"Secret Storm" memories.

SS sounds like such a melodramatic soap opera. The storylines I've read remind me of classic movies I adore. And Marla Adams... OMG. She is still a very beautiful woman and it's too bad that she was never on a soap for many years (apart from her Y&R stint) after that.

Kate/Polly was on in 1962.
I've read that too, but this article is from April 1963, and, in the article, Polly Childs talks about originating the role in March 1961. Kate Lodge appeared at least 1961-1963 if not 1964.
I would love to see a more accurate cast list for "Secret Storm."

Rowland talked about how she had a reputation even as a teenager of knowing her lines. During a scene where she had to make a peanut butter sandwich while giving a two page speech to her mother, she reached for the peanut butter, only to realize someone had replaced it with a jar of pickles. That was the first time she ever went up on a line. Another time, she was supposed to empty ashtrays. She threw the butts into the trash, and looked down, only to see her sneakers on the bottom of the trash can.
They also talk about the story of a bull from captain Kangaroo that chased Gloria Monty into the control room. Rowland said it was a cow, but Gloria thought it was a bull. Rowland said she wouldn't be surprised if someone had done that on purpose.
Here's a photo I hadn't seen before. It has a Dark Shadows type of tone, don't you think?

I love those color 60s soap cast photos. The fashions were top notch. Must be Ohrbach's.

Yeah I love the 60s clothes in color. There's something striking about those plain, monochromatic dresses when they have blues or reds or greens.

Belle's dress is my favorite, even though it's so plain. It looks absolutely gorgeous on her.

She has a bit of a wild look about her - what was her character like on SS?
I really like Amy's sweater and skirt too.
Who is the other guy with Coster? I probably know him but can't place it.

Defeated in her last vicious effort to ruin Peter, Pauline Tyrell knows a momentary pang of real remorse. Will her evidently sincere apology deceive Peter into trusting her, and treating her once more as the sister of his dead wife and the loving aunt of his children? Or will his need to protect Jane Edwards make him as cautious as he should be in dealing with Pauline? And what of Jane's husband, no longer missing?

Does anyone know when Stoddard left the program? The obituaries have different dates and the soap books tend to be unreliable at times.
On a side note, I was just reading an article from December 1967 about daytime actors appearing in plays. Stoddard was listed as co-producing "The Birthday Party." George Reinholdt was appearing in Cabaret as well as playing Eric Fulda on "Storm." Actor Noel Craig was recently hired to play Herbie Vail on "The Secret Storm" and was appearing in "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead." Apparently, before appearing as Dan Kincaid, Bernard Barrows played Henry McGill, the president of the local university.

she asks, visibly upset. "I spent one whole night in the Animal Medical Center while the doctors did what they could. Then I took Jessica (Ellen's name for her foster pet) home and nursed her back to health. I'm happy to say that she's in perfect condition now and I'm looking for a good home for her. She's such a lovely little thing with the sweetest disposition. I wish I could keep her myself because she's a perfect companion for my own dog, Willie, a beautiful apricot-colored poodle. But unfortunately, apartment living in New York is not the best place for more than one dog."
Ellen admits to being a very private person and for a long time she didn't give interviews. But lately, she has begun to open up somewhat for the press.
"One day it dawned on me that five million people watch the soaps. If I could reach even a few of them and affect their lives for the better, what a beautiful thing that could be. If I could get some people to be conscious of the obligation we have to this earth and to each other; if people all over would begin their own recycling projects, think of the different we'd make. We could change things! As an actress and a human being, I have an obligation to try."

I wish we could see some of Secret Storm from that era. As you mentioned, I loved her on Ryan's Hope.
She was the second Joanna - I think Audrey Landers was the first.
