Editorial Reviews

Following closely on the widely anticipated release of Part One comes Peyton Place Part Two. This ABC show introduced such taboo topics as extramarital affairs, unwed teen pregnancies, family betrayals, mental illness and even murder to 60s America primetime TV, and in the process became not only a ratings giant, but an enduring symbol of the era it represented. Featuring the widow Constance MacKenzie (1950s melodrama star Dorothy Malone), her innocent daughter Allison (Mia Farrow), the wealthy but troubled Rodney Harrington (Ryan O'Neal) and others, Peyton Place is as compulsively watchable today as it was 40 years ago. Part Two includes 33 half-hour episodes in a deluxe 5-DVD box set.

Customer Reviews

Hope to see the entire TV series in my life time!
C. Mathieu
I am a great fan of this series---I remember watching it when it was first telecast in the 60's and 70's and it was a really hot show.
Steven A. Aldridge
Regardless I still loved the series and hope they release the rest of it soon.

Shout! Factory is releasing "Peyton Place-Part 2" even before Part 1 is out, so this confirms to us that the studio is dedicated in bringing back this blockbuster soap via DVD format. I for one am very happy. "Peyton Place" was never released commercially through VHS, and this marks the first time the series has ever been on DVD. The serial has also been rarely seen through television during the last several decades. The only time I recall when "Peyton Place" was on was in the late 1990's when Romance Classics aired it, but unfortunately the channel went off the air before the entire library of shows were broadcast. Those episodes that did air were jumpy and scratchy. Now thanks to DVD we will see "Peyton Place" the way it should be shown; in crystle-clear digital format.
This boxset contains 33 30 minute episodes, uncut, without commercials. The reason the studio is releasing the boxsets in "Parts" is because the serial did not run from season to season, but rather was broadcast like a continuing soap opera. "Peyton Place" ran continuously for 5 full years, every week, with a brand new episode, and it never aired reruns, or had a summer hiatus period; it ran straight through the summer with new shows. The serial is the only primtime series to ever air with all-new shows for its entire run, and no other show has ever done this since.
The first year was the show's best as Ryan O'Neil and Mia Farrow played star-crossed lovers Rodney and Allison. Things got worse for them as Betty Anderson, played by Barbara Parkins, pursued Rodney.
"Peyton Place" is regarded by most soap opera critics as being one of the best network serials ever broadcast, and it gave way to other primetime shows like "Dynasty".

In Episode 36, Elliot Carson asks, "All the solid citizens of Peyton Place are good people, aren't they?" to which sensible Ada Jacks replies wryly, "That's the New England story if you want to believe it." Well, don't believe it for a second. As the continuing story of Peyton Place unfolds in this second DVD set from Shout Factory, viewers learn that everything in the town of 9,875 is not really as it seems. While the previous DVD set established core characters and laid the foundation for stories, Peyton Place truly begins firing on all cylinders in the next 31 episodes.

Among the shorter story arcs presented: George and Julie Anderson's marriage crumbles as George begins hallucinating and flashing back to his experiences in World War II. After running away to New York, Betty meets sophisticated "kept woman" Sharon Purcell (a luminous performance by actress Dayna Ceder -whatever happened to her?). Although Betty's New York adventure only lasts for six episodes, its impact will reverberate throughout the remainder of the program's run when Leslie Harrington's private detective makes a grievous misinterpretation of Betty's interaction with Sharon's associates. In other stories, Rodney and Allison move tentatively toward a relationship, while Norman Harrington finds a kindred spirit in the underprivileged Rita Jacks. Patricia Morrow's sensitive portrayal of a bad-girl-gone-good is absolutely flawless, with Rita eventually becoming one of the most beloved characters in the series.

However, it is Elliot Carson's return to Peyton Place in episode 32 which really drives the narrative for the next 30 episodes.

I loved part one and two! I wrote to Shout Factory about the release of part three and following is the reply I got. We can only hope they get the rights to put out more. They are worth the price for all those great episodes. If you haven't alrady, buy the first two parts. You won't be disappointed!
From Shout Factory:
Thanks for being a fan! We only had the rights to put out the first two, however, we are in talks with the company that owns the rights, to see if we can put out any more. Stay tuned to our website for more information, [...].
Sincerely, Shout Factory

There is no question about it. The best episodes of Peyton Place were the ones which starred Mia Farrow. Mia Farrow is the virginal heroine of the story, who stays innocent, among all the backstabbing, lies of all around her. When Mia left the show, a void was placed, which was never filled. Mia looked so beautiful with her long flowing blonde hair. Also, it was nice to see Mia quoting poetry and using it to understand the troubled world around her. Other beauty queens of the show were Barbara Parkins, Dorothy Malone, Casey Rogers and Lee Grant.

Highlights of the first season: The triangle of Rodney Harrington, Betty Anderson and Alison Mackenzie, Constance Mackenzie's dark secret from her daughter, the romantic development of Dr. Rossi and Constance Mackenzie, the wonderful acting of Casey Rogers as Mrs. Anderson, and the introduction of Lee Grant as Stella Chernak, who blows the other cast members away with her acting. I will not go into details of the plots because I am not a spoiler. It more fun for you to watch this for yourself.

I commend Shout: Factory for releasing these episodes so quickly to the Peyton Place fans and hopefully, a new generation of fans. It would be nice to have interviews with the surviving cast members of the show, especially Barbara Parkins, Mia Farrow and Dorothy Malone. Also, it would be nice to have the two t.v. movies based on the show released as a bonus feature.

Anyway, I love this show and thanks Shout for releasing this on dvd.
