Trivia

The episode of 22 November 1963 was broken into by CBS to announce the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The actors, however, continued performing (as it was done live until 1975), and a complete, uninterrupted copy of this episode still survives. See more »

Goofs

When Rose is in a Spa in Switzerland and escapes, she ends up in Belgium and Belgian farmers tell her she is in 's-Hertogenbosch. From Switzerland to Belgium is approximately 700 Kilometers/435 Miles. On top on that, 's Hertogenbosch isn't even located in Belgium. It's a town in the Netherlands, adding roughly 100 kilometers/62 miles to her travels on foot. See more »

A fan since the beginning.
20 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As The World Turns started on my birthday in 1956. I was in high school and since the show was only 1/2 hour, I was able to watch it on my lunch hour. I have watched it all these years and really love it. ATWT has produced some great actors and actresses. I loved Meg Ryan as Betsy and Julianne Moore as Franny. I thought Brian Bloome was terrific as Dusty. I was very saddened when the Judge and then Christopher Hughes died. I feel I have grown old with Bob, Kim and Lisa. I wish some of the older actresses could be brought back. I really miss Frannie and Betsy. This year (April 2, 2006) I will have been watching this show for 50 years. So, happy birthday to me and to As The World Turns.
