Island Kingdom on Tanquir

Thinking about vacationing on Tanquir but don't know that much about it.

Is Cecile still the Queen of Tanquir?

I hear Grant Harrison was hiding out there for a while. Is he still there? Knowing Grant, he's likely plotting to overthrow the king.

I also heard Quinton McCord got into a big showdown with Silas Crocker on Tanquir at some archaeological dig. But that was years and years ago, before Quint was even married to Nola.

What else can you tell me about Tanquir? Is it worth the trouble to going?

by Anonymousreply 9912 hours ago

Back when I was working in Houston for my late Uncle, Alex Wheeler, I was briefly involved with Princess Jasmine of Tanquir.

This would have been before Cecile became the Queen. Wonder how Jasime and Cecile got along.

If only I'd gone to visit Cecile in Tanquir rather than going to jail!

Quinton and I have enjoyed the times we visited Tanquir. Except for that one time Silas Crocker tried to kill us.

Essay question:

Who was the better Queen of an island nation?

Queen Cecile of Tanquir

Princess Katherine (Reva) of San Cristobel

Cecile couldn't give the king an heir whereas Princess Katherine did!

Donna sums up, my girl, Cecile quite nicely.

While her run as Brand New Sexy Donna was a disaster, Philece was still a good actress. Too bad she didn't get on another soap after AW.

Philece likely would have been great is some other role on AW, but she was wrong for the role of Donna.

That dumb queen Nelson Aspen is acting as though Philece was the best Donna ever.

There will only ever be one Donna Love for me, and that's Anna Stuart (who also happens to be a fellow native of West Virginia).

Likewise, I prefer Nancy Frangione's Cecile to Susan Keith's. Of course (and thankfully), it helps that Frangione's Cecile is the longer-running. My mother watched this one, and "Days". And even when I was less than ten years old, I LOVED the Cecile storylines...the duplicitous, gold-digging tramp!

by Anonymousreply 1607/03/2021

I used to love how Alma Rudder would call Cecile, "Cecil". I liked the Cecile/Cass/Felicia/Wallingford years. I loved the way she went after Blaine and then the mess she made of Jamie's life was great too. That Jamie Frame was always being duped by women.

Alma Rudder was one of the few bright spots in Bay City in 1982.

1982 and 1987 are probably the two worst years for AW, at least until the late 90s when it was on its way out.

JFP knew that Beverlee was a LAZY employee and half assed her performances in her final year on the show. Marj Dusay was brilliant casting and brought everyone in the cast together because she worked hard and never complained about anything and everything like Bev.

by Anonymousreply 3007/08/2021

Bev was quite the diva. She left Texas because she was over worked. She left GL because she was over worked. But, daytime was good enough for her when she needed insurance and did a few days on GH to get that insurance. Selfish of her.

Eve Guthrie was totally unnecessary but I disagree about Stacey Winthrop. She was the sister of one of the male leads and if she had been cast with a strong and appealing actress then Stacey and Jamie could have been the Tom and Margo of Another World.

Hilary Edson and Terry Davis had similar problems as Stacey - they were both fairly soft, sweet ingenue types playing a spunky shark of a lawyer. I preferred Edson, to be honest, but wonder what someone who could convey more chutzpah might have done with the part.

I loved recording AW when it was on SoapNet so I could fast-forward all scenes featuring the deadly dull Michael Hudson/Stacey Winthrop pairing. I only saw them when Donna swept in to play shrieking harpy (because I adore Anna Stuart).

Edson was a generic piece of fluff. I thought Davis had more strength but she was still miscast, too.

I think Davis was appreciably better but she wouldn't have worked at all in the "Beauty and the Beast" story they foisted on Edson. Not that the story worked well with Edson.

R62 The Cory mansion had a 25ish year run.

The Snyder farm was also 25 years, as was Lucinda's place.

I'd say the oldest set might be the Bauer house.

by Anonymousreply 67Last Wednesday at 1:31 PM

Yes, the Cory living room set would be the longest running on AW First appeared in 1975 soon after Rachel and Mac married. Last scene of the series took place in that room.

However, it should be noted that the show completely redid the Cory set in 1987. Original set had darker paneling and did not include the foyer or the staircase.

by Anonymousreply 68Last Wednesday at 2:20 PM

Wasn’t Fashions being used in ATWT from 1981 ish to the end? Or did they stop using it before that.

And Company was used from 1982/83 until 2009?

by Anonymousreply 69Last Wednesday at 2:42 PM

Company had a long initial run, but it sort of merged with the Cooper Diner and had a few different looks/lives. It was one of the sets in the last few years where, once they had some sets in Peapack, they built a permanent set in studio......that one, the Spaulding mansion, the courthouse and a few others were all built in studio. Point is, it looked very different.

Fashions, I think, looked pretty similar all throughout its existence.

A think a contender is the Stewart house on ATWT. I'm not sure when it was first used, but you can see it in the clips of Dan's funeral (late 70s) and Susan still lived it in in the 00s. (It became Susan's when Ellen abandoned Dani and Susan moved in to take care of her...)

Reading Parker Posey's memoir and this is the sole mention of ATWT:

[quote] My granny and my aunt Toni-Anne were much more grounded. They’d eat on TV trays in the bedroom and watch “the stories.” When I was on As the World Turns, it made them very proud. “You got my widow’s peak,” Granny would say, before talking about how handsome Holden was. Holden was the hunk on the show, played by Jon Hensley. “He’s really nice, too, Granny,” I’d say. “You’d like him.” I told her how, on my first day of work, the woman who played my aunt Barbara said, “Be careful who you share your secrets with because these walls have ears.” Colleen Zenk turned on the waterworks like nothing I’ve seen in my life. Granny loved that dish. As the World Turns was one of the earliest soaps—its first airing was shot live in 1956. She loved Eileen Fulton, who played Lisa Grimaldi, and Helen Wagner, who played Nancy Hughes, both of whom were there in the beginning. I’d tell her how classy and nice they both were in real life, since they’d kept her company as she took to bed and martyred herself in her forty years of heartbreak. I told her how nice the producer of the show, Laurie Caso, was when he asked if I’d like to get out of my contract early because they needed to put Holden in a coma before Labor Day (his love story with Lily was huge and they needed to focus on that). I told her how Laurie hugged me like a dad and was so sweet that I cried. She loved all that.
