I would love to know who played Dr. Taylor and Sgt. Clark.

 

The show's associate producer, Chandler Warren, was also a writer for Texas.  (I wonder if  the character of Chandler Garrison on Love Is a Many Splendored Thing was named for him?)

Actor Chris Gampel was Dr. Taylor. You may recall him from All My Children as Dr. Anatole Karras, Dr. Christina Karras Martin's father in flashbacks in 1977 or 1978.

It's funny how the basic premise of this show mirrors the suggested spin-off for Peyton Place at the time - break out character Betty left for New York after her failed marriage to Rodney and that was supposed to be the show. Of course, it ended up playing out on screen on Peyton Place and Betty returning to the small city, but it makes you wonder if the writers for Our Private World heard about it and decided to take it for themselves. Then again, it's not exactly the most original concept lol

not surprising at all since irna phillips, who wrote ‘our private world,’ was involved in the development of peyton place.

The show (Peyton Place) had originally been envisioned as an anthology series about the various citizens of the town.   Irna Phillips thought that it should have been a serial and persuaded Paul Monash as much.  Robert J. Shaw, the co-writer of Our Private World, was a frequent writer of Peyton Place episodes (particularly during the first season).

according to his emmy legends interview, when douglas cramer (who had been a supervising [email protected]) came to new program development @ abc, he approached irna phillips about creating a nightly drama series. pgp said no and cramer turned to ‘peyton place.,’ hoping irna would write the serial. but abc wanted monash, who had written a well-received episode of ‘the untouchables.’

monash hated the idea of pp as a soap; it was he who called it ‘a high class anthology drama.’ since monash had no idea how to serialize a story, cramer brought irna on as a consultant. reportedly, the relationship between irna and monash was, shall we say, less than collegial.
