Which run are we talking about, Bev's or Carmen's? If it's the former, I've heard it said that the Iris and Alex Wheeler storyline wasn't that great (wasn't it intended as TEXAS' initial marquee storyline?). If it's the latter, @j swift was talking not too long ago about the oddity of Iris falling for everyday kinda guy Hank Kent (which I think was her last story before the mess with Carl).

It was the latter.

How was she received?

June 1965

Actress Hasnt Changed, Remains Typical Teenager
Jacqueline Courtney may play one of the featured roles on a top-rated daytime television show with considerable assurance and aplomb, but off-camera she has all the same typical reactions to the problems, frustrations, and hopes as any average American teenager. Jackie, 18, who regularly appears in the role of Alice Matthews on Another World" (weekdays at 3:00 p.m.) has a nightly curfew, hates vegetables, wants her own telephone, wishes she'd be permitted free use of her new sportscar, and just loves" rock-'n-roll music.
 
The blonde, blue-eyed actress who entered showbusiness at the age of four, is under strict instructions from her mother to be home by 12:30 a.m. and that includes Saturday nights. And just to be sure that Jackie keeps to this schedule, her mother has not given Jackie a key to the house. But Jackie is not at all bitter about the restrictions placed upon her at home. As she puts it: I know my parents only want what is best for me, but what they cant understand as most parents cannot is that their little baby has grown up.
 
PLEA FOR PHONE
Like some teenagers, Jackie hates all varieties of vegetables and milk. As for the telephone a staple commodity and necessity of life" to any teenager Jackie has a problem. Although she has her own room, she has been unsuccessful in her arguments for a private phone. She confides that she has even enlisted the services of Doris Quinlan, producer of Another World," to help convince her mother that a phone is needed, but to no avail. Jackie's the proud owner of a brand new, white sportscar, but is prohibited from driving further than her own neighborhood in East Orange, N.J. For me, that's a tough situation," she says, because I love to really move in a car, and that's hard to do when you can only drive in a radius of a few blocks."
 
DIGS BRITISH SOUND
When it comes to music, Jackie is just nuts" about the Beatles, and has all their records at home. One of her greatest ambitions is to meet Paul McCartney of the group. She also likes the Dave Clark Five and Herman's Hermits. Jackie has a boyfriend who lives in nearby South Orange, but shes quick to add that hes not at all impressed" by her featured role on Another World. Although she doesn't contemplate marriage within the next five years, Jackie says that when she does take the plunge, shell quit showbusiness. As the saying goes," she points out, a woman's place is at home not in a TV studio."
 
TOUGH SCHEDULE
Although shes in many ways similar to the average teenager, Jackie's life has one big difference. As a featured actress on Another  World," she must work a ten-hour day beginning with rehearsal at 10:30 in the morning, and ending with rehearsal for the next days show at 6:30 p.m. On top of that, Jackie spends two nights a week working for a degree in psychology at Upsala College. In the few extra moments of spare time she can find, Jackie loves to ride horseback and go out dancing. Shes also an avid football and basketball fan.
Jackies professional career dates back to 1951, when she appeared on The Story Hour" over WAAT in Newark. She recalls that in her stage debut she appeared as the Good Ship Lolly-pop, singing and dancing in a candy-cane costume. She also recalls that at the time she was literally covered with curls I hated them, but my mom felt I should look like Shirley Temple, and look like Shirley Temple I did until I got to the fifth grade.

Glad to see that it appears she did continue to work during her marriage after all. I know Alice didn't have any bio-children but Courtney had a daughter. Did she take a mat leave?

It sounds like she did. From the AWHP:

Courtney left June 12, 1970 for a year's leave of absence, but she returned to pre-tape scenes that were spaced out over that time period. These appearances include: September 24 and 28, October 9, and November 2, 1970. She returned full time on July 7, 1971.

Thanks! I really only saw her in the 80s.
