Nick Knight movie (1989) turns 20 later this week

FK--Nick
According to the Forever Knight wiki Nick Knight (the original backdoor pilot) first aired on CBS on August 20, 1989. It was a Sunday. Twenty years huh.

There's still a few days to go but I do want to do something to mark the occasion. After all, without Nick Knight there would be no Forever Knight.

I'm working on a short celebratory/movie recap vid. If I didn't already love this version of Alyce Hunter I would after working on this vid. Her awesomeness doesn't really come through in the vid, as of now, which is a shame but she cracks me up.

How wonderful to remind us of this significant date. So, we have a week full of celebrations ahead of us, with Lucien Lacroix celebrating the 1930th anniversary of his conversion 4 days later.

Oh my goodness that's true isn't it? I had completely forgotten about that. Thanks so much for bringing that to my attention. A full week of celebrations indeed. :-)

Thank you for noticing that, and for sharing it. Come to think of it, I've never actually watched my Nick Knight DVD; the last time I saw the movie, it was on VHS! (I'm so weird, buying DVDs and not watching them.) This is an excellent excuse to trot it out and boggle over the differences and similarities.

(Once, the company for which I work threw a big anniversary party, at which a private performance by Rick Springfield was this major prize. People around me spoke about his music; my mind, of course, was on Nick Knight. I didn't win, which is good! ~g~)

VHS! Now that's old school. Does the DVD still have the shrink wrap? ;-)

Absolutely! I find it so interesting how two productions with essentially the same script can churn out different versions of the same story. It goes to show the influence of director, score, performances and other production design elements on the finished product.

I do think the movie goes down a whole lot easier if you revel in the campiness. Although I don't think there's anything that can help the LaCroix character. It's wrong on so many levels, lol. That being said, I think I'm in the small minority that rather enjoys Nick Knight.
