Just saw this last night.


This was a fun one. I just love these soaps from this period. Sure, they may seem a bit hokey, but if you enjoy soap operas, this was fun. A bit like "General Hospital" which came to television a year later.
Loved seeing all of these actors and actresses. Some, just starting out, but who would make names for themselves.

I watched it last night. I thought it was an old soap opera at first. It was pretty entertaining. I loved how they all smoked. One scene with the baby in the apartment, everybody had a cigarette going and even a cigar.

I know what you mean. Today, with all of the knowlege we have about the dangers of smoking, I guess it is a bit strange to see. As a kid in the mid sixties, I can remember going to the doctor and being examined. After I was dressed, he`d come in to see my mother and I, and he`d light a cigarette. It was no big deal. Everyone lit up then. I actually miss some of the cigarrette comercials I saw as a kid on TV. They were really kind of funny!

I like the old cigarette ads too. You can watch some on you tube. I do remember people smoking in movie theaters, airplanes, grocery stores,just about everywhere you go. Things are so different now, I live in Seattle and we have a pretty strict no smoking law here.
