I cannot remember who she played on Love Is a Many Splendored Thing, but  I do know that one of the little girl actress (very young) was the granddaughter of Patricia Benoit (Follow Your Heart, As the World Turns, Mr. Peepers).

 

 

Slick, I want to inquire about a character and performer about whom I had forgotten until this morning.

 

This was on All My Children.    The character was an African-American who was a co-worker and a friend to Philip Brent when Phil was working as a U. S. Park Ranger.   I know that he appeared at Phil's funeral.   I am thinking that the show tried to keep him following the funeral, but there was really nothing that the show could do to tie him to the other storylines.

Do you know the name of this character, or who played him?

 

It seems to me that they could have made this man the husband of Caroline.   When Caroline was introduced, she was a Viet Nam widow, but I think that having her first husband be this character would have made as much sense.

Thank you, Slick.   That's sound right, except that I had forgotten that Clem and Caroline had been friends.

 

Also, I want to correct that information that I posted about Love Is a Many Splendored Thing.    The young actor was Patricia Benoit's grandson, and he played Billy Garrison (if I am not mistaken).

Mrs. Corrigan didn't die on the operating table. It was after surgery -- I assume when she was in the recovery room. And she did appear on screen in the recovery room albeit she didn't have any lines.

Thanks a bunch, Paul.   I added them to the list.

 

In the 3/3/70 episode of the Doctors, Maggie and Althea had a clinic patient that looked like Jack Ryland. Does anyone know if it was him? Over at Daytime Royalty, it was mentioned it looked like him.
