Jane Wyman's iron grip over the show was allegedly as ruthless as Angela Channing's over the valley. Former co-stars Mel Ferrer, Celeste Holm and Simon MacCorkindale have claimed in the press that Wyman drove them off the show. Most notorious, however, was Wyman's bitter feud with Lana Turner. The two women allegedly hated each other so much they never spoke off set, and scenes between their characters were filmed separately and spliced together in editing. After Turner's character was killed off in the second season, she talked to the press of how Wyman's ugly behavior was due to the fact that Wyman could not accept that her ex-husband Ronald Reagan was then President of the United States.

I love this show and this is a lot coming from a 16 year old. The show is deliciously humorous and dramatic at the same time. The show is headed by Jane Wyman as the conniving and manipulative Angela Channing. I feel as though this is one of the best shows of the 80s along with Dallas, Dynasty, and Knots Landing. The show also had other great actors and characters such as Robert Foxworth as Chase, Susan Sullivan as Maggie, David Selby as Richard, Lorenzo Lamas as Lance, Ana Alicia as Melissa, and Cesar Romero as Peter. The number of guest stars was amazing. The wardrobe was fabulous. This show was a perfect example of prime time soaps in the 80s.
A TOAST TO YOU FALCON CREST AND LONG SHALL YOU LIVE.
