Sam Hall - Former Dark Shadows and One Life to
Live writer Sam Hall died on Friday, September 26. He was 93.

Allison Samuel Hall was born on March 11, 1921, in Carrollton, Ohio, and graduated from Dartmouth and Yale.
A veteran of the World War II Battle of the Bulge, "Sam" was married to actress Grayson Hall in 1952.

Sam was a playwright who had spent several years working on the CBS daytime drama The Brighter Day.
He was not really interested in accepting another TV job but the family had been struggling for a while,
and Sam was considering moving back to Ohio to work at his fatherís rubber gloves factory.
Then Grayson got a short-term acting role on ABC's afternoon soap opera Dark Shadows, which turned into a long-term gig,
and that kept them in New York.

So when creator Dan Curtis said he needed a new writer to replace Malcolm Marmorstein, Sam said he would give it a try.
The series became a cult classic and won the devotion of a loyal fanbase that would continue to follow the characters in novels,
comic books, movies, audio stories, a primetime television revival and more.
Dark Shadows featured the traditional themes of love and family during its five-year run (1966-1971), but mixed
in were werewolves, zombies, man-made monsters, witches, warlocks, time travel, and even a parallel universe.
