David Canary, known for his nearly three-decade stint on the ABC soap All My Children, died November 16 from natural causes, his family has announced. He was 77. Born in Elwood, Indiana in 1938, Canary’s acting career began with a recurring role as Dr. Russ Gehrig on Peyton Place in 1965. He would soon go on to portray ranch manager Candy Canaday on the long-running NBC Western Bonanza, a role he held off and on from 1967 to 1973. A string of appearances on television… »
Canary appeared on “All My Children” from 1984-2011 and returned in 2013. He picked up five Daytime Emmys for his dual roles on the soap and was nominated many more times.
He was deliciously bad as Adam Chandler, the powerful head of the family that lived in fictional Pine Valley. He was always at loggerheads with the other baddie, Palmer Cortlandt. The sparks flew when he and Susan Lucci, who played reigning queen Erica Kane got together.
But Canary also played twin brother Stuart Chandler who was angelic and as good as Adam was bad and was the only one who could restrain Adam.
He also had a crossover appearance on ABC’s “One Life to Live.”

Review by Dana Jung.
Today, more than ever, with our shortened attention spans, inundation by multi-media delivery systems, and almost obsessive need for instant information, it is easy to forget the wonderful actors of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s who inspired and influenced us. So many great moments created by sometimes iconic performers live on in the movies and television of certain eras. From Mr. Spock to Archie Bunker, Annie Hall to James Bond, or Mrs. Peel to Lieutenant Columbo, these and other memorable characters fueled everything from fashion choices to sexual fantasies. That’s why the new »

Want to take your hair from sweet to fierce in one fell swoop? Take a page from the Insurgent playbook. Cutting one's hair has long been a powerful statement made by women looking to claim their power. When Mia Farrow's character chopped her hair from long, flowing locks to a tight crop on the TV show Peyton Place in 1966, she explained the change by saying, "I took a look at my little girl hair and decided I didn't like it anymore." Flash forward nearly 50 years later and lobbing off one's hair is still a symbol of strength and independence. In Insurgent, the latest Divergent series installment, heroine Tris is seen with a short pixie cut—a more knowing and tough hair look than the one »
I am ready for Oscar speeches. I am ready for badass Oscar speeches. And here are 10 that remind you what it looks like when a bad-ass wields a gold statue and tells it like it is. 1. Lee Grant remembers what Hollywood did to her. And now they will never forget. Lee Grant, who won a Best Supporting Actress for "Shampoo," was blacklisted in the '50s and had to put her entire career on hold. She eventually rebounded with an Emmy for "Peyton Place" and a couple of Oscar nominations. When the time came to approach the dais, she had reckoning on her mind. Addressing her Oscar, she said, "We had a fight 20 years ago. I think he's changed. I know I haven't." Bam. 2. George Burns was the hottest young star of '75. George Burns picked up an Oscar for "The Sunshine Boys" at the age of 80. And yet, he »
