Llanfair vs. Cortlandt Manor. Which was more charming?

The Quartermaine Mansion doesn’t compare.

Llanfair kept getting burned down and remodeled.

Llanfair was better because it had that secret room in the basement where Jess locked up Nat.

What could be more charming than old Myra Murdoch skulking about Cortland Manor in the early days, surreptitiously keeping an eye on Nina? (i tried to find a cilp of the lurking but fell short! )

That Myra Murdock was a big lez. Spying on nubile Nina like that.

Cortlandt Manor, of course!

by Anonymousreply 2710/12/2017

Cortlandt Manor kept getting smaller and smaller so all you ever saw in the later years was the den. Same with Chandler Mansion which was just a small living room. It was not my taste and I would not have wanted to live there, but I always though the original version of Linden House with its pinkish stone fit Erica perfectly (esp. before she became a mother).

I met James Mitchell on Fire Island at the peak of AMC. He was such a doll. He bought me and my friend a drink at the Ice Palace

I agree. Palmer had a better yard for fox hunts, but I really would feel more at home in a walk up over Foxy's.

The funniest part is how all the remodels of the various mansion sets always made them look ridiculously smaller. The only one that still felt "grand" was Dorian's house.

by Anonymousreply 4010/13/2017

The foyer at Llanfair looked tiny! Not the entrance hall for a grand mansion. And the curving staircase was also ridiculous. Not the grand staircase of a grand mansion. Consequently, Llanfair felt like a suburban home.

I agree, La Boulé felt more like a mansion. It has an appropriately sized foyer and staircase.

by Anonymousreply 4110/14/2017

Dorian used to make me scrub between the foyer marble pillar case and stair-rails with a can of Ajax and an electric tooth brush!! That Bitch!!!!

by Anonymousreply 4210/14/2017

For whatever reason, Gottlieb's remodel of the Llanfair set made it look like any random middle class home.

The old set with the door upstage was much more believable.

I started watching AMC regularly in about 1983 and watched regularly and then semi-regularly until 2005 and I only recall the den in Cortland Manor and maybe Nina's bedroom for the occasional scene. I do remember when Adam married Erica (the first time?) and he was hiding Stewart up in the attic of the Chandler mansion (did it not have a name?), but beyond that everything that took place in their also seemed to occur in the one living room area. It all seemd fine to me at the time (I was 8/9 years old when I started watching), but watching an ep on Youtube recently I could see how small the sets were and unrealistic the whole thing looked. Also I never seemd to notice that the interiors of the entire town of Pine Valley were all done in the same color scheme.

by Anonymousreply 5310/17/2017

Cortland Manor occasionally use the front foyer with a [I think wood paneled] stair case as well - but it was usually the den. Occasionally there would be a ball room set for one of the mansions for a big party scene.

The Chandler living room was esp. small -- I do remember Erica, during the second marriage, commenting he had done nothing to it since their first marriage and quickly tore it up for a long remodeling project largely to drive him crazy.

Wildwind was another mansion that had multiple rooms initially including a big room where they had a ball when it was revealed his first wife was still alive, but eventually it was just a regular sized living room with an ugly couch.

Fires seemed to be a big deal with OLTL in the early 90s. Lllanfair burnt down (twice), and Dorian set The Banner offices ablaze

by Anonymousreply 6811/25/2017

Were establishing shots of Llanfair ever used at all on the program? Or was OLTL too cheap except a for a few seconds of generic "mansion" shots in the opening.

by Anonymousreply 6911/25/2017

I feel like they had to 'pizaaz' it up on OLTL a lot in the late 80s, especially after they couldn't rely on Kathy Glass astronimcal Q score to keep them relevant.

Agreed, R71.

Sadly, soap threads are no longer interesting on the DL. We used to have clever and witty comments, and some poked fun, but now it's the same really tragic idiots commenting over and over.

The threads have one of six comments on them at any given time.

1. The Glasshole commenting about Kathy Glass

2. Traci Abbott Fat Joke!

3. Eileen Fulton clogged the toilets!

4. Lillian Hayman and her Tercel! OMG being fired is funny. LOLZ Galore!

5. Erika Slezak looks old and/or eats prunes!

6. The Nickname Troll gives some soap character a truly dumb, pointless nickname that no one but he understands and/or cares about.

Victor pushing his wife down the stairs was part of the original plot line of OLTL. Viki witnessing it as a child was the cause of her DID, originally. Later, it was retconned that it was Viki witnessing her father and her best friend in bed caused her DID. Finally, a further retcon was that Viki had been repeatedly raped by her father had caused her DID. And it all happened at Llanfair.

by Anonymousreply 7812/02/2017

Another missed opportunity: they didn't make enough use of the Dorian/Carlotta connection. For many years, Carlotta was just a name Dorian called out when she wanted her maid. By the time we were introduced to the character in person, she no longer worked for Dorian and had her own diner. I can recall only one occasion when they used the connection for story purposes (I think it was the introduction of Dorian's [second] lost daughter) but otherwise nothing except Dorian's period remark about the Vega brothers that "I practically raised those boys" -- something we had never seen.

by Anonymousreply 7912/02/2017

I quite liked their spirit of their friendship the way it was. By the time Carlotta became a full-time character Dorian had become her confidant as well as employer. Their relationship was sweet, but it could have been explored much further. OLTL was more successful than other shows in the way it was able to believably mix up characters from different class structures and economic backgrounds.

Remember when the original Carlotta was a homophobic cunt?

by Anonymousreply 8212/02/2017

Mauceri hasn't worked much since being canned from OLTL. I'm assuming her stupid comments rightfully closed a lot doors for her. She's now teaching acting. Hope no gays study with her and instead with a gay friendly acting coach.

by Anonymousreply 8312/02/2017

They should have had Carlotta marry Clint. Then she would have been a Buchanan and lorded it over Dorian (another missed plot opportunity).

Llanfair during the Dorian years. She even had Herron, the butler. When Vicki moved in she turned it into the home of a middle class frau.

Cortlandt Manor was always a bit "Manderley", even with Opal as chatelaine.
