Gloria Loring could flat-out SANG!

 

Agree!  Also, she, like Susan Seaforth Hayes, has the ability to light up the screen with just her face.  All any director or camera person has to do is put the camera on her and the rest takes care of itself.

Her phrasing and performance abilities are perfect for the soap chanteuse format. That song was mostly the same guff which seemed to spin around in the late '70s and early '80s from one 30something easy listening songstress to another (the part about the Great Wall of China feels very "someone lost a bet"), but she makes it work. Fitting that she was crossing over with Patty Weaver, who did the same. (is it me or does Trish seem out of place with this period? Then again so does Abe...)

 

The Doug and Julie scenes were also worth the watch. I am sure some people might have found their double act annoying, but for me it works, and the mix of comedy and banter between them during all the high drama feels real. SSH also looks very chic here.

Indeed. She’s captivating. And soaps have trotted out tons of people, even actors who are also professional singers, to perform over the years, and it’s almost always embarrassing. GL is a cut above.

I love Diane Sommerfield as Val and wish the show had kept her kong-term!

 

Felt like the 1st time Val and Trish met...? They didn’t meet in the 70s?

 

Who is Evan sitting with?

 

Last question, can the soap gods please gift us with every episode from Pat Falken-Smith’s run?

Diane was the third Valerie

To point one, agreed. I like how they kinda cast Vanessa Williams to more to resemble Diane Sommerfield than Tina Andrews. I see similarities in their mannerisms and voice.

 

To the second, no, there was a line Trish said to Liz about running into a friend. The tension is probably just from Trish being tense about David being on the run (he was presumed to be the Strangler at this point by the Salem PD, and was on the run for shooting Alex, I believe?)

 

Evan is sitting with Renee, it looks like.

 

I'd take even a few full episodes. These clips are KILLING me, I want MOOOORE. LOL!

It was "Something So Right," composed and originally sung by Paul Simon:

Liz was right this is the type of song to listen too on a rainy day.

 

As a maniacal serial killer sits across from you in the dark.

    • Have been scrolling through a site with random old Australian TV listings and discovered that ATWT aired in primetime in Sydney on Ch 7 in 1974! It's from Thursday Nov 28th at 8.30pm, This is the blurb... Carol returns home and asks Tom to give up Natalie Bannon's case. Grant and Joyce have a showdown and Grant decides not to divorce her until she has fully recovered. So it seems not to far behind the US storylines. Quite frankly I'm surprised that Oz execs would take to a daytime soap that had been running for nearly 20 years and expect viewers to be interested. Meanwhile the same channel was airing DOOL, Y&R and GH during the day. The Melbourne listings for the same evening do not have ATWT in the schedule, in fact the entire schedule was different. So it looks like ATWT was Sydney only exclusive. Wonder if it was nightly and how long it lasted?
    • Ahem, did we know that Tanner Novlan (Dr. Finn Without Personality) is married to actress Kayla Ewell who starred on B&B from 2004-2005 as Caitlin Ramirez (daughter of Sydney Penny and Lorenzo Lamas) who was Thomas' first teen love!?   We now go back to your regular scheduled programming in session...
