  1. Robert Colbert was an actor who played Stuart Brooks on The Young and the Restless. To my knowledge, Mr. Colbert never appeared on Dark Shadows. Perhaps you confuse him with music director Bob Cobert. Ramse Mostoller never worked on The Doctors either. Her husband Joe Mostoller was costume designer for The Doctors.
  2. C.C. Courtney took a break during Edelstein's tenure to work on his play Salvation. To explain his absence, Jody was sent down South to visit his family. Jody's final onscreen appearance was in November 1969 under Ira Avery. No explanation was given when Jody ceased appearing in the story.
  3. The cast photo is from December 1978.
  4. I cannot say how I ultimately came to this, but how funny it is to see Dr. Ed Bauer already an alcoholic in 1968, and his lawyer just happens to be the father of Miss Elizabeth Harriet "Melissande" Wilson. https://www.youtube.com/embed/j6enOPMkQRs'> https://www.youtube.com/embed/j6enOPMkQRs
  5. Thanks for the Peter Burnell article, Carl. This is one I had not seen. Wow, does Peter look young in those photos! The one in which he's holding the book -he resembles a teenager. His youthful looks put him in good stead to play Mike Powers much younger than his age, just as Nancy Donohue plays much older with her hair up, even though only four years separates her and Burnell. Your efforts are appreciated, as always.
  6. robbwolff, Peter Burnell vacationed for many years at 581 Commercial Street in P-Town. The house was owned by his partner Gerry Mast. You should check it out when you are there. My husband and I may be in P-Town at the end of October/beginning of November. We vacation there every autumn when we can coordinate schedules. It is far more peaceful, and we enjoy driving down The Cape from Boston. If you and I are there at the same time and you have the time, perhaps we could meet for drinks or dinner. I might bring along some very rare soaps to watch!
  7. Yes, Leister recurred on OLTL through the end of 1979 as Jenny Wolek's obstretician in the infamous baby switch story of Jenny and Katrina Karr.
  8. Mimi Kennedy did not play Phoebe. When the character returned in 1972, absent since 1968, actress Laurie Kennedy was cast in the part. Laurie is the daughter of film actor George Kennedy. It is my understanding that Kennedy could not cope with the pressure of live performances and was let out of her contract after only a few weeks in the role. Leister replaced her. Johanna chose not to renew her contract, and Slesar used her departure in the Claude Revenant plot, which affected most every character on the canvas. Phoebe's first story upon her 1972 return involved her affair with the o
  9. Stuart's treatment of Ellen Holly was despicable and did not serve the series well. I could not tolerate Burghardt even without knowledge of his offscreen personality. He appeared very cold, arrogant, and unlikeable onscreen, too. I had not really considered this before, Monika, but I am wondering now how the story would have played had Conrad Roberts been hired as Dr. Jack Scott? I think that he and Ellen Holly would have worked well together, onscreen if not off. The final executive producer, Gerard Straub, dropped the live-action beauty shots and replaced them with stills in the summer
  10. Monika, the current theme we are heaing on Retro TV will be replaced in 1971. It seems that it occurred during the late summer, but I might be wrong. At that point, the music production changes from Robert Cobert to Score Productions. Bob Israel of Score composed the theme. It lasts until March 1977. For that year's anniversary episode, the series premiered an opening title sequence and re-orchestrated Israel's theme to what is commonly referred to as "pop flavored," though the end theme is actually slower than the original theme. In August 1980, Israel's theme was dropped altogether. The
  11. Added Steve Garrett ...Michael Beirne ...68 or 69 to the list. Thanks for the Fontaine info, Jam...I knew I read it somewhere. More later. Does anyone know if Kathy Ryker ended up married to Nick Bellini? In some synopsis or article, I thought I read that... Yes, Kathy was definitely married to Nick when she died. You can say this for Bellini, he knocked them up but at least he always married them.
  12. I agree. There was some wonderful material at OLTL under Stuart, but again, it was very much the hard work of Gordon Russell, the directors, and the fine ensemble of actors. Stuart generated conflicts between actors. He was just a junior version of Paul Rauch, though Rauch, cretinous as he was, possessed some creativity and flair on occasion.
  13. I would ascribe a good deal of the change in atmosphere at The Doctors to the new producer Joseph Stuart, who assumed the position from Allen Potter in 1973. Quite frankly, I never cared for Stuart as a producer or as a person. His comments in Jeff Giles' book annoyed the hell out of me. To this day he finds it a personal affront that he was let go from The Doctors when (as he tells it) he won the show its Emmy. What gall. He had hardly walked through the door when that award was presented, and it was for material that was largely produced by Allen Potter. Stuart is an egoist. He was not a
  14. Illness played a role in it, too, I imagine. He and his lover Gerry Mast were positive. Gerry died of an AIDS-related illness about a year and half after Peter committed suicide.
  15. NBC did not own Another World and did not archive the early black-and-white or color episodes. However, black and white kinescopes were routinely made to air in markets that did not have videotape machines or in markets that chose to air the series out of pattern. Procter and Gamble did syndicate early 70s episodes of some of its soaps, including Another World which was telecast in Australia as early as 1974.
