I noticed this, too. Funny, because he also has top billing in the 1978 episode that has been around for a few years. I wonder when that was became standard. The next-earliest credits we have are from '66 (the ONLY black-and-white roll I've seen), and he comes after Don MacLaughlin, Helen Wagner, Nat Polen, and Rosemary Prinz. Polen and Prinz were gone by 1968, so maybe then?
Assuming he received top billing at the same time EF received the "and" distinction.
*the* best ATWT theme of all time, IMO, but y'all already knew that lol I have seen literally no video footage of Ethel Remey as Lisa's mom. I knew she was on the show until 1977, but I guess seeing her name in the credits here just made me realize how long she was really around for. She just might be my Margo Flax for ATWT.
Yeah, I was about to say, I don't recall the Pollocks having anything to do with SB, considering they were knee-deep in Dynasty at the time. It's actually pretty interesting to me as I'm watching both their Dynasty and their Doctors sorta concurrently.
Who is VERA, and how come I never heard of this hot mess character until now? How long was she on the show? Also, Dottie has to be one of the most forgotten characters who was actually around for a number of years during some of the show's highest rated years.
Forever rolling my eyes at the fact that Shameless still submits for comedy and that William H. Macy is the only performer that the nominators seem to notice or care about. I'd rather the show just be shut out every year than get represented by the quintessential "Oh, we know him and like him" nom.
This photo of AJ and Miranda always makes me sad because I can't help but think of what could have been, but paired with this lovely, classic soap write-up, it makes me sob. Can't you just hear it? "Loooooove in the afternoooooon! On ALL MY CHILDREN. Is AJ doomed to consoling Miranda when other guys break her heart? Or can he make her see him in a different light? Find out what it takes to blur the line. WEEKDAYS."
