The article is a rehash of the same old, same old. But the photo is to die for!
Zsa Zsa Gabor guested on As The World Turns in 1981 as Lydia Marlowe, sister of Miranda Marlowe (played by Elaine Princi, who would go on to sub for Robin Strasser as Dorian on OLTL), the exotic, European drug smuggler who married... Bob Hughes?
Of her brief visit to Oakdale, Gabor observed, "I never have worked so hard and fast in all my life. I just hope I looked OK."
Pictured with Gabor above is a very, very young Anthony Herrera (James). James was smuggling contraband Egyptian jewels through his then-wife, Barbara's, store, Fashions. When that didn't prove to be adequately lucrative, he added drugs to his repertoire. When the organization he was working for threatened James' life (yes, boys and girls, there was a time when James Stenbeck was actually scared of someone else), he tried to turn state's evidence by taping his conversations with Miranda. This story ultimately led to the syndicate's kingpin, the infamous Mr. Big, and, in a roundabout way, to Tom and Margo's romance. (Full story, here.)
