In 2006, Barbara bought Casey and Gwen tickets to attend the "Acid Ran" concert in Chicago, so they could check out potential bands for Lisa to book at her club.

When Casey had to convince Gwen to go with him (she and Will were newlyweds and Gwen didn't think she should leave her husband) Casey didn't understand the issue and said, "IT'S ONLY AN HOUR AWAY."

They took a bus to get there and back.

Donna Love could see Chicago from her penthouse.

Salem was also set in the region. When seeking a babysitter for Belle, Marlena said she had to look as far as Chicago to find one.

When Jeanne Cooper died, an article in Salem newspaper said "Genoa City Morns the Loss of Beloved Citizen" or something like that. It seemed a very respectful way to tie the shows together.

Irna lived in Chicago , as did Bill Bell, so she set all her shows in Illinois. The Bells had a vacation home in Lake Geneva, and they passed through Genoa City, WI, to get there; which is how Y&R came to be set there.

Agnes Nixon lived on the Main Line in Philadelphia, so Corinth, Llanview and Pine Valley were located there.

All true, though Genoa City was really just the borrowing of a name, as the GC shown on YR is radically different than the real one.

When Genoa City became more of an urban setting, the show would often use Pittsburgh for its atmosphere shots and location shoots.

In the very first episode of Y&R, we see the type of small Wisconsin town Genoa City was originally envisioned to be as Brad Eliot is being driven into town by a truck driver who'd picked him on the road.

And in the next scene, Sally McGuire peers out a window and reinforces this idea when she bemoans what "a drag it is being stuck in a place like Genoa City."

At least she had Snapper's hot cock to entertain her.

She mentions Marland but also a "toxic culture"....but I think most of her time on screen at ATWT was before Marland came onboard. Or a big chunk of it, anyway. ATWT was trying anything to stay afloat before he got there.

[quote[ “We were the kids,” Pinkins says. “[Late Head Writer] Doug Marland was a great, great writer, but there was a culture there that was incredibly toxic. It was like the writers were reading all the soap mags and finding out what was going on in people’s real lives and putting that into the show. It was very tense.”

R34, great question! Springfield, at various times, had beaches, lakes, rivers, and sometimes seemed to be close to an ocean (which baffled me).

I was the biggest fan of GL for many, many years. In 1987, when I was a senior in high school, I met a guy who had been offered a writing job on the show. He ultimately turned it down due to a writers’ strike. However, the show had given him a lot of background info including a map of Springfield, etc. He gave me all of the stuff the show had furnished. It was all ruined when my parents’ basement flooded.

Alan Locher really does seem to be a nice man but good god his interviewing style was never as maddening as it was with Maeve Kinkaid. His relentless inability to ask follow-up questions was particularly noticeable. OK, so William Roerick, it turned out, knew Kinkaid’s parents. But did that mean Kinkaid had actually met and socialized with Roerick before they worked together on GL? We’ll never know. And what were the “astonishing things” Roerick did for them? Jesus. It was still nice to to see Kinkaid again and we even got a glimpse of Meryl’s brother Harry who stepped in to fix a technical glitch. Locher was wise not to bring up Paul Rauch’s name. And we got further proof that Kathleen Widdoes was really quite the perv on set. I liked her saying that Vanessa being hooked on pills was her least favorite storyline. It made Vanessa weak and pathetic and I remember Billy telling her that. And so ironic since Jordan Clarke was an addict himself.

He's not getting paid for this. He's doing this for his love of soaps. And for the fame it's bringing him.

No, he's not a great interviewer and misses so many follow up questions. But no one else is doing it.

If someone more skilled at interviewing with the connections he had came along, that person would easily usurp Locher.

David Kreizman was HW of GL for the final five years. If you want to blame a writer for the demise of GL, Kreizman is the one you should be pointing a finger at.

Jill Lorie Hurst was merely on the writing team. However, in the final year, they promoted her to the HW team, which at that point consisted of four people.

Jill is the one who pitched the Otalia story and oversaw it's execution. Jill is also the one who convinced Grant to return as Phillip. She also oversaw most of the storylines in those final 4-5 months, making sure they had heart and invoked the show's long history.

Otalia actually stabilized ratings and was attracting new fans to GL, but the cancellation announcement killed any hope of ratings rising, which I believe they would have.

Every day, she would watch the show. Before I started kindergarten, when I was home all day, I would watch with her. I remember her explaining some of the situations to me, and certain characters were like real people we knew (Lucinda, John, Hoden, Lily, Emma, Margo, etc). Emma in particular was like an old family friend. For a couple of years, ATWT was my mom's and my "thing."

I recently found a bunch of old episodes from the mid-to-late 80s on YouTube and watching them took me right back to those early days with my mom (who is rapidly declining with Alzheimer's). It's a way for me to reconnect with her now, even though she's basically gone. I doubt she appreciated then, nearly 40 years ago, how meaningful those moments would be for me all these years later.

Finally got around to watching Maeve Kinkaid's interview in the Locher Room. It was a very good interview. Great to hear Maeve's story. Alan actually did some research beforehand and it helped the interview tremendously.

Maeve made a comment about her Another World time that I found provocative. She said the AW was expanded from 60 to 90 minutes because of Beverlee McKinsey.

While I'm not disputing that Iris was terribly popular, I'm not sure NBC would expand the show purely because of Iris.

In 1975, no one thought you could do a 60-minute soap five days a week. Many thought AW would fall flat on its face, but AW proved you could do it and the 60 minute format became the standard.

