Today in Soap Opera History (February 7)

On this date in...

1908: Future AS THE WORLD TURNS star William Johnstone (Judge James Lowell) was born in Brooklyn.

1966: On ANOTHER WORLD, Emily Hastings, "a relaxed, motherly sort of woman," gazed at Mike Bauer in mutual affection when he returned home. She reminded him Dr. James said that even if Julie had lived, she would never have left the sanitarium. She was thrilled to hear that, though dissatisfied at work, he wasn't considering returning to his home town because he and Hope had found a home with her (GUIDING LIGHT was moving from Selby Flats to Springfield at the time). Mike commented it was Lee's fault as they read in The Herald about John's accident yesterday. Mike revealed that at the law banquet he'd seen Dru, who promised to recommend him.

1980: On THE EDGE OF NIGHT, April learned she was now a wealthy woman following Margo's funeral.

1983: On GENERAL HOSPITAL, Robert & Holly's marriage of convenience began as they were married quickly in the mayor's office. (Thanks to Michele for the tip)

1992: On THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, Victor informed Nikki and Jack her tumor was not malignant.

Celebrating a birthday today are:
Sally Kemp (ex-Nora, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; ex-Ellen, KNOTS LANDING; ex-Marcia, DYNASTY) - 79
Miguel Ferrer (Andre, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVS; ex-Albert, TWIN PEAKS) - 57
