Claire Ramsey Turning Point 2001

September 22, 2016

Claire Ramsey circa 2001I have mentioned before that back when Claire Ramsey was with Fletcher Reade I loved her to death. I was excited when I heard Claire was coming back, but I must admit I was disappointed. Claire came back with all of her negative traits in place and not much in the way of what had once made her great as a person, although she remained a great doctor.

Claire’s storyline of wanting to be a respectable and connected Bauer was a good one, except they never explained why Claire suddenly became so obsessed with it. Claire trying to connect with Michelle, but expecting Michelle to do things her way was in character, but didn’t really explain why all she suddenly wanted was Rick. Also, a reason why Claire wanted to get out of Chicago, the loss of a major grant or something wouldn’t have gone amiss.

Then they gave her an independent story away from Manny and the Bauers which was a great thing. They paired her with Alan Spaulding who was also getting a cold shoulder from his kids at the time so with that and their scheming, manipulative ways and similar intelligence and culture they were a great couple. I mean it wasn’t the romance of the century, but it put Alan with someone he considered an equal and they supported each other and connected to most storylines across the canvas encouraging their involvement likely in any of them that the writers currently wanted. They were a fun couple who were soap rich splashy, and could equally be compelling trying to do right by their kids or doing something selfish and horrible.

Sadly TPTB didn’t see things the same way. They had temporarily resolved the Reva-Josh-Olivia Spencer triangle in Jolivia’s favor and needed a new spoiler. So for reasons that were never clear to me Alan got obsessed with Olivia. I’m not overstating the case. He eventually even blackmails Olivia into sleeping with him. Alan was so better than that I can only describe this entire storyline as mental illness on his part. Alan slowly became more and more obsessed with Olivia to the point of turning his back to his family. With that as the writer’s game plan, Claire was surplus to requirements. So Alan refused to even have a meeting with Danny about the job like Claire asked which I’d have thought he’d done as a courtesy to people he knew far more than Claire, but the whole point was to show Claire and Alan were over and to have Danny create his own opportunity for a new chance.

Claire doesn’t disappear immediately, but after this it was a steady downhill stride. Her last appearance is still about a year out August 16, 2002, but never again would she really be a focus of story.

Fake Book: Harry Must Die!

September 14, 2016

The July 25, 1995 issue of Soap Opera Weekly deals with a question about a book called Harry Must Die! I tried to find it both on Amazon and WorldCat Libraries and no luck so I’m going with it being fake until I’m proved wrong. Here’s the information of how it was used in the story once in the 1970s and once in the 1990s on Another World.

Q: I noticed that Another World‘s Justine consulted a book called Harry Must Die! about making a poison cocktail for Lorna. Isn’t this the same book Janice Frame used when she poisoned Mac Cory? K. Morley Calgary Alberta

A: You have a great memory! During the late 1970s, Janice stole Mac from Rachel. Her lover, Mitch Blake (Matt’s father), came to town, and the two hatched a scheme to swindle Mac. Janice found Harry Must Die! in Mac’s Office and read it. Pat Randolph also read the book and noticed certain pages were missing. Using this and other evidence, Rachel deduced that Janice and Mitch were planning to kill Mac.

Mindy is the Sampson Girl March 10 1986

September 8, 2016

We have a short run of episodes available after the Bert Bauer Memorial Service. This should be the following Monday. Happily these are mostly important to Michelle’s history. This one is the exception. However, it continues the day of the memorial service and we learn a lot about where Rick’s life is right now just as he’s getting close to becoming a doctor. We get some great stuff today of seeing Mindy Lewis as the Sampson Girl including Dick Cavett’s second appearance on the show. If you wonder what happened to Kurt and Mindy after having the most beautiful soap wedding ever. Here you go — and see I TOLD you about their obsession with this house. There is a lot of Jessie and Simon today for people who enjoy them. In the next few episodes we’ll see the fight for custody of Michelle start to move to center stage. I’m sorry they don’t keep going longer, but really this is a nice little run.

March 10 1986

Mindy on Dick Cavett

Mindy on Dick Cavett

Mindy as the Sampson Girl is being interviewed by Dick Cavett (a real TV interview star). Cavett served as Master of Ceremonies for the  Sampson Girl Contest. Beth traveled with Mindy to help her. Jackson also came as part of the series of show biz stories they ran through back then. Back when talk shows were as big as judge shows are now and actually featured interesting topics and conversations, Dick Cavett was one of the best.

