  1. In their book, Bill and Susan said that Margaret DePriest was the writer who refused to write for them, after seeing them on a tv show during which they mentioned the lack of story for Doug and Julie. Susan is referring to that incident in the documentary.
  2. I've long suspected that Gerald Gordon was basically playing himself on TD.
  3. This is a documentary about Bill Hayes' life and career. There are some (brief) clips of very early Doug and Julie. (Sorry it can't be embedded but it plays when "Watch on Vimeo" is clicked on)
  4. Martha definitely used to call Nick out on his bad behavior in the early days. I liked that better. She does get obnoxious now sometimes with the Nick worship. I even started disliking her for a while because she was going overboard with it.
  5. Yes, I like him with Maggie and Martha, and as uncle to Rico. I even like his adversarial relationship with John, as I think GG and PH had good acting chemistry. But there were zero romantic sparks with Redthea, the three Cathies, or Ann. I didn't watch GG on GH so I don't know whether he had chemistry with his leading ladies there.
  6. Gerald Gordon didn't have romantic chemistry with any of his leading ladies on TD, except for Elizabeth Hubbard. And I don't even see that anymore. It doesn't help that his character is a brute, as far as I'm concerned.
  7. She reminds me a bit of Fran Sharon, who played Cookie on Edge of Night, but I'm not positive that it's her.
  8. From 1969:
  9. John Randolph was definitely staid but that's one of the reasons I liked him. Not everyone needs to be dynamic to work as a character.
  10. Lemay did destroy John. He made him really stupid in regard to his involvement with Olive (Jennifer Leak). At least John went out a hero by trying to save Alice from the fire. I always liked him and hated to see him killed off though.
  11. Michael M. Ryan (John Randolph) has died. http://obits.dignitymemorial.com/dignity-memorial/obituary.aspx?n=Henri-Ryan&lc=2770&pid=184333657&mid=7315244
  12. Haha---I'll have to thank her!
  13. Slick, this is from a May 7, 1973, newspaper. I'm wondering whether they meant David Elliott, instead of David Perkins? Guess we'll find out in a few months.
  14. January 1964 article about the offspring/relatives of well-known entertainers getting their break on The Doctors, including Mia Farrow. She appeared in the 5-part story, "The Stone Maiden," which aired the week of August 5, 1963. https://www.newspapers.com/clip/7901659/detroit_free_press/ https://www.newspapers.com/clip/7901503/detroit_free_press/
