David Marshall Grant,
This was a very emotional reunion. It featured stars from the show discussing the shows history. It showed footage, that had never been seen by the general public.
It was really great to see Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and gang all dressed up in their Dallas gear. They showed Southfork as it is today. They also brought several fans together for a "Oil Barrons Ball", where they answered some of the fan's questions.
I must say I was pleasantly surprised to see Victoria Principal join the cast for this reunion. It made it all the more special. It gave the show a very special edge.
It has always been my hope that they would make another Dallas movie. From the way the emotions ran high at this reunion, I would not say it is out of the question, but from a reality stand point...I am not sure it is really in the cards. We may have to settle for this reunion as the last time we see the gang together like this.
Unfortunately the apple cart was turned over, when news previews released the fact that Howard Keel (Clayton Farlow) passed away from colon cancer. He was a great actor, singer, and much more. He will truly missed. It was very sad that on the very day Dallas was honored, one of the greats from the show passed on.
In closing, I have to tip my 10 gallon hat at cast and crew of Dallas. All I can say is..."It felt great to be back on Southfork again!!"