Simon and Jessie are still in jail. Ironically Simon was a criminal, but IS innocent this time. A count of the cash register shows it $50 short which backs Simon’s story.

Rick shows up with his study buddy friend Amber and Roxie tries to get him to tell her about what went on with Amber, but he covers not wanting her to know the part about his drug.

Not sure who these day players are taking screen time with a lame pick-up.  There are a lot of slight line gaffes today. Kurt implies both that he’s going to call the police and go down there.

Simon continues to try to protect Jessie and work Alexandra.

Mindy says she spent a lot of time on H.B.’s ranch growing  up and learned to “ride and shoot with the best of them.” Mindy: “Springfield is part big city and part small town.”

Jackson intercepts Kurt’s message. Jackson is currently working on breaking up Mindy and Kurt. I don’t approve of why he’s doing it, but I approve of the aim.

When Roxie had amnesia she ended up in Alaska which is what brought Kurt to town in the first place. Reva has forgiven Hawk for frequently and finally abandoning them as children. Roxie has taken a firmer stance as the younger sibling remembering less of the father and more of the hurt. Hawk does get a job there and works at Company for the next few years.

 

Mindy and Dick get publicity shots. Dick again encourages Mindy to be a guest again soon. Calla (Jessie’s mother, Lillian’s sister) shows up and is furious. Her whole plan for coming to town was to marry Jessie off to someone rich and socially connected (hopefully Phillip Spaulding) as Calla’s own ticket to wealth and prominence. Simon pushes the con by telling Alex she has to accept him right now or he’s leaving town.

Somehow Fletcher and Reva who is working for the newspaper have become best friends. Reva’s sick stranger violently refuses medical aid.

Rick’s “friend” takes the torn pieces of the illegal amphetamines (speed) prescription from Rick’s table and says to himself he’ll give them to Claire for a reward. They’ll be ammunition for the custody case for Michelle.

This was during the time when the continued one of the scenes under the credits. It’s my favorite credit style because it really makes you feel like life goes on in Springfield when the cameras aren’t rolling. They did it on As the World Turns also.

Paul Anthony Stewart Website

Paul Anthony Stewart

Paul Anthony Stewart

This is what happens when you don’t check in on things regularly. Paul has a website now. It is basically set up as a resume for casting directors, not for fans — seriously couldn’t he add a page with basic fan info??? But still it is a nice catch up on what he’s been doing and some lovely photos where he’s smiling. So many of his glossies are him looking serious and he has such a lovely smile. There’s even one where he does my favorite eyebrow scrunch that I adore. I had seen about half these photos and I try to follow him pretty well so you probably haven’t seen them either.

When You Walked Into My Life By Shelley

September 5, 2016

To make it easier to direct people to this story I wanted to put all the chapter links in a single post, in other words do a link roundup. This story is in the nonmob fanfic category. This is a fic that I rescued with help from readers (thanks!) taking chapters from various sources and have republished.

Manny in the Surf

Manny in the Surf

“When You Walked Into My Life” – SanCorp CEO Danny Santos has just been named one of America’s 5 top bachelors by People Magazine and his friend and co-worker Bill Lewis wants to take him out to celebrate at a strip club. He reluctantly agrees and is glad he did when some of his employees start harassing one of the waitresses there who desperately needs the money she earns there to help pay for raising her sick daughter. Danny rescues her and suddenly discovers he’s found just what he was looking for to put some meaning and happiness in his life. They live such different lives Michelle is afraid it will never work, but she feels safer in his arms than she’s ever felt. He asks her to go to a charity ball with him, but she can’t afford a dress. He sends her shopping with his sister Pilar, who thinks maybe for once her brother has found someone who could make him happy and isn’t just after his money and fame. Danny gives Michelle a job as his new personal assistant, takes the news of her daughter well, but still has to deal with trouble from work.

Sadly this is an incomplete fic. What’s here is great though.

Michelle and Danny Search For Carmen Aug 9 10 2001

September 2, 2016

Check out our latest episode guide post.

