    No, the closest she wore to that one was at the BBQ here:



    Excuse the picture of that horrid Cryder bitch.

    Actually it's not that similar but I loved that white on her as well, she was stunning at this BBQ.


    I have no doubt that had the timing been right, they would have married in real life :kiss:

    Sorry ... not even a close call! :cool1 The white dress that Linda wore in the portrait photo with Larry wins by a landslide! :danc:

    Hmmm ... I'm not sure that I agree with your last statement, @Sarah! :shy: Just because Larry and Linda were best friends for 35 years and undoubtedly loved each other greatly, doesn't mean that they would have made it being married to each other! ;) Larry's wives off-screen and on-screen seem to have very different personalities! And let's not forget that Larry supposedly was happily married to his sweetheart Maj for almost 60 years! :kiss:

    Well back at ya because you forget my friend that I've followed this couple extremely closely for over 30 years and they DID say in an interview that had things been different, they may well have married each other. :p

    If Larry or Linda EVER felt mutual, sexual attraction to each other and thus felt anything more than a deep friendship, I would certainly hope that they would have stopped seeing each other outside of work ... PRONTO! It would be such an insult to not only his wife of many years but also to his children, if they (his family) had been left in the dark!

    I would certainly hope that Larry and Linda in interviews only joked about them being a couple in "real" life! If there would be any hint of truth to it, I quite frankly would lose respect for both of them! If they had fallen in love for real (and people do, I know), they should have acted upon it back then, instead of just keep on playing charades!

    To sum things up, I don't believe that Larry and Linda had nothing more than an amazing friendship! And Maj was a big part of that equation, IMO!

    I have nothing but total respect and love for both of them and have done my entire life. Don't get so upset my friend - nothing happened between them but it wasn't a joke when they said they would have married had they not been married already. That's a lovely thing, there were no insults, no deception on their parts. I do believe they loved each other deeply and were soulmates however. I know many many people who would be together now if they hadn't already married (I am one of them) but it doesn't mean I ever caused any other woman or couple harm!

    Can we get back to just swooning? I can't really handle such intense scrutiny of my fave couple when they don't deserve it :(

    Sorry if I offended you, Sarah! :forgive: But if what you're saying is really true, I find it disrespectful for Larry and Linda to have talked about "what if's"! In my opinion, it was disrespectful to Maj and also the institution of marriage. To me it doesn't matter if one doesn't act on it! The mere fact that someone has had thoughts about "what if" or "if only" at a time when he or she is in a committed relationship is unacceptable and disrespectful, IMO! :hat:

    Let's just agree to disagree on this topic! Okay, my dear friend? :hug:

    Now, I'll let you get back to swooning your favorite couple! :kiss::kiss::kiss:

    You didn't offend me my dear friend. None of us really know what they talked about in private and I'm basing what I say on what I've seen in interviews and such. I just don't like talking about it because I love them both so much - they are one of the only 'safe havens' I have.. so I get a little upright discussing their private business. From what I do understand Maj was totally in favour of their friendship and that is why she called Linda 'wife'. I believe Maj also knew about the fact that they probably would have married in a different time - there is nothing wrong with that. I know I would be with the man I love now if someone hadn't of beat me to it. I think a lot of people feel that way and I also believe it's possible to love more than one person.

    They are all I have to turn to sometimes so I do try to protect them best I can. :oops: Love you @Ms Southworth

    Yay, the forum is still swooning! For good reason, too. For me, watching JR and Sue Ellen has very little to do with the characters and everything to do with watching Larry and Linda on screen together. What a rare gift their chemistry was and even more rare that they so openly let us in on it through the characters they loved, the thousands of interviews they gave, and all the time they spent with their fans in person. Thanks for getting the Swoon Thread started again, Sarah! They deserve it.

    Welcome back @Goldie. :)

    I just got back from my vacation and I am really glad to see that this thread keeps swooning while I've been away too. :)
    It's also nice to see more and more of the old gang return. :welcome:

    I think I need to show you the clip that Sarah is referring to where this was discussed so that you can see that there's nothing disrespectful about it:




    It begins at around the 10.03 mark.

    So I hope that clears that up. :)

    Swoon! Love that entire photo shoot. They looked like they had so much fun and the photographer really caught their chemistry. I recently saw a version I hadn't seen before.

    I know they are amazing together. :kiss:
    Somehow I never get tired of rewatching Dallas.

    Also to give you an example how they had this star quality that you can't take your eyes off when they are on the screen. In this scene where Kristin calls:

    uvs170808-002.JPG

    In the very beginning the camera accidentally captures a bit of a spotlight in the corner. I must have watched this scene maybe 20 times and I have never noticed it prior to this summer when I was trying to figure out the floorplan of Southfork and hence spent time looking at the setting. You can see the spotlight in this cap:

    uvs170808-001.JPG
    It's only available for a moment and yet I never noticed it before as I was too busy looking at Larry and Linda as JR/SE. Truly mesmerizing together.
