    Peyton Place (Gilmanton, New Hampshire). GraceMetalious ripped the lid off of the stench-filled community; & they despised her for it. Instead of appreciating the fact that she let some fresh air into the staid, puritanical caldron; the reaction was torrid shunning. How anal can one town be? I’ve interviewed folks there, (who referred to Grace as “Gracie” in an affectionate tone); who quietly seemed happy she wrote what she did.She is buried in Gilmanton Iron Works, Smith Meeting House Cemetery

    Beautiful “jazzy / swing” version of the Waxman composition. Does anyone know where I can get an LP or CD album, of this version?

    I have the soundtrack but I do not have this TV version as done by Lionel Newman.

    The lighting was very bad. OK so it was an old TV show from 1965 in black and white.

    I watched these old episodes when they re-aired on USA network back in the mid-90s. The bl/wh images are from the early days but the music is different. A much different version… credits say Franz Waxman… but the original was mostly violins and woodwinds… it certainly wasn’t in stereo. -This music does sound 1960s… wonder where it came from? Could be wrong but don’t think it was ever used as the closing to the original tv series.

    @britfrenir I saw that even this was from Twentith Century Fox but with out the logo.

  7. britfrenir says:

    I saw that the closing credits were different on an episode and it had Twentieth Century Fox at the end. It lookeed to be a western.

    This was undoutedly from the first season(1964-65)of Peyton Place,when it was the biggest hit for ABC…and the first prime-time soap opera-type series-paving the way for many more.(My mother predicted that the next Peyton Place-type series would be in Connecticut.Turned out it was in Texas.Chuckle!)
