A new clip from a 1976 episode of Days. Part of the episode was posted previously. Some scenes with Valerie Grant and her parents; David Banning, Brooke Hamilton, Bill Horton, Tom & Alice dealing with Brooke's mother's alcoholism; and a bit of Maggie and Mary Anderson.

I watched that earlier today. Anytime I get to chance to see more Brooke Hmailton, especially Adrienne LaRussa's version, it makes me very happy. Paul scene with Valerie was great, too and just makes one imagine all the lost potential with the Grants.

Today is the 37th anniversary of Doug & Julie's first wedding. Bill Hayes was reminiscing about it on Twitter last night. :wub2:

Bill & Susan Hayes ‏@DaysHayes

Did you know that Doug and Julie were married to the same words (2 yrs later) that Bill and Susan were? Absolutely true!

Bill & Susan Hayes ‏@DaysHayes

Only difference was that there were 16 guests at Bill and Susan's wedding, 16,000,000 tuned in to see Doug and Julie get hitched. Ooooh!

Bill & Susan Hayes ‏@DaysHayes

Tens of thousands called in sick and stayed home to watch. Many students cut classes to join the fun. Over 4,000 came to NBC in person! Ooh!

Bill & Susan Hayes ‏@DaysHayes

We came out of the studio and had wedding cake with the 4,000. Were you there?

An unforgettable day!

For the Doug and Julie wedding, many gathered in groups to watch in their homes, eating cake, drinking champagne. They sent us snapshots!

Bill & Susan Hayes ‏@DaysHayes

They set the table with the best china and silverware. Some dressed for the occasion. Heels, hats, jewelry--the works!

Bill & Susan Hayes ‏@DaysHayes

We've loved every minute of it!

And "The Look of Love" is still on the face of "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World!"

Bumping this thread, as promised, because I'm about to watch more of the story on the aftermath of Adrienne's rape and Duke's death.

My early thoughts on this is that Steve is being insufferable and I'm not sure why Kayla is putting up with it.

Apparently there was no doctor/patient confidentiality in 198_. I'm surprised that Kayla/Kim would be discussing Adrienne's progress.

I like the way people's jobs are driving interactions. RoJohn stopping in to pick up Kim's patient in clip 6 was nice.

Adrienne's nervous lip licking is kind of distracting, though. I hope it's an acting choice for this particular story and not something that's going to keep cropping up.

I always loved that as well. I thought it was a great touch that in his fantasies, he saw himself as "whole" because it's a great way of showing that the loss of his eye never really stopped affecting him. I also loved that Steve's fantasies were romantic while Kayla's were very sexual. Just another way of keeping the characters from being stereotypes.

Early 1987. And no, there was no doctor/patient confidentiality or HIPPA at all. I think that is why the lack of it doesn't really bother me now. I grew up with it that way on Days.

They walked a very fine line with making Kayla determined, but not a doormat. In this section, they get a little too close to the doormat side. But that does get balanced out in the aftermath - particularly when Jack first shows up in town.

I HATED that fantasy. It was just way too much cheese even for me. Liked the song though, especially when they used it in the deaf storyline.

Oh, Espy.

I should've known.

Hated the Lady in Red fantasy, too. I liked the more situational fantasies, like Steve's very first one of Kayla, skipping Marlena and RoJohn's wedding in order to be with him (right after he'd seen her with Chris Kositchek, before he became Winston). The fantasies were sappy as all get out (even Kayla's gettin' busy with the bad boy ones) but they were water in the desert back when romances actually took time to build and develop and were built around actual internal conflicts and not just external ones. What worked so well for the Steve and Kayla romance in particular is that the fantasy sequences were often in direct counterpoint to how they were behaving with each other outwardly. That's what made them fun and useful. They kept us 'shipping when all hope seemed lost.

Oh, so Jack hasn't arrived at this point? Why is Jo being so cagey about Billy, then? I thought she met Harper and he threatened her into keeping quiet?

Oh, Jack's coming. It's not the Jack you're used to at first though. It's a blonde Jack. Joseph Adams. Decent "nice guy" actor. I had no objections. Even liked him, except that he was an interloper in Steve and Kayla's romance, and THAT I objected to, LOL!

But he's not Matt Ashford...and I'm not sure he could have handled Jack's dark side. I think a lot of Jack fans question this as well. No real objection to Adams, but..could he have handled what came later?

Now, Jack two? You'll be hating on him, I bet.
