Storyline

The original primetime soap took place in the title town, which was founded by the Peyton family, whose members included the Harringtons. Some of the plots involved Rodney Harrington, the oldest son, choosing between bad girl Betty Anderson or fragile Allison MacKenzie. His brother Norman took up with working class Rita Jacks. Allison's mother Connie was keeping a secret about her daughter's birth. People married and divorced, loved and lost. Murder, illicit passion, insanity, and secrets were the staples of Peyton Place.

Trivia

In an interview, Ruth Warrick expressed her discontent in working with Ryan O'Neal, and called him someone "who is so in love with himself that it is pitiful." See more »

Crazy Credits

In the opening credits, the last name of the characters played by Dorothy Malone and Mia Farrow is spelled Mackenzie. In the original novel by Grace Metalious and the 1957 movie, the last name is spelled with a capital K (MacKenzie). There are no reports from the creators on if the name was spelled in the TV series on purpose or by accident. See more »

Not as good as the FILM
15 May 2003 | by (MIAMI, USA) – See all my reviews

I understand the pilot followed the film and book somewhat. The Cross family disappeared when the series arrived in 1964. Rodney did not have a brother in the book. Norman and Evelyn Page and Evelyn were eliminated. Michael Rossi became a Dr. instead of a Principal of a high school. Norman became Rodneys brother in the series. Constance didn't have a husband and she ran a dress shop not a bookstore. The series does not follow the films, the only resemblance to the films are SOME of the characters names. I will take the films over the series any day !!!!!!!! Dorothy Malone and Mia Farrow made the series, when they left "PEYTON PLACE", it went really down hill quick !!!!!!
