When did the daytime-soap version of Love Is a Many Splendored Thing air, and why was it canceled?
LIAMST, which was created by Irna Phillips, ran from Sept. 18, 1967 to March 23, 1973. The cast featured such future soap stars as Constance Towers, Beverlee McKinsey, Leslie Charleson and Leon Russom. Christopher Schemering's incredible Soap Opera Encyclopedia reports that the show wasn't canceled due to low ratings; instead, Schemering says the show was dropped due to mismanagement. Sound familiar?
