Trivia:

In first draft of the script for the film, Night of Dark Shadows (1971), Michael was to play a hippie at the beginning of the film, bringing viewers into the deserted and haunted mansion, "Collinwood", and kicking off a flashback to explain what had happened. In the final version of the script, the hippie was dropped and the film took place without that flashback/framework device. See more »
