Storyline

One Life to Live premiered in 1968, centering on the lives of the citizens of the fictional town of Llanview, PA. Concentrating on the wealthy Lord family, and the middle-class Woleks and Rileys, the show was one of the first daytime dramas to depict people from all sorts of backgrounds. The show was the first to depict an interracial relationship, and among the first to explore drug addiction. It has also depicted dissociative identity disorder, cultism, out-of-body experiences, international espionage, time travel, and even underground cities! Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The role of Kelly Cramer was originally going to be a woman in her late-20s. Former Another World (1964) actress Alexandra Wilson was offered the role, but she eventually turned it down. When Gina Tognoni got the role, Kelly was re-written as a girl in her late-teens. See more »

Quotes

Rex Balsom: [talking about Tommy] We didn't do anything... except find out and not tell anyone about him being a kidnapped baby. That would make us accessories.
Adriana Colón Cramer #2: I don't like that word, accessory.
Rex Balsom: I thought you loved it. With your furry vest and fuzzy hat.

The Greatest Television Show Of All Time!
3 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ONE LIFE TO LIVE on ABC, Brought to you by the Colgate-Palmolive Company, is the BEST TV show, or soap opera, that has EVER been on the air. Two O' Clock P.M. has always been my favorite hour in the day; the one hour that I can be in Llanview, and check in on everyone... Viki, Bo, Asa, Dorian, Nora... If there was no ONE LIFE TO LIVE I would be much less happy. The stories are always intriguing and never boring. Even after nearly 38 years, the story lines are as fresh and exciting as they were in 1968. Agnes Nixon is a pure genius for creating such a gem in the realm of television. One Life To Live is perfect in every way. Its actors are superb; Erika Slezak has won more Emmys for her role as Victoria Lord Riley Burke Riley Buchannon Buchannon Davidson than any other actor in the history of television. The theme to One Life To Live as well as the other music by David Nitctern is magnificent too. Always tune in at 2:00 EST to ABC to watch One Life To Live.
