When the daytime soap world gathers at the Sheraton New York Hotel tonight for the 19th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, the main schmooze for once won't be Susan Lucci's 12-time failure to win the best actress statuette. The buzz instead will be about the ABC soap opera "One Life to Live," whose new producer, Linda Gottlieb, has been making a controversial attempt to revolutionize the stagnant daytime soap opera form.

I was reading the movie ads the other day and it made me long for the good old days. Back then, by neddies, a movie ad meant something. It said things like "Doom Alley," then "Robert Mitchum" and "Jane Russell," then offered a lurid headline like: She was a 12 o'clock girl in a 9 o'clock town.

"I'm tired of being a freak," transgender nightclub performer Calpernia Addams says at one point in "Soldier's Girl." The freaks instead are two soldiers locked away in Ft. Leavenworth after the murder of Addams' lover, Pfc. Barry Winchell, as he lay sleeping in a corridor of his barracks. Their sweet, tender, sexy romance, and its tragic consequences, are the essence of this haunting, troubling Showtime film ripped from 1999 headlines.

"Their bond will go on forever," says Erika Slezak of the convoluted relationship between Victoria Lord Carpenter, the character she plays on "One Life to Live," and Dorian Lord Vickers, played by Robin Strasser. "It is the strongest relationship on the show. What connects these two has been there from the beginning, and no matter how many writers we've had, they have always been intertwined."

"While Reverend Andrew Carpenter, the character I've played for the past four years on 'One Life to Live,' is everything I aspire to be." Krimmer finds it almost impossible to compare his former role and his current role. "Andrew has so much strength that I wish I had," he adds.
