    Frankie's bastard was how she put it? No?

    Can someone please make a gif of Sable dragging her fur out of Zach's apartment? I would have endless uses for it! @Richard Channing I'll love you forever!

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    We will discuss this on another thread if you want. I think it is better for me not to develop negative arguments about the show in this thread, as a show of courtesy both to the writer and to @Alexis who secured this interview .

    Sure. Assuming the clip is on Youtube (I think most of Sable's scenes are) just post it here and I'll see what I can do.

    I think that Stanwyck was wrong for the part as it was written in the early episodes (the nice old woman who gets an affair with a rancher and who is accused to become senile).
    It's clear that in mid-season the writers made some changes (the rancher is out, Connie is back at Colby Enterprises) in order to give the right material for her.
    They should have done that right from the start.

    Unfortunately I don't own the DVD's. I've never used them but there are sites online that will make a gif, but I don't know if you can do that from an episode on a DVD or if that's more for youtube videos.

    Have just seen this thread. My laptop recently found itself in a half-baked universe after an auto-ungrade fried a part of my hard-drive. I was offline until it received a new body in an old skin. (Almost the first thing I did after getting back online on Friday evening was to more or less stay put with Netflix, to binge watch. Haven’t ventured further afield until now.)
    ….Am glad to see that one of SoapChat’s old guards finally thought that Paul Huson was worth contacting. Good on ya, @Alexis .

    To someone like me, making a gif would be like entering The Hunger Games. And on a morning when I didn't have my Weetabix.

    I had forgotten that Douglas Cramer owned that horrible nude of Joan Collins reading. I found that a bit strange when I read about years ago.

    Maybe it's already been mentioned here, I'm too lazy to look it up, but William Bast also wrote the screenplay for The Betsy (which should have been a prime time soap, albeit with a different name)

    * A great interview! It must have been hard to work with Stanwyck. She expected to be the female star like Jane Wyman just to realize the show was created to show the love of Fallon & Jeff and HIS family. All the attention went to two british nowhere famous ladys and with every episode Beacham´s star rose bigger and bigger while her role was reduced because of her illness.

    * Huson: "I never felt Channing had enough going for her to justify Miles interest in her." - it was right the was it was written. Channing was only a placeholder. Miles will love Fallon forever ...

    * Why the hell did they wanted Dickinson all the time? They wanted her to be Krystle, later offered her another part on "Dynasty" and she could have been Sable, too.

    * When Al asked Evans (in 1992 for a German documentary about the show) "Did the Colbys hurt Dynasty?" - She said "It definitely damaged the marketing."