Charter Fragment

Thurs., Aug. 9, 2001 – At Company: Frank and Buzz are talking when Michelle comes in. She asks to speak to Frank. She tells Frank that she found out some more on her theory of Carmen. She tells him about the intern, Jennifer Tarver, that disappeared from the ER the night Carmen died and she never came back. Frank still doubts the theory. Michelle asks him to follow up on the intern. Michelle is sure about this. Frank tells her that he has a bad feeling about this. She begs him to help her prove it. Michelle tells Frank to think of Robbie and help them. He finally agrees to help. He is going to try to find the intern. Michelle asks him not to say anything to Danny and Frank agrees. He leaves and Michelle looks at the paper she found in the interns belongings and leaves. Danny and Tony meet outside. Tony tells Danny he has been looking into things and he has Romeo on Lucas. Danny tells him that they have to hurry for Michelle’s sake. Romeo comes in with Lucas Carmichael, a former flunky of Carmen’s who was paid to purger himself testifying against Danny, with a serious gambling problem. Romeo leaves and Danny asks Lucas who paid him off. Lucas tries to leave and Tony reminds him of the $80,000 he owes Infierno. Lucas tells him he has money coming. They offer to pick up his marker at the club if he answers some questions. The guy tells them that he got a message shortly after Carmen’s death that told him to go to a shack in Laurel Falls. He tells them he got there and someone put a blindfold on him. They took him inside and told him to go down to the docks and throw something in the water. It was a canvas bag that was heavy that had metal clanging inside. He dumped the bag and stripped the car. He also remembers he smelled roses at the shack. Lucas leaves and Danny tells Tony that Carmen always wore “Royal Rose” perfume. He knows Carmen is alive but for now they should keep it to themselves. Danny comes inside Company and tells Frank he needs his help. At Laurel Falls: Michelle comes upon the shack while thinking back to the night Carmen died. She goes into the shack and looks around. She doesn’t find anything and starts to leave when a bat flies through and scares her. She runs outside and thinks she didn’t find anything. She remembers the woodstove inside and goes back to search it. Michelle finds a piece of paper that says Springfield Airport. It’s part of a logo from an invoice or a piece of letterhead and it says “and Sons Air Charter” at the Springfield Airport.

Fri., Aug. 10, 2001 – At Company: Danny asks for Frank’s help. David sticks his nose in the conversation and tells Danny that if it is official he can talk to him as well. Danny tells them that he thinks Michelle may be in trouble, he believes Carmen is still alive. Claire calls Michelle on the phone: “Ever get a feeling that you can’t shake, like someone you love is about to jump off a high rise?”  David accuses Danny of trying to play them to save his own hide. Frank tells Danny that Michelle is thinking the same thing and investigating herself. Danny is getting upset and tells Frank that if Carmen is alive, Michelle is in danger and he needs his help. Frank doesn’t really believe the theory of Carmen being alive, but knows that if she were Danny would be right to worry about Michelle’s safety. Frank tells Danny about the intern Michelle wants him to find. David thinks the whole thing is bunk and thinks Frank is crazy to listen to it. Danny tells Frank that all this time they haven’t had a trace of Carmen and now all of the sudden there are clues popping up all over about her being alive. He knows his mother and tells Frank that she covers her tracks unless she wants to be found. He thinks she is setting Michelle up. Frank tells him he will look into the intern thing but that is all he can do. He leaves and David goes to make some calls while watching Danny. Danny tries over and over to get Michelle on her cell but there is no answer. Claire comes over and tells Danny that she has talked to Michelle and she thinks she is after Carmen. She also tells him that while she was on the phone she heard an announcement for a plane to Montreal. Danny leaves. At the Airport: Michelle tries to get an airport employee to tell her about a chartered airline. She showed them the paper she located at Laurel Falls with the letterhead of the airline and asks to speak to the man in charge. While she is waiting, Claire calls and begs her to let her help. Michelle tells her she will talk to her later and ends the call. Shortly after, the head of the airline comes over and she asks him if he can tell her who chartered their plane on a certain date last year. He tells her he can’t help her with his private clients. Michelle pretends to start crying and then spins a story about looking for her birth mother because she is dying and needs a transplant. The man tells her he will check his records for her. He brings out the record book and verifies that an injured woman traveled on the dates she was talking about from Springfield to Bear Lake, Canada. Michelle asks him how fast he can get her there. He goes to check and brings back a ticket on a commercial airline that will take Michelle to Montreal and from there his man will meet with her and take her on to Bear Lake. Michelle thinks it’s a little odd he’s suddenly so helpful, but thanks him and goes to board the plane. She passes one of Carmen’s thugs and seems to recognize him. She goes on to the plane. The thug calls someone and tells him or her that Michelle is on her way. Danny arrives at the airport and begs them to get his wife off the plane. They tell him he can’t go on the plane without a ticket and he throws a credit card at the stewardess telling her to sell him one. David has followed him and goes over and arrests Danny. Danny yells out for Michelle to get off the plane. Meanwhile, at the shed in Laurel Falls, Carmen is happy that Michelle is on her way to Canada. Just then Michelle burst in the shack and tells Carmen she didn’t take the bait.

