Kim Novak played Kit Marlowe, which was the pseudonym that Harry Cohn, CEO of Columbia Studios, suggested she should change her name to when she was a young starlet. Novak supplied the writers other inside jokes when they were naming Kit's aliases: Kit's real name is Susan Cameron, the name of Novak's agent during her time on the set. Another alias, Madeleine McKittrick, was a combination of the first name of one of her characters in Vertigo and the McKittrick hotel on Eddy Street in San Francisco where Vertigo's Maddy lived.

Falcon Crest was such a great show! It stood apart from serious-Dallas and campy-Dynasty and rivoted viewers for 9 seasons. Headed by Jane Wyman, the cast and crew rose to the challenge of taking their place beside the classic dramas of Dallas, Dynasty and Knots Landing. With gorgeous on location photography and crisp screenplays....the show was able to capture its own following. Currently airing on SoapNet, this vintage drama has finally been uncorked!
