Guiding Light takes place in the fictional Midwestern town of Springfield. In its early years the stories centered on the middle class Bauer family, but later the wealthy Spauldings, Chamberlains, and Lewises, along with the working class Reardons and others, took their own places of prominence, though the Bauers remained the heart of the show.

Guiding Light was the longest-running drama series in history. It began on radio, as "The Guiding Light", on January 25, 1937, and originally revolved around Rev. Dr. John Ruthledge (played by Arthur Peterson) and his congregation. CBS canceled it in 1939, 1941, 1942, 1944, and 1946. Each time, letter-writing campaigns led to the show's return. It was on radio and television from June 30, 1952 to June 30, 1956; the actors had to perform scripts twice a day. Its first color broadcast was September 11, 1967. The first 30 minute broadcast was September 9, 1968. The first hour-long broadcast was June 16, 1975. The final episode aired September 18, 2009. See more »
[Beth has kidnapped Alan and Gus and is holding them in a cabin]
Did you ever see that movie "Ghost," where the guy dies and his wife is all vulnerable, and then the best friend moves in on her. That is so Mallet. He's just honing in on Harley because she's so vulnerable.

No, no, ...

I have watched Guiding Light long enough to know that Kim Zimmer is the most talented actress there is on tv. She is awesome in that she draws viewers into her performance and makes them feel what the character Reva Shayne is feeling. The show is one of the best of all time, the writing is unique and centers around long time Springfield families. Guiding Light is the longest running daytime drama and I think that says a lot about the quality of the show. With actors and actresses like Kim Zimmer, Robert Newman, Beth Ehlers, Grant Alexander, Jerry ver Dorn and plenty others, the show has just what it needs to be successful for many more years to come!
