Moments from the Past!
"Video Collection #1"

1.  With "Dynasty" a ratings winner, ABC's "20/20" caught up with Joan Collins,
for an exceptional "up close" interview, in which she talks at length about her character on 
the show, and how it reflects her own personality.  Interestingly, they also interview Susan 
Lucci, and it's funny listening to Joan's thoughts on the popular day time star. "Who?"  
It's clear there is only one 'bitch.' 

2.  Appearing on "Good Morning America" Joan shares with us, her thoughts on her 
recent pictorial in "Playboy" magazine.  While I applaud her decision, I find it interesting 
all these years later, that the reasons haven't changed.  If you were to ask any of the
 "playmates" today, the answer would be the same.

3.  Appearing on the Emmy awards, Joan is on hand with Linda and John as they
present one of the awards of the evening.  They all look "great!"

4.  Looking "sensational" Joan stops by the set of "Hour Magazine" for a delightful visit! 
 With thirty years of the business under her belt, Joan talks about the things she is able 
to do now, that she never would have dreamed of doing when she first started.  On a
lighthearted note, Joan talks about her recent pictorial in "Playboy."  She also goes on 
to talk about her autobiography, "Past Imperfect" and Gary gets himself into a spot of 
trouble, when it comes to talking about the men in Joan's life.  She confronts the 
"headlines" as Gary brings to her attention all the things they have been writing about 
her in the tabloids.  Joan's reaction is priceless, as she discounts more than a few of
them!  She's full of spirit, smiling and having a wonderful time!

5.  Joined in progress, Joan stops by the "Tonight Show" for a spirited visit with guest
host, "Joan Rivers."  As you might imagine, the two ladies are more than "chatty" with one 
another!  Always lead by Ms. Rivers fascination with the topic of "sex" the interview becomes 
a "tell - all!" in which Joan spills more than a few secrets!  She's more than willing to share 
with us, her feelings on "everything!"  Her "pictorial in Playboy" "younger men" "all those 
sex scenes on Dynasty" and so much more!  Candid and upfront, Joan doesn't miss a beat, 
as she talks about everything!

6.  During a special "Dean Martin Celebrity Roast, Honoring Joan Collins" we are treated an 
exceptional star studded evening honoring the talented actress.  Joan looks gorgeous!  
Throughout the program, her friends speak fondly of her, while giving us more than a 
few laughs!  It's a great evening!  With some of the best!

7.  Looking absolutely "radiant" Joan makes a splendid return to the set of "Hour
Magazine."  With "Dynasty" becoming such a success, she talks about what it has done
for her, not only in terms of her career, but also in her personal life.  She's thrilled with the
success of show!  During the show, they present a few minutes of Joan receiving her 
"Star" on Hollywood Blvd., from earlier in the day.  Speaking candidly about the show, Joan
talks about her inspiration for Alexis!  On a personal note, she discusses her family, including
the accident which involved her daughter.  Great interview!  Wonderful "up close" moment!

8.  With the release of her book, "Past Imperfect" here in the States, Joan stops by the
set of the "Today Show" for an interesting interview.  She looks sensational!  Touching
upon the men that she has been involved with, she discusses the qualities that she looks
for in a man.  She also mentions many other things.  Wonderful "full" screen moment!
During the second part of her interview the conversation returns to her book, and the
reason for writing it, which is a direct reflection of Joan's image, and being a woman in
the business.  "I don't do things the easy way" she confides.  Great interview!

9.  Looking absolutely "beautiful" Joan gives an insightful and interesting interview to
Helen Gurley Brown, of "Cosmopolitan" magazine.  The conversation centers around Joan's
life and career, touching upon a variety of things.  Joan seems very open and willing to 
share her thoughts on her "past" no matter how "imperfect" it may have seemed to others.
Romance has always played a part in her life, and matters of the heart!  Which discusses in
great detail!  This is a very nice interview!

