One of the Great TV Daytime Serials
Love of Life back in the early '50's aired at 12:15 EST Monday through Friday on CBS. Roy Windsor, who also produced Secret Storm (4:15 p.m. Monday - Friday) knew how to create interesting character-driven stories. Bad sister Meg and good sister Van with their various conflicts and romantic interests were welcome daily visitors into the homes that had television sets. In 1958 Love of Life expanded to a half-hour show, now starting at noon for a weekday half hour, transplanting Vanessa to New York City and introducing many new characters, particularly actress Tammy and the widowed Bruce Sterling along with his meddlesome in-laws the Carlsons, who owned a paper mill in Rosehill, a suburb of New York. Stories and melodramatic conflicts continued to enthrall the daily audience. Since I was unable to watch the serial after the mid-60's, I can't vouch for what it became, but it left a positive image on daytime drama for those of us who followed the show on a regular basis. Both Love of Life and Secret Storm were giants of daytime when TV was in its infancy.
