Bits 'n' Pieces: A smidgen of "Dallas" and "Dynasty"

Charlene Tilton in panto

"Poison Dwarf"? Yes, we've heard it before, but c'mon, that's a little strong, don'tcha think? Our own Charlene Tilton, lovely little Lucy of "Dallas," joins a pantomime show at the Kings Theatre in Southsea, U.K. The show begins December 10, as reported by The Portsmouth News. But that's not all -- Tilton is also appearing at the Las Vegas BikeFest next month. She'll be appearing at the Branscombe Richmond and the Renegade All Stars concert at the Fiesta Rancho Hotel on Friday, October 3. Check the BikeFest's site for details.

Vote "Dallas" for the Emmy broadcast

The folks behind the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards broadcast, coming up this Sunday, want to know what you think is TV's most memorable moment. Are we at all surprised that the moment J.R. gets shot on "Dallas" is among the offerings, since the moment when his shooter is revealed in the following season still rates so high in viewership? Run, don't walk, to the ABC's Emmy Awards page to cast your vote. And be warned ... among the other choices is the very tempting moment when Joan Collins' character gets iced in that landmark vintage "Star Trek" episode "City on the Edge of Forever." Then there's the gut-kicking moment when Pa has to tell Mary she's going blind on "Little House on the Prairie." Geesh ... just drag us behind a pickup truck, why don't ya?????

"Dynasty" assistance, pleeeez

Soap causes wrinkles? Gosh, if we'd only known! At least so says Margaret Long, executive assistant for Aaron Spelling during his "Dynasty" years. The Glen St. Mary, Fla., Home Town Journal pays tribute.
