During the original show up through the 1970s, the show primarily covered Dr. Steve Hardy (John Beradino) and his friend, Nurse Jessie Brewer (Emily McLaughlin). Late in the 1970s, the show was doing badly in the ratings, so a new executive producer, Gloria Monty, decided to move the show's focus away from the hospital and onto material more relevant to a younger audience than the stereotypical "bored housewife", thus bringing in Luke and Laura, (Anthony Geary and Genie Francis) and eventually having them marry in a stereotypical fantasy wedding that would not be matched until the real-life marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana.

Jack Crosby, a nephew of The Crosby tribe, was the first art director to design scenery for the new (1963) black and white television daily daytime drama series. The initial set design for a room, looked like an open book, with a right side wing joining a flat center wall, the left wing wall extending the floor plan. Openings for doors and windows were located in various positions on each set. The set's painted color was neutral middle value beige-gray hues, with no wall-paper. Any hint at wall paper, or texture, was provided by a scenic roller paint pattern which was vogue in this era. The scenery height was eight (8'-0") foot high. Usually, network soap sets are ten feet high. All the sets were shallow in depth, minimum furniture and set decoration. Usually pictures were hung across wall expanses to establish an actors movement through the set. Competition from NBC TV and CBS TV daytime drama ratings forced the producers into expanding the physical production elements of the scenery and decoration. Neither NBC TV nor ABC TV used a set decorator. CBS TV was the only network employing and assigning a set decorator to their shows. Like a summer stock theater, scenery was designed, supervised, and decorated by the set designer/art director. Assistant Art Directors were employed after production became more involved, with time management determining additional support positions. In early television, like the theater, the designer was expected to cover everything in his design area. See more »
Why Sage and why Trent? Because if it was just because they were alone. Then their deaths are completely my fault.
No. Georgie, look, you - you have no blame in this, all right? I mean, God, you didn't even want to participate in the stupid seance anyway. And - and how were you supposed to know that some crazy freak was walking around knifing people, huh? Look, if anybody is to blame for this, it's me.

i have been a viewer since 1963, watched in black and white, was 13, and still watching. i have seen them come and go on this show and it's still the best one on TV. it has had it's ups and downs and always manages to come out on top. remember Jesse? Audrey and he sister Lucille? that was back in the day! i do so miss the Luke and laura thing. Luke just isn't Luke without laura. Anthony Geary has only improved with age. Luke is all that and more. GH also has the best looking guys and the sexiest, is Jax gorgeous or what? Jason is sooooooooo smooth, and all that too. it will always be hard for the writers to top the original Luke and Laura storyline,it dosen't get any better then that, but they have kept me watching all these years. to every one that is associated with the show, keep up the good work
