It's really tough to get history from this show which isn't duplicated at every resource I've tried! I watched only the last two years but Belle was one of the all time classic soap Bad Girls! I would love to see some footage of her somewhere but YouTube only has clips from the earliest days and a few scattered 1960s clips and episodes where there are characters and actors not listed at any resource that I've found! Even just before being axed, this show was SO much better than any US soap currently airing!(not that that would be hard to accomplish.) I'm sure that any of those shows would KILL to get the ratings The Secret Storm was canceled over! It was a whole different world back then however and there was a much larger viewing base!

The other day, I received a very nice reply to a note I sent to Marla Adams. She looks upon her years in Woodbridge as the highlight of her career.

Here is a clip of the late Marjorie Gateson and Virginia Dwyer from a 1956 episode of "The Secret Storm"!

There's a clip on YouTube somewhere with Belle in a brief scene. She was beautiful. In one of the Joan Crawford episodes (audio only), she's heard talking to her father, I believe. She definitely was a first-rate villainess on that show. Seems like the soaps had believably mean villainesses in that era, such as Charlotte on GL, Erica on AMC, Andrea on SFT, Rachel on AW and Lisa on ATWT.

They were bitchy and complex. Belle will always be my favorite out of the pack. She was so beautiful but so nasty. I remember her trying to get a job at a newspaper years after her father and the Ames family were involved with or owned the competing papers in Woodbridge. She wasn't able to blackmail Amy for money anymore as Kevin threatened to have her prosecuted. Her husband wasn't out of jail yet and she needed a source of income. She went to talk to a woman editor who flat out refused to hire her. Belle called her a Dragon Lady and took off.She went storming into a bar wearing red and ordered a stinger on the rocks. Even the way she ordered a drink was bitchy. But she was just fascinating and you couldn't take your eyes off her.