My Comments: I tell you whenever Danny and Michelle hide things from each other bad stuff happens, even when it’s to protect each other. This is a great example of that. I love Michelle working Frank – upset he didn’t think of it first (Frank never solves anything), that Robbie would be growing up without a father like Frank did. I love it when they key into history in conversations between characters who’ve known each other a long time. I’m sorry Frank didn’t tell Danny right away though. He knows the trouble these two can get into when they aren’t together. Claire is acting like she might have if she and Fletcher had stayed together and raised Michelle. I’m so sorry this is it. I’m a little surprised Claire doesn’t follow Michelle’s train of thought faster though. Claire can be a good detective in her own right. I’m glad they brought up Lucas Carmichael again. It’s nice to use a loose end. I truly hate that they dump all this bad stuff on Laurel Falls. Laurel Falls deserves better than this. I’m sorry that David picked this moment to swing back obsessed with getting the Santos family. He could at least have checked the plane. This cliffhanger is really great because this is the first time that viewers find out for sure that it IS Carmen and she’s alive.

Paul Question from back in 1995

September 1, 2016

In the July 25, 1995 issue of Soap Opera Weekly the “Any Questions?” section featured this question.

Q: What can you tell me about Paul Anthony Stewart (ex-Casey Bowman, Loving)? ….. K. Tesch, Chicago

A: Stewart went to Princeton University. His theater credits include Playing with Fire (After Frankenstein) in New York and as Christian in the Broadway production of Cyrano, for when he was nominated for a Tony. Before joining Loving he was in Woody Allen’s Shadows and Fog. The actor now divides his time between New York and Los Angeles. ….

It includes a poor quality photo…the magazine is printed on newsprint paper… of Paul in his Cyrano costume. He’s very dashing and still rocking the longer hair (personally I prefer it shorter, but to each his own). On the left see him pictured with the longer hair as Loving‘s Casey.

Memorial Service for Bert Bauer

August 29, 2016

This episode originally appeared March 7, 1986.

The main story is the Memorial Service for Bert Bauer. This earlier tribute I think was from the time Charita Bauer who portrayed her died about a year earlier than her death on screen.

The main storyline in this episode is Bert’s funeral, but this is a full episode so other things are going on in this same episode.

Some watchers might be wondering , who are Jessie Matthews and Simon Hall? They disappeared so completely after they left the show without few connections and no later mentions but this is who they are: https://glmanny.wordpress.com/2012/04/09/faq-who-are-simon-and-jesse/

The short version of what you see today is that Simon and India had previously been involved they came to town with a plan to con Alex into thinking he was her half-brother and get him into the Spaulding name and inheritance. Actually he was the son of her ex-husband, Lujack’s father. However, either fortunately or unfortunately for Simon, it turns out with Alex and Jessie around he’s not quite the criminal shark he thought he was.

We open with Maeve and Kyle who have made the best of their for the sake of the child marriage and seem happy. Maeve has been ordered to bed rest because of her pregnancy with the future Ben Reade. India von Halkein is good friends with Maeve and shows up to visit. I absolutely adore Maeve and Kyle’s bedroom furniture set. I would totally buy one of those. India is divorcing Phillip which is a real shame since she is the only other woman besides Beth that I believe he could have really been happy with. India has been involved with Simon and thought he would marry her. Basically though Simon viewed her as more of a partner in crime with benefits and is far more interested in a familial relationship with Alexandra Spaulding and a romantic relationship with Jessie Matthews. This leaves India out in the cold.

Kurt Corday who is running Company has left an untrained Jessie Matthews in charge of Company all on her own when a bus shows up. (This happens in real life too, buses without warning are a real pain.)

Before Bert’s funeral, check out that of Papa Bauer’s Michelle’s great-grandfather’s from about 10 years before.

Bert and Rick

Bert and Rick

Bert’s Memorial Service is held in the Bauer House living room and seems to involve all the major people in town, appropriately dressed in mourning. On the show Bert was kept alive for a little while after Charita Bauer (her actress) died. She was out of town and lived long enough for Ed to bring her namesake Berta Michelle Bauer and for her to hold her. She passed on off screen shortly thereafter. It’s a fairly informal gathering after the actual formal service which was held off screen. They are sitting around eating and drinking with people feeling they are helping.

