  1. Her name is (was) spelled L-E-S-L-E-Y.
  2. I was devastated when Frank Grant suddenly died. I loved John Danelle's work as Frank. I guess after that it was only a matter of time until Nancy disappeared. It really sucked. I would have loved to have seen Frank be Jesse's father figure through all of those years that Jesse was maturing. It would have made for genuine AMC story. Instead we were stuck with Angie's awful father, Les. I cried no tears when HE left the story!
  3. I remember how thrilled I was that my favorite girl singer was appearing on AMC. Does anyone have clips of the episodes with Lesley Gore as June? I remember the story, and I remember Lesley singing the song her character was pimping for Mark Dalton. I wonder if there is a recording floating around of Lesley doing that song.
  4. I wonder if that Peyton Place Revisited with Peter Lawford is the ABC Late Night Special I remember from the mid-seventies. I only saw it once, but I recall it as a nostalgic overview of the series with lots of scene clips and interviews with most of the original cast.
  5. Whoops. You were right. It WAS Dr. Lynn Carson. I don't know where I got "Franklin." Must have been thinking about Rosemary Prinz's character on "How To Survive a Marriage." ;-)
  6. Is there any video of Susan Trustman playing Pat? I've only seen stills of her. I remember watching in the late seventies when Harding Lemay actually used some of Pat's original story to create a new story with Pat, her daughter Marianne, and the man who came between them, Greg Barnard. Production did a great job of recreating the original story (Pat and Tom Baxter), using Beverly Penberthy and the actor who played Greg.
  7. I remember how the writing and storytelling was leading up to the scene when Devon threw herself into Lynn's arms. Yeah, it was groundbreaking, but somehow the whole story had kind of an "Afterschool Special" feeling about it. Tricia Pursley and Donna Pescow did the best they could do with the writing and the direction, but it just didn't quite work. I'm guessing ABC Standards and Practices was watching this story like a hawk, down to every last line of dialogue.
  8. That was a great story. I remember thinking it was the daytime version of "9 to 5," or "First Wives Club," only much more fun.
