David Jacobs on How He Created ‘Dallas’ and ‘Knots Landing’—and Changed Primetime TV (yahoo.com)
Great Article - In my book David gets rather little recognition that he created DALLAS, it was always Leonard Katzman/Phil Capice!
Imagine Dallas’ J.R. Ewing—that cackling, whisky tumbler-holding...
Does anyone know, who decides what the actors wore for each scene they had? Did they have a rack of clothes and they picked the clothes out for themselves?
Did the Wardrobe person decide?
Anyone know, as I just wondered? If a wardrobe person picked clothes, then my memorable disasters are...
I have started to watch my old DVDs of Dallas Season 7.
Bobby and Pam are divorced, but their acting whilst apart showing us the viewer the angst that they still wanted each other, Mark and Jenna must be thick! Got to commend PD and VP on their acting in this season.
Sue Ellen and Peter’s...

Has anyone who has used this forum actually met or seen the elusive Victoria in person, I would love to know if anyone has?
I know she is very private - just wondered if anyone has even seen her in the distance, conversed with her or whatever! Any takers, if so, what was the experience like...

Sue Ellen Ewing ......JR branded her a "drunk and unfit mother!".....was she really that bad.
JR drove her to drink in the early years with his bedhopping ways and many mistresses, she was the downtrodden loyal wife until Wham Bam she saw the light.
She was a good Mother to John Ross...
Both Ewing wives eventually found their own "vocation in life" shall we say:
Pamela a partner in Barnes Wentworth
Swellin turning Valentine Lingerie into a Multi Million $$$$$ business
Which had the most business savvy would you say?
I am on the fence, both were successful in their own...
A quote by the lovely Victoria Principal on the interview I think she shared with Dallas Fanzine.
Was she right? 1978 to 1983, the show was at its best!
Who shot JR
Do you all agree?
For me it ended in 1987 "the fall of the house of Ewing" - when VP closed the door on Southfork...
