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.

It was the only one soap opera I really loved.
18 November 1999 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I do not know if Soap Opera is inappropriate. In Spanish it's not. My favorites characters were Betty Anderson and Steven Cort. I really fall in love with this beautiful woman. I hope that one day I could get all the chapters and the final TV Movie in a DVD or whatever. I recommend it. I keep this serial in the deep of my heart and soul. I want to say Thank You to all the people responsible for this great TV Show. Sincerely Yours. César Romero (My real Name)
