This scene is taken from the final episode in which Rachel Welles (Leigh-Taylor Young) appeared. Actually, it’s not Rachel and Rodney Harrington (Ryan O’Neal) kissing, because Rachel has lost her mind and thinks she is Allison Mackenzie, Rodney’s first girlfriend. Interesting fact: Ryan O’Neal and Leigh Taylor Young were married in real life, so the passion must be real! I do not own the footage. Video Rating: 5 / 5
This episode of HCTB originally aired on December 18, 1968. For those of you who have never seen this delightful 60′s series, it was loosely based on the film Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. In this version, in order to keep his mountain from falling into the hands of Aaron Stempel (Mark Lenard), Jason Bolt (Robert Brown) and his two brothers Joshua (David Soul) and Jeremy (Bobby Sherman) had to bring 100 eligible brides from Massachusetts to Seattle where they had to stay for a year. While a premise such as this could have easily turned out to be something silly, it turned out to be just the opposite, often tackling controversial issues along the way. Yet, it managed to stay very entertaining. The first season is available on DVD and we’re patiently waiting for the release of the second season but I’m not sure it will ever see the light of day. Anyway, in keeping with the Christmas them, this is the Christmas episode from the first season. Although it’s okay, I don’t think it’s a true indicator of what the series was about.
A 1968 scene of the primetime soap opera Peyton Place (1964-1969). In this scene, newlywed Rodney and Betty share a very romantic moment in their new home. Note that they are obviously talking about sex, without mentioning it directly. I do not own the material! No infringement intended!
The juicy biography of the scandalous novelist who lifted the lid off a New England town Indian summer is like a woman. Ripe, hotly passionate, but fickle, she comes and goes as she pleases so that one is never sure whether she will come at all, nor

A 1968 scene of the primetime soap opera Peyton Place (1964-1969). This is the second time Rodney and Betty marry. They previously married briefly in 1964. Betty then married Steven, but divorced him to marry Rodney yet again, taking place in this scene. For those unfamiliar with the 1968 characters, in the beginning you can see Marsha (Barbara Rush) and Carolyn Russell (Tippy Walker). Rodney and Betty are married by Reverend Tom Winter (Robert Hogan). Note that Julie Anderson (Kasey Rogers) is present at the wedding. It was her first and only appearance (including an arrival in an earlier episode) since Rogers departed the show in 1966, and also the rare episode which includes her in color. The darkhaired man walking in, in the middle of the ceremony, and sitting in the back, is Steven (James Douglas), who, by the time, is still very much in love with Betty. Other characters present at the wedding are Norman (Christopher Connelly) as the best man, Rita (Patricia Morrow) as the maid of honor, and the guests include Ada Jacks (Evelyn Scott), Eli Carson (Frank Ferguson), Leslie Harrington (Paul Langton) and Michael Rossi (Ed Nelson).
