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.

This needs to be on Video and DVD!

This show was without a doubt one of the first prime time soap operas in the history of television. I remember watching this series as a kid and also when I was in junior high school(seventh grade). This show was a must see because for one you'll never what is about to occur or happened the next and it was always left viewers in a cliffhanger until either tomorrow or next week for the continuation of the story. When the show aired on ABC-TV in the fall of 1964,viewers got the chance to recognized some of the characters who were in fact behind the drama and scandal that was in fact Peyton Place,but in other words,the series picked up where the first two installments of the movie version("Peyton Place"(1957),and its sequel,"Return To Peyton Place"(1961))left off. In the TV series though,it was in two parts where one part would play on one night,and the next night it would have the conclusion and so forth. Ryan O'Neal and Mia Farrow and Leslie Nielson came during the time when the show was shown in grainy black and white and later in color after Farrow left the series.

During its run only actors Christopher Connelly,Ed Nelson,Barbara Perkins and Tim O'Connor would remain throughout the entire format of the show. All of that change when the show made the transition to color in the fall of 1966 and for the first time the show would have its first black family moving into Peyton Place which were played by Percy Rodriguez and Ruby Dee and their college bound son played by a youthful Glynn Truman. The show had it all....blackmail,murder,jealously,envy,and prejudices all within a half hour(which would change the format of the show again when it moved from ABC to NBC in the fall of 1968 which moved the show to a full hour). The chapters of this soap needs to be out on either video or DVD cause this show was the standard for other prime time soaps to come along before it.
