 Betty White guest starred on ANOTHER WORLD as Brenda Barlowe. 

I watched AW and don't remember her and I can't find any clips.

In January 1988, NBC Daytime created a Where's Betty contest where fans had to guess how many times Betty White popped up on ANOTHER WORLD, DAYS OF OUR LIVES and SANTA BARBARA over the course of a week. The winner was to receive a trip for two to Hawaii and $1,000 cash.

Here Betty's appearance on ANOTHER WORLD as "Brenda Barlowe" who calls Douglass Watson's Mac Cory

I can recognize Steve in the illustration, assumed it must be Alice kissing him, and eventually figured out that in the foreground Ada must be standing over the supine Rachel. I presume the couple on the right would be Jim and Mary Matthews, but am less certain who the other characters would be. Lenore and Robert maybe? Or Pat and ???

Does anyone know the backstory of why Rachel is on the floor like that? Was she having health troubles at that time or something?

Such a bizarre pose, especially with her legs up in the air like that

As indicated by my thread about soap caricatures,  I have an affinity for that form of mid century advertisement.  

I also id'ed Steve and Alice kissing, with Rachel on the floor attended to by Ada in leopard pedal pushers, then Lenore at the top of the stairs.

But, I cannot figure out the couple on the stairs (maybe John & Olive Randolph?), or the guy on the sofa, holding something (Vic Hastings or Walter Curtain holding either a murder weapon or a remote control?)

Perhaps, someone can recall the plots surrounding the hour expansion and that would solve this mystery.

Good article.  Expanding to an hour was good for spending more time in Bay City and Harding Lemay pulled it off by good writing of expanded dialogue.  However I think the hour long soaps eventually became a detriment to the genre with added characters and wasted time that took away from the original focus and core families (Matthews, Bauers, Hughes)

The characters are: Vic Hastings, Lenore Curtain, Jim and Mary Matthews, Steve and Alice Frame, Rachel Clark, and Ada McGowan.  

I was watching at the time, but I have no idea why Rachel is laying on the floor and Ada appears to be praying for her. I don't recall Rachel being ill or anything during this period.  I also do not recognize what object Vic Hastings is holding.  It appears to be a TV remote or maybe a camera.   Vic was on AW for a couple of years.  He worked for Steve at Frame Enterprises.  And I believe he ran the company while Steve was in prison.  If my memory is correct, he dated Janice Frame and Lenore Curtain, and I believe he had a severe crush on Alice Frame.
