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… Read more »

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 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.

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… Read more »

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….

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.
