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 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.

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.

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.

Finally, a further retcon was that Viki had been repeatedly raped by her father had caused her DID. And it all happened at Llanfair.

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.

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.

Not that streaming was rare than, but it is a much more common way to watch programs now than it was five years ago. It is possible it was just a little too ahead of this time.

Please pull up a chair and get a tissue.
My Dear Friends, The older I get, the faster time goes. It seems as if we just had Christmas, and yet, here we are again. It has been a good year for me. I was getting quite used to being at home, sleeping later, doing my chores, spending so much time with my family and our dogs and cats and generally, just enjoying myself.
Then, in September, I met some new agents who said they would like to represent me. I thought they were so terrific and enthusiastic, so, having nothing to lose, I agreed and signed on with them, which turned out to be a very lucky move for me.
In the middle of November, we were up at our house in Vermont when I got an email from them asking me to audition for a guest star role on a new FOX medical drama, entitled, The Resident. The script was so good and the role so interesting that I immediately, with GREAT help from our son Michael, who happened to be with us, and my wonderful husband, Brian, taped the audition scenes and Michael sent them off to my agents.
The next day, I got a call that I had been chosen to play the part and had to be ready to fly to Atlanta, Georgia the next Monday. Needless to say, my whole life turned upside down … but in a really good way. I spent 10 days in Atlanta and finished shooting just before the 3 inch snowstorm hit that shut down the city and the airport. But I was safely home by then.
I had a wonderful experience learning a whole new way of shooting television. It was quite different from the way we used to shoot OLTL. In Daytime TV, we had to put out 5, one hour shows a week, so there was very little time for anything. We taped each scene, hopefully in one go, and immediately moved on the next one. Nighttime TV is completely different, because they spend so much time on lighting and camera work and shooting each scene from so many different angles. And the end result is a product of the time put in.
So now I am in work mode again. If there is more to come, I will be delighted, but, if there isn’t then I am very grateful for having had this opportunity.
I am in episode 9 of the series which begins airing on Jan 21st on FOX, with the second episode airing the next day, Jan 22nd . So assuming there are no preemptions or – God forbid – disasters, my episode should air on March 12th. As the day approaches, we will give you an update on the airdate, in case you want to watch. Or you can watch the series from the start on Jan 21st. I think it’s a very good show with a wonderful cast. The cast and crew were delightful and so friendly and professional, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
The world has become so much more difficult to navigate and I am so grateful for my family who after all, are the most important people in my life. The fact that I can always come home and they are there for me makes each day a blessing.
As requested, I have included a recipe for a delicious and so-easy-to-make hors d’oeuvre, in case anyone wants to try it. Keep it in the freezer and use as needed.
Once again, my sincerest thanks and gratitude go out to Kit, AJ and of course to Walter for their continued work on the newsletters and for the fan club. Lord knows how many years it has been (Walter knows) and I am indeed so thankful. I want to wish every one of you a wonderful holiday and a very Happy and Healthy New Year.
With love and all good wishes, Erika

Here is Miss Glass' annual holiday letter to her fans.
2017 was an amazing year filled with wonderful moments and lots of good cheer. Friends and family are well, as am I. I continue to turn down numerous primetime and film roles, because as you all remember my mantra, “if it’s not on the page, I’m not on the stage.” They just aren’t writing compelling roles for women these days. I mean, I could take a throwaway part on some random show to keep my health benefits active, but that is unfair to you - my legions of teen fans who continue to support and care about me. You won't see me slumming as patient #5 on some rinky dink hospital show. My craft is too important me and you, my loving fans, are too important to me to give you anything less than what you deserve. The desperation of some aging actresses makes me sad.
I am looking forward to all the wonders that 2018 will bring. If I choose to accept a new role on television or in film, I will be sure to let you know. May the peace of the season be with you and every day after.
With love and much respect,

Kate Collins is shown as both Natalie and Janet on the left. The guy next to Candy was her first post Tad husband, Scott or Steve or...something. I was a senior in high school that year and missed a lot.

Cady ^^ Autocorrect.
|by Anonymous||reply 134||01/21/2018|
The guy next to Cady was Craig Lawson - her husband who was having an affair with Gloria before she had her rape redemption and was a bad girl. I think he initially was scamming her but fell in love with her. He was not around very long.
The woman next to Trevor is the first Arlene (his sister - Hayley's mom). She was not bad, but the person who played her later was fantastic. I think the guy was a doctor -- white had character. He was eventually paired with an assistant DA who was later terrorized by John Wesly Shipp. They were both let go because they were boring.

The fabulous Arlene was Olivia Birkelund. They made a big mistake in not keeping her around longer.
Mark La Mura was married to a woman for many years up until the time of his death. She was an actress also. He did some suggestive photos like the one above very early in his career.

