Connections between "Falcon Crest" and Other Productions
 
(revised 05/02/2022)
 
 
 
 
Many props from "Falcon Crest" were reused in other productions, which is a usual process in the entertainment industry because not everything is bought specifically for a production. Below are a few striking examples of pieces of furniture and other items for set dressing that were prominently reused in other shows or came from other shows and were reused on "Falcon Crest".
 
 
 
 
Armchair
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion;
seasons 6 through 9):
 
 
After the earthquake, the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion was partly refurnished. In seasons 6 and 7, there were two elegant wooden Empire style armchairs in brown lacquer and — at the partly ebonized armrests — with decorative brass elements in the living room; the backrest and seat cushion were upholstered in a fabric with broad stripes in slightly different bright cream tones. Screen grab 1 from # 129 shows one of these chairs.
When the Victorian Mansion was rebuilt after the fire in season 8, these two armchairs became the new guest chairs in Angela's study (as depicted on screen capture 2 from # 205), replacing the previous two Louis XVI style armchairs. For that purpose, the Empire style armchairs were re-upholstered in a more elaborate cream colored fabric with gold and blue stripes as well as yellow, pink and red ornaments to match Angela's re-upholstered office chair (one of the former guest chairs in the study).
These armchairs are approximately 36" high.
 

One of these Empire armchairs made its way to season 12 of LORIMAR's "Knots Landing" where it was used to furnish Marco Conti's office in Rome / Italy in the episode "What if?" (# 281 <12.05>; original U.S. airdate: 10/25/1990, CBS).

Shortly after, both of these chairs were used in seasons 12 through 14 of the same show in the entryway of Claudia Whittaker's house in the cul-de-sac; the second screen grab from "Knots Landing" is from "In the Dog House" (# 293 <12.17>; original U.S. airdate: 02/14/1991, CBS).
These props became assets of WARNER BROS. after buying out LORIMAR in 1989. However, their fate remains a mystery since they are no longer in the possession of their prop department.
 
 
 
 
Armchair
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Foyer;
# 130 through 133):
 
 
After the earthquake, the foyer of the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion (here a screen grab from # 132) was temporarily furnished with an elegant wooden Empire style armchair in black lacquer and — at the armrests — with decorative silver lacquered dolphin details; the backrest and seat cushion are upholstered in gray fabric with narrow white stripes. The armchair is approximately 36" high.
 
LORIMAR later dressed the bedroom in Paige Matheson's condo in seasons 11 through 14 of "Knots Landing" with this chair; the screen capture is an example from "My Love Always" (# 273 <11.26>; original U.S. airdate: 04/26/1990, CBS).
This prop became owned by WARNER BROS. after buying out LORIMAR in 1989. The armchair is still available from their prop department.
 
 
 
 
Armchairs
(Del Oro Spa & Country Club – Historic Club House – Lobby;
seasons 6 and 7):
 
 
The main lobby in the historic club house at the Del Oro was furnished with narrow pastel lilac armchairs with straight armrests in season 6 and early season 7. When the dimensions of the Del Oro lobby set were changed in # 158 for the remainder of season 7 (compare our Behind the Scenes section for more details), there was no longer enough room for these armchairs, and LORIMAR used them elsewhere.
 

  • "Dallas":
     
    The production company brought one of them over to the set of "Dallas" to furnish J.R. Ewing's condo at the end of season 10 (original count) / 11 (DVD count). The screen capture is a comparison shot from "Last of the Good Guys" (# 277 <10.26 – original count> / <11.26 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 04/08/1988, CBS).
     
     
  • "Knots Landing":
     

    Almost at the same time, they used most of these armchairs on "Knots Landing" to dress the newly remodeled main lobby of Lotus Point in season 9 with them; the screen grab is an example from the episode "Just Desserts" (# 216 <9.26>; original U.S. airdate: 04/14/1988, CBS).

 
 
 
Bamboo Armchairs
(Gioberti House – Veranda; seasons 2 through 4):
 
 
Between seasons 2 and 4, the Gioberti House veranda was equipped with several bamboo armchairs — very prominently featured during the baby shower for Melissa and Lance in # 020. One of them gained public awareness from the official cast group photo of season 2 because JANE WYMAN is sitting in it. These LORIMAR owned props were used in other productions before and after "Falcon Crest".
 
  • "Flamingo Road":
     
    Prior to "Falcon Crest", LORIMAR used this set of armchairs in season 2 of "Flamingo Road" on Michael Tyrone's (DAVID SELBY) terrace — the filming location was Arden Villa in Pasadena, CA, which was used on "Falcon Crest" as Riebmann's house in Buenos Aires / Argentina, Norton Crane's New York home and Michael and Savanna Sharpe's mansion. The screen grab from "Flamingo Road" is from "The Stranger" (# 20 <2.05>; original U.S. airdate: 12/08/1981, NBC).
     
     
  • "Knots Landing":
     

    In season 4 of LORIMAR's "Knots Landing", one of the armchairs was used to dress Ciji Dunne's apartment; the screen capture is from "Abby's Choice" (# 064 <4.11>; original U.S. airdate: 12/16/1982, CBS).

 
 
 
 
Bed
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion – Angela Channing's Bedroom; # 002 and 005):
 
 

The bed in Angela's bedroom in the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion in season 1 was not a LORIMAR owned prop, but rented from THE BURBANK STUDIOS (nowadays WARNER BROS. STUDIOS).

