LIFE AT CORTLANDT MANOR, ALL MY CHILDREN
This is the story that got ALL MY CHILDREN back on track. Living under one roof was Palmer and his wife Natalie, as well as his son and daughter-in-law, Ross and Ellen, Natalie and Ross had been having an affair. It was drama at its best as: Ross and Ellen's adopted daughter Julie learned the truth and tried desperately to keep her parents together; Elizabeth Carlyle, Julie's natural mother, turned up and wanted to take Julie away from Ellen and Ross -- eventually causing Julie to run off to New York, where she started working the streets; Mark Dalton, Ellen's ex-husband, arrived and wanted Ellen back -- especially after learning that he was Julie's natural father; Palmer's precious daughter Nina went off and married Matt Connolly, a man she hardly knew, causing more turmoil; Palmer and Ellen learned about their spouces diallianes; Ellen left Ross for Mark; Palmer threw Ross and Natalie out; Ross raped Natalie in revenge. Quite simply, life at Cortlandt Manor was -- and continues to be -- the most tightly woven and compelling saga that AMC has served up in years.
