Joanna Lee, the EP in 1983 was great for SFT. But she resigned after about 10 months because she hated the pace of daytime. Ratings were good under her reign. Ellen Barrett, her successor, was a nice woman but the cast hated her because she was a lousy producer. Nick Nicholson was even worse. He was good at Edge, but wrong for SFT.

Back in the early 1980s, when I was in high school, I tried watching SFT one summer when it was on NBC. I just couldn't get into it. There were young characters -- Wendy, Suzi (played by cutie pie Cynthia Gibb), and another young woman who had red hair -- but the show did not keep my attention. I did like the music from the show's opening. I thought it was sexy.

Search was a complicated show. It was the last soap to be centered around one character and that is probably why it was never able to distinquish itself against the others. They probably should have followed the Love of Life model and married Jo off and given her some kids and a family or put her in a setting like a college to generate stories or she could have become a Mary Worth type charcter.

Mary Stuart screwed herself at Search. She was jealous that her tv daughter, Patti (then played by Leigh Lassen Natalie Israel - yeah the same person).

Patti had just given birth, and even though Stuart was well old enough to play a grandmother, she wanted no character around to remind anyone. Stupid move that stymied Jo for years.

An interesting comment from A Martinez on the JFP interview.
[quote] Ms. Phelps, the visionary producer of #SantaBarbara, is family to me. She was willing to bet her early career position on making Cruz and Eden a couple –– an extremely bold idea at the time –– and in so doing, changed the course of two actors’ lives. As much as any human being ever, Jill challenged me to get better in the work, and spoke with clarity to the details of getting that done. As the Executive Producer of six network soaps, Jill has won an armful of Emmys. Along the way –– as social media exploded –– she has also been a lightning rod for some truly outrageous criticism. THIS WONDERFUL INTERVIEW provides an opportunity to dive beneath the surface of what we see onscreen; to witness the thinking and machinery behind the decisions that drive our stories.
[quote] More than once, fans of shows I’ve been part of have been super quick to blame somebody for the exit of a beloved character –– even though the person getting blamed may have been working with literally zero control of the situation. This is especially poignant when the actor who leaves has actually forced the show to cut him or her loose… At times –– though both the actor and audience may be on board with a character’s longevity –– economic forces, as written in the balance sheets of massive business interests, dictate who will live and who will die. As I’ve said, Jill is family to me. She has also been my ‘boss’ on two gigs–– Santa Barbara and General Hospital. During GH, the shock of 9/11 pushed ABC into the greatest single quarterly revenue loss in TV history. And it was Jill –– my friend –– who met me in the hall after work one day, looked me in the eye, and fired me. I was making good money, and had thus become a target for elimination in a moment of corporate crisis.

I appreciate A's comments.
Soap watchers don't always realize how micromanaged soaps are and have always been. No soap writer or EP comes to a show wanting to do bad work. In most cases they come to a show because the network or production company has told them they want something. Autonomy is rare, and even that has land mines.
I listen to some of those soap podcasts and follow soap twitter. I respect soap fans and in most cases they know the shows and the history better than anyone. Often, they make great suggestions. They just don't understand the politics of soaps. They don't understand pitching a story for ABC and being told no because of XYZ. They don't understand story meetings with network execs who don't watch the show. They don't understand actors who hate each other and who don't want to work together. They don't understand actor egos. They don't understand budgets.
If you haven't. I recommend watching the Nancy Curlee Locher Room interview. She's too polite to go into certain details, but you can read between the lines. That team succeeded in spite of CBS and PG and politics and in some cases outright sabotage.

It wasn't Olympia Dukakis. It was stage actress Jo Henderson. she played Kate McCleary and as they were expanding the McCleary family (three brothers and on sister) with Jo Henderson as the matriarch of the family. In addition they had her character be Liza's nanny, weaving her into the Sentell plot
So you have two families - the Sentell's & McClearys - and Joe Henderson is involved with both families
I don't know why Mary Stuart would feel threatened. As Jo Henderson had nothing to do but be a sounding board to other people's characters. But Jo Henderson was out after a year.

[quote]How was the response to Jayne Bentzen taking over for Maeve McGuire? Jayne was almost 20 years younger. I can't find anything online about why they decided to de-age the character.
I'm not aware of any official explanation for why they decided to deSORAS Nicole by 20 years. But I speculate it has to do with:
1. Younger actors are less expensive. Jayne Bentzen was 23 in 1978 when she was cast. Maeve McGuire was 41 in 1978. Show left the role open for a long time before recasting in 1978, hoping McGuire would come back after some time away. McGuire would have been at least three times as expensive as newbie Bentzen. Probably even more expensive than that.
2. Soaps tend to like the ladies in a romantic pairing to be younger than the man. Bentzen was 14 years younger than Joel Crothers. Meanwhile, IRL McGuire was only 4 years older than Joel Crothers, but when Nicole was with Miles, Nicole looked older than than Miles.

I've heard the tales of his JFP affair, but honestly other than strong friendships with the likes of Anna Hollbrook, I don't recall any woman he was said to be dating. He pings for me, bigtime.

At Forsyth's Linkedin page, he refers to himself as a "semi-retired photographer" under the business name "Artful Photography" (since 2004) located in Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania. But the photo he has of himself there is from a long-ago Law & Order episode. He seemed to mainly do photographs for actors. (He responded to a post by Mark Pinter within the last year.) .. Over at Model Mayhem his photographer's page lists him as "David 'Doc' Forsyth". It says, " David currently resides in a quiet town on the Delaware river in Pennsylvania with his amazing and ever-faithful side-kick, "Buster" the wonder dog.

