Continuing Story


“Continuing Story,” or: Taking the Curse off a Premise

The first half of the first season of Peyton Place will be released on DVD on May 19th (the rest of the season will be released later this year). Apart from the fame of the individual cast members — it made major stars out of Ryan O’Neal and Mia Farrow, and a second-tier star out of Barbara Parkins — this is a very important show historically, one of the key shows in the development of the U.S. prime-time drama.
