Dark Shadows

Show generally

Audio problem: 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.

Show generally

Audio problem: In several episodes, there is a shot of the grandfather clock in the downstairs hall. When the camera comes in for a close-up of the face of the clock, a chime can be heard. It is the Westminster chime, which normally sounds on the quarter hour (4 notes), the half (8 notes), the three-quarter (12 notes) and the hour (16 notes plus the number of hours). However, on several occasions, the clock is off-strike, either by the number of notes it chimes or chiming when it normally would not (for example, at 11:20).

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.
