh, in a shot clearly provided (based on Ms. Greenhalgh's hairstyle) prior to the filming of the show.

 


October 6, 2008 - Cosette Lee Publicity Photo
At right is one of a number of publicity photos taken for Strange Paradise. The majority of these photos wound up in the New York offices of Krantz Productions, as the photography contract stated that all photos remain the property of the production office. Following the dissolution of Krantz Films, most of these photos were destroyed, but a few survived in various places. This particular photo shows Cosette Lee in character as Raxl, Jean Paul's enigmatic servant.
