GENERAL HOSPITAL FLASHBACK: A Complete Guide to Who's Who (And What They're Up To) in Port Charles

In the "complete 1981 update" of "Daytime TV's Greatest Stories No. 2: Everything You Want to Know About GENERAL HOSPITAL" we found a delightful rundown of 37 Port Charles characters, what they do, and who they're involved with. It's fun to see who has changed, and who never will!

Entitled "Getting the Story Straight: A Complete Guide to Who's Who (And What Their Up To) in Port Charles," by Phyllis Thaler, the dossier names the actor playing each character and also gives a sense of each resident's relative importance on the GENERAL HOSPITAL canvas of the early 80s.

For example:


Laura Webber Baldwin
(Genie Francis)
Laura has made it clear that there is to be no reconciliation with her husband, Scotty. She repeatedly proves that her heart belongs exclusively to Luke Spencer, and her receptionist position at ELQ International helps her keep tabs on her cunning sweetheart.

We've also reproduced the colorful front and back cover of the magazine, in which the "Guide to Who's Who" appeared on pages 20 and 21. Please right-click on the image of each page to expand in it's own window. Then, you can click again to view an even larger, nicely readable version.

  1. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED (re)reading all the Daytime TV articles, especially in light of the recent news that GH has been given a reprieve.

    Would you humor this old-timer, and fix your headline, please?

    THEIR should be THEY'RE.

    Thanks, and keep up the good work.

  2. This is why the show was #1, it was not all about Luke and Laura! So many stories and characters that were Hospital staff or related to Hospital staff.
