Peyton Place Part One
Following closely on the widely anticipated release of Part One comes Peyton Place Part Two. This ABC show introduced such taboo topics as extramarital affairs, unwed teen pregnancies, family betrayals, mental illness and even murder to 60s America primetime TV, and in the process became not only a ratings giant, but an enduring symbol of the era it represented.
On September 15, 1964, then fledgling television network ABC began airing a twice weekly prime time serial drama based on the scandalous and sexy best selling book Peyton Place. With brilliant acting by Dorothy Malone, Mia Farrow and Ryan O'Neal among others, this superbly written and directed nighttime soap opera stretched the boundaries of what was considered morally acceptable in the pre sexual revolution 1960s.
