There once was a sailor
His ship got caught in a gale
With the wind coming hard he went over the rail
But he swam through the water
And he walked through the rain
Hitched a schooner back home

He had to see her again

Cause love is deep like the ocean
and love is big like the sea
And it always has been and it always will be
Sweet Daphne

When he came from the sea

While a great beginning, the audience wasn't buying it. The series main attraction was Joan Bennett, a popular movie star from the 30's and 40's. She played the mistress of Collinwood, widowed Elizabeth Collins Stoddard.

Curtis intially tried to stay away from supernatural occurences, at least until the ghost of Josette was introduced. The second supernatural character was Laura Collins, the immortal phoenix. Following the Laura Collins storyline, the series introduced the third supernatural character, the character that changed the show forever. Barnabas Collins.
