DOes anyone know where it is possible to find OLTL classic episodes???? As I know, we can enjoy a 1969 episode, the ones of a Daytime to remember (1976 and 1979)and the WONDERFUL CLIPS of marcowasmypinp in youtube. But where can we find with good quality the episode of 1969??? And I also think 2 episodes from 1971 do also exist...Do you know any page in the internet with the information of the existing classic OLTL episodes??? Thanks

Trust me, I've looked for years. There seems to be next to nothing. The Paley Media Center has I believe a color episode from 1969 for viewing--but those episodes they host next to never leak out to "traders". And even the 1976 episode on Daytime to Remember is edited (I am not sure if the show was 45 mins or an hour at that time). The earliest full episode I know of, from a Soapnet marathon is from 1980 I believe, Asa's wedding.

I'm going to visit Paley next month and watch that color '69 again. I'll take notes this time. :lol: I have a clearer understanding of who the characters back then are now. But I'll also do another general OLTL search to see if they have any other early stuff. That '78 stuff marcowuzmypimp has was an awesome discovery. To think that there may be more of those out there that just haven't made it to YouTube yet...

Do a check for AMC too and Loving while you're at it :P

AMC seems to have those five kinescopes from 1970-1971 and then nothing till the 1978 Tom/Erica wedding, though we have seen some clips--a kinescope of Tara and Charles (or was it Phil?)'s wedding? Paul and Ann's baby probs (which woulda been around 1978 too) etc.

Didn't realize Paley's database is now searchable online.

Earliest OLTL episodes I see listed:

{MEREDITH'S MISSING}

10.28.68

In this episode, Joe tells Anna about his feelings for her, which go beyond the boundaries of friendship. Meredith has left the hospital but nobody knows where she has gone. Nurse Martin is the only person who saw Meredith leave, and Larry is concerned since he and Meredith are supposed to be getting married tomorrow. Dr. Craig tells Dr. Trainor about a patient, Carla, who has been receiving outside treatment. Craig wants Trainor to assist him with Carla but he is unaware that Trainor is attracted to her as well. Commercials deleted.

2.26.79

In this episode, the town is upset by the arrival of Mario, a brother who eerily resembles his murdered rackateer brother Marco. Also in this episode, Jenny's husband must face his serious gambling problem, Mario investigates the unsolved murder of his brother Marco, Carla and her husband celebrate her birthday, and Tina and Greg kiss each other in a closed diner. Includes commercials.

3.5.79

(No description)

8.4.80

MARIO'S GUN {EPISODE # 3084}

They also have clips of Karen on the stand as well as the Daytime to Remember episodes. What really interests me is the 12:49 long {ABC AFFILIATE PRESENTATION} they have listed. If that's the original one from '68, that would be awesome to see.

LOVING

-{THE ALDENS' RECEPTION} {SERIES PREMIERE}

6.27.83

The premiere of this daytime serial about the residents of the town of Corinth. In this episode, anchorwoman Merrill Vochek finishes her interview with Roger Forbes, who has just become president of Alden University. Afterwards, Roger asks why she has been avoiding him, and as they prepare to embrace, Roger's daughter, Lorna, enters the room and Merrill leaves in a hurry. Back at the Donovan house, Merrill tries to convince Douglas that they shouldn't go the Aldens' mansion for a reception, but he knows that failure to attend would be disrespectful, since he now works for Roger. Meanwhile, Lorna continues bickering with her brother, Jack, and wonders why he returned to Alden University since he had a scholarship offer elsewhere. The following events then occur at the party: Garth Slater wonders why Merrill didn't slander Roger the way she did a few years ago; Jack meets Lily Slater and wonders why she avoids him; Douglas and Merrill take a walk around the mansion and Roger joins them; and, when Douglas leaves to get them beverages, Roger tells Merrill he loves her, and the two embrace in a passionate kiss, which Lorna spies from a distance. Includes commercials, promos, and a public service announcement.

-{JEFF MENACES TRUCKER, ROCKY}

(No Date Given but Larkin Malloy credited as Clay so sometime in 1992)

In this episode, Curtis and his father Clay Alden argue about Clay's impending divorce from Curtis's mother. The argument is interrupted when a man arrives to deliver a message from Simon Hemphill. Meanwhile, Trucker and his sister Rocky try to stay warm in their cabin, while reminiscing about Trisha, Trucker's now-dead former lover. Later, the conversation shifts to Rocky mentioning how she believes she recently saw the presumed-dead Jeff Hartman and how stunned she was. Trucker and Rocky try to figure out whether Jeff is indeed alive -- which would likewise mean that Trisha may be alive too, as she was in his car that crashed -- and had just faked his death. At the same time, Jeff is outside the cabin, cutting Trucker's truck brakes and setting up a ruse to cause Trucker to drive on the snowy night. Elsewhere, Ava tries to console her mother, Kate, whose hair is beginning to fall out due to cancer treatments. Ava offers her a variety of wigs. Includes commercials.

-{TRUCKER SETS A TRAP FOR CLAY; ROCKY HOPES TO BE ALLOWED BACK IN SCHOOL}

1.16.91

In this episode, the following events occur: Rio suspects that Clay is the father of his sister's unborn child, but Rio's sister claims that her current boyfriend is the baby's father; Alex believes that Trucker has left town even though Trisha tells him that he is wrong; Trucker tries to get Clay to slip up by telling him a white lie; and Rocky visits one of her professors to ask that her suspension from school be overturned. Includes commercials and promos.

Yeah, I thought that was interesting how you just got the movie and they have the next day's first daytime episode. They only have those three episodes listed. I did watch a Loving episode there before, but James Horan was creepy Clay, not Larkin Malloy as credited in those episodes so I don't know if that was taken down after Worlds Without End or just not showing up in the search.

Yes, that's the OLTL episode I saw which interestingly enough makes no mention of Viki (Gillian Spencer) and Victor (Ernest Graves) who are in it. Carla is mentioned but unseen unfortunately.

Not to make this a Paley Center threadjack but they also have about a dozen Another World episodes from the '60s and '70s. The ones from the '60s are donated by the Bell Family Foundation. I've seen the ones from the mid-'70s that include some great Rachel/Mac/Iris stuff. They also have an episode of Lovers and Friends and one of For Richer For Poorer.

The oldest AMC episodes appear to be from '79, though the one about Erica's disco is I think a little earlier. Kelly's in it, when did she leave?

Vee, it's the perfect spot for a rainy New York afternoon. It's right by the famous 21 Club. The only thing that kinda sucks is that you can only make four selections and you have about three hours to watch so you have to do a little fast forwarding if you select hour-long programs. Thankfully, most of the classic soap stuff is under 60 min.
