Back aroung Pg 11,there was 'back from the dead' thread that you might want to check out.

To the best of my knowledge,the first back from the dead character may have been Matt Corby on Love of Life.

He was actually Paul,Vanessa's first husband who had been killed off in the late 50's.This occurred around 1970.

Around the same time on Search for Tomorrow,Sam Reynolds was thought to be dead and he resurfaced about a year later.

If anyone can give earlier examples where a character is killed off,written out and returned to the show please post.

A few years ago I asked my much older sister this very same question. She said Sam from Search and that it was quite shocking at the time.

As a child I remember Roger Thorpe from GL, and Nicole Travis from Edge (but we all saw Nicole clinging to the wrckage)

    • I always liked Harley dancing in the opening and the crescendo at the end but I think I'm considerably more partial to the '80s GL theme (does it have a name? idk if it was Jack Urbont but it came after the disco mess) vs. Hold On To Love today. This is the one I mean (timestamped). They kept it til '90, I guess (the later one is faster and more synth, and I liked it too). I also always really liked the haunting light through the trees/Ritournelle. It was mysterious and kept the tone for me with the Dobsons/Marland's stuff. I knew AMC (still overbudget, having moved to California) was in real trouble when they dumped the masterful scrapbook opening and basically xeroxed GL's horrible PowerPoint slide, BTW:  
    • I'll never understand why they dumped the '80s ATWT theme. I always hated the cornfield opening. The overly dramatic music did not match the stories at all.
