An older neighbor lady who once in awhile stops over with cookies for me, watched that with me, she watched AMC from early on..
She almost cried, she was misty eyed, and said
” I was young and as pretty as them (the mothers) at the time now I’m as old as they are, it is hard to realize that, it seems like yesterday”
Anyways!
It is hard to accept they killed a great soap for a failed ‘revolution’ and all others seemed to have failed since..
(( I like that clip!! too see them all so young!! that was fun!!!
Tad!! ohhh my god for handsome hot!!!!

We just lost Billy Clyde and now Pat Baxter…i lost many of my real family members and friends close together and i continue to loose my onscreen family members and friends too…also Ann B. Davis who played Alice on primetimes old Brady Bunch has passed away after a tragic fall in her home…sad!!!

I never liked Anne B. Davis, very overated actress, in my opinion she was a spinster. LOL. But very sad? That she passed away.

Wait, Laura–how is Anne B Davis an over rated actress? I don’t recall anyone comparing her to Meryl Streep. She played her part well–a funny, self-depreciating maid who lived to serve the Brady Bunch It wasn’t exactly Shakespeare, nor did it pretend to be. She was so good at being Alice, we believed she really was Alice.
Saying she is overrated as an actress is like saying that Bob Denver from Gilligan’s Island was an overrated actor.

I miss AMC so much!

I can still hear her resonant tone, she provided strength and clarity, in many ways being “the voice of reason” was an unsung role, yet her stateliness made it sing. Blessings upon the memory of Ms. Chamberlain and her family, artistic and native as well as her family of fans.

My condolences to her family.Plus i do think it’s sad we are losing so many of the older performers lately.

I loved her! She was absolutely a class act on AMC. Very saddened to hear of her passing.

She was excellent as Angie’s mom on ALL MY CHILDREN, the show that absolutely never should have been cancelled – and the show deserved better than to only have a brief “on-line” rebirth only to be placed on the indefinite status it currently holds.

I loved her–she was a very good actress. You really believed she was Angie’s mother.
I miss Debbie Morgan and Darnell Williams. It seems a shame that two of the finest actors in daytime drama are not working in soaps anymore. Y& didn’t seem to be able to write for these great actors.

Man, AMC was good back then, and for a long time, too. It was my number one soap, watched from the first day to the last. Lee Chamberlin made Pat Baxter such a real character – as so many were back then. I had no trouble “believing” that she really was Ruth and Joe’s neighbor. Great days…

When Angie came back to AMC when it was still on ABC I hoped that we might get to see her “mother”, or at least hear about her, but we never did.

RIP, great actor and it sounds like a wonderful person as well.

So sad to lose both Lee and Anne. I guess we need to get into the mode of losing more actors on a daily basis, as there has been such a growing media influence since the 1960’s and 1970’s. But that does not mean that their deaths are not sad, just that there will be more of them….

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
