I don’t remember Vic

Vic was on for a few years in the mid 70s. He worked for Steve. Lemay created him as a potential romantic interest for either Rachel, Iris or Pat, but according to Lemay, he didn’t really have chemistry with any of them, just with Susan Sullivan

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.   

Maybe she is having a meltdown because she lost to Alice

Gotta love media mistakes. Ted and Janice were both gone by the time AW expanded to an hour 

Please register in order to view this content

Ted I believe was gone but Janice was still on when AW went to one hour.  Didn't she leave around the fall of 1974?  AW went to one hour in May of 1974 for 10th anniversary or am I wrong?

That was only for the 10th Anniversary episode, AW didn't go to one hour full time until January 1975

Was amused by Connie Ford coming off all Helen Hayes of soaps with her 'Most of us are used to working in the the-ar-ter...'

At that point when was the last time La Ford had been on stage?

Found the same picture in another newspaper.  This one had an explanation about what was supposed to be represented.

Thank you! With the suggestion I am now able to make out the flame of Vic's literal torch for Lenore.

He was played by John Considine.

He also played Reginald Love 1986

I don't remember Vic but we discussed John Considine's friendship with Nicolas Coster a bit last year so I am aware he existed. I hope the character's manner was entirely unlike Reginald's.

Reginald was certainly a diabolical character. But I thought this was a good period with the introduction of the Loves McKinnons and I love Denise Alexander

I adore the introduction of the Loves and McKinnons before the Margaret DePriest era. MJ really resonated with me, and the introduction of Kathleen and her integration into the Cass/Felicia/Wally milieu layered on top of that fit so perfectly. On the Love side, Peter's introduction as an eligible bachelor with his snobbish sister Donna interfering in his love life was handled really brilliantly as well. Marley falling for Ben was serviceable (and secondary to the reveal that she was Donna's daughter) but replaced by the much stronger Victoria/Jake/Marley triangle. However although I liked Denise Alexander and Robert Hogan as Vince and Mary, I disliked the concept of bringing Reginald and Mary back from the dead and found that era just wasn't very good at complex characterization. I want Vic to seem different from Reginald not because Reginald was a bad man but because he was a simplistic moustache-twirling villain.

I also prefer the Loves during 1983-85 and McKinnons 1984 -85 than during the DePriest era.  I get angry when I think of how she gutted the show during 1986-87. I enjoyed AW up to 1995 but it was a very different show.

I am always delighted in the history of soaps when you get a character like Donna Love, who was introduced as an antagonist for Sally, but surpassed her, and eventually became a heroine in her own right, due to the undeniable charisma of their portrayal.  Donna is so interesting to me because whatever Depriest's original intentions were for the character, she became a muse for so many future writers who fleshed her out in other directions.

I guess we could put Clarice and Felicia in the same category.  They were supporting characters who were introduced to be a spanner in a relationship, but grew to become leading ladies.  Unlike, Victoria, Blaine, or Rachel, who were reformed by love and became heroines in a typical soap development, one could never have predicted the longevity of characters like Donna or Felicia.
