  1. Aww, look at Fra looking so spruce.
  2. It really is perfect and I love that shot of Harley groovin'. Tangie sipping her champers is lovely enough, Reva, meh... no one shone in that final spot like Harley. An article written about this opening makes mention of the fact that the original intent was to focus on the main players with many more generic shots (pearls, flowers, et cetera). I remember when it became so bloated with cast members that there was a. day and b. day, the cast split 50/50. Like with every other soap opening, with the new additions came dips in quality. There were clips that were too short and were awkwardly paused and rewound (like Rock Hudson in Dynasty's opening titles). Another article mentioned that if you look closely you'll see that the opening mimics how a real lighthouse works. I didn't understand what they were getting at until I recently watched a documentary on Maryland lighthouses and saw the Fresnel lenses:
  3. Klosky popped up on American Idol after his GL stint. They didn't show his full audition, he wasn't invited to Hollywood.
  4. Yes, Audrey North played by Constance Towers pre-GH. I remember her sobby confession and John telling her to get out of his sight. Not sure that she did more than that one episode.
  5. I'm not sure, but Paul and Anna didn't have the best rapport if memory serves, right?
  6. Messing with my mind how they have both Diane and Vanessa in red, and how SLG and AS both played Donna on AW. I was kind of skipping around the episode so I thought there was an internal dual temp recast going on. I don't remember the circumstances of MK's absence, but an op-ed in SOD suggested that GL was foolish not to jump on the chance to rehire AS as Vanessa. My memory is a little foggy, but I'm assuming this was after AW was cancelled.
  7. Anna read for Felicia and AW ended up creating Donna for her so she was certainly on P&G's radar.
  8. I have some episodes from this era, and I assumed she was wearing a wig as they were particularly popular in the seventies. But as a poster at WoST convinced me years ago, this was her natural hair (adding that Beverlee was a Leo, of course she had great hair). What I want to know is how bloody long did she have to sit in the chair having her hair set like that!? The styles certainly got simpler on GL. Jay Hammer said Beverlee had two alarm clocks: one on the bureau, one in the bathroom. She'd wrap her hair in an Hermès scarf and head to the studio.
  9. Oof, I could not STAND second Taylor. I haven't uploaded to YouTube in forever, but I'm reminded that I have an episode where Taylor and Noah have a pretty hot love scene. Ingrid was in Carlito's Way which was covered in SOD. I always assumed she left AMC to pursue her film career. She was really good at playing a nasty princess (in a way that didn't make my teeth itch like her replacement). When Taylor figured out that Lucas was Terrence's father, it drove me nuts the way she kept gleefully reminding Terrence that he was, "Lucas Barnes' *bastard* son!"
  10. One of the racists in Deconstruction fell for her, and like in every tragic mulatto movie ever, of course he wanted to kill her once he found out she was black.
  11. @Darn Check out this link, some pictures. She kind of looks like Paula Jones. https://themakeupgallery.info/disguise/ethnic/amcir.htm
  12. Think Wayans brothers in White Chicks. Of course Ingrid was much prettier.
  13. Infuriating! Particularly on a rotary phone, all of that wasted time.
  14. That article had me crying blood. They should have just kept the inflatable doll stuff to themselves and merely said that they're taking every precaution. Then at a later date drop the "nifty trivia"... "Hey B&Bliebers, wanna know what made those steamy love scenes so authentic during a pandemic??" Will we be paying any attention to what these characters are saying or be entirely preoccupied trying to catch the magician's tricks? I have no idea where B&B left off, but do you loyal viewers think a 3-minute recap will do? Is it necessary to re-air a week of episodes? Would the show benefit from fast-forwarding a little?
  15. This is the most poorly written crap I have ever witnessed. It's not even embarrassing, it's egregious. To think that people get paid to produce this [!@#$%^&*] is blood curdling.
  16. I follow Victoria Wyndham on Instagram, I really enjoy her posts and I'm so happy that she's living her best life in Connecticut with her horses and dogs and birds on a lovely piece of property. Her artwork speaks to me, we share the same tastes.
  17. I can't put my finger on it but Susan is reminding me of SMG in that short clip. I've never thought that they particularly look alike but there's something in that clip that is really giving me the connection.
  18. I never knew that Bay City was a university town, nor that the opening quote was Keats. Thanks for sharing.
  19. I was totally rooting for Leslie that year and figured Erika had it in the bag for the following year. Of course she was wonderful, but I thought Erika won a year too soon.
  20. Dorian was down there for a month. Jean made Dorian phone Cassie to tell her that she was in Spain and had no intentions of coming back to Llanview. When Jean learned that Cassie had the call traced to a local cell phone, Jean knew her plan was unravelling and she agreed to release Dorian (on several conditions) once the house was clear. Todd confronted "Viki" about their pervy father and Jean lost control and Niki emerged. She took off for Atlantic City and left Dorian starving in the secret room for days. Dorian busted through the wall and discovered an underground tunnel. I was certain this tunnel was going to lead to Eterna, but no, they didn't go there. Jean reemerged and rushed back to Llanfair just in time to catch Dorian before escaping, and released her as promised. It all eventually came out but at first Dorian had to honor Jean's conditions to keep Viki's abuse and other personalities a secret, and to dump Joey and marry David. In return, Jean would ensure that "Viki" wouldn't further pursue murder charges against Dorian since it turned out that Irene's diary confession that got Dorian off death row was a forgery.
  21. It's all a matter of retro-logic really as Robin Strasser pitched the idea of introducing the sexual abuse factor into Viki's history of DID. She's admitted that she sort of shot herself in the foot by doing so as it led to the revelation that Viki killed her father when Robin used Dorian's responsibility for Victor' s death as major character motivation. Me too. As well as the scene I believe @Paul Raven talks about where Karen whoops Dorian's ass.
  22. Rare Claire Malis sighting ten seconds in.
  23. Has VR guest-starred on any of the OWN series? Rather than be wasted on Y&R, she should be a series regular on one of those shows, she's certainly as capable as/more soapily equipped than Robin Givens. VR could play a Dru-type, in the vein of so many soap stars afforded the same opportunity in daytime (soap hopping playing essentially the same character with a new name and set of circumstances). If we still had at least 10 soaps on the air, maybe VR would have had this chance by now (assuming someone in daytime with a spine stood up for the "uncastable"). And then there was "sassy" full-figured Sofia, and I wish somebody would look me dead in my face and tell me that had nothing to do with Oprah in The Color Purple.
