The revolving door of town psychopaths on Guiding Light continues to amaze me about this time. I know both Kit and Ken are one of the most notable ones, but my brain is a bit foggy on Charlotte (A role originated by Victoria Wyndham). The town also seemed to be filled with schemers and masters of manipulations, the most prominent being Holly Norris.

It's unusual to see James Lipton as one of the writers for GL around this time, knowing how miserably he failed on both AW and later on Capitol, and to see that he wrote the show with Robert Cenedella too? GL seemed to be a dumping ground for AW's less talented writers. The show really didn't find a truly good HW until the Dobsomes arrived in the mid 70s. So I'm guessing that after the Dobsome's departed GH, they went straight to GL/P&G?

Yes, the Dobsons moved to GL in 1975 and were replaced at GH briefly by Richard and Suzanne Holland before new GH EP, Tom Donovan could steal Eileen & Robert Mason Pollock from DOC. Cenedella moved to DOC after GL. It must have been his late stint as a HW.

At Y&R's debut, Leslie Brooks was 25, Lorie (Lauralee) Brooks was 22, Chris Brooks was 19, and Peggy Brooks was 16. (I have the original press releases and story outlines from before the show premiered, as well as articles and news stories from its first few years.)

Thank you for this.

Do you have the ages for Greg and Snapper Foster? I know Jill was 18 when the show premiered.

The town also seemed to be filled with schemers and masters of manipulations, the most prominent being Holly Norris.

I would love to see some of Kit or Charlotte. I know Victoria and Nancy Addison weren't on at the same time but I'd love to have seen them together, talk about acting paradise.

Charlotte was a real piece of work who drove storylines for years. She came to town pretending to be Dr. Sara Macintyire's niece, but was only using her. After this was exposed, she sank her hooks into Mike Bauer. They married, I think she got pregnant and had a miscarriage. She was mostly interested in being married to a wealthy lawyer. She treated his daughter Hope with open contempt. She was an obstacle to prevent him from getting together with Leslie.

After Mike was finally free of her, she turned her sights to Joe Werner, but this story was her downfall (I guess the show was phasing her out since Wyndham had been gone for several years and Melinda Fee may not have had the same spark -- or maybe the character was just played out). She used Kit Vested in her schemes to get Joe, but she assumed Kit was a meek person. Kit was actually disturbed, and became increasingly insane. She poisoned Charlotte to get her out of the way. I think either Sara or Joe were accused of her murder.

Thanks Carl, I really appreciate the insight. :) The Kit Vested/Charlotte storyline sounds amazing. Never knew that Kit was actually portrayed to be a meek character at first. Sounds like a story I would have tuned in to watch.

Jill was 18, Greg was 20, and Snapper was 24. (I'm going from memory here, but I'm almost 100% that the ages are correct, as per the promotional material in my collection).