As mentioned on the other thread:
[quote] The actor who left was Roscoe Born. He did actually work again, including a long-ish stint on Y&R, DAYS and a return to One Life to Live on ABC, the same network he walked from. As I understand it, the storyline with his character was about to turn ugly - the character, Jim, was going to be revealed as a pedo, and Born just said "Sorry, this is horrifying and I cannot do it" and walked. And apparently, the middle of that scene (as written) was where he left, so yes, they totally had to pick up where he last filmed a complete scene. It was not a super established character and I think once David Forsyth (actor 2) came in, they played out whatever and then wrote or killed that character off.
Noting here as not noted in the initial post on the other thread that he eventually played Tom Fisher on Y&R who was abusive to Kevin, and also played Mitch Laurence on OLTL who technically was a statutory rapist with Natalie, I think? But I think they were going full hey-little-kid-want-some-candy pedo with this Jim character and that was something he was unwilling to play.

R145 when you learn about soap production, then you have the right to be indignant
You do realize that soaps are now shot by set - meaning they no longer do one episode a day. Everything is now filmed out of sequence, where they film "by set"
so they film segments from 5 to 6 shows all in one day, as long as they are on the same set. That way money saved as they don't have to strike a set, then reassemble 2 days later. So if one scene is stretched over two shows, and it is on the same set. They shoot all of those scenes for the two shows in one day.
Again if you were knew anything about soap production, you wouldn't make a fool out of yourself.

I think what R145 was saying is that the Roscoe/David switch didn't happen during the same Act.

No, R173, I’m saying that the transition from Born to Forsyth happened on separate days.
I think the only time a character switched from one actor to another IN THE SAME SCENE ON THE SAME DAY was Mark Valley going into the shower as Jack Devereaux in Days of our Lives and Matt Ashford stepping out.
The only time that’s ever happened. Period. And it was only done as a gag, not because Valley abruptly quit and they hadn’t completed the scene.
|by Jo||reply 182||July 14, 2021 1:07 AM|
R182 it happened on All My Children as well. If you are such a Soap Expert you should know which character it was
|by Jo||reply 183||July 14, 2021 1:18 AM|
Days transitioned the actors who played Jack Deveraux in a 1997 shower scene, going from Mark Valley to Steven Wilder. Valley started the shower but when it was over its was Wilder who came out of the shower.
AMC transitioned the actors who played Babe Carey in a 2007 scene with mama Crystal hugging her daughter, going from Alexa Havens to Amanda Baker. Alexa started the hug with Crystal, but it was Amanda who pulled away from her.
Both of those scenes were pre-planned as a way to transition between actors. Both actors were on set that day to film the transition scene and filmed their scenes one after another.
In the case of All My Children in 1997 with Roscoe Born departing abruptly and David Foresyth taking over the role of Jim Thomason, the two actors were never on the set at the same time. Hell, it likely took several days to line up the replacement actor. The scene may have been edited together to look it was seemless, but behind the scenes, it was anything but seamless.

Julia Barr sure had a run of bad luck with love interests and recasts there for a while. Even though everyone watching knew Brooke belonged with Adam, they kept giving him younger wives, and throwing Brooke up against new men…The first Pierce was fired after he sexually harassed a fan, then some other guy briefly played him until they brought in Maxwell Caulfield. I don’t remember how that fizzled out. Then the whole Roscoe Born/David Forsyth thing. They brought in super hot David Beecroft (he should have been a star) as a priest and were heading towards a Thornbirds thing…then it turned out he was really Stan, the drunk driver who killed her daughter Laura!

I don't know anything about music rights, but if you write an original theme for a TV show, doesn't that eventually become the property of the production?

Dropping Eileen’s guarantee saved the show a ton of money in plumbing, wardrobe, and reshooting fees.

Rob Mounsey, composer of the 1980s and 1990s GL themes, also wrote this:

Rob Mounsey was/is a much bigger deal than I ever knew back when I knew he wrote the GL theme.
He was a big player in a lot of bands, I think he toured w/Steely Dan.

Talk about irony-
Elliot Lawrence, who composed the theme for GL in 1983 (for Score productions) recently died. I saw a post about him on a theater chat site.

Rest in peace. Hopefully the rumors of those music masters being thrown out are not true.

The obit doesn’t mention the GL theme but it should. For my money the best melody ever created for a soap theme.

R238: That's a coincidence. Irony is Kathleen Turner and Kim Zimmer both getting fat even though only one of them made an impact in movies.

He did the arrangements, he didn't write the song.

He wrote the fabulous Edge them and the World Turns On and On theme, my favorite of the ATWT themes.
He was in his late 50s/early 60s when he wrote those.....good stuff.

Once again, he just arranged it. Jack Cortner wrote the 1980s ATWT theme.

This list of credits should be pretty comprehensive.

Elliot Lawrence did a couple of great cues for Another World back in the 90s. I wish those were available for purchase.

You know this for a fact, R241? Then who was the composer, then?

Snaggletooth Wright on the Locher Room next week

Elliot Lawrence composed the second theme for Texas (which I remember ended up being used for an insurance commercial). At that time Texas’ executive producer was Gail Kobe. So when she went to GL in 1983 why wouldn’t it be Lawrence who composed the new theme for her?
R241, either provide proof or shut the fuck up.

AW changed its opening in Sept 1981. Texas also changed its opening music a few weeks after that. About that same time Edge of Night got a new opening. And GL got its disco themed opening somewhere in that time frame.
Since these were all P&G shows, I'd hazard a guess that P&G started contracting with a new company at that time.

Speaking of soap music, I didn't realize that Another World was still using organ music in 1972. That surprised me. Did all the PG shows make the switch at the same time?
