TV Tuesday: Lana Turner and Jane Wyman on Falcon Crest
Lana Turner and Jane Wyman have it out in this juicy scene from a 1982 episode of Falcon Crest. I miss nighttime soaps like this one. It makes sense to me that so many classic Hollywood stars appeared in them, because these shows were the closest you could get to a 1940s-50s style production in the 1980s. I mean, people dressed for dinner, they acted larger than life and there was lots of melodrama; that's pure old school Hollywood.
I think the only way a show like this could survive today would be as a parody. And I'd take that just to see this kind of crazy glamour on television again!
You can watch the full episode (and nineteen more) here at WB online.
