He returned to soaps in the 80's with a stint on Santa Barbara.

 

He was in that dull "four orphans" storyline in 1990 with Cassandra, Mason (TL version), Craig Hunt, Ethan Asher, and...Derek What's-His-Face. Derek had an accent is all I recall, and flirted with CG's Kelly. But what man didn't flirt with CG's Kelly? (And I liked her, but really.)

 

Hatch was the original Stephen Slade. John O'Hurley later assumed the role.

 

The only quasi-memorable thing about that whole plot was Leonardo DiCaprio, pre-fame, playing young Mason in flashbacks for a day or two. And discovering Cassie was a (retconned) daughter of Minx Lockridge [who, if still played by Dame Judith Anderson, should have had Cassie as her great-granddaughter instead! But I digress...].

 

Which led to icky Cassie/Warren incestuous romance stuff...

I have not seen too much of Karen Lynn Gorney's Tara, but I thought she was terrible in Saturday Night Fever. People still trash her for her role in that film. Her IMDB message board is mostly posts bashing her.

I thought she was fine for the character. I'm not really sure what people thought the character was supposed to be. SNF is a beautifully acted film.

It's probably been 20 years since I sat down and watched SNF, so I might look at her with a different perspective today.  I remember not liking her character too well and thought Donna Pescow should have been his main love interest and dance partner. I saw the 1977 SNF premiere party that was on youtube a few years ago and Karen seemed out of it and people kept commenting on her behavior as if she was on something.

 

Karen seems so sweet in the Tara clips I have seen.

I asked the main SB channel I go to if they had anything of his SB run and they put up a clip. He's pretty good. Too bad it didn't work out.

Hatch was very memorable in a film about the musical duo Jan and Dean, and he was absolutely great playing a mentally-challenged young man in an episode of MEDICAL CENTER.

According to her autobiography, Maureen "Marcia Brady" McCormick claimed to have had a brief relationship with Mr. Hatch when she guested on Streets.
