Yep Capitol was Conboy's baby! 

 

Very sorry to hear of his passing though, another daytime legend gone

  While his divisiveness can be discussed in the Classic Y&R, Capitol, GL, and SB threads but for this thread I have to say you cannot ignore his contributions to the genre. His work and renowned lightning techniques contributed to the early success of Y&R; Capitol was a success cut short yet and is still well remembered; plus he also produced the cheesy yet fun "Judith Krantz's Secrets" mini-series in 1992.

No, you can't.  He brought a touch of old-school Hollywood glamour to Y&R and CAPITOL that others tried (and failed) to emulate.  Regardless of however ELSE I felt about him as a producer, I certainly tip my proverbial hat to him for that.  RIP.

'The Ross Hunter of Daytime Television.'I think Constance Towers made that statement.

He began on Love Is a Many Splendored Thing before Y&R, Capitol, Santa Barbara and Guiding Light.

 

He produced those CBS afternoon variety specials and a TV movie 'Solitary Man' as well as the proposed soap Casino.
