6:45 am - Monday's Angel


(Posting for Siobhan14)


at the eye doctor,

picking out the gold

wire frames

that will,

in the coming decades,

make Fangirls the world over

swoon when they see Dwight

wear his glasses.

9:17 am - Recent Dwight projects:

I just realised that it's been a wee while since anyone had actually posted on this page and I just thought I would just to keep the love alive :)I mean I've been on other Dwight pages were some people started posting advertisements and that just makes me mad so I'm posting as many places as possible :)

My role in Dwight's fandom has been quiet of late and I just wanted to share a couple of things that I have been up to in memory of Dwight though they've taken up minimal work.

A couple of months ago I wrote a biography regarding Mr Frye on my other blog at Vintage_gold which is available on public view, Really there is nothing there you haven't read before but there are a couple of personal observations.


I've also started another fan forum at proboards which has a few fans but is quite quiet. This was started on a whim and so how long it goes on for is anyone's guess but for anyone that's interested the address is:


I have not made any other Dwight videos partly because of my lack of time and partly because my PC doesn't let me any more :( However I am wanting to return to witing fan fiction as it is something I enjoy doing when I get the opportunity. I would not post that on here however though I am considering adding a fan fiction section at proboards... not sure though because some of the stuff is a little risky.

Hope all Dwight fans are keeping well and enjoying 2011 so far :)

9:44 am - IMDB changes.

The IMDB seems to be yet another site that has updated it's presentation, though I think it is actually improved for once. There are 13 Dwight videos available, including full versions of "The Vampire Bat" and "Renfrew of the Royal Mounted".

8:12 am - Dwight makes the list


I don't know if anyone has mentioned this before but I found this list (via IMDB) of the Top 10 Evil hechmen and Dwight is in the top 5 not once but twice which made me smile.

10:46 am - Just wanted to say...

 I really think we should start having official Dwight character caption contests or something. I mean, think of all the joy we could have with THIS:

Okay, so I have a slight Fritz obsession. Not like that's new!!

10:14 am - Help with a website

I just realized I've lost the link for a Dwight site I used to alwys frequent. I believe it was created by a woman named Joanne and the title was something like Dwight Frye: The Man Behind The Insanity. It had a bunch of reviews she had done of his films with photos. Can anyone forward me the web address of this site? I'd appreciate it so much. ;)

11:59 pm

On my way to work tonight they played "The Ballad of Dwight Fry" on the radio. What surprised me was the DJ said he hand-picked it because he thought it was great that Alice Cooper wanted to keep his memory alive, and he, too, felt it should be kept alive. He also noted how his part in Dracula kind of doomed his career and he[, the DJ,] showed sypmathy for that. I don't know... it just made me smile knowing someone cared ;p
Also, The Circus Queen Murder will be playing September 25th at 9:45am. Mark your calendars!

9:52 am - Flying Blind and the Western Code

Holy cats!  I scored a couple of really clear copies of both of these films a little while ago:  I have a really clear copy of Flying Blind on VHS (which I need to get converted over to DVD at the earliest opportunity!) and a remastered copy of The Western Code, which was done by the fans of Tim McCoy (a "10 out of 10", as they call it)!

Flying Blind is an absolutely abysmal film, but it has a couple moments of pure Dwighty gold (which I'll upload in a clearer clip once I transfer this bad boy to DVD).  The Western Code is actually a really entertaining film in its own rite.

Anywho...I'm always happy to share the love once I can get these gems ready to share.  Please let me know if you're interested!

If you'd rather have an original, I got Flying Blind here (which has since been offered on DVD as well):

And Western Code here:

11:20 pm - Adventure in Sahara

Adventure in Sahara

  • Jun. 13th, 2009 at 11:10 PM
First of all, I want to express my appreciation for all this group is doing to preserve Dwight's memory.  I hope it is okay that I post here.  I just wanted to share the news that Adventure in Sahara (1938), one of the Frye films that few if any have seen (along with Sleepytime Gal and Invisible Enemy) is coming out on DVD on 9/29/09.  It will not be released on its own, however, but as part of The Sam Fuller Collection.  This film was one of noted director Fuller's early writing jobs in Hollywood.  I saw this information on the TCM site.  When Greg Mank and I were researching Dwight Frye's Last Laugh, we tried to get a print of Adventure in Sahara to view, but did not succeed.  From everything I have read in my research, the role of Gravet ("the Jackal") is a colorful one for Dwight.

