Just started watching the eppies on YT. I was really young when this aired and only remember some of the names: Raven, Gunther, Draper, etc.

Gotta say that Elliot Dorn is so freaking hot! Love that bad boy! I think this actor should have been named Draper. The guy they gave it to doesn't seem like a "Draper".

Cookie was never a Capice.

She was Elaine "Cookie" Pollock when introduced. She later married reporter Malcolm Thomas (both in real-life on on the screen). He was murdered, she was arrested, but the real killer was found (Constance Ford as Eve Morris).

Cookie later had a romance with Adam Drake. Then she was romanced by Ron Chrisopher, her second husband. Ken Emerson, Malcolm's friend, was also attracted to her.

So, she was Elaine "Cookie" Pollock Thomas Christopher.

Variety April 1st 1959 During six-week European holiday of writer Carl Bixby, P & G video serial, "Edge of Night" has been written by Charles S. Monroe for the Irving Vendig packaging house.
Interesting. I have a couple of episodes from that era, and Monroe is not listed in the crawl as writer. Perhaps he ghost-wrote and never received screen credit?

Nola is a wonderful drunk and hats off to Kim Hunter for playing it so well! What an actress! I don't recall seeing a better drunk on TV (well, maybe Kirstie Alley on Cheers).

Owen, what a dumb unfeeling jackass! He's looking for a reason to stray!

Kim was wonderful as Nola. I hated Owen. He was the only character on the show I disliked at this point.
Agreed. It is not surprising, however. Kim was one of those celebrity soap fans who appreciated the live theater quality of television serials, while Bruce Gray regarded them with complete disdain. Apparently he was quite vocal around the set in his bewilderment that a fine actress such as Kim would waste her time and talent doing Edge of Night. He seemed as arsey in real life as the character he portrayed onscreen.

That's interesting. I'm surprised he went straight to EON after High Hopes if he felt that way, unless he just needed to pay the bills. He did a good job in the role, but I hated everything about Owen. I felt like they had more plans for the character and Deborah that were dropped (no big loss there).
