Maree Cheatham clip

Sadly, most of us have not had the opportunity to see Maree Cheatham's portrayal of Marie Horton unless we were watching the show during the early years. See this clip where Marie Horton has suffered a miscarriage and hallucinates that a baby is crying.


  1. Little questions : when did this storyline aired ? And how old is Maree Cheatham ?
    Don't you think the acting was more sober, temperate at this time than now with the so melodramatic acting, we can see this evolution in all the soap operas (it seems general, it's not only Days)?
    Why this change ?

  2. DOOL and other soaps were much more reality based in the '60s and '70s. The relatively subtle acting (at least subtle compared to the scenery chewing that became commonplace in later years) reflected the more realistic storylines.