10.  Following the success of "Dynasty" Joan stepped into a variety of roles, that seemed
to be tailor made for the talented star!  On the set of the "Cartier Affair" she talks about
her character in the movie, during this interview from "Entertainment Tonight."

where she talks about her role on "Dynasty."  Which has afforded her an opportunity to
be one of the most successful women in Hollywood.
"Video Collection #2"

1.  When it comes to "vixens" the 80's firmly established "Joan Collins" as one of the best,
along with the delightful "Morgan Fairchild!"  So it seemed only fitting that two ladies would
host a special together, titled:  "Blondes vs. Brunettes!"  Throughout the program it's hard to
say who looked more "gorgeous!"  Both of them look stunning!  Playing upon the roles that each
of them have created, Joan steps into the role of "Krystal Carrington" while Morgan plays the
devilish "Alexis!"  It doesn't get any better than this!  Several other skits find the two talented 
actresses exploring the age old question, do blondes have more fun?  Or brunettes?  
Morgan and Joan are having a great time!

2.  Looking absolutely stunning, Joan makes a wonderful appearance on the "Phil Donahue"
show.  Many of the things she mentioned earlier in some of the previous interviews, are 
touched upon again, but in greater detail.  It's an exceptional hour with the talented star!

7.  During this short segment from "Entertainment Tonight" Joan talks about her
mini-series, "Sins."  If there seems to be a similarity between her character in the series
and Alexis, it's because Joan didn't want to totally step away from the type of individual
that her fans have come to expect from her.  Which often leads many to describe a woman
with that much strength and conviction, as being "bitchy."  A quality that Joan quickly
defends.  Wonderful "full" screen moment.  She looks fantastic!

giving a hundred and ten percent.  While in London Joan takes a moment to visit with her 
father, before returning to the States.

9.  Returning to Paris, "Entertainment Tonight" caught up with Joan on the set of her next project,

about her family, and why England will always be her home!  Throughout the rest of the interview,

she looks absolutely gorgeous!  Joan is always working on some sort of project, this time around
she's promoting her brand new book.  Which dominates the first part of the interview.  After the
break, she explains the difference between talk shows in England, and those that we see here in
the States.  Which leads her talk about other differences.  Great interview!

from the image that they know her most by, "Alexis."

experienced her share of "ups and downs" throughout the years, but she picks herself up
and carries on!  She talks about her brand new book, and many other things!  Far too things
to mention!  It's a delightful hour!

8. Although joined in progress, this next moment from the "Arsenio Hall Show" provides
us with a wonderful glimpse of Joan!  After talking about her current project, she is asked
about her children, and how they are doing.  Following that, she puts to rest the notion that
she is like her character on "Dynasty."  Which she finds funny, because she has left the show
and yet, they still want to make the comparison between them.  She goes on to talk about

the two cultures.  The fun doesn't stop there!  They present a scene from "Dynasty" dubbed
in French!  And it's hilarious!  After which, Joan points out that we need to replay the tape,
because it's her "stand in" that Blake is choking!  Which is so funny!  And there's more!
Greg slips and says something that is unintentionally taken wrong, and Joan exclaims, "I
didn't know you were 'that way!'" After which she quickly apologizes because she knows
that he isn't gay, but it played right along with all the fun they were having together!  After
the break the fun continues, as Joan demonstrates one of her exercises from her brand
new video, and so the two of them are doing the "hula!"  This was one of those "rare" 
moments, which allowed us to see the "playful" side of Joan!  And there's much more,
than what I've mentioned here!  She was laughing and having fun the whole show!
Truly not to be missed!

"Thank you"
for taking the time to read through these rather lengthy descriptions!  

I know it seems rather "incredible" to believe!  
All these moments from the past.
Moments that you might have missed recording.
And those that you have only heard about!

Throughout the years, I've
shared many of these clips from my collection
with my friends, and they have always been astounded by all the appearances
that I was able to record.  To ensure the highest quality possible, I use a "dual deck"
vcr when I'm sharing any of these moments from my collection.
I look forward to hearing from you!
