Yeah, on the one hand I appreciate the efforts of most of the uploaders, on the other hand, I wish they'd at least get together and build a "Vault" similar to the B&B/Y&R collectors, which I am certain led to the B&B folks streaming classic episodes on YouTube.

Want to hear something truly hilarious? The last video of "B&B From The Beginning" that I viewed on YouTube, P&G ran ads for streaming the episodes? Ain't that a kick in the head?

 

I've saved a lot of GL/ATWT videos from some of the YouTuber's who have been taken down (unfortunately I missed a LOT) but it would be nice to see a vault created. I have no clue how to do that and they aren't technically 'my' videos.

I remember when the Hughes family recieved the news of Will/Pa/Grandpa Hughes' death.   Carol Demming Hughes Stallings answered the telephone, and Mrs. Kopechne/Hughes informed Caol or his death.   Carol then informed the others.

 

What I do not remember is an on-screen funeral for Pa.   It seems natural that there would have been one, and I guess that I missed it.   Was one shown?

 

Older perfomers Santos Ortega and William Johnstone (Judge James Lowell) were dropped when the show was expanded to a full hour.    The reason given was that the older performers may have not been able to stand a show that had doubled in length.

 

However, at some time in the 1980s (after I had stopped watching the show), Judge Lowell was brought to the show.     Later, the actor did pass away.    Was there any acknowledgement of the judge's death?

When Ethel Remey died (but had not left the show before her death), the role of Alma was temporarily recast.   Then, Alma departed to take a lengthy cruise.

Judge Lowell never made it to the 80s. The last year the character was on the cast list is 1978 or maybe 1979. I don't think he was seen much in the few years prior to that. He was most definitely not on the show in the 80s.

Originally, I think that vault contained links to GL and ATWT but the last time I looked, the links to ATWT and possibly GL were gone. It may have been a lack of space issue.

This is my opinion but the only persons who have a genuine claim on these videos are the production company itself, the writers, the actors and some members of the production crew. They, I would think have more right to the content of these episodes than people who recorded episodes and had no hand in creating the content, as enjoyable as it is to see them upload episodes.

Okay, it's one thing to try to profit from your personal edits of episodes, (which I will never understand and seems sketchy at best) but selling intellectual property that you had no hand in creating for personal profit seems illegal, in my opinion. They're lucky that P&G simply hasn't cared enough to go after them.

Yes, I know that I started watching regularly (instead of it just being on in the background as a kid) in 79 and he was never mentioned. I know that the actor came to the 25th anniversary party so he was up and about and apparently no hard feeling so I wonder if he just wanted to retire? Odd that they just never mentioned him dying off camera. Alma was mentioned when Gregg Marx was Tom as an excuse for Fulton to take her 3 month hiatus at that time, he said she went to take care of her mother, "Grandma" in Florida who was sick. Then Alma was never mentioned again.

The song works with the scene. Dusty is being weighed down with school and trying to spend time with Lily. So he's daydreaming as that song starts playing.... If I was a man...a stronger man...a nicer man......etc...

The song completely works for the scene, within the context of everything that surrounds the characters (Lily is also daydreaming about what if Holden were more like Dusty and vice-versa, which plays out later when Lily unexpectedly sees and is shocked by Holden wearing his Miami Vice inspired outfit for the opening of the Mona Lisa) , especially now that I was able to watch the video and listen to a clear recording of the song. I wonder whether the music supervisor, etc. chose the music before or after the scene was blocked and rehearsed? During post production? Or perhaps as soon as they got a copy of the script? It seems tailor made for the scene.

One thing about the video itself. Instead of watching that awkward dancing, I'd rather they just have a slideshow of 1980s Brian Bloom throughout the video, lol.

Danfling, 

As another poster stated, I believe Judge Lowell last appeared late78/early 79 as he was not seen at Dan Stewart's funeral.

