Trivia

In developing the story line, Susan Brown's role as 'Martha Ferguson' was placed in a jail cell for six weeks. Gloria Monte and her Art Director Hub Braden discussed the set's requirements; a bed, a wash sink, a toilet (acting as a form of a chair for motivation), and a bench. "Martha" had visitors in her jail cell where her lawyer and friends would meet to discuss the case! After taping scenes in the jail set, for four weeks, Gloria received word from NBC (NY) Standards and Practices that the toilet had to be struck off the set! How do you strike a toilet that has had a dominate presence! Gloria had the crew move the toilet off the original position, two feet, each show, for one week; walking the prop each day, off to the left side of the set; the toilet eventually disappeared! NBC Television (NY) Executives finally were satisfied! "Martha's" master bedroom set had twin beds, instead of a king size bed frame, again, because Standards and Practices did not want a single bed for a married couple on a day time drama! Nor did Martha ever get a single bed frame in the two year series run. But, she did get out of jail! See more »
