I also read that some episodes are edited.

That was incorrect information. None of the episodes are edited. They are the COMPLETE episodes from their original CBS broadcasts.

I don't know for sure but what you're describing sounds like the episodes might be time compressed. Do the episodes that you noticed the audio problem on run a little shorter than the rest of the other episodes on the set?

Can't tell. I didn't time them out. And since I do not have the overseas version, I cannot say for sure.

FAMILY REUNION (the episode with Lana Turner) plays fine. It's on Disc 3, episode 2.

You really should buy them all. Even though she is not on season 3 - 4, her character is directly responsible for a lot of the action with Richard and the Cartel.

Bought this one as a blind buy last week, and watched the first episode-  It plays well, except for the daughter of the Robert Foxworth character.  She leaves the man of her dreams behind?  Or does he turn up later in the story?


This one was out when I was in college, so I never watched it- I enjoyed it tonight, and it made me miss the great diversity of programming we used to have on network TV-  Now it's all CSI and reality shows!

No, he wasn't the man of her dreams lol. The fact is that she was supposed to be underage (about 16 or 17) when she was having an affair with that much older man. That's why Cole had such a fit and beat the dickens out of the old coot. He does not turn up later (to my recollection).

Too bad Jane couldn't let her ego over come Lana's star power for the sake of "FALCON CREST" !!! When they were on together  it was like watching  Krystle and Alexis go at it.  Lana should have been a regular on the series. Is it true their scenes were filmed separate because of Jane's jealousy of her ? I know there were problems on the set but were these true or publicity ?  Rumour has it Lana was constantly making demands for her role ??

Then there was a rumour at one time when Anne Baxter died unexpectedly on "HOTEL" Lana was going to step in and play the new owner......

I had read she was going to do season THREE and more episodes.  Then the next thing you know boom she falls victim to the gunslinger ..........

RUMORS. They got along just fine. Also, IMPORTANT NOTE: I have not heard back about the results of my email to the WHV offices, as soon as I hear back from my contact there, I will let everyone know their plans for fixing the DVD's we have. If your box set is fine, let us know that here, too. It is not clear yet if this is a universal problem or a select few box sets in different markets of the country?

Tom,

If they were rumors about conflicts on the set with the two then why was Jacqueline's character axed at the end of season two ?? Turner was a great foil for Jane on the series......

Lana was only supposed to appear in a handful of episodes. When they killed her off, it was because the writers felt the action with the cartel would best serve the story if they centered the action around Richard Channing and Norton Crane, Jacquelinhe's successor. It also gave another dimension to her character in death showing she was ruthless and ambitious and the war criminal she turned outr to be. Again, no feud. Right out of the mouth of Lana TUrner herself. Watch the video.

Thanks so much Tom for the info it was a great interview. Lana looked gorgeous as always !!!

And still thought Lana would have made a great regular on the series.

Too bad, it did not work the series would have had a much better following I think it would have rivaled "DALLAS" and "DYNASTY" !!!
