GH

Gloria Monty first episodes Jan 78 -  the hour long shows she insisted be retaped. Would love to see what was noticeable onscreen straightaway as she was still using original sets.

That would be interesting.  She brought on the rounded hub nurses station and hallways off of it didn’t she?
 

I know this is in no way a possibility- but wouldn’t it be interesting to see her shows and the ones she threw out and re-taped the scripts?

What was special about the final? Of course, any moment of that show I would have loved to see!

I don't know much about the story sequence for WTHI, so the final episode which would give way to Y&R seems like a good place to start! 😉

OLTL- Nancy Pinkerton’s Dorian killing Victor Lord.

I also would love to see the original Victoria Lord, and Carla and Sadie reunited.

 

AW- just more of the original actors in the Rachel/Steve/Alice storyline.


DAYS- More of Susan Flannery as Laura, and Denise Alexander as Susan when she was scheming.

 

Y&R- Kay finding out Jill and Philip, and also driving him over a cliff.

 

GH- early Lesley stuff

I watched (what I believe) is the only surviving episode of OLTL with Gillian Spencer as Viki and Nicki at UCLA a few months ago. They played an eerie theme when Viki closes her eyes and becomes Nicki. It also seemed that everyone knew about Nicki to some degree. Gillian Spencer was much more fragile and icy than Erika Slezak's Viki.

How fascinating.  Because feom

what I have seen of her on ATWT and AMC, she was much less icy and uptight than the Viki that Slezak was playing by the 1980’s on.

 

I loved her as Daisy.  She was a pretty good script writer if I remember correctly!

I wish I could've witnessed the Jonah Lockwood arc on EON. Seeing as this story played around the time of Manson murders and the actor somewhat having that similar look, it must've been scary to see in real time. 

 

AW: The Sven arc. From reading "Eight Years in Another World," this story seemed to be ahead of its time. I would love to see the scene where Dennis and Jamie finding the remains in the boathouse. 

 

SFT: Jennifer Pace falling through the glass door. I've heard many people rave about how good it was, and I wanna see it.

Well, this is scary. 

 

I have seen basically everything mentioned in this thread, which means...I have spent my entire life glued to the tube 

 

And I am ancient AF.

 

LOL.

She was rather icy (gathered, composed) in the episode I watched at Paley, as well. There's some not-so-great audio of her Niki on YouTube, but even that little bit is a treasure for those of us who never got the chance to see her. She seems to be affecting sort of a Bronx accent which is fun and not at all what I'd expected. I would love to see more of Gillian in those first years.

 

I'd also love to see a scene Erika Slezak described in an interview... Viki was ill and bedridden while Dorian gave a glamorous party downstairs at Llanfair. Dorian unveiled a portrait of herself above the mantle, hanging in place of Eugenia's. Much to the surprise of the guests and to the chagrin of Dorian, Viki makes a breathtaking entrance to the party descending the Llanfair staircase in a flowing white gown, stealing Dorian's show.

Did you mean to say Lee Randolph's death? Missy Matthews never died.

 

Yeah. I was half-asleep. Thanks for catching that.

Actually, that is true. The soaps' glory years were truly in the 1960s and (particularly) 1970s. I am very grateful I saw daytime drama at its finest.

Oh to build a time machine so we can go back and watch those entire years in full! :D

Watching the likes of Bill Bell, Agnes Nixon and Claire Labine launching their own soaps was thrilling. Not to mention the miraculous turnaround of GH under Gloria Monty and Douglas Marland, Harding Lemay's AW, Henry Slesar at the top of the game on TEON, etc.