 
After "Falcon Crest", this antique bed was used in season 6 of the original "Dynasty" series in the episode "The Aftermath" (# 116 <6.01>; original U.S. airdate: 09/25/1985, ABC) in Luke Fuller's guest bedroom in King Galen's Summer Palace in the fictional country of Moldavia.
"Dynasty" was produced by THE OIL COMPANY, show-specific production entity controlled by AARON SPELLING. Its first two seasons were filmed at 20TH CENTURY FOX STUDIOS (nowadays 20TH CENTURY STUDIOS) in Culver City, CA. After that, the show moved to WARNER HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS in West Hollywood, CA (historically known as SAMUEL GOLDWYN STUDIO and later PICKFORD - FAIRBANKS STUDIOS, nowadays known as THE LOT). WARNER BROS. owned that studio during between 1980 and 1999. As a very small facility, WARNER HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS did not have a prop department of their own. While most of the props used on "Dynasty" were owned by THE OIL COMPANY or rented from elsewhere, some props were rented by AARON SPELLING from the studio's affiliate, the prop department on WARNER's main lot in Burbank, CA, THE BURBANK STUDIOS at that time (nowadays WARNER BROS. STUDIOS). This is how said bed came to the set of "Dynasty" during location filming at HAROLD LLOYD's Greenacres Estate in Beverly Hills, CA, which posed as the Moldavian King's Summer Palace.
 
 
 
 
Bed
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion – Julia Cumson's Bedroom; # 026 /
Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion – Emma Channing's Bedroom; # 063 /
Agretti Residence – Master Bedroom; seasons 4 and 5):
 
 
In # 026 only, Julia's bedroom in the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion was equipped with a set of white furniture including a bed with a curved headboard that contained a distinct carving in the center. The same furniture was used in Emma's bedroom in the Mansion in # 063 only after she no longer used the tower studio.
In season 4 and at the beginning of season 5 (until the refurnishing in # 105), the same furniture was used to dress Melissa and Cole's bedroom in the Agretti Residence.
 

After "Falcon Crest", LORIMAR used this bed in "Knots Landing" in the guest bedroom of the MacKenzies' home in the final episode "Just Like Old Times — Part II" (# 344 <14.19>; original U.S. airdate: 05/13/1993, CBS).

 
 
 
 
Bed
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Rooftop Studio, Emma Channing's Bedroom;
seasons 1 and 2):
 
 

The bed in Emma's rooftop studio in the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion from seasons 1 and 2 was not a LORIMAR owned prop, but rented from THE BURBANK STUDIOS (nowadays WARNER BROS. STUDIOS).

 

This bed was previously used on other shows filmed at THE BURBANK STUDIOS, in particular two episodes of "Police Woman":
"Once a Snitch" (# 57 <3.12>; original U.S. airdate: 01/04/1977, NBC);

and "Silky Chamberlain" (# 66 <3.21>; original U.S. airdate: 03/08/1977, NBC; screen capture 2).
That series was produced by COLUMBIA PICTURES TELEVISION. At the time, COLUMBIA PICTURES shared an interest in THE BURBANK STUDIOS.

 
 
 
 
Bed
(Gioberti House – Master Bedroom;
seasons 4 through 7):
 
 
Between seasons 4 and 7, there was a white metal framed bed with decorative elements in the form of grapevines in Chase and Maggie's master bedroom at the Gioberti House. The screen capture is an example from # 070 <4.02>.
This LORIMAR owned prop was used in other productions before and after "Falcon Crest".
 
  • "Flamingo Road":
     

    It was previously featured on LORIMAR's "Flamingo Road" in Sandy Swanson's apartment.
    The screen grab is an example from "Double Exposure" (# 29 <2.14>; original U.S. airdate: 02/23/1982, NBC).

     
     
  • "Hart to Hart":
     
    It was also previously featured on COLUMBIA's "Hart to Hart" in the guest bedroom at a wildlife ranch. This show filmed at THE BURBANK STUDIOS at the time and rented it from LORIMAR.
    The screen grab is from "Hunted Harts" (# 078 <4.11>; original U.S. airdate: 01/04/1983, ABC).
     
     
  • "Dallas":
     

    It was later used multiple times in LORIMAR's "Dallas":
    This first screen capture is an example from "Last of the Good Guys" (# 277 <10.26 – original count> / <11.26 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 04/08/1988, CBS) where it resurfaced as Connie Hall's bed.

    The second screen grab is from a particularly funny use of this bed as a prop in "The Phantom of the Oil Rig" (# 308 <12.01 – original count> / <13.01 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 09/22/1989, CBS). That episode resumed the storyline about Sue Ellen Ewing's autobiographical movie, and the filming location of the studio where that movie was shot was the actual studio where "Dallas" was filmed — LORIMAR STUDIOS (previously MGM STUDIOS, nowadays SONY PICTURES STUDIOS) in Culver City, CA. The bed's headboard was carried between the sound stages on 5th Avenue on the studio lot.
  •  
     
  • "Knots Landing":
     

    In LORIMAR's "Knots Landing", it was first used in Paige Matheson and Johnny Rourke's hotel room in Santa Tecla; the screen grab is from "Mother Knows Best" (# 214 <9.24>; original U.S. airdate: 03/31/1988, CBS).

    It was later reused as Michael and Linda Fairgate's bed; the screen grab is an example taken from "Bad Dog" (# 295 <12.19>; original U.S. airdate: 02/28/1991, CBS).

 
 
 
Bed
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Guest Bedroom; # 001 /
Gioberti House Guest Bedroom; # 012):
 
 

The bed in the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion guest bedroom in which Chase and Maggie slept in # 001 and the bed in the Gioberti House guest bedroom in which Jacqueline slept is the same prop; compare # 012 in our Behind the Scenes section.

 
This bed was not a LORIMAR owned prop, but rented from THE BURBANK STUDIOS (nowadays WARNER BROS. STUDIOS). After being featured on "Falcon Crest", it was used on other shows filmed at THE BURBANK STUDIOS, in particular in "Hart's Desire", an episode of "Hart to Hart" (# 073 <4.06>; original U.S. airdate: 11/16/1982, ABC). That series was produced by COLUMBIA PICTURES TELEVISION. At the time, COLUMBIA PICTURES shared an interest in THE BURBANK STUDIOS.
 
 
 
 
Bed, Sideboard and Nightstand
(Agretti Residence – Master Bedroom;
seasons 6 and 7):
 
 

After the earthquake, Melissa's bedroom was refurnished with a set of bright contemporary oak wood pieces, including a bed, two nightstands, an armoire and a sideboard.

