"Today in Soap Opera History" is a collection of the most memorable, interesting and influential events in the history of scripted, serialized programs. From birthdays and anniversaries to scandals and controversies, every day this column celebrates the soap opera in American culture.

1949: On The Guiding Light, Bert Miller (Ann Shepherd) married Bill Bauer (Lyle Sudrow).
1957: On The Edge of Night, Peter Dalton (Stephen Elliot) blasted Da Bruce Thompson (Brett Morrison) during his television speech for having an affair with Ruth Sherman. He also used what Ed (Les Damon) had said to make it look as if Thompson's own staff members had lost faith in him.
When looking at eighties action heroes Jean-Claude Van Damme managed to make a name for himself in a genre built upon already big names and even bigger egos. Although A.W.O.L. (aka Lionheart) was released in 1990 I think it is fair to still class it as an eighties movie, the fashions shown on-screen pretty much confirm it (they are bad). Released this week on Blu-ray as part of 101 Films Cult Movie Collection it stands as a perfect example of everything that made Van Damme a star of the action genre.
When Lyon Gaultier discovers his brother is injured and the Foreign Legion with which
Directed by Sheldon Lettich.
Starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Harrison Page, Deborah Rennard, Brian Thompson, Lisa Pelikan, Ashley Johnson, Abdel Qissi and Eric Karson.
A French Foreign Legion deserter takes to street fighting to help pay his murdered brother’s wife’s debts whilst trying to avoid capture.
Sandwiched between the classic Kickboxer and the largely under-appreciated Death Warrant, A.W.O.L. (or Lionheart if you’re in the Us) sees Jean-Claude Van Damme on fine form as Lyon Gaultier, a soldier in the French Foreign Legion who receives a letter saying that his brother has been set on fire by drug dealers and is lying in a Los Angeles hospital with not a lot of hope for recovery. Escaping from his camp after being refused leave by his oddly angry superior officer, Lyon stows away on a ship to America but ends up in New York so,
The Crash writer and the former Dallas star wed in 1997 but split in 2010.
The pair has now filed for divorce, but remain on amicable terms, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.
The Canadian moviemaker bought a bachelor pad in the Big Apple after the couple separated, the publication reports.
Haggis and Rennard have no children together.
There’s no Pam — Victoria Principal long ago left “Dallas.” And there’s no April (Sheree J. Wilson). Now it’s Mary Alice, er. Brenda, who offed herself on “Desperate Housewives” but stuck around to narrate the show. On “Seinfeld,” Brenda was Elaine’s friend Sue Ellen–yes, Sue Ellen, “Dallas” fans–Mischke, who appeared in four episodes including “The Betrayal”–the backwards episode about the trip to her wedding in India, and “The Bra-less Wonder.” Not only that, Strong was on the original “Dallas,” playing a one night stand with Cliff.
HollywoodNews.com: The New Yorker– venerable and respected–has taken on the Church of Scientology.
Lawrence Wright’s piece, called “The Apostate: Paul Haggis vs. the Church of Scientology,” chronicles the Oscar winning screenwriter and film director’s departure from Scientology after 34 years. It’s something this reporter has written about often, not only Haggis’s exit but that of other Hollywood stars. Wright goes even further: he has actor Josh Brolin describe his brief encounter with Scientology. It scared him. Brolin–smart, respected–has taken a big chance here because Scientology is vindictive. They’ve already called him a liar less than 24 hours since his anecdote was published.
I know Josh Brolin, and he’s no liar. He says he saw John Travolta try to “heal” Marlon Brando using Scientology techniques. “It was f–ing bizarre,” Brolin said.

The "Gladiator" actor, who portrays a man plotting his wife's escape in the upcoming movie, came in all black ensemble. He was not seen coming with real-life spouse Danielle Spencer, but his on-screen wife Elizabeth Banks was showing up that night.
Another female cast Olivia Wilde also supported the Tuesday event, and so did director Paul Haggis who was accompanied by wife Deborah Rennard. Meanwhile, Gerard Butler and Adrien Brody joined the crowd as celebrity guests.
