Songbird salutes the '70s

There's a movie on cable tonight, "House of Dark Shadows", starring Jonathan Frid. Released in 1970, it was a more graphic and violent version of a popular Gothic soap opera.  The TV show was a child of the 60's, but the movie, and its sequel "Night of Dark Shadows", brought the Barnabas Collins legend into the 70's.

The producer, Dan Curtis, tried to revive the show twice with new casts, without success.

But guess who was a "Dark Shadows" fan growing up?

Johnny Depp.

And guess who will be starring in the new "Dark Shadows" movie next summer?

Yep, Depp.

Can't wait to see it.