Attendees include: Henry Chamberlain, H.B. Lewis, Claire Ramsey, Ross Marler, Vanessa Chamberlain, Maureen Reardon Bauer, Roxie Shayne, Reva Shayne, Fletcher Reade, Lillian Raine, hospital guy I can’t remember his name, Warren Andrews, Ed Bauer, Rick Bauer, Billy Lewis, Phillip Spaulding, Kurt Corday, and a friend of Rick’s Amber.

This restored clip from CBS features the taking hands and then the montage with different music. It doesn’t seem to have gotten as much restoration as some of their other clips and isn’t as clear. Sadly it doesn’t include the news story close up or we might have been able to read it.

Rick always had a very special relationship with Bert. His desire to create a similar relationship with a child of his own will be the driving force of the character for the next two decades. He was devastated by Bert’s death.

I think the laughter of the others is realistic though. You remember both the good and the bad at a funeral. Actually Ed’s story about the breakfast he and Mike made is exactly how I like my French Toast. Everyone shares memories of Bert. My favorite is Vanessa saying how Bert was the first woman she’d met who could make the Lewis men cower.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjKLCQcxUNg (Part 1)

We go back to Company where Jessie is overwhelmed. Simon helps by doing some magic tricks to keep the crowd from being restless while they waited for Jessie to get their orders. Two unrelated people show up and rob the cash register.

India complains about all of the time Simon is spending with Alex instead of her. Hawk arrives and as much as he wants he can’t dismiss him because of Hawk’s knowledge of his dealings and his being true love Reva’s father.

They did their frequent trick of announcing Mike had to leave after church service to explain why they didn’t pay to have him come back.

Ed: “You know a child has to have security, a feeling of security. It has to have absolute love if it’s going to have confidence in itself when it grows up and I want to give Michelle that kind of childhood. I want her to be part of a strong loving family and I don’t know for the life of me how she’ll get that with Claire.”

Ross is apparently back to dating Calla Matthews, Jessie’s mother. I’m sorry about that. I never really liked them together.

Reva had discovered a strange man in the woods. He’s suffering from a fever, but she’s been taking care of him on her own and hasn’t told anyone.

Fletcher had already dumped Claire which explains their snarky exchange.

Rick talks about his relationship with Bert and how special it was. Then he talks about his frustration with this drug addiction.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUSELyeiFjs (Part 2)

Hawk reminds Kyle of what he knows (that Kyle still loves Reva and secretly bought her Reva Bend – neither Reva nor Maeve know) and threatens to tell if Kyle doesn’t pay more blackmail. Kyle calls his bluff, but India hears his threat that eventually both Reva and Maeve will learn about what he’s done and how he feels. India overhears.

The Reardons excuse for not coming is that Bea had to stay out east because Annabelle and Tony are about to have a baby. Sorry they didn’t pay for them to come back, but So glad about the baby news. I love Tony and Annabelle and the news they are having a baby almost makes up for Tony, Annabelle, and Bea not being at the funeral as they should be. I’m so sorry you can’t read the article about Bert. I really can’t believe they didn’t read it out loud. What was the point of just showing a copy not clear and not big enough to read it on screen?

At this time Roxie was dating Rick, but it was a friend he confided in about his drug abuse not Roxie. So she’s feeling cut out and not understanding why. Unfortunately she has an inferiority complex so anything like this sets her off to acting out. The contest Roxie is talking about is the Sampson Girl contest Mindy Lewis won instead.

Rick finds inspiration in wanting Bert to be proud of him to go cold turkey on his pill addiction. Roxie doesn’t know either about the addiction or his decision to go off the drugs.

Fed up with Claire and her treatment of Michelle, Ed and Maureen announce that they are going for full custody and Fletcher tells Claire she should let them have it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5U6_Ht_c4aE (Part 3)

The final part is a montage of short scene clips and screen captures through the years.

Wired for Sound

August 28, 2016

Take a trip back to Wired for Sound.

Glmanny's Blog

One of my irregular features is a series of descriptions of places in Springfield over the years. Tonight we add another to my Places of Springfield page.

Wired for Sound

Wired for Sound – There were many clubs in Springfield over the years, from the Blue Orchid to Inferno, they tended to come and go, much the way real clubs go in and out of fashion.