 
Some of the pieces from that set resurfaced later on LORIMAR's "Knots Landing":
In season 12, the nightstands and the sideboard were used in Claudia and Kate Whittaker's hotel room. Screen grab 1 of the sideboard is from "You Can Call Me Nick" (# 282 <12.06>; original U.S. airdate: 11/01/1990, CBS). Screen capture 2 of one of the nightstands is from "God Will" (# 279 <12.03>; original U.S. airdate: 09/27/1990, CBS).

In season 13, the bed and one of the nightstands resurfaced in Professor Truwald's bedroom in "And the Walls Come Tumbling Down" (# 315 <13.12>; original U.S. airdate: 01/02/1992, CBS).

Later, the bed and the nightstands were used to refurnish the guest bedroom in the MacKenzies' home. The screen grab is from "Do You Love Me?" (# 324 <13.21>; original U.S. airdate: 04/02/1992, CBS).

Only the bed finally resurfaced in the guest bedroom of Claudia Whittaker's house on Seaview Circle in "Hints and Evasions" (# 340 <14.15>; original U.S. airdate: 02/25/1993, CBS).
These props became assets of WARNER BROS. after buying out LORIMAR in 1989. However, their fate remains a mystery since they are no longer in the possession of their prop department.
 
 
 
 
Bedding
(Richard Channing's 3rd House, Tuscany Valley – Master Bedroom;
season 7):
 
 

In season 7, silver / burgundy satin bedding was sometimes used in the master bedroom of Richard's third house in the Tuscany Valley. The duvet was reversible with one side in the identical color scheme of the pillowcase and the other side in full silver color.

 

This LORIMAR owned bedding was previously used in Abby and Gary Ewing's hotel suite at the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, CA in "Until Parted by Death" (# 139 <7.09>; original U.S. airdate: 11/21/1985, CBS) of "Knots Landing".

 
 
 
 
Chandeliers
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Living Room, Foyer and Dining Room;
seasons 1 and 2):
 
 
The three identical crystal glass chandeliers in the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion foyer, dining room and living room in seasons 1 and 2 were not LORIMAR owned props. They were rented from THE BURBANK STUDIOS (nowadays WARNER BROS. STUDIOS), which was a joint venture of WARNER BROS. and COLUMBIA PICTURES at the time.
These chandeliers were utilized in other productions filmed at the same studio, too.
 
  • "Police Woman":
     

    The chandeliers were previously used in two episodes of this crime drama:
    In "Tennis Bum" (# 53 <3.08>; original U.S. airdate: 11/30/1976, NBC);

    and "Blind Terror" (# 77 <4.10>; original U.S. airdate: 01/04/1978, NBC).

  •  
     
  • "Hotel":
     
    After "Falcon Crest", the chandeliers were used for "Hotel", AARON SPELLING's new series premièring in the 1983-84 season, which — after filming the pilot at WARNER HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS (nowadays THE LOT) and on location in San Francisco — resumed regular production at THE BURBANK STUDIOS (now WARNER BROS. STUDIOS). On "Hotel", they were first utilized in the ballroom of the St. Gregory Hotel, but with the lowest crystal glass elements removed; the screen capture is from "Tomorrows" ("# 014 <1.14>; original U.S. airdate: 01/11/1984, ABC). Depending on the need for each scene in season 2 of "Hotel", the chandeliers were used both in The Carlyle Room Restaurant (in the same way) and in the redressed ballroom set (the lowest crystal glass elements now back in place).
 
 
 
Coat of Arms
(Stavros Villa, Kallos / Greece; # 143):
 
 

The coat of arms hanging on the wall in the den in Peter Stavros' villa on Kallos / Greece in # 143 was a LORIMAR owned prop.

 

It was used later in the TV lounge at Greg Sumner's ranch during the video presentation of Laura's farewell messages in "Noises Everywhere — Part II" (# 201 <9.11>; original U.S. airdate: 12/10/1987, CBS) of "Knots Landing".

 
 
 
 
Coffee Table
(Richard Channing's 3rd House, Tuscany Valley – Bedroom Suite, Sitting Room;
seasons 5 through 7):
 
 

In the sitting room of Richard's bedroom suite in his third house in the Tuscany Valley where he lived from seasons 5 through 7, there was a low round coffee table made of Carrara marble near the couch. After he and Maggie moved to their ranch, the table disappeared from "Falcon Crest".

 
It became available for LORIMAR's "Knots Landing". It became part of the furniture of Greg Sumner's ranch when the living room was refurnished in season 10 after Abby moved in; it was kept there until the show's finale; the screen grab is an example from "Poor Jill" (# 235 <10.16>; original U.S. airdate: 02/23/1989, CBS).
 
 
 
 
Curio Cabinet
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Living Room;
season 8):
 
 

After the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion was rebuilt in season 8, the living room was refurnished with two matching light colored curio cabinets, which were placed on either side of the double doors. Screen grab 1 from # 205 shows one of these wood / glass cabinets. They disappeared after season 8.

 

One of these cabinets made its way to season 12 of LORIMAR's "Knots Landing" where it was used in Nick Schillace (a.k.a. Dimitri Pappas) and Anne Matheson's hotel suite in "Call Me Dimitri" (# 294 <12.18>; original U.S. airdate: 02/21/1991, CBS).

 
 
 
 
Desk
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Study;
season 1):
 
 
 
For details about Angela's original antique desk in the study of the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion (season 1 only), check the entry in # 001 <1.01> in our Behind the Scenes section. It was not a LORIMAR owned prop, but rented from THE BURBANK STUDIOS (nowadays WARNER BROS. STUDIOS), which was a joint venture of WARNER BROS. and COLUMBIA PICTURES at the time. It is still available from the WARNER BROS. prop department to this day.
Before and after "Falcon Crest", the desk owned by TBS was used in various other productions shot on the lot of THE BURBANK STUDIOS (nowadays WARNER BROS. STUDIOS); the following list is in chronological order:
 
  • "Police Woman":
     

    This desk was previously used in the episode "Father to the Man" (# 56 <3.11>; original U.S. airdate: 12/21/1976, NBC), which was filmed at THE BURBANK STUDIOS, too.