2:36 am - Hiiiii


So, I got bored the other day and made about eight billion icons, three of which happened to be of Dwight, and I figured I'd post them here. :)


I've got a bunch of other, more random ones at my journal, but these are the only Dwight ones. :)

7:54 pm - An idea...(DFHS)


Well I was thinking. Sure we fans have a facebook, myspace, livejournal ect. but we don't have an actual site of our own. We should really get started on that.

Maybe we should start a real organized group. The Dwight Frye Historical Society (DFHS)- dedicated to preserving the memory of America' s first method actor.

Now I don't know much about making websites, ursie_rae however is a computer scientist. I say we all band together and get started.

Do you think there is anyway we could get the content from the old site?

9:20 pm - There's a Shoggoth on my roof!


Hello girls!

Soo anyway I found out something that may interest you all. Ever read much H.P Lovecraft? In one of his stories “The Dunwich Horror” (published in 1928) an entire family vanishes (well later its learned that they were killed) guess what that families’ name is?


Frye. With the “e” and everything.


I’m telling you it’s a curse!


(By the way don’t you think Dwight would make a lovely Herbert West?)

Well I thought I'd post the link again to the role-playing in case some people missed it. </a></font></b></a>frye_fest

Sorry! I'll delete it if takes up space*

* Yeah that sounded pathetic but I have an inate fear of taking up too much space.

8:53 pm - Sitting Pretty

I was wondering if anyone has any photos of Dwight or anything else in the play "Sitting Pretty." I just bought the 1990 recording of this Jerome Kern, Guy Bolton and PG Wodehouse musical, which obviously won't feature Dwight's lovely voice but I was thinking of uploading it to metacafe is anyone is interested in having a listen and imagining Dwight singing some of the lyrics... as I'm about to do.

8:34 pm - The Dwight Crossover


Hello everyone! I wanted to bring that Dwight crossover story back to the surface.


In a nutshell it’s about the first ever gathering of the Dwight Frye fans, in a large rented vacation property/resort. One mourning the unthinkable happens: Dwight’s characters begin to appear throughout the property over the course of next few days. It’s up to the fans to not only round up the characters but to prepare them for life in the 21st century. Along with the fans is Taylor Anderson who has come with Sophie Carlucci (Noldo) to see the sights of California.


Fritz Vorlic stared at his reflection in the mirror.


The jacket and pants he was wearing were made out of soft comfortable denim. His hair was untidy as usual but clean. Sighing he rubbed the stubble on his cheeks – one of the women had looked positively horrified when he had asked for a straight razor, oddly enough another had burst into laughter.



A scream and a loud clunking noise had shattered the calm mourning silence in the east wing. Sophie Carlucci  ran in to the living area of the suite they shared. Taylor stood over the body of a man who (Sophie noted thankfully) was still breathing. Taylor grasped the thick book she had hit him with to her chest.


“I was just sitting, reading- and then I saw him! He came out of nowhere!”    


I was thinking we’d write in a role playing style.  If you girls like the idea I’ll create a community for it and post more information there.


Okay the community is up and running! Lets get the show on the road!

11:17 am - I am so forgetful...


*sigh* I missed yet another Dwight film (People vs. Dr. Kildare). Though I had to spend Monday cramming for a microbiology test, I would have liked to take an hour or two to see this film. Perhaps next time someone could send me a reminder? haha That would be greatly appreciated.
Please and thank you :]

Hi there, ladies. You can call me Sadie. Somebody from youtube found me and told me about this community. I was glad to see I was not the only fangirl out there :D Anyway, just wanted to say I am having an Oscar party on the 22nd, and since that is Dwight's birthday, I will be dressing up in honor of his era. Flapper dress, fingerwaves, red lipstick... Is anybody else doing something in memory of Dwight?

current mood: good
