  1. DAYS behind the scenes, articles/photos

    Interview with Betty Corday, from 1967.
  2. I can see SSH doing that (lol) but the newspapers and magazines at the time reported that it was Kaye who physically attacked Susan. I have a clipping I'll try to find.
  3. The rumors in the late 80s that Eileen Davidson was a transexual, that soap columnists debunked for several years. From Days, around 1979, newspapers reported that Kaye Stevens had assaulted Susan Seaforth Hayes on the set after Susan called her out for being unprofessional.
  4. The Doctors

    The Nick-propping was at its worst during the Pollock era. Everything was seen from his point-of-view. He could do no wrong. At least the writers prior to the Pollocks used to have other characters occasionally call out Nick on his bad behavior. If Nick wasn't featured, all the other characters talked about him, even after GG left. It's only since the Pollocks left that he hasn't been mentioned very much. I am not looking forward to his return. Yoking Althea to Nick has ruined her character (for me).

    I’m being a bit pedantic here but Frannie and Sabrina weren’t twins. They had different mothers (Jennifer and Kim, which made them cousins, as well as half-sisters, lol).
  6. The Doctors

    The flashbacks and endless recaps seemed to lessen after James Lipton left the writing staff.

    The description of Julie being sensuous is always how I think of her from that period. Bell wrote Lori on Y&R in a similar manner. I was disappointed with Susan's material at Y&R. Supposedly, Bell created the role of Stephanie on B&B with Susan in mind but she turned it down because she wanted to go back to Days. I guess it would have been better for her career if she had accepted it.

    This is an October 1974 interview with Bryna Laub, publisher of Daytime Serial Newsletter. She talks about several shows but the largest portion is regarding Susan Seaforth Hayes and the way Bill Bell wrote for the character of Julie.

    This is a 1973 interview with Bill Bell. It’s mostly about Y&R but he talks a bit about Days too.

    Interview with Bill Bell from October 1973.
  12. Soap Hoppers

    @slick jones A magazine article I have said that Patrick Horgan appeared on the radio version of The Road of Life in its last year (which I think was 1959). It didn’t give his character’s name.

    They also played the theme from "Summer of '42" under one of the Mike and Toni scenes.
  14. Days: March 2018 Discussion Thread

    This is the fourth character on Days to have DID. Trish Clayton was the first, in the late 70s, then Jessica Blake, and Kim. This is the worst written and acted one though.
