  3. YR's 1973 episodes drew its largest audience. I hope tptb at CBS and/or Sony takes notice and considers making the early years available on CBS All Access.
  4. @slick jones Re MODERN ROMANCES, "The Sign-Off" should have been dated 9-9-57 (not 9-23-57). Found a more detailed synopses for 9-23-57.

  8. Thanks. It must be the newspapers that got confused. I'll sort it out as best I can.
  9. @slick jones @Paul Raven Do you know whether True Story and My True Story were the same series? Some of the newspapers have a synopsis for a particular episode listed for True Story, while another will list it for My True Story. For example, there is an episode called, Still Hunt, starring Kathleen Murray, which is listed under both titles. I found that IMDb has that episode listed for her under True Story.
  10. Re How to Survive a Marriage, the only story that really stuck with me was the death of Dave Bachman, and then his wife Fran dealing with her grief in the following months. It was very wrenching. That's one of the few soap stories that actually brought me to tears (my mom cried at that one too). Fran Brill was fabulous.
  11. @slick jones That should be Mario Del Castillo. I somehow deleted the D when I hit enter.
  12. Kristian Alfonso (Hope) opened up about her DAYS exit in a segment of ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT. “It’s been a rollercoaster of emotions and I have no regrets,” she told interviewer Matt Cohen (ex-Griffin, GH). In the piece, Cohen said that when producers suggested she be pulled from the show for five months, it opened the door for her to make the tough decision to go. Alfonso revealed that she had been thinking about leaving for the past few years, adding that she won’t be back. “I don’t plan on returning and popping in as others have done in the past,” she declared. “I think that chapter is closed and a new one needs to be started.” For the full story from Alfonso, pick up next week’s issue of Digest.