Granpa Hughes was married to Mrs Kopechne in July 75 and didn't that all happen offscreen? So I presume Santos Ortega was probably unwell and not up to appearing before the show expanded. I imagine the funeral was offscreen also (maybe Penny,Edith and John were mentioned as having been there)

Ethel Remey/Alma was written out due to illness and replaced with Dorothy Blackburn until Alma could be written off. Ethel Remey didn't pass away till 79.

I didn't know that Dorothy Blackburn ever played Alma. A good role for her, though I adored Ethel Remey. Dorothy Blackburn had the important continuing role of Louella on AW, whose testimony placed Liz Matthews on the scene for the murder of Wayne Addison and thus creating enough doubt for the jury to acquit Lenore.

Another fall 1992 episode, set right after the other I posted last week. Maybe someone can guess the date. This one has Bob and Susan in Montega, and another of Kim's experimental hair periods.

    • Don't do it. They take your money, keep you hanging for weeks and then block you.  I learnt the hard way when I had to try and reclaim a lot of money back.  I reported them over and over but FB won't take the page down. 
    • I really like that cast photo: Kay holding tight onto Brock like he is her lover whereas Jill and Phillip Sr oose so much swinging seventies...
    • These assessments heavily rely on when you STARTED watching (or stopped LOL) because of the sheer length of B&B's timeline by now: Due to Caroline's death, the whole relationship has the perfect romance status - forever. Even though the last time we have seen Caroline was her ghostly visit in January 2021. Ridge had to FIGHT for Caroline and he had the chance to GRIEVE for Caroline. (Something that has rarely happened since because pacing nowadays is soooo different!). For me Taylor was always Ridge's second perfect love. Now that I've seen 1990-1992 it is a little harder to fall this assumption because I had no idea hoq quick the shift  of commitment happened in 1992. However, from 1993-2002 there was zero possibility for that Ridge actually loved Brooke. She was a caniving h* who always used her children for her own benefit and desperate need to cling onto Ridge.  Ever since the show shifted to Nick/Brooke/Ridge and Bill/Brooke/Ridge we have entered a whole new aera in the traingel business which made Brooke much more liekable for me, but the perfect romance never involved Ridge.  
    • I am watching early 1991 right now and to me it is obvious that Ridge is attracted to Taylor but more emotionally involved with Brooke, although he has given up on her because she's marrying his dad (kind of like he tried to give up Caroline after she married Thorne and dated Brooke instead). Another thing that is obvious is how Brooke is clearly more in love with Ridge than with Eric, and that that marriage was doomed before it began (Brooke dreaming about marrying Ridge on her wedding day to Eric).  I agree that after Thorne, Grant was Macy's best pairing. He was very good with her and cared very deeply about her happiness. I think Macy as a character was very sensitive to OOC writing and it showed in the storylines the months before both her deaths. Because she was usually so decent and sweet, she didn't have a lot of leeway, so anytime she broke that pattern it made you go "whoa..." and it didn't always ring true. Usually it was her interactions with Brooke that pulled her out of character because Macy was shown to truly hate Brooke and it wasn't really in her nature to be hateful, bitter or vindictive (she usually ended up on friendly or at least civil terms with all her rivals - even becoming best friends with Karen). Also, she was more aggressive with Brooke than I'd say was believable for Macy (it was more in character for Macy to turn that destructiveness inward). But it went both ways - Brooke also showed her absolute worst side in her interactions with Macy to the point where it was almost OOC (I never really knew Brooke to be quite as gleefully sadistic with anyone else as she was with Macy - like when she sent her a drink, or when she casually suggested that Macy's mother was dead just to see Macy's reaction). 
    • That has definitely been around for a while. Don't think it is photoshopped. I have seen it in 70's mags, just much smaller and B&W  Also there is a different shot of Jeanne, Brenda and Donnelly from this same shoot. All in same clothes but just the three of them and grouped differently. Here it is from a 70's mag but can't remember which one.      Please register in order to view this content Now I look, the B&W one is slightly different. Bill Espy has crossed arms and Brenda is looking more straight on to the camera.  Oh the one with Brenda, Jeanne and Donnelly is definitely a composite from the above cast shot. Just realised that, haha
