I had Detective scribbled in the margin of my notes, but it could have been for the name above or below it.  I'm sure you're right. I'll fix it and double check my notes and move Det. to the right name. 

I couldn't recall if Chris was perhaps an undercover detective working on the film. I believe Falzone was a contract player and I was always surprised that the character was written out so quickly.

There has been a lot of discussion about Mrs. Yost on The Edge of Night and who played her.   I remember Mrs. Yost, and she was played by the late Selma Diamond.   I don't argue that Norma Connelly did not play the character as well, but I missed her episodes if she did.


Also, I was about to add that Elizabeth Franz had played Wilma Marlow #2 on All My Children.   However, I then realized that her look-alike (at least to me) Ruby Holbrook had played Wilma #2.   Jo Henderson (who had created the role) later returned to it, and the actress who had said "It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature" played her in the end of the run.

I just finished season 6 of MP, and she makes an appearance at Billy's wedding to Samantha, which was in the first half of S6, so that must have been... 1997?

Dr Joyce Brothers appeared on ATWT in 1981, according to the 40th anniversary book. 


Is Kurt McKinney  really not listed? I swear I've checked the listing twice this morning, but don't see him 

Fixed, and KM will be included tonight. 

Thanks @P.J.

I am sure that STAATS COTSWORTH appeared on Somerset.


My memory is not perfect, but I believe that he played a physician who treated Missy Matthews (probably when she had drunk some un-pasteurized milk at the carnival.)



Added and will be added to the cast list as well.   


Thanks, @danfling
