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.

This Is The Continuing Story Of Peyton Place
7 August 2013 | by strong-122-478885See all my reviews

First aired on TV in the Fall of 1964, this scandal-ridden, prime-time soap opera was notable for pushing the boundaries of what was considered morally acceptable in the pre-sexual revolution of the early 1960s.

Set in the quaint, picture-perfect, little, New England town of Peyton Place, what went on behind closed doors was enough to shock many delighted viewers right out of their socks and keep them coming back for more.

From adultery, to teen pregnancy, to mental illness, and, yes, to even murder, Peyton Place delivered the dirt in spades.

Filmed in b&w, Peyton Place's episodes have a running time of approx. 25 minutes and feature such a good looking cast of actors as - Mia Farrow, Ryan O'Neal, Dorothy Malone, Ed Nelson and Barbara Parkins.
