Thanks for that Saynoyoursoap, I'll go in and adjust it!

Fixed...Boy, Bobby Mackey sure has given me some grief! I

I've never liked Richard Cox's characters in anything I've seen him in....I guess there's a reason.

Please let me know of anything else any of you ind, I'm glad to fix it so it's more accurate.

BTW Saynotuorsoap, many of your videos over the years have been a help as well, so Thanks!

Did you see Richard in William Friedkin's Cruising? Yikes. I have met him, and he is the nicest fellow in real life. Bobby was a piece of work, though. He had befriended Bill in North Carolina when Bill was dying of leukocytemia. Bobby and Walter went to Rosehill following Bill's death. Bobby used his knowledge of Bill's life to trick Charles and Tess into believing that he and Bill had a psychic link. He even lured Van's foster daughter Stacy with tales of ESP and the occult to convince her that they could make contact with Bill and Stacy's late mother beyond the grave. Bobby actually wanted to get his hands on the rock opera Bill wrote before he died, and persuaded Tess to give him Bill's life insurance money for its production. Bobby was murdered that summer, shot to death, and Tess stood trial for the murder. All of this lead to her departure.

Paul Ailey, played by Stephen Elliot, was Tess's defense attorney in the summer of 1973.

I forgot about Cruising...I did like him there. A lot of his primetime characters as hoods turned me off. I'm sure he's a nice guy, and he's a good actor, but I really couldn't stand Giff Bowman on Loving. Of course, a lot of their hinkier (is that even word?) characters left a bad taste in my mouth so to speak, and the music producer that raised Drew on GL wasn't a favorite either.

I knew Stephen Elliott's character would have been an attorney, most of his roles were. I especially liked him on Dallas, as Scotty Demarest(who should have gotten together with Miss Ellie after Jock died, before she wound up with Clayton Farlow. I also enjoyed him as Douglas Channing on FC, a role they should have used more before killing him off.

Thanks for the story info about Bobby Mackey, I've only read the brief comments in a few books about the story!

More Love of Life.

Lt. Garfield's first name was Burt. He was a recurring character from 1973 to at least 1976. Among other things, he investigated the murder of Bobby Mackey and was played by Robert Anthony in 1973. In the mid-70s he was involved in an arson investigation when Arlene set fire to the Club Victoria. Larry Prince was a music producer hired by Rick Latimer to advance Kate's career in 1973. Dr. Bryson, played by Earle Hyman, appeared in 1975-76. He was a psychiatrist who treated David after he committed patricide, and also counseled Felicia Fleming for her childhood trauma.

I'm sure you already have all of this, but if you ever want me to put down some of the casting news that used to be in the back of Daytime TV issues, I could do that with what I have, when I find them again.

I guess there's also the cast lists at the end of The Doctors episodes.

This is more for The Doctors thread, but does anyone know who the woman was in a July 1968 episode, she was in the clinic mostly, a tall, middle-aged woman with a pink suit?

It's the Wed. July 17 episode. She pops up in the clinic - I'm not sure if she has any dialogue or not. Then she is in the beauty shot/crawl. She has a pink suit and white gloves.

I think I somehow missed the one with Jo Henderson. I'll have to go back and watch it.

Slick, the character of Terry Andrews on LIAMST had gotten pregnant by Jock Porter in 1966. The wealthy Porter family persuaded Dr. Jim Abbott to perform an illegal abortion on her which led to her death before the series started. This story was used to write Jim off when CBS pressured Irna Phillips to drop the Eurasian romance angle. Terry might have appeared in flashback portrayed by a day player, but she was not a regular character.

I think I somehow missed the one with Jo Henderson. I'll have to go back and watch it.

I will watch the July 17th episode again, too. However, the pink lady must not have appeared familiar to me as I do not recall any other identifiable performers from that time period. I do so love The Doctors, but I wish the program had credited its supporting cast with more detail. Larry Linville's appearance and amount of dialogue should have earned him a spot in the credits, but it did not.

Jo Henderson played the disagreeable woman who demanded birth control information from Karen and complained to Matt.