At some point when they redid the set for Llanfair it looked more like an upper middle class large house as opposed to an estate or a mansion.
|by Anonymous||reply 153||01/26/2018|
I like this era best. Llanfair looked like old money but not too big, or showy. Very Film Noir. When they tried to compete with Dallas in the mid 80s the sets became sprawlingly large but it also looked like a soundstage, also the lighting was HARSH in that era with every square inch of the set radiated in brightness.

Of all the incarnations of Niki Smith, I liked the earliest ones better. The one who got involved with Vinnie Wolek had the element of shock. The version of Niki who fell for Harry O'Neill (the Frank Converse version) was romantic and dramatic. The later Niki's (i.e., without the red wig) could be entertaining but were never part of a compelling story.

R169 I agree with your assessment. And OLTL was fire on a lot of cylinders when Niki came back in the 80's. I couldn't wait to get home everyday watch the VCR that day. And with no spoilers, other than the Love in the Afternoon promos, everything was a surprise. I was so stoked when Niki came back. She had only been see briefly during the Karen trial, or earlier around that time.

Jill Larson and Dorothy Lyman's were two entirely different characters. Larson's Opal was an elderly zany hick, Lyman's Opal was a white trash grifter, she was funny, but far more sinister. They completely defanged Larson's version of Opal, which is fine and I liked the character enough, but there's no way Lyman's Opal would have ever been or become Erica's best friend and confidant.
|by Anonymous||reply 172||04/29/2018|
Larson't Opal was darker the first year when she was teaming against Palmer to break up Tad and Dixie's marriage, but then they changed her to the lovable kook. The only time she showed her darker side again was during the Kevin and Kelsey story line where she did not approve of his gayness.
I liked Larson's Opal, but I did have a hard time swallowing the story line that between Jenny and Tad she ran away from Ray, and lived with and had a baby with a black man. It does not jive with how Opal was when she was on the show in the 80's.

The brilliant Gillian Spencer was the first Vicki/Nikki and she was a goddess. Slee not so much. Slee plays to the balcony and that kind of acting, unfortunately as we witnessed also with ham bone Judith Light, is what appeals to Emmy voters. It's easy to vote for the OBVIOUS. Lucci had multi layered performances over the years that were ignored because someone put out a good reel.

I loved AMC, but at least by the late 80's the mansions were a bit overwhelming. I would say the Chandler mansion was the worst. It was a small room with a small staircase. Courtland Manor had a little more character, but in the end the scenes were largely in the den. Wildwind briefly looked like a gothic mansion, but then was largely a living room with an ugly couch. Tad and Dixie's mansion (he had the Orsini money by then) looked like it could have been the rec room of a frat house. Phoebe's house was cool, but they stopped using it not that long after I started watching. I seem to remember Brooke having a similar house year's later in the late 90's.
The original version of Erica's Linden House would not have been my personal choice, but I do think it was a good fit for Erica and it was different than the generic mansion which is how it appeared once it was remodeled. She then had a Victorian House which was cool the first time it was shown, with the big leaded windows, nice stair case etc. They then "feminized" it with way too much cheap pastel paint and furniture. One of the boards called it the citrus bordello. Chris Stamp (I have blocked a lot of him out of my mind) then built her a pent house. I would have liked it for myself, but did not seem like anything Erica would have chosen. It also showed the Pine Valley skyline which was symbolic for the show's losing its identity. Her last place was kind of cool and seemed a bit like the original Linden House.
Towards the end, they simply had half the town staying at the Valley Inn, so they could reuse the same set.

That was Linden House. That was the one I would not have wanted for myself, but thought was perfect for Erica and was different than the generic soap mansion. After she moved back after stabbing Dimitri they remodeled it and I thought it lost a bit of its unique look.

Wasn't Mike Roy supposed to be the love of Erica's life? I remember they used to hit that narrative hard in the '80s after the characters death, it felt very similar to the old Liz Taylor/Mike Todd 'love of her life' narrative, which since Taylor's death has been by Burton being the love of her life.

He was definitely played off as one of her great loves, and she would sometimes have a moment where she would be haunted by whether anyone else would understand her. They messed that up when they brought him back from the dead for a short stint to basically her and Jack, for what was maybe the third of fourth time. I saw his death scene on youtube, not sure how he was not dead-dead (same with Jessie, where Angie laid on his growing cold body).
The Mike Roy recast had to be one of the stranger ones, and I can see why, like fake Natalie, he did not last long.
She had good chemistry with Jack, but they worked best when he was not as Dudley Doright and it was more of an impulsive affair. If Nader had not had his issues and stayed on the show, I am thinking Dimitri would have been considered the one. Jack probably ended up being considered her great love in the end, largely due to perseverance.
Honorable mention would probably go to Nick Davis. She and Adam were great together, but romantically it was pretty one-sided.
Of course, her true love really was herself.
