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).

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 Anonymous||reply 40||10/13/2017|
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.

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. 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.

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 Anonymous||reply 79||12/02/2017|
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.
