  1. I read that Lynn Topping Richter (Chris) twins played Jennifer onscreen, but like you have never seen their daughter onscreen. I just watched some early 83 clips and Julia and Nikki are arguing over Victor. Eventually they became good friends. Rick Darros looks like he could be the brother to Michael Scott. Rick tells Allison he is a writer. Randy Holland who played Rick was a Y&R writer along with Meg Bennett (Julia).
  2. I hope there is a scene uploaded when Nikki meets the first Mrs. Newman.
  3. Yes. I hope that scene turns up again. Margaret Mason was brilliant as crazy Eve. I remember one synopsis from 1980 said something like " The arrangement should work out fine, since they are both unwed mothers".....LOL Imagine that being printed today.
  4. I love the scene where Eve tries to stab Victor after he reveals he is alive. The men in white coats come to take her away. Eve acts as though she is going away on a little vacation. I wish I could remember the line she say's something like " Yes, that would be quite lovely"
  5. I think in the beginning. I'm not sure how Derek was written out after all that. Julia eventually discovered Michael in the basement and set him free. Victor and Michael struggled knocking Julia down the basement steps. She was rushed to the hospital and almost died. Victor prayed that if she lived, he would set her free to be with Michael. She miscarried the child. It was discovered that Victor's vasectomy didn't take and the child was his. I remember that scene. Nikki wanted to get one last look at Victor and said he was the only man she ever truly loved while Kevin was standing right there. Kay told her he's gone let him rest in peace while trying to rush her way. Nikki also argues with Julia when she tried to get to the casket to open it.....LOL
  6. Eve showed up in Genoa City in 1980 claiming her son "Cole" was fathered by Victor. Julia and Victor's 10 year marriage was already crumbling bit by bit. When Victor took over Chancellor industries in Kay's absence, Derek Thruston was angry. He and Eve found out that Victor had a secret vasectomy to keep from fathering children with Julia. Did they send the test results to her ? I can't remember. In the long run, Victor told Julia a child would be an intrusion upon their lives and he wanted her to choose him over the baby. Julia worried herself sick over it, then Victor "Had a change of heart" and told her he wanted the baby. He sent her away for a few days to a spa to relax. While she was away, he had the bomb shelter built and lured Michael to the ranch. He locked him in the basement. He talked to Michael on closed circuit TV. Michael could also see what went on upstairs on the monitor, like Victor making love to Julia which angered him.
  7. I had no idea who she was when she showed up to replace Lilibet Stern. I did not like her in the role at all. It wasn't several till years later that I learned she had been on and returned to OLTL. I did not watch ABC soaps. She had been married to and divorced from Wayne Massey (also from OLTL). He married country singer Charly McClain in 1984 and were popular in the 80's on the country music scene, but they both faded from the spotlight by 1990.
  8. The first decade did have a more moody melodramatic feel to it. It was basically a different show. Then came the changes of the core cast, lighting, and some light hearted (comedy) elements were added to bring the show into another phase.
  9. I read that Kenney insisted the Stevens family be removed when he stepped onboard. I wonder why ? Did he just take one look at them and some of the other cast member and say " Ahhhh Hell No, I'm not feeling this " ?
  10. Only with Lilibet Stern in the role......LOL I wonder how Krista Tesreau would be as Patty ? I just remember her as Mindy on GL, but heard she was horrible on OLTL.
  11. I agree. I always remember the Williams home and it's middle class colonial suburban style. In the mid 90's they randomly started talking about Patty around the time Bug & Paul were planning their wedding.They showed photos of Lilibet Stern in the family photo album as Bug & Mary looked at it and Mary told her that Patty was her sister in law. Then a few episodes later they showed the back of a blonde woman in a phone booth dialing the Williams home while everyone was at the wedding. It never amounted to anything.
  12. Another thing that killed the Williams family was the loss of Lilibet Stern as Patty (Bell was upset at her leaving). Andrea Evans was a bust in the role and the character was quickly written out after a year. I say if Lilibet had stayed, Patty could have driven story for years. Bell never brought Todd on canvas and quickly wrote Steve out after about a year. I guess the Andy character filled the void as he and Paul were close like brothers.
  13. A few month prior to Y&R premiere, there was a highly rated ABC movie of the week that aired on November 22, 1972. It was titled " All My Darling Daughters".....in it Robert Young is the father of 4 very different daughters that all get married on the same day. Their similarities to the Brooks sisters is uncanny. The youngest daughter played by red head Judy Strangis even sounds like Pamela Peters Peggy. I wonder if Bell saw this movie and became a bit influenced by it that he tweaked his storyline bible for the sisters ? Yes that is a pre- Cagney & Lacey Sharon Gless as one of the daughters.
  14. Found this image on the net. It appears to be taken directly from the TV screen. Ron & Nancy Becker circa 1976 John Conboy in the control booth at CBS.
  15. A re-post of the Brooks sisters reunion in 1984.
