(Kathryn) Good evening, I’m Kathryn Leigh Scott. 49 Years ago tomorrow, I appeared on the first episode of Dark Shadows playing Maggie Evans and later, Josette DuPres, who, thanks to Bob Cobert, had her own theme song . . .

(David) . . .and I’m David Selby – I played Quentin Collins and thanks to the gentleman we are about to honor, my character had his own Grammy-nominated, top 10 theme song –

(Kathryn) David, could you hum a few bars?

(David hums the opening bars).

(Kathryn) – Bob Cobert is a wonderfully gifted composer of many kinds of music – jazz, classical, big band, pop-rock, western, disco and even game shows – but his 7 decade career is best-known for the dramatic scores he has written, arranged and conducted for dozens of suspenseful films and television programs.

 (David) – From DARK SHADOWS and The Night Stalker to Burnt Offerings and The Winds of War, BOB COBERT has taken millions of viewers on a magnificent musical journey of thrills, chills and romance – let’s take a look.


(Kathryn) – It is our extreme pleasure to present Bob Cobert with the Saturn Award for Lifetime Achievement.
