That was great.

A reminder to soap writers that great drama in a relationship does not have to come from a former lover coming back from the dead or a doppleganger or a convoluted scheme by a psycho.
There is great organic drama to mine from any relationship if you pick at it.

#PC's Ian Thornhart & #OLTL's Patrick Thornhart were brothers. They had a sister named Granya who was played by Susan Haskell who also played Marty Sayebrook on OLTL who was Patrick's wife. So Patrick married a woman who resembled his dead sister. That is weird.

Appeared in what was to be the fourth Mystery in the NBC MYSTERY THEATER series that included COLUMBO, McMILLAN AND WIFE, and  McCLOUD, but was not picked up.  His series was to be called CUTTER.  Here's the pilot in which he appears as Frank Cutter.  1972

In one of the pictures, we can see A. Ponzini (Vinnie Wolek) with Anna Wolek and in other picture, is he with the first Meredith? Any help?

That picture is tiny and my ancient eyes are weak, LOL, but I agree with Vee: it's probably Trish van Devere.

The actor in the second picture from the corner (top right) I believe is James Storm.  James was the second actor to play the role of Dr. Larry Wolek, taking it over from Paul Tulley in the fall of 1968.  
 

When James’ brother Michael was taking over the role in the early part of 1969, the writers had Larry become injured in a fire at the hospital.  Naturally, he had burns to his face.  When the bandages were removed after the plastic surgery, it was Michael playing the role.  I think I saw James on Dark Shadows for a while .

Incidentally, Larry’s sister Anna met her future husband Dr Jim Craig during this time.  I believe that the actor change from Robert Milli to Nat Polen took place shortly after Anna and Jim started to become friends.

That's definitely James. I'd know that face anywhere.

Why didn't Dan Woleck fight for his right to the Lord fortune?  Didn't Meredith get anything in the will to leave for her son?

Sorry that this is a reply to a long ago question, but I’m just now discovering this board.  
 

My recollection is that Meredith died several years before Victor.  After Meredith’s death, Larry Wolek and his son Dan moved from Llanfair to live with Larry’s sister Anna and her husband Dr. Jim Craig.

There was a reading of Victor’s will, and if I remember correctly, Dan did receive a very small inheritance, as did Larry.  Larry may have used some of the money to pay for Dan’s education and for the down payment on the house that he and Karen moved into…

Erika Slezak made a point of saying she thought it was nonsense when Dan was reintroduced as a working-class doctor in the '80s, because she said she was there for the scenes of the will reading and remembered how much money was left to Dan. I don't know who's right on that one.

One Life to Live's Donnie Jeffcoat (Joey Buchanan) will join me live in The Locher Room on Thursday, August 5th at 3 p.m. EST / 12 p.m. PST. Donnie will be here to take a look back at his career in television and of course his time spent in Llaneview. Donnie will also tell us about his current role as Chief Instructor and owner of Shaolin American Self Defense Academy and his most important role to date as father to eight month old Willow. Sensei Donnie Jeffcoat started his martial arts training in the Fredrick J. Villari Kempo system in 1985. To add to his martial arts repertoire, he transferred to Professor Charles Materra's United Studios of Self-Defense system two years later. Since then, he has studied Shaolin Kempo and various other forms of martial arts, including but not limited to fight choreography. Donnie has been teaching Kenpō since 2006 and opened the Shaolin American Self-Defense Academy in 2011. He currently trains in American Kenpo and is a fifth degree black belt.
