Dark Shadows

Show generally

Continuity mistake: 1967: Barnabas selects a treasure from a jewelry chest while bad guy Jason spies on him through a window. Willie is supposed to put the chest away, but when Jason later breaks in to steal it, the chest is still sitting on the table in plain view, so Jason has to pretend not to notice it. The break-in scene is recapped the next day, only this time, the chest is no longer on the table.

Continuity mistake: The newly-cured Barnabas, wearing a red striped bathrobe, screams when Dr. Woodward opens the drapes to let the sunlight in. When the same scene is recapped the next day, Barnabas is suddenly wearing a solid blue bathrobe.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: 1967: "Dark Shadows"' taping schedule seldom permitted retakes. Consequently, hundreds of goofs ended up on the air. Perhaps the funniest of them all occurred in a scene inside the Collins mausoleum, where the late Louis Edmonds was supposed to say, "Some of my ancestors are buried here." What came out was "Some of my incestors are buried here." To his credit, Edmonds not only kept his cool, but laughed and corrected the mistake in character.

Mistakes

1897: Quentin challenges Barnabas by pulling a decorative sword from a wall display and pointing it at his throat. Unfortunately, the display wasn't all that well attached to the set wall. Though the camera pans away, you can hear a loud clunk as the piece falls, followed by the loud crash of shattering glass as it strikes and breaks a table lamp. You can also see the actors struggling very hard to keep straight faces as they continue with their lines.

Trivia

Exteriors for Collinwood were shot at what was then known as "Seaview Terrace" in Newport, Rhode Island. Now known as the Carey Mansion, the building has recently been made accessible for group events, and now hosts an annual gathering of Dark Shadows fans.
