Today we focus on some classic Daytime trivia involving a classic actress Ms. Susan Sarandon. Long before her Oscar bid for “Dead Man Walking,” or she went cliff diving with Geena Davis in “Thema & Louise,” or she climbed into bed with Michele Pfeiffer and Cher as “Witches of Eastwick,” and even before her cult following the classic “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” diehard Daytime fans may remember her as Patrice Kahlman on “A World Apart” and/or as the murderous drifter, Sarah Fairbanks, on “Search for Tomorrow.”
Daytime Television has a strong history of presenting serious issues, ranging from civil rights to rape and illness. So, it should be no surprise that Miss Sarandon, a woman who is known for advocacy, would be tackling the subject of being a single mother in this 1971 Daytime drama.
