JContheCover - New Countries - Ex Yugoslavia (1987)

Today's post from the box is what is known as a photo novel magazine from ex Yugoslavia.

Dated 1987 Joan is featured on the cover with black and white photos on every page.

This issue would appear to tie in with season 6 as there are pictures of Alexis with King Galen.
Presumably this was a regular publication in Yugoslavia and they show up on Ebay quite often for those who are interested.

JContheCover - New Countries - Iceland

Today I welcome Iceland to the website with the gorgeous cover shot of Joan on a 1984 magazine, which I obtained earlier this year.

This one took a bit of working out with translation software, so apologies if there are any errors. Inside the magazine is a 9 page article with small pictures from the photo-shoot.

Another new country tomorrow!!

JContheCover - New Countries - South Africa

While sorting through some boxes that haven't seen daylight since my housemove - I came across a file and a stack of new magazines featuring Joan that do not appear on the website.

Thanks to all the fans who have e-mailed me recently, and continue to visit the site and blog - its nice to know that Joan is so popular in so many countries (46 in total have now visited the site)
As previously mentioned the area of most interest are the magazines and covers, so rather than post these new additions straight to the website, I am restarting the popular JConthecover post.

Today I welcome South Africa to the site - this cover of Joan is from July 1985. Unfortunately, I don't have the complete magazine so cannot report on its content or whether Joan just features on the cover.
If anyone owns a copy, please send me an e-mail.

Check back tomorrow for another new magazine cover.

Daily Picture - Kissing Cousins?

This picture is the elevator scene in Dynasty with Joan and Stephanie Beacham as cousin Sable (or Sybil as Alexis liked to call her).
Every time Alexis pressed the button for the floor of her suite, Sable pressed the call button preventing the elevator from moving and giving her chance to tackle Alexis. Neatly written scene.

Daily Picture - Care For A Cinzano?

Today I am featuring another photograph from the classic Cinzano commercials, this one was 'Roller Disco' and as usual Joan had the drink thrown down her front by Leonard.
They certainly don't make adverts like these anymore.

Dynasty - "Where did it go wrong Blake?"

Today's picture is from Dynasty Season 7, the late John Forsythe and Joan in the 2 part episode, "A Love Remembered".

Fans will recall this episode where last minute Ben rescues Blake who had been trapped under a steel beam on the oil rig. Blake and Ben narrowly escape the explosion, but Blake suffers amnesia and can only remember the year is 1964, and his wife Alexis.

So in true Alexis style (what else?) she tells the doctors at the Singapore hospital she is indeed Mrs Carrington and sets her sights on regaining half of the South China Sea Oil Leases back to her name.

This picture was also used as a promotion for the series on an American poster which I will add to the advertising section of the website. I think it was a great storyline, especially the part towards the end of the next episode when Blake recovers and realises he is married to Krystle and Alexis watches from the balcony of the villa has lost him, and it was just "A Love Remembered".

Todays post is this Dynasty advert for Season 1 and 2's release on DVD. Here in the UK we are eagerly awaiting the release of Season 7, hopefully it won't be too long.

Following on from yesterday's post of film adverts,which have been quite popular - thanks to those of you who sent e-mails. I'll also be adding a series of adverts to the website for Television Shows that Joan has appeared in/guest starred in.

Visitors to the site will know there is already a page dedicated to all the Dynasty adverts from US TV Guides that I have collected over the years.

NEW - Film Adverts

Recently while sorting through my collection, I came across this film advert for Rally Round The Flag Boys and thought it should be added to the site. These adverts appeared in magazines of the 1950's to 1980's including Films in Review, Photoplay, Film Review and Picturegoer, which is where I believe this one came from.

I went through some of these old publications and also found a seller on Ebay (thanks Ian!!) who deals in these and have recently purchased from him and will be adding those on the site very soon.
