  1. @slick jonesDon't know whether this is any help, but I found a blurb re Balaban being cast in "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown," from 1967. The blurb said that he had previously been on EON. No mention of ATWT though.
  2. @slick jones @Paul Raven I found an article from July 1968, regarding a play in which Ebert was appearing, that stated he played (past tense) Chuck Ryan for three years (but didn't give specific dates). Didn't find anything re Balaban or Chastain.
  3. There was a Mike (Randolph) and Molly (Ordway) on Another World too.
  4. @slick jones Is that Lydia Bruce with Bill Lipton?
  5. I agree about Hope, although the writing isn't the only problem. I don't know what is going on with KA. She just seems so remote/emotionless most of the time, and then she seems to be flirty at inappropriate times.
  6. Yeah, that was awful. Poor Robert Clary had to sing for them! I wonder what he thought about that? I was more interested in the CBS soaps in the 80s and 90s, but that gradually waned too. The soaps started copying each other too much, and not in a good way (e.g., Reva being cloned on GL; I'm surprised that JER didn't come up with that one first). I mostly stopped watching soaps all together in the late 90s, then a co-worker got me into watching Days again, around 2006. I've stuck around out of habit since then, but they've almost lost me. I'm barely watching now. I was not familiar with Ron's prior work, so I tried to give him a chance, but I finally had to admit that he's terrible. I'm afraid we're stuck with him until the end though. I don't know how soaps will ever again attract the new audience they need to survive (and they've alienated many of the old audience). There are just way too many other quality options now.
  7. Some of the 80s stories (and performances) do seem cringe-worthy now, but I continued to watch, even after my favorites left. I do think Sheri could still mine warm moments from the OTT stuff. I thought the scripts she wrote in her latest stint with Days were good but those were too few. I suppose she didn't want to remain at that capacity. She seemed to have little, or no, influence on Ron, as far as her consulting position was concerned. @DaysFanatic777I always enjoy your posts too, wherever I may find them.
  8. Sometimes I wish for more Horton returns, but then I remember who is writing, and then I'm content to keep them in my memories. Sarah Horton finally returned and she barely interacts with her Horton family. Eli rarely does either, except in his professional capacity. I do hope that Marie at least returns if/when the show is canceled in the next few years.
  9. Frances had a stroke after returning from a trip to Africa.
  10. I don’t recognize anyone from a soap. I’ve seen the blonde woman in the V-8 ad in a lot of other commercials. I think the man in the first commercial was Will Rogers, Jr.
  11. I saved it to Dropbox. This is the link. https://www.dropbox.com/s/521qifwb6745nh2/Complaint-2.pdf?dl=0
  12. Farrah actually did appear on Days in a brief role, in 1970. She was in scenes with Bill Hayes. She talked about it after she became famous.
  13. The Sarah recast has arrived. I think she's much better than the first one. Sarah now wants to go to law school. The actress, Dorothy Fielding, resembles young Meredith Baxter.