So, four years later, the idea of doing a 90-minute of a single soap wasn't completely outrageous. It was a bold experiment that ultimately proved that 90 minutes five days a week was too much.

Of course, AW was not at the top of its game in 1979 like it had been in 1975. Harding Lemay was suffering from burnout and wasn't coming up with his best stories.

I wonder if it has been General Hospital that expanded to 90 minute a day in 1979 if would have succeeded. GH was the show at the top of its game at that point, so if any soap would have worked as 90 minutes a day, it would have been GH.

As far as Iris goes, 1979 was not an especially good year for her. Not a lot of great Iris stories there.

Mac and Rachel were divorcing in 1979 and Mac married Janice, who Iris adored. So, not a lot of opportunities for Rachel-Iris scenes.

They also had nefarious Kurt Laverty flirting with Iris. But Kurt was married to a frail wife June Laverty (played by Geraldine Court) so it created an awkward situation.

Iris was also opposed to her son Dennis getting involved with newly arrived in town Cecile (played by Susan Keith). So, Iris hired Phillip Lyons to romance Cecile and break up Cecile and Dennis.

By the end of 1979, Beverlee McKinsey was out with a broken collar bone, so Carole Shelley subbed as Iris for about three months.

by Anonymousreply 187July 13, 2024 1:48 AM

Hey, Vivien. Where did you get the idea that June Laverty was “frail”? She wasn’t frail at all, at least that’s not how Geraldine Court played her. She was an upscale, sophisticated New York bitch, sort of an Iris but not as cunning (or cunting).

Its well known that Donna Swajeski used much of Harding Lemay's Bible when she took over as HW after Lemay quit in fall 1988.

But what about Tom King who took over as HW in 1979 when Lemay quit/was fired?

Lemay's last script aired on May 11, 1979, according to the AW Homepage. And King took over immediately after that. So, how long did King work off of Lemay's Bible before his own stories kicked in.

For example, Cecile (Susan Keith) arrived on screen June 6, 1979. She likely was part of Lemay's Bible.

But Mitch Blake didn't arrive in town until Oct 5, 1979. Was Mitch part of Lemay's Bible, or was he completely a Tom King creation?

Was the "Harry Must Die" storyline of Janice poisoning Mac the brainchild of Lemay or King? It kicked off in fall 1979 with the arrival of Mitch and culminated in March 1980 with the St. Croix remote.

What do people think?

R197 Based on what Lemay wrote in his book, I don't think a lot of what aired after he left was his work. He was very against the sort of hyped melodrama that played out - he did not like writing the Sven/Helga story, though it was one of the more popular ones that played out. He may have had a role in creating Cecile and especially Janice (since she was a Frame) and may have also had a hand in developing Mitch Blake but I don't think he wrote much, if any, of the Harry Must Die inspired story.

A hack like Tom King seemed much more likely to create the Harry Must Die storyline than Harding Lemay.

by Anonymousreply 201July 14, 2024 1:34 AM

I would say the Lemay storylines played out through the summer of 1979.

By fall 1979, NBC and P&G would have realized the 90 minute format wasn't going to work and likely was trying to find a way to get out of the 90 minutes while also saving face. They realized they could cut the show by to 60 minutes by doing a spin-off soap.

So, I'd say everything that was done from fall 1979 onward was what Tom King created. Or possibly Lemay's ideas reshaped to meet the needs of a show that was getting ready to spin-off characters to Texas.

So, I would say all this is Tom King's creations/plottings:

Russ Matthew returned to town in early Oct 1979 (after being written off a year earlier) to join Dr. Kevin Cook (Lee Patterson) , who would arrive in Bay City two weeks later, in a cardiac practice. Kevin's wife Reena (Carla Borelli) would arrive a month later. Kevin and Reena would of course be sent back to Houston with the debut of Texas in August 1980.

Tracey DeWitt would come back to town in Nov 1979, played this time by Y&R's Janice Lynde, and start a romance with Russ.

Nurse Kit Farrell (Halloway) arrived in November 1979, soon to be followed by her Aunt Miranda, her father, brother and sister.

As mentioned above, Mitch Blake arrived in Bay City in early Oct 1979 to open the campus disco. Mitch started plotting with Janice immediately. First references to Harry Must Die started soon after he arrived.

by Anonymousreply 202July 14, 2024 1:43 AM

The stunt casting of former Y&R stars Espy and Lynde seems like a Rauch forced move, not a LeMay creation. Lynde inherited an old character that had been played by Caroline McWilliams, so Tracy DeWitt had to be a LeMay creation. Tracy was just a dull socilaite when McWilliams played her, and to appease Lynde she was suddenly a nightclub singer, It didn't matter who/what that character was, she was a real bore.

HARRY MUST DIE and its aftermath was all the show had for a while and Douglass Watson was given some of the best material of his career. he received an Emmy. Poor old Mack finding out on the witness stand that Rachel had slept with Mitch and Matthew wasn't his was an instance of brilliance in a very troubled show.

Later years were just as troubled but other standouts like the recast Nancy Frangione as Cecile seemed to keep things afloat. That period of Cecile as BIG BITCH OF THE SHOW was wildly entertaining, she even had a huge catfight with Blaine.

I was screaming at Alan when he failed to ask her more questions about her friendship with Doug Marland and his likes and dislikes. She said Marland adored John Wesley Shipp but I wanted to know so much more.

She talked about a somewhat bizarre friendship with Paul Rauch and Alan didn't even begin to ask enough questions about that.