  •  
     
  • "Hart to Hart":
     

    After "Falcon Crest", the desk resurfaced in "Too Close to Hart" (# 088 <4.21>; original U.S. airdate: 05/03/1983, ABC). That series also filmed at THE BURBANK STUDIOS at the time.

 
 
 
Desk
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Study;
seasons 2 through 9):
 
 
For details about Angela's iconic French Louis XV style bureau plat in the study of the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion between seasons 2 through 9, check the entry in # 019 <2.01> in our Behind the Scenes section.
As many other LORIMAR / WARNER BROS. props, the very same desk from "Falcon Crest" can be rented from WARNER BROS. by other production companies nowadays. It was used on many other shows:
 
  • "Knots Landing":
     

    After "Falcon Crest", LORIMAR furnished Marco Conti's office in Rome / Italy in season 12 of this drama series with the same desk; the episode was entitled "What if?" (# 281 <12.05>; original U.S. airdate: 10/25/1990, CBS).

  •  
     
  • "Dallas":
     

    Also after "Falcon Crest", LORIMAR used the exact same desk in Carter McKay's Las Vegas office in one of J.R.'s dream scenes in the "Dallas" series finale entitled "Conundrum" (# 356 <13.22 – original count> / <14.22 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 05/03/1991, CBS).

  •  
     
  • "ER":
     
    In "Ground Zero" of "ER" (# 075 <4.06>; original U.S. airdate: 11/06/1997, NBC), the desk was used in the study of Millicent Carter's mansion.
    Note that the same episode of the medical drama also used the cabinets from the Victorian Mansion foyer (see below).
  •  
     
  • UNIVERSAL Productions (same model):
     
    The same desk model (but not the very same desk from LORIMAR's prop warehouse) had appeared on TV in a number of UNIVERSAL productions before, including the following shows:
    The three screen captures are just examples of scenes from UNIVERSAL productions that made use of this type of desk.
    Among other shows, the UNIVERSAL owned desk was featured in:
     
    • "Columbo": three episodes — screen capture 1, for instance

    • "Kojak": one episode

    • "The Bionic Woman": three episodes — screen capture 2, for instance

    • "The Incredible Hulk": two episodes

    • "Knight Rider" (classic series): one episode

    • "Chicago Justice": one episode — screen capture 3, for instance

 
 
Desk
(Sharpe Capital Ventures — Michael Sharpe's Secretary;
season 9):
 
 

The secretary's desk in the anteroom to Sharpe's office at Sharpe Capital Ventures is a LORIMAR owned prop.
Before "Falcon Crest", it was used in various other productions; the following list is in chronological order:

 
  • "Dallas":

    The desk was previously seen in "Taste of Success" (# 059 <3.05 – original count> / <4.05 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 11/28/1980, CBS). "Dallas" was produced by LORIMAR, too.

  •  
     
  • "Knots Landing":
     

    Also prior to "Falcon Crest", the desk was utilized in season 3 of this LORIMAR production in the office of Richard Avery's boss, Andrew Parkhurst; the screen grab is from "Exposé" (# 049 <3.18>; original U.S. airdate: 04/08/1982, CBS).

    This show also used the desk in the office of The Bess Ryker Agency; the screen capture is from "Svengali" (# 057 <4.04>; original U.S. airdate: 10/21/1982, CBS).

    Yet again it was featured in this series in "A New Family" (# 069 <4.16>; original U.S. airdate: 02/03/1983, CBS) as the desk of Abby Cunningham's lawyer, Jim Westmont.

  •  
     
  • "Paper Dolls":
     
    Also prior to "Falcon Crest", the desk was utilized in Wesley Harper's office at Harper WorldWide. The screen grab is from # 03 (original U.S. airdate: 10/09/1984, ABC).
    The short-lived "Paper Dolls" series, which only ran for one season, was produced by MGM TELEVISION and filmed at what was then MGM STUDIOS (nowadays SONY PICTURES STUDIOS) in Culver City, CA where LORIMAR, at the same time, filmed "Dallas" and "Knots Landing" among other shows. Besides the fact that MGM borrowed "Knots Landing's" Fairgate / MacKenzie home set from LORIMAR for a few scenes in "Paper Dolls", MGM also rented this desk from LORIMAR's prop department, which was stationed on the MGM lot at that time.
 
 
 
Desk
(Smith, Plenn & Hogstedt; # 049 /
Tuscany Valley Hospital; season 3 /
De Bercy Land Development – Gustav Riebmann's Office; season 4 /
Agretti Residence – Den; seasons 5 – 7):
 
 
The antique desk that is best remembered from Melissa's den in the Agretti Residence from seasons 5 through 7 (screen grab from # 125) was also used previously in season 3 as a prop in Ms. Smith's office at Smith, Plenn & Hogstedt and in Dr. Michael Ranson's office at the Tuscany Valley Hospital as well as in Gustav Riebmann's office at De Bercy Land Development (compare # 049, 057, 071 and 100 in our Behind the Scenes section).
 

It was also used by LORIMAR in "Knots Landing" in season 5 in Mack MacKenzie's office; the screen capture is from "Witness" (# 088 <5.13>; original U.S. airdate: 12/22/1983, CBS).

 
 
 
 
Dining Room Chairs
(Gioberti House;
season 1):
 
 
The brown dining room chairs in the Gioberti House from season 1 (except in # 002 — compare our Behind the Scenes section for further details) had a striking curved backrest and a carved wooden centerpiece in the upper part of the backrest. These props were not owned by LORIMAR, but rented from THE BURBANK STUDIOS (nowadays WARNER BROS. STUDIOS).
Before and after "Falcon Crest", the chairs owned by TBS were used in various other productions shot on the lot of THE BURBANK STUDIOS (nowadays WARNER BROS. STUDIOS); the following list is in chronological order:
 
  • "Police Woman":
     

    These chairs were previously used in the episode "Requiem for a Bored Wife" (# 10 <1.10>; original U.S. airdate: 11/29/1974, NBC) produced by COLUMBIA PICTURES TELEVISION.

