Trivia

Agnes Nixon originally offered her creation to Procter & Gamble in the mid-1960s, but they passed. After Nixon's success with One Life to Live (1968) for ABC, they asked for another series, and Nixon dusted off the old script which had been tucked away in a desk. See more »

This is One of the Greatest Soaps!
23 August 1999 | by brniis77See all my reviews

I have been a fan of All My Children for about 5 years now. I think that this soap is really one of the classics. It has great characters and really great story-lines. I have recently enjoyed the story-line involving Haley, Mateo, and Raquel. I was a little disappointed when they fired Dimitre and most recently Raquel, but I think that whatever happens, the show will stay remain one of the tops in it's field. Please watch this soap daily! You won't be disappointed!
