There's a picture of Another World star George Reinholt chewing on some pizza (more on him later!) and another of singer/hoofer Bobby Van from the Broadway musical Doctor Jazz. If this show doesn't seem familiar to you, it may be because it ran for only five performances before being closed!
I include pictures from this spread in order to please any fans of the show who might like to see them.
This spread below expounds on the revelation that Another World would be expanding to a one-hour format.
Benevolent god that I am, I even scanned the key to the sketch of all the featured players on the cover so that you can tell if you guessed their identities correctly!
The Chit Chat section shown here has a picture of Peter Brown (an actor whose been profiled here) stating that he would never marry again after three divorces (he was under forty at the time!) In fact, he went on to marry twice more, once from 1986 to 1999 and again from 2008 to the present. There's also an amusing blurb about everyone's favorite soap world wacko Brenda “Welcome to My Home” Dickson.
At this time, THE daytime hunk was George Reinholt, who played Steve Frame on Another World. He was embarking on a singing career as well and found his way onto an album that paid tribute to composer Jerome Kern, Ben Bagley's Jerome Kern Revisited. I include this advertisement more for the low-cut shirt and hairy chest than for what scintilla of knowledge I possess about the vocal pipes of Mr. R.
This actor-on-actor interview is interesting because the two gentlemen involved (both popular veteran soap actors) were homosexual in real life, but vaguely “in” each other through the course of the article, sidestepping their disinterest in marriage by talking about casual female dates and using the terms “people” and “person” when describing love.
Not only do they share a laugh over a caftan, as shown here:
...and nods to cutie Gary Swanson, Wesley Eure and “newcomer” Dixie Carter!
A wedding tribute section shows what daytime TV brides were wearing in the mid-'70s.
Here's a color shot of all the ladies gathered together:
Here's a happy shot of some doctors and nurses of General Hospital:
Check this page for an unrecognizable Dixie Carter! Also, buried amongst the rest of the cast at the bottom right, is a young Christopher Reeve in his pre-Superman days.
Look at this ad on the back cover for a magazine called TV Showpeople. Do you recognize all the stars represented in the collage?
Miss Donna Mills. And check the '70s halter get-up on Jamie Lynn Bauer! Lastly, though we all know how much I love a pair of snug trousers on a man, conversely I am less excited by the same on a female. Miss Jeanne Cooper's slacks may very well have been the ones to coin the term “camel toe!”
Here's some more of James Houghton as I know he still has fans out there.
You have to love the '70s...
Born in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on August 22nd, 1939, Reinholt was on Broadway before he turned thirty in the smash hit Cabaret, understudying Bert Convy as Cliff and later playing the role of Ernst. While still working in Cabaret, he appeared on the daytime serial The Secret Storm and then took the part of Steve Frame on Another World in 1968.
Almost nothing was heard from Reinholt after this as he faced some tremendous personal problems. His mother fell ill and died, followed not long after by his father. The home he'd purchased for them with his once-great earnings was taken from him. He slid into a depression and battled an alcohol dependence. By the late-'80s, he was living a quiet, obscure life in a one-room apartment (a converted garage, actually) and unable to secure any acting jobs.