  •  
     
  • "Hart to Hart":
     

    After "Falcon Crest", the chairs resurfaced in the episode "Harts on the Run" (# 101 <5.12>; original U.S. airdate: 01/03/1984, ABC). That series also filmed at THE BURBANK STUDIOS at the time.

  •  
     
  • "North and South":
     

    Also after "Falcon Crest", the chairs were used to dress the Main family's mansion at the Mont Royal plantation in "North and South". The screen capture is from Book I – part 1 (original U.S. airdate: 11/03/1985, ABC). That mini-series was produced by WARNER BROS. and filmed at THE BURBANK STUDIOS.

  •  
     
  • "Elvira: Mistress of the Dark":
     
    Also after "Falcon Crest", the chairs were used in "Elvira: Mistress of the Dark" — theatrical release date: 09/30/1988 (USA). This comedy horror movie was filmed partly at THE BURBANK STUDIOS with props rented from their prop house. By the way, DANIEL GREENE (Dwayne Cooley from "Falcon Crest") is the male lead in this movie.
 
 
 
Dining Room Chairs
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion;
seasons 6 and 7):
 
 
Between # 145 and 183, there were two contemporary chairs, upholstered in white fabric, in the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion dining room (screen capture 1 is an example from # 146). One placed at the head of the table and the other one at the foot of the table, they were standing out between the other chairs, which were antique Chippendale seating furniture.
 

LORIMAR later used both of these chairs in season 12 of "Knots Landing" in Anne Matheson and Nick Schillace's apartment; the screen grab is an example from "An American Hero" (# 298 <12.22>; original U.S. airdate: 04/04/1991, CBS).

 
 
 
 
Espresso Maker
(Del Oro Spa & Country Club;
seasons 6 and 8):
 
 
A Belle Époque style brass espresso maker was used at the Del Oro — first in the lobby bar in the Historic Club House in season 6, later at the Spa Restaurant in season 8.
 

It was previously used by LORIMAR as a prop in Richard Avery's restaurant Daniel on "Knots Landing" in the episode "Man in the Middle" (# 061 <4.08>; original U.S. airdate: 11/18/1982, CBS).

 
 
 
 
Guest Armchairs
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Study;
seasons 4 through 6):
 
 
In season 4, Angela's study in the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion was furnished with two identical guest armchairs around a side table near the wall where, later in season 5, the double pocket doors to the sun room would be installed. One of them is visible on the first screen grab from # 081. After the pocket doors to the sun room were installed, only one of the chairs remained in the study (compare the second screen capture from # 121) through season 6.
Each of these matching two antique Louis XVI armchairs has open armrests, fluted legs and a carved round back with a floral crest. The chairs are made from maple, which was whitewashed. The measurements of each chair are 36" (height) x 24" (width) x 19" (depth).
These LORIMAR owned props went to WARNER BROS. as their successor-in-interest after the merger in 1989. Both of these armchairs are still in use at the WARNER BROS. prop department. During LORIMAR's tenure, the armchairs' classic fabric was cream colored with dark blue stripes. A few years ago, WARNER BROS. re-upholstered the chairs in a modern fabric with cream, gold and purple tones.
 
After "Falcon Crest", both of these armchairs (still in their earlier fabric) were used in LORIMAR's "Knots Landing" in the guest bedroom at the MacKenzie house. The screen capture is from the episode "Cabin Fever" (# 229 <10.10>; original U.S. airdate: 01/12/1989, CBS); only one of these chairs was visible in that room while Paige Matheson stayed there.

In season 13, the second chair was visible also while Claudia Whittaker stayed in that guest bedroom; the screen grab is from "Home Again, Home Again" (# 308 <13.05>; original U.S. airdate: 10/31/1991, CBS).

 
 
 
 
Highboy
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion – Angela Channing's Bedroom;
season 9):
 
 
The antique bonnet-top highboy with many drawers on the wall between the door and the fireplace in Angela's bedroom in the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion in season 9 is an elaborate Queen Anne style piece of furniture.
This prop owned by LORIMAR was featured in other productions; the following list is in chronological order:
 
  • "Dallas":
     

    Before "Falcon Crest", LORIMAR used this highboy in Marilee Stone's bedroom in "The Phoenix" (# 093 <4.16 – original count> / <5.16 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 01/29/1982, CBS).

  •  
     
  • "Hart to Hart":
     
    Also before "Falcon Crest", that piece of furniture appeared in "Harts on Campus" (# 071 <4.04>; original U.S. airdate: 10/26/1982, ABC). This series was filmed at THE BURBANK STUDIOS (now WARNER BROS. STUDIOS) where LORIMAR had many offices and filmed "Falcon Crest" at the time. COLUMBIA PICTURES TELEVISION rented this prop from LORIMAR.
 
 
 
Office Chair
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Study;
seasons 2 through 7):
 
 

For details about Angela's iconic French Louis XVI style office chair in the study of the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion between seasons 2 through 7, check the entry in # 019 <2.01> in our Behind the Scenes section.

 
This chair reappeared in the "Dallas" episode "Paradise Lost" (# 327 <12.20 – original count> / <13.20 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 03/09/1990, CBS) in the interior set of a fur store.
This LORIMAR owned prop became property of WARNER BROS. when the companies merged and is still owned by WARNER BROS. to this day. As many other WARNER BROS. props, the chair can be rented by other production companies.
 
 
 
 
Office Chair
(The New San Francisco Globe – Richard Channing's Executive Office;
season 3):
 
 
The elegant swivel armchair made of wood and black leather in Richard's office in The New San Francisco Globe in season 3 was a prop owned by THE BURBANK STUDIOS, a joint venture between WARNER BROS. and COLUMBIA PICTURES in those days. While "Falcon Crest" was shot there, the prop masters did not only dress the set with props owned by LORIMAR, but also ones that came from THE BURBANK STUDIOS prop warehouse.
When "Falcon Crest" moved from THE BURBANK STUDIOS to the CBS STUDIO CENTER in Studio City, CA during the hiatus between seasons 3 and 4 in order to shoot the remainder of the series there, the armchair had to be returned to the prop house at THE BURBANK STUDIOS. For season 4, Richard's office was redressed with a different antique armchair owned by LORIMAR.
Before and after "Falcon Crest", the armchair owned by TBS was used in various other productions shot on the lot of THE BURBANK STUDIOS (nowadays WARNER BROS. STUDIOS); the following list is in chronological order:

    "Mike Hammer" was also a COLUMBIA PICTURES TELEVISION production.

