TV Obscura - Strange Paradise

Never heard of this one until just recently - a 1969 supernatural soap opera, a Canadian knock off of Dark Shadows.  Called Strange Paradise, it is set in the Caribbean, though in a spooky house in the Caribbean, so what's the point.  A man sells his soul to the devil to bring his wife back to life.  It stars thick slice of ham Colin Fox, a man so Canadian he played three different villains in Friday the 13th: The Series.

The series was co-created by Ian Martin, who later recycled elements into CBS Radio Mystery Theater and a couple of gothic romance novels.
