Princess Asa Signs In
Paul Zdanowicz writes:
"I recently had the privilege to have my copy of MARIO BAVA ALL THE COLORS OF THEN DARK signed by none other than Barbara Steele. I met her yesterday at Chiller Theater in NJ. She was in love with the book and, from my impression, she has never seen it before. I wanted her to sign the cover under the gold mask to which she replied, 'I will absolutely not! It's too beautiful! I'll sign the inside.'"
Paul thoughtfully snapped this photo of the historic moment. We've heard of people talking about the book with Barbara, but this is the first account we've heard of her actually seeing it or signing a copy. So Paul may well have the first copy to claim this distinction. Alas, we don't have a current address for Barbara and so haven't been able to send her a copy of the book, but Donna and I are happy to know she's enthusiastic about it. And I'm sure that Charlie Largent, who designed the gold mask adorning the hard cover, will be especially flattered by the praise of she who wore the original.