     
     
  • "T.J. Hooker":
     

    The armchair was also reused on "T.J. Hooker", which was also a COLUMBIA PICTURES TELEVISION production:
    First, it was featured in a priest's office in "The Confession" (# 058 <4.09>; original U.S. airdate: 12/15/1984, ABC).

    Later, it was used in another office in "The Night Ripper" (# 080 <5.08>; original U.S. airdate: 01/29/1986, CBS).

     
     
  • "Crazy Like a Fox":
     

    The armchair was also used in an office in "Suitable for Framing" (# 12 <1.12>; original U.S. airdate: 03/31/1985, CBS).

  • Abstract with Antelopes
    (Wilder Advertising – Cassandra Wilder's Office; seasons 4 and 5 /
    Del Oro Spa & Country Club – Hallway to Suite 333; season 6 /
    Kathryn Anderson's apartment; # 176):
     
    A colorful abstract with antelopes was used for different purposes: it was hanging in Cassandra Wilder's office at Wilder Advertising in seasons 4 and 5; as visible in # 133, it was later hanging across from the door to Kit's suite (number 333) in the hallway of the Del Oro Spa & Country Club; finally, it resurfaced in Kathryn Anderson's apartment in the Golden Park West building in San Francisco, as visible in # 176.
     

    The very same picture, still brass-framed, was later reused on "Knots Landing" in the hallway outside Jeff Cameron's apartment. The screen grab is from "The One to Blame" (# 272 <11.25>; original U.S. airdate: 04/05/1990, CBS).

  •  
     
  • Abstract with Horses
    (KRDC – Richard Channing's Office; seasons 4 and 5 /

    LORIMAR had previously used the same poster on "Knots Landing" in the living room of Kenny and Ginger Ward's home at 16961 Seaview Circle. The screen capture is from "To Have and to Hold" (# 068 <4.15>; original U.S. airdate: 01/21/1983, CBS; screen capture 2).

  •  
     
  • Landscape Abstracts / Collages
    (Tuscany Valley (Memorial) Hospital; seasons 2 and 3 /

    During season 3, two pictures appeared on different walls in the Tuscany Valley Hospital in # 041 <3.01>, 059 <3.19> and 063 <3.23>. One of them (marked red) was previously used at the Tuscany Valley Memorial Hospital in season 2 (# 033 <2.15>) and resurfaced later at the Farrell County Adoption Agency in # 074 <4.06>. The other picture (marked yellow) was later used in the accounting office in # 053 <3.13>. Details are listed in the respective episodes in our Behind the Scenes section.
     
    LORIMAR had previously used the same pictures to dress Cliff Barnes' office at Wentworth Tool and Die in season 4 (original count) / 5 (DVD count) of "Dallas". The first screen capture from "Dallas" is a comparison shot of the picture marked red in Chase's room from a "Dallas" scene in "Acceptance" (# 102 <4.25 – original count> / <5.25 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 04/02/1982, CBS).

    (Falcon Crest Winery Building; seasons 1 and 2 /
    The New San Francisco Globe – Hallway; # 057 /
    California State Hospital for the Crimially Insane; # 059 /
    KRDC; season 4):
     
    A still life was used in various places: During seasons 1 and 2, in the Falcon Crest Winery Building in the hallway outside Julia's enology lab (best visible in # 004 <1.04> for the first time); it later resurfaced in a hallway of the New Globe (# 057 <3.17>) and in the California Hospital for the Criminally Insane (# 059 <3.19>) as well as in the hallway to Richard's KRDC office during season 4 (first visible in # 082 <4.14>). Details are listed in the respective episodes in our Behind the Scenes section.
     

    This prop was also used by LORIMAR in season 2 of "Knots Landing". It was hanging in Abby Cunningham's living room at 16969 Seaview Circle; the screen grab is an example from "China Dolls" (# 052 <3.21>; original U.S. airdate: 04/29/1982, CBS).

    This screen grab is an example from "Living Dangerously" (# 053 <3.22>; original U.S. airdate: 05/06/1982, CBS) when it was hanging in a hotel suite.

    Later, it was on the wall in Detective Janet Baines' police office in "Marital Privilege" (# 079 <5.04>; original U.S. airdate: 10/20/1983, CBS).

  •  
     
  • "Still Life, Taj Hotel, Bombay" by DAVID HOCKNEY
    (Queen of the Valley Hospital; # 142):
     

    An art print of this famous drawing was hanging in the hallway to Dr. Weather's office at the QVH; details are listed in # 142 <6.15> of our Behind the Scenes section.

    LORIMAR later used the same art print in even the very same frame in season 13 of "Knots Landing" in Karen MacKenzie's dressing room at the KBLA TV station; the screen capture is from "I, Claudia" (# 307 <13.07>; original U.S. airdate: 10/03/1991, CBS).

  • Sutro Baths
    (The New San Francisco Globe – Anteroom to the Executive Office;
    seasons 2 through 6):
     

    During seasons 2 through 6, a reproduction of a historic lithographic print of the Sutro Baths in San Francisco was hanging in the anteroom to the New Globe executive office; details are listed in # 020 <2.02> of our Behind the Scenes section.

     
    LORIMAR had previously used the same picture in a different frame to decorate Cliff Barnes' office at Wentworth Tool and Die in season 4 (original count) / 5 (DVD count) of "Dallas". The screen grab is an example from "Acceptance" (# 102 <4.25 – original count> / <5.25 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 04/02/1982, CBS).
  •  
     
  • "Two Sisters" by PIERRE-AUGUSTE RENOIR
    (Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Dining Room;
    seasons 2 through 5):
     

    During seasons 2 through 5, this famous painting was hanging in the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion dining room; details are listed in # 022 <2.04> of our Behind the Scenes section.

