    @dtw1958 Yes, sadly, she did die. In this scene, Eunice was confronted by Jennifer, her husband’s mistress, who decided to shoot her in cold blood. Which is a shame.

  2. dtw1958 says:

    I read an earlier comment that Eunice was in the courtroom and her character didnt die?????? Her character did die didnt she? Confused here.

    This one scene is better than anything I’ve seen on a soap in at least five years.

  4. TheTvstuff says:

    WHAT a scene!! perfection. I wish soaps were like that nowadays too instead of the snoozefests and boredomvilles that they are…

  5. TimothySEnglish says:

    Great mood music to set the tone… still holds up very well after 34 years.

  6. usesid says:

    wasn’t John charged with Eunice’s murder? I remember Jennifer confessing to the murder in the courtroom. Is that correct?

    @PommieDawg ooopsie correcting my own post here … maybe it was the summer of 80 then sorry for any confusion.

  8. PommieDawg says:

    @phoenix0699 now 2nd reply in regards to Renata… I don’t remember all the specifics, but they were living in a new high-rise building, Henderson Towers (I think was the name), and whoever built the building and whatever, cut alot of corners. I think this happened in the summer of ’79. The man I think was Martin Tournier or something like that, and the baby was Renata’s. I was bummed when she died :(
    Also, I do believe it was Martin’s cigarette that accidently started the fire…

  9. PommieDawg says:

    @phoenix0699 this happened after her going thru the glass door. This happened in Oct or Nov of ’76. I remember that this episode aired on a Monday, and my sister had to take my bro in law to get his license back, so I rigged up a cassette recorder so she could at least hear the audio.

    A lot of talking about sitting in the first few min of this scene. Lol! Guess they had to find a way to fill up the half hour… However, this was when Search was on top of it’s game… Unlike the shambles it had become by the time of it’s cancellation.

  11. BigSingh says:

    @TimothySEnglish Yeah, true, but as it didn’t air in Sacramento for most of its NBC years, I thanked God for fringe viewing. I had picked up SEARCH from NBC affiliates and independents outside of Sacramento. So, I still kept up.

  12. TimothySEnglish says:

    @BigSingh yes it was a foolish move by CBS and P&G to allow Search to move to NBC. It had decent ratings at CBS (about a 6.8, soaps would kill for those numbers today) but CBS apparently didnt see any value in keeping it as part of their line-up then. Too bad, we the viewers suffered.

  13. BigSingh says:

    @harlee490 LOVE OF LIFE was canceled in 1980 which allowed Y&R to expand to an hour. SEARCH was dropped in 1982 to make room for CAPITOL. It moved to NBC where most affiliates didn’t air it.

  14. thug00187 says:

    this is back when a soap characters death was actually respectful. It was a symbol of your talent and a statement that your character could not be replaced, so what better way to send them out than the character’s death.

  15. Tommy6583 says:

    SFT had a great cast in the mid 1970′s such as Morgan Fairchild, Ann Williams, Mary Stuart, Larry Haines, Anthony George, Val Dufour and John Cunningham just to name a few. They were talented actors.

  16. TheAngiehubbard says:

    Michael Nouri Debuts as Caleb McGraw on (ALL MY CHILDREN) May 24th watch weekdays on ABC!

  17. Soapking1965 says:

    Wrong. Y&R became an hour after CBS canceled LOVE OF LIFE in 1980.

  18. TimothySEnglish says:

    @harlee490 You mean when the show went to NBC right?

  19. vicehoundelite says:

    Rest in Piece Ann Williams :-( she was so beautiful

  20. harlee490 says:

    SFT was great soap until CBS canceled it to expand Y&R to an hour. Then the lost contact when it went NBC, our station didn’t carry it here. This was the hey day of SFT when it was on at 1230, even when CBS moved it to 230, it did lose some viewers but not like it did when it went to CBS.

  21. SueSnell says:

    Are you going to sit down? Where? Anywhere? Over there? That’s fine. How’s this? Just fine. Well, aren’t you going to sit down?

    If only I could write like this! LOL

  22. ashleyw34m says:

    Yes, Renata was Travis’ half-sister (same father). She married David Sutton and had a baby girl before perishing in a fire. The baby was the result of a rape. David eventually left town with the little girl.

  23. dimpledabble says:

    Yes Renata Sutton. I beleive she was with Travis????? I was young too, and I beleve she died in a fire

  24. phoenix0699 says:

    Is this before or after her fall through the glass door? I also remember a lady with long hair I think her name was Renata or something like that dying in a fire I was only seven years old at the time & my mom was crying. I also remember the man that was with Renata escaping the fire with a baby & the man giving the baby to another woman that was gather outside with a crowd. Can someone please help fill me in on that storyline or was it another soap. thanks
