Remembering Agnes Nixon 1922 - 2016



Agnes Nixon, who died Wednesday at age 93, was best known as the creator of the daytime soap operas, One Life to Live, All My Children and Loving (it was her hand that opened the photo album in AMC's original opening sequence).

She was also the head writer of many soaps, including Search for Tomorrow (1951-56), Guiding Light (1958-66), Another World (1965-69), One Life to Live (1968-73), All My Children (1970-82, 1989-92, 1995, 1999-01) and Loving (1985-87, 1993-94). And she created the 1981 ABC miniseries, The Manions of America, starring Pierce Brosnan and Kate Mulgrew.

Below I've selected some videos to celebrate Agnes Nixon's life and career.

Groovy Giveaway: You and I on DVD



Courtesy of Breaking Glass Pictures, this week's Groovy Giveaway is three DVDs of the German-language LGBT drama, You and I, which will be released on DVD and On Demand on September 27.

“Endearing, affecting and gently pulsing with erratic chemistry” (MQFF), You and I follows two best friends, Jonas and Phillip, on a summer road trip through Berlin. The fact that Phillip is gay has never been an issue for either of them. However, when they pick up a hitchhiker named Boris, who shows Jonas some interesting spots and starts to make moves on Phillip, the platonic friendship of the two starts to fray. Maybe three's a crowd after all? By the end of the summer, things between Jonas and Phillip won't ever be the same again.

You and I is an absolutely beautiful and haunting summer tale,” says Breaking Glass Co-President Richard Ross.

To enter to win this Groovy Giveaway, email your name and address to deepdish73@gmail.com. Winners must have a US mailing address, and entries close at midnight on Thursday, September 29 (CST).