     
    LORIMAR later used the same picture in even the very same frame for two purposes:
    They decorated the living room in Amanda Michael's house in season 11 of "Knots Landing" with it; the screen grab is an example from the episode entitled "Twice Victim" (# 258 <11.11>; original U.S. airdate: 12/14/1989, CBS).

    Later in this season, they used it in the hotel suite where the rehearsal dinner for Paige Matheson and Tom Ryan's wedding was held in "Let's Get Married" (# 276 <11.29>; original U.S. airdate: 05/17/1990, CBS).

 
 
 
Restaurant Chairs
(Del Oro Spa & Country Club – Spa Restaurant;
seasons 8 and 9):
 
 

The chairs at the Del Oro from seasons 8 and 9 (some with, some without armrests) were upholstered with a fabric matching the wall décor in the interior set of the Spa Restaurant.

 
  • "Dallas":
     
    They resurfaced later on "Dallas" in the episode entitled "Lock, Stock and Jock" (# 344 <13.10 – original count> / 14.10 ; original U.S. airdate: 01/11/1991, CBS) at the Les Saisons restaurant. For this scene, these LORIMAR owned chairs — at that time already "inherited" by WARNER BROS. — were placed among other props in the foyer of the former Producers Building at LORIMAR STUDIOS (previously MGM STUDIOS; now Jimmy Stewart Building at SONY PICTURES STUDIOS) in Culver City, CA.
     
     
  • "Knots Landing":
     

    Although hard to recognize, two of these chairs were later used on "Knots Landing" to furnish the marina restaurant where Frank Williams and Charlotte Anderson went on their first date in "Always on Your Side" (# 292 <12.16>; original U.S. airdate: 02/07/1991, CBS).

 
 
 
Shelf Unit
(2055 Hilltop Road, Tuscany Valley – Bedroom;
season 4):
 
 

The white circular shelf unit in Richard's bedroom in his residence on Hilltop Road was reused on other LORIMAR shows as well.

 
  • "Knots Landing":
     

    Shortly after filming "Falcon Crest", it resurfaced in season 6 of "Knots Landing" at a restaurant; the screen capture is from "One Day in a Row" (# 128 <6.28>; original U.S. airdate: 05/09/1985, CBS).

     
     
  • "Dallas":
     

    Later, LORIMAR used it towards the end of season 10 (original count) / 11 (DVD count) of "Dallas" in J.R. Ewing's condo. The screen grab is a comparison shot from "Last of the Good Guys" (# 277 <10.26 – original count> / <11.26 – DVD count>; original U.S. airdate: 04/08/1988, CBS).

 
 
 
Sideboard
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Living Room;
seasons 6 through 7 and 9):
 
 
For the two Empire style sideboards, which were used to refurnish the living room of the Victorian Mansion after the earthquake until the end of season 7 and which later reappeared there in season 9, compare # 130 in our Behind the Scenes section.
 
After "Falcon Crest", one of these Empire sideboards made its way to season 12 of LORIMAR's "Knots Landing" where it was used in Marco Conti's office in Rome / Italy in the episode "What if?" (# 281 <12.05>; original U.S. airdate: 10/25/1990, CBS) — although it is pretty difficult to see.
The two matching sideboards are still available for other productions from the WARNER BROS. property department since the studio "inherited" them from LORIMAR.
 
 
 
 
Side Cabinets
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Foyer;
seasons 2 through 6):
 
 
From season 2 through early season 6 (# 129) of "Falcon Crest", the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion foyer was furnished with two small, very elegant matching serpentine cabinets (standing on either side of the study's pocket doors), one of which you can see in the screen grab from "Inconceivable Affairs" (# 108 <5.10>; original U.S. airdate: 12/06/1985, CBS). They were antique walnut and cherry veneer pieces of furniture in French Louis XV style (built during the Napoleon III era though) with elaborate floral intarsia, figural bronze metal mounts and a red marble top. These unique props had been acquired by LORIMAR to dress the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion when the set was refurnished and refurbished for season 2 to give it a more elegant look.
These side cabinets were later reused on other LORIMAR / WARNER BROS. shows. When LORIMAR was bought out by WARNER BROS. in 1989, all their assets, including these small cabinets, became property of WARNER BROS.
 
  • "Knots Landing":
     
    In seasons 8 and 9 of LORIMAR's "Knots Landing", the cabinets were used to dress the set of Greg Sumner's ranch — both of them in the living room to either side of the archway; one of them was also used in the ranch's master bedroom (it had to be taken from one interior set to the other by the craft department as needed). The "Knots Landing" screen capture is just an example from "Noises Everywhere — Part II" (# 201 <9.11>; original U.S. airdate: 12/10/1987, CBS).
  •  
     
  • "A Walton Wedding":
     

    In the fifth reunion movie of "The Waltons" entitled "A Walton Wedding" (original U.S. airdate: 02/12/1995, CBS), the cabinets were used in the living room of Janet's aunt Flo's residence.

  •  
     
  • "ER":
     
    In "Ground Zero" of "ER" (# 075 <4.06>; original U.S. airdate: 11/06/1997, NBC), the cabinets were used near the bar in Millicent Carter's mansion.
    Note that the same episode of the medical drama also used Angela's desk (see above).
  •  
     
  • "Gilmore Girls":
     
    The same props later resurfaced on "Gilmore Girls" in the foyer of Emily and Richard Gilmore's mansion throughout the whole series. The "Gilmore Girls" screen grab is just an example taken from "Eight o'Clock at the Oasis" (# 048 <3.05>; original U.S. airdate: 10/22/2002, The WB).
 
 
 
Side Table
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Living Room;
seasons 6 through 9):
 
 
After the earthquake, the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion was partly refurnished. In particular, the living room was equipped with some elegant Empire style furniture. For details, compare # 130 in the Behind the Scenes section as well as the above note about the Empire style sideboard. Among other pieces, two square side tables were placed next to the sofas towards the center of the room in seasons 6 and 7. In seasons 8 and 9, these side tables were placed on the other side between the sofas and the fireplace.
 

