  1. Getting a little tired of THE WORLD ACCORDING TO CARL. Some of us are actually old enough to remember these old shows, even from the 70's.
  2. Poor Rocky. He was also the butcher on the Shake `n Bake for pork chops commercial back then
  3. I saw Vince as an uncomplicated blue collar guy rather than a bad boy. An Angie (Maeve Kinkead) prop more than anything. A bit of a Mr. Spock. There was a place for him if they`d had more imagination. BTW, I loved her then. In my ten year-old mind she could do no wrong. She was incredibly beautiful and talented. It was as if they could not decide on making her a bitch or ingenue. Either one could have worked. The Perrini family had such a naturally strong foothold in the show with her, Rose (Kathy Widdoes), and Joey (Ray Liotta). They all went on to varying levels of career fulfillment. AWs loss. Damn you Paul Rauch.
  4. You are the Jean-Michel Basquiat of soap opera. Just don't end up like him - we NEED you. You are brilliant. Keep wrting.

    Why was my thread about mob violence in Montreal removed.

      Sorry if this is not the correct place to post this but I tried to updated my email address but I never received the "validation" email to finish the process. Now I don't have full access to the site and I'm in a pending state of needing validation! Can you help or direct me to the correct mod that can? LOL...Validate me please! Thanks a bunch!

      Same here, I'm new to the site Toups but haven't been validated yet. It's been about 2 weeks and I don't have full access to the site. Could you help?

  6. It's gone slightly down hill since they added Blossom.
  7. My sister used to tape this show. I was never able to get into it. I might have seen Tina Louise's first episode as a recast, out of curiosity. I had no idea it was related to the novel of the same name, but that same sister loved the novel.
  8. High Hopes indeed. Barbara Kyle was a regional version of Rula Lenska. She was doing commercials for one of the low end department store chains; K-mart, or Woolco, or maybe it was Miracle Mart. I don't remember which, but she'd always say, "Hi! I'm Barbara Kyle, for ________." And we'd all say, "Who?" Then I saw her on High Hopes and wondered if they were trying to take advantage of her popularity on a show that no one watched.
  9. This is one of those shows I never knew about until WOST. What a fascinating cast.
  10. I read them all even if I don't always comment. I should express my gratitude more often though. I owe the one from France (name escapes me) a few thank-yous as well. Probably a few others too.
  11. He was also on Texas playing a drunken TV talk show host. I remember reading an interview with Beverlee, where she gushed about how much fun it was, and that he was playing a talk show host like Tom Snyder, only sleazier. My jaw dropped.
  12. I don't know that I ever disliked Clarice. I rolled my eyes at her, but she was simple and honest. I was probably too young to appreciate the purpose of a character like her.
  13. Yeah, I caught that. I always keep another window open on IMDB when I read these threads. And thanks for all these vintage soap articles, Carl. Here and on other threads.
  14. Interesting. Please explain. Were you watching then too?
  15. Clarice was as dumb as a box of hair and a white trash waitress to boot. She allowed things to happen to her while Iris, damaged as she was, at least tried to take control of her life. Of course that meant trying to take control of other people's lives as well.
  16. I don't remember Mac's bust being smashed but I do remember when Robert slashed Iris's portrait (that "Daddy" had comissioned) some time later. Good old Beverlee flipped when she gazed above mantlepiece to discover the damage. As I remember it, by then Robert was aware Clarice was carrying his child, and also aware of Iris's campaign otf harrassment against her. She was one busy bee with lots of stings. I would have been 8 years old in '76, and I don't remember Rachel having this miscarriage, but it feels like they were still playing at Rachel redemption for nastily sending Alice those baby clothes after her miscarriage (among other misdeeds). Okay, we're on the same theme. But my aging brain seems to have lost the details.
  17. I don't know if Gregg Marx was the last David, but he was the coolest.
  18. Susan Oliver. She's tilting her neck in that photograph. I half expect her to turn into that Star Terk character she played, as she really was.
  19. Little People, Big world?
  20. Any reason for his quitting? I always kind of liked him. At one time there were rumors that he was up for the role of Clint Buchanan as well.
  21. Wonderful actress, consistently good.
  22. I found her. Her name is Georgann Johnson. For some reason I remember her from both ATWT and the TV movie "The Day After" http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0425133/
  23. Okay now you are ringing a few bells. Didn't his mother own a hotel? And I believe she was played by a well-known TV face, even if she wasn't a household name.
  24. I have an actual visual recollection of this show. My sister was a big fan of the novel, the TV series, the soap and subsequent revisits. Figure... the show ran '72 to '74 and I was born in '68 so I was was anywhere from 4 to 6 years old. It was a scene of Rita (Pat Morrow) pulling a draft beer behind the bar in a pub. Maybe someone who actually watched it can tell me if this makes sense. I also seem to remember an article about her in one of my sister's soap mags; with a photo of Pat Morrow in mauve tinted John Lennon style glasses; probably how I knew the actress's name before IMDB came along. Given my ADHD writing style, I know it's hard to believe I was reading at 3 but I was.
  25. In quebec, LOVING was AIMER, I think. An odd one was the French opening theme for Santa Barbara. They took that old Peabo Bryson (yes him again) song, "If never you're in my arms again ... blah blah, this time it never ends" whatever the words are, and gave it new lyrics about Santa Barbara
