"A Beautiful Momento"
on September 19, 2011
As soap opera fans mourn the loss of yet another blockbuster daytime drama when "All My Children" goes off ABC on September 23, 2011, People magazine has put together this thick, well-researched work on one of the most popular daytime serials to grace our screens. Filled with beautiful black and white photos and extremely gorgeous colored pics this edition of People is a must-own for fans of "All My Children". It traces the history of the show from the very beginning in 1970, discusses some of the series' most dramatic storylines, and gives fans a gift to enjoy for decades to come. The weddings, divorces, the comings and goings of cast members are celebrated here. See when Erica Kane had the first legal abortion, when a popular character had a face lift before "Young and Restless" did it, the greatest TV wedding in 1980 when Nina and Cliff got married which even put Luke and Laura's to shame, and all the other wonderful moments in Pine Valley.
Although "All My Children" goes off network television there is hope for its future as Prospect Park, a huge million dollar ad agency in Hollywood, has bought its rights to air new episodes on the internet and perhaps even cable television. Let's hope Susan Lucci will be a part of it!