After "Falcon Crest", LORIMAR used one of these side tables in seasons 12 through 14 of "Knots Landing" to furnish the living room in Claudia Whittaker's home at 16969 Seaview Circle; the screen grab is from "In the Dog House" (# 293 <12.17>; original U.S. airdate: 02/14/1991, CBS).

 
 
 
 
Sofa
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Living Room;
seasons 2 and 3):
 
 
In seasons 2 and 3, this 80" antique Victorian sofa was part of the furniture in the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion living room. It has a mahogany frame with a floral carved crest and four curved front legs as well as three loose-cushion seats. It was visible in detail for the first time in "Confrontations" (# 028 <2.10>; original U.S. airdate: 12/10/1982, CBS) where the screen grab is from.
With WARNER BROS.' acquisition of LORIMAR in 1989, all their assets, including this sofa, became property of WARNER BROS. The sofa is still in the studio's prop department, but has been re-upholstered with a slightly different floral fabric in the meantime.
 
After "Falcon Crest" refurnished most parts of the Victorian Mansion in season 4, this sofa became available for the use in season 6 of LORIMAR's "Knots Landing" in Valene Ewing's apartment in Shula, TN where she lived under the alias Verna Ellers. The screen capture is from "Uncharted Territory" (# 112 <6.12>; original U.S. airdate: 12/27/1984, CBS).
 
 
 
 
Tea Service
(Angela Channing;
season 1):
 

Angie's tea service between # 001 and 006 was some distinct porcelain in burgundy and red ground colors with gold border. It was replaced by a LORIMAR owned prop in # 007.

 
The original tea set was not owned by LORIMAR, but rented from THE BURBANK STUDIOS (nowadays WARNER BROS. STUDIOS). After being featured on "Falcon Crest", it was used on other shows filmed at THE BURBANK STUDIOS, in particular in "Hart's Desire", an episode of "Hart to Hart" (# 073 <4.06>; original U.S. airdate: 11/16/1982, ABC). That series was produced by COLUMBIA PICTURES TELEVISION. At the time, COLUMBIA PICTURES shared an interest in THE BURBANK STUDIOS.
 
 
 
 
Vase
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Living Room; # 149):
 
 

The 14th century Ming vase Chao-Li drops in # 149 (which was placed in the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion living room just for that purpose specifically in that episode) was a cheap porcelain vase from LORIMAR's prop department.

LORIMAR used this vase a few months prior in season 8 of "Knots Landing" in Sylvia Lean's apartment; the screen capture is from "Brothers and Mothers" (# 169 <8.09>; original U.S. airdate: 11/06/1986, CBS).

 
 
 
 
Virgin Mary Statue
(New Orleans Convent; # 056 /
St. Timothy Church of Tuscany Valley – Rectory – Father Bob's Office; # 087):
 
 
In season 3, the same Virgin Mary statue was visible in three different places in the convent in New Orleans where Maggie tried to investigate Jacqueline's past (picture 2); compare our Behind the Scenes section for more details. It was reused in season 4 as a statue in Father Bob's office in the rectory at St. Timothy (# 087; picture 3).
This prop, which is actually a fiberglass item made to look like stone, belonged to LORIMAR. WARNER BROS. got ownership of it when they bought out LORIMAR in 1989; the prop is still in use by its prop department.
 

This prop was used in season 8 of "ER" in "The Longer You Stay" (# 159 <8.02>; original U.S. airdate: 10/04/2001, NBC) in the interior set of St. Rafe's Hospital.

 
 
 
 
Weaving Loom
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Rooftop Studio;
seasons 1 and 2):
 
 
The rooftop studio in the main tower of the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion, which was seen between # 001 and 022, served both as Emma's bedroom in the back and Angie's art studio in the front. In said front part, there was a weaving loom with an almost completed fabric with a bird motif. The whole weaving loom with the fabric was not a LORIMAR owned prop, but rented from THE BURBANK STUDIOS (nowadays WARNER BROS. STUDIOS).
 
This prop — not owned by LORIMAR — was previously used on other shows filmed at THE BURBANK STUDIOS, in particular an episode of "Police Woman": "Mother Love" (# 44 <2.22>; original U.S. airdate: 02/24/1976, NBC). That series was produced by COLUMBIA PICTURES TELEVISION. At the time, COLUMBIA PICTURES shared an interest in THE BURBANK STUDIOS.
 
 
 
 
Wicker Chairs
(Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion Veranda and Terrace;
seasons 1 through 9 /
Francesca Gioberti's home, Tuscany / Italy; # 075 /
R.D. Young's home, Mill Valley, CA; season 8):
 
 
Throughout the series, the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion was equipped with a set of white wicker furniture on its veranda and terrace. One of the wicker armchairs was also prominently featured in the official cast group photos of seasons 1 and 7 because JANE WYMAN was sitting in it.
As stated in our Behind the Scenes section, a few pieces from that set were used as Francesca's outdoor furniture at her home in Tuscany / Italy in # 075 and as R.D. Young's veranda furniture in season 8.
 
During season 1 of "Falcon Crest", LORIMAR used a few pieces of the wicker furniture set — two armchairs and a small coffee table — in season 2 of "Flamingo Road" on Michael Tyrone's (DAVID SELBY) porch — the filming location was Arden Villa in Pasadena, CA, which was used on "Falcon Crest" as Riebmann's house in Buenos Aires / Argentina, Norton Crane's New York home and Michael and Savanna Sharpe's mansion. The screen grab from "Flamingo Road" is from "Strange Bedfellows" (# 24 <2.09>; original U.S. airdate: 01/12/1982, NBC).

Staffeln 4 bis 6):
 
 

At the Turf Club of the Tuscany Downs race track, there were a good number of dark green velvet wing chairs; screen capture 1 is an example from # 095.

LORIMAR later reused two of these armchairs to furnish the fashion store on "Knots Landing" where Charlotte Anderson bought her new outfit in "Always on Your Side" (# 292 <12.16>; original U.S. airdate: 02/07/1991, CBS).
