Sad news about Carmen.  I would not have chosen someone with such a thick accent to play Iris, but I'd rather her than Beverlee.  I know that's blasphemous to most of you but BM as DW's daughter was always ridiculous to me.  

 

Carmen was exceptionally talented and I loved watching her on AW against VW.  RIP 🙏

It's always a red-letter day when Victoria Wyndham, Susan Lucci, and Joan Collins appear back-to-back in my IG feed. VW even laughed at my lame iris joke re: her garden. She seems to be enjoying a well-earned retirement from television on her beautiful property with her animals. I love her artwork, and I'd gladly make my way up to NY/CT should she ever do a play.

Thanks for telling us about that. I keep hoping he will find some soap episodes or even clips, but this is good too.

 

(who is the woman Joel Crothers is kissing? That isn't Tina Sloan is it? I can't remember if she was his love interest at this time)

 

It's interesting to see Rachel and Steve being showcased in a "love in the afternoon" feature. I wonder if Lemay preferred them to Alice/Steve deep down.

Yes, that's a young Tina Sloan as Kate. I'm guessing this promo is from 1974   [[EDIT - duh! it says so right on the clip]] , because Steve is still caught between Rachel and Alice and HTSAM is still aired between AW and Somerset (it moved after AW expanded in Jan 1975). I thought Lemay didn't really like Reinholt and his acting style any more than Courtney's, so wouldn't have wanted him as the endgame for Wyndham. Douglass Watson took over the role of Mac in fall 1974 I believe (IMDB is wrong to say 1975) and I think it's not until that time that Lemay gets the idea to pair Mac and Rachel.

 

I wonder if NBC ever complained that ABC took over the "Love in the Afternoon" theme a few years later and really made a splash with it. Of course, it had been the title of a 1971 BTS soap novel by Ed Zimmermann (the second Joe Werner on GL), so the phrase was out there in the aether.

Welcome!

 

Eveytime something is posted on that channel, I cross my fingers it will be soap related.

Plus, that's Carolee Campbell in the clip for The Doctors, and she didn't leave the show until 1975.

Amanda & Sam were married way too soon. Sam and Mitch's shoplifting mom Loretta was a hoot. Loretta was a great contrast to her brooding moody sons. A shame she was discarded after a couple months. Never to be mentioned again.  Really love Cass & Nicole. A shame Nicole was thrown under the bus. So Cass could ended up with new age witch Frankie.
