CLASSIC CLIP: Rachel, Alice, Russ, Mary on ANOTHER WORLD 1968
Alice Matthews (Jacqueline Courtney) and Rachel Davis (Robin Strasser) would form one of the greatest rivalries in soap opera history. But in the summer of 1968, Rachel was happily married to Alice's brother, Russ (Sam Groom), and things were relatively friendly between them. Watch a clip(above) from July 1, 1968, which also includes the late Virginia Dwyer as Mary Matthews.

CLASSIC CLIP: Steve Meets Alice on ANOTHER WORLD 1968
Steve Frame (George Reinholt) and Alice Matthews (Jacqueline Courtney) were one of the most popular couples in soap opera history. They first met at Walter Curtin and Lenore Moore's wedding reception in July 1968. Alice was instantly taken with the up-and-coming young businessman and the two of them began spending time together.

Watch a clip below of their very first meeting. The clip also includes their first encounter with Alice's sister-in-law, Rachel Davis Matthews (Robin Strasser).

ANOTHER WORLD: The Story of Steven, Rachel & Alice (Part 1)

user posted image
Another World's Alice Matthews (Jacqueline Courtney) had a long and complicated relationship
with Rachel Davis (Robin Strasser), which started with Rachel's interest in Alice's brother,
Dr. Russ Matthews (Sam Groom).

The Soap Box
Vol. IV No. 7 July 1979
by Bryna Laub

When Rachel Davis regained consciousness in the Emergency Room at Bay City Hospital she couldn't help noticing, despite her total confusion over what had happened to her, that the young doctor bending over her was very handsome. Flashing a reassuring smile he explained that she had fainted while modeling at Bryant's Department Store. Then he introduced himself as Dr. Russell Matthews and indicated the lovely blonde nurse assisting him was his sister, Alice. Read More

Dr. Russ Matthews (Sam Groom) couldn't resist his former patient, Rachel
Davis (Robin Strasser), and the two of them secretly married.

The Soap Box
Vol. IV No. 7 July 1979
by Bryna Laub

(continued from Part 1)
Rachel tried valiantly to make a good impression on Russ's mother but in her eagerness, her distorted picture of the Matthews' social and financial position was more than evident. Mary Matthews tried to set the record straight but Rachel was convinced Mary's simplicity was by choice, that somewhere the coffers were overflowing. Mary and her daughters tried to tell themselves that once Rachel was well Russ would turn his attention to another insecure patient. But deep down they feared that Rachel might have already snared him. Read More

It didn't take long for Alice (Jacqueline Courtney) and her mother (Viginia Dwyer)
to see through Rachel for the scheming, manipulating woman she was.

The Soap Box
Vol. IV No. 7 July 1979
by Bryna Laub

(continued from Part 2)

Rachel tried desperately to fit in with Russ's family but Mary and Alice sensed the artificiality in Rachel's attempts. Jim Matthews, Russ's father, however, was enchanted with Rachel. Out of a need to gain the approval of every man she met to replace the love and approval of her father, Rachel seemed to sense what a man wanted her to be and that's what she became for him. Mary called it twisting Jim around her little finger.

Steven Frame (George Reinholt) and Alice Matthews (Jacqueline Courtney)
began seeing each other frequently but Rachel Davis Matthews (Robin
Strasser) interfered, inadvertently at first..

by Bryna Laub

(continued from Part 3)

Steven and Alice were now seeing each other often. To Steven, Alice represented the culmination of everything he had worked for, the very reason he had fought his way off that dirt farm in Oklahoma and up the ladder to overwhelming success. Alice was a real lady, the very symbol of respectability and quality.

Jacqueline Courtney as Alice Matthews and George Reinholt as
Steven Frame.

The Soap Box
Vol. IV No. 7 July 1979
by Bryna Laub

(continued from Part 4)

Rachel's campaign began with visits to Steven's office, ostensibly to enlist his help in soliciting donations for the Hospital Charity Drive. Understanding her need to show Liz Matthews and the other Bay City society matrons she could compete on their ground, Steven provided leads to his business associates who gave Rachel hefty contributions as soon as she mentioned his name. And realizing Rachel was intentionally timing her visits at noon, Steven indulgently took the hint and occasionally invited her to lunch, aware that these few glimpses into his high-powered world meant so much to her.

In the morning Rachel expected a continuation of the night before, the most exciting and passionate night of her life. She was confused when Steven matter-of-factly sent her on her way with no plans for a later meeting. When she then found he was constantly unavailable to her frequent calls she began to worry, but then he set a lunch date with her.

(continued from Part 6)
The next day Alice went to Steven's office and in those impersonal surroundings told him of Rachel's accusations. Steven told her it was impossible but when Alice pushed, he admitted he'd succumbed to Rachel's seduction that one night only, explaining he and Alice had apparently broken off permanently and Rachel had separated from Russ. He begged Alice to let it go, to accept the chances were overwhelming that the baby was Russ's and to go on loving him.

(continued from Part 7)
Rachel departed for Somerset immediately, ignoring the official opening of Dan Shearer and Russ's new clinic the following day. After all, why should she wait for Russ's sake? He had gone ahead with the clinic, a labor of love in a low-income area, over Rachel's bitter objections. She had been horrified to learn the fees would be based on ability to pay and that Dan and Russ would never earn large incomes as long as they ran it. She felt cheated and didn't care who knew it.

George Reinholt played Steven Frame on Another World.

by Bryna Laub

(continued from Part 8)
It was Russ himself who inadvertently told Alice Jamie was Steven's son after all! One evening, after a hard day at the clinic, Russ found himself unwilling to go home and face Rachel's sarcastic resentment of his work. Since her hopes for great wealth were dashed, Rachel hadn't even made an effort to pretend any love for Russ. The only reason he even bothered to go home at all was Jamie. He visited Alice and confided all this to her. He reminisced that he and Rachel had only one brief period of real happiness, the time she came back to him and they conceived Jamie. When Russ mentioned that until the reconciliation he and Rachel hadn't lived as husband and wife for weeks, Alice realized that for once in her life Rachel had told the truth. Jamie was Steven's son.

Now the big battle was coming up. Russ had agreed to pay for a divorce and, for appearance's sake, to let Rachel file on grounds of desertion. But that was all--no alimony, no child support. Rachel, of course, wasn't going to let him get off that easily. After all, hadn't she slaved and sacrificed while he was an intern and then a resident? She had been a dutiful wife and she was going to get everything she was entitled to.

Russ's hurt was healed as well. He had fallen in love with one of his patients, Cindy Clark, a warm, sweet, loving girl who was everything Rachel was not. And out of his love for Cindy came true forgiveness in Russ's heart. He wrote to Alice that he no longer blamed Steven. In fact, he no longer blamed Rachel as he should have seen her for what she was and not been blinded by her deceptions and her wiles. Marry Steven if you really love him, he advised his sister, and don't let anything stand in the way of your happiness.

Steven and Alice finally married on September 24, 1971, more
than three years after they met at Walter and Lenore Curtin's
wedding reception.

(continued from Part 11)
It was the Curtins who finally helped Alice put the ghost of Rachel's interference to rest. They invited her for the evening and gently explained that Steven had financed Ted out of love for HER and for their future together. Only by making sure that Rachel had no reason to come to him for money could he put her out of their lives, and there was nothing he wouldn't do to make sure that happened. Suddenly, for the first time in a year, it was clear to Alice. The problem wasn't Rachel or even Jamie, it was herself and her attitude toward their problems.
