  1. DAYS behind the scenes, articles/photos

    I know! People forget about things like that when they get nostalgic for the '80s stories.

    From 1982, on Days, the robot was invented by Chris Kositchek, with the help of Eugene Bradford. Alex Marshall used it to poison Kayla.
  3. I found this on Newspapers.com, from October 1989.
  4. There was also another Valerie on The Doctors in 1965 played by Leila Martin.
  5. The Doctors

    He appeared in a few 1974 episodes as himself. Can't remember the exact date. He was in the hospital with a broken leg and Laurie was his nurse. Here is a promo picture with Marie Thomas. Toni Kalem is signing his cast. She played one of the background nurses for a few episodes. Don't know the actress in the middle.
  6. Selena Cross (played by Margaret Mason) was on Return to Peyton Place in the 70s (though the name was taken from the Peyton Place novels).
  7. Characters with multiple backstories

    Doug Williams' long-lost brother, Byron, wasn't a twin (though played by Bill Hayes). He was an older half-brother that Doug (who had lived in an orphanage) didn't know about. He was only on a few episodes and then died. So I don't think that really changed Doug's back story.

    Part of a recent interview that Robert Clary did for The Television Academy Foundation.
  9. Cancelled Soaps Cast Lists

    This is little Tommy from LoL. I wonder whose child he could have been playing?

    Recast Linda was one of the worst I've seen. Didn't capture the essence of Linda, at all.

    I didn't like Fee at all as Mary. She played her all wrong. I wasn't sorry when Mary was murdered. Leslie James is the character who was involved with Chris. I don't remember Cassie being a major character.
  12. The Doctors

    No, I think she leaves (left) in early March.
  13. Shocking Deaths and Surprises

    Remembered another scene that shocked me re Susan Martin on Days. When David's mother, Helen, shot Susan in the heart after Susan was acquitted for killing David (by reason of insanity). Also on Days, when Stephanie Woodruff (Brooke Hamilton) burned off her fingerprints by placing her hands in a hot skillet, and when Trish (though it turned out to be an alter) killed her abusive step-father by bopping him in the head with an iron.
  14. Soap Hoppers

    I believe the picture with Alice Yourman's listing is actually Alice Faye. I wasn't able to post them here but I posted pictures of Alice Yourman at the usual place. @slick jones
  15. Shocking Deaths and Surprises

    Addie was supposed to die from leukemia when Hope was born but Patricia Barry had leaked the news to a friend in the press, who of course reported it, causing an audience uproar (I knew nothing about that at the time). The Hayes said in their book that Bell was furious, and that’s why Addie didn’t get a death scene when she was killed. We just heard the screeching of the tires off screen. I believe poor Susan was given uterine cancer as the medical issue. Kind of funny that Susan was the good girl, yet had babies after quick trysts with a near stranger, and a total stranger!
