YMMV / Peyton Place

  • Alas, Poor Scrappy: Selena Cross. Basically her entire life, or so we're meant to think.
  • Deader Than Disco: The novel was hugely controversial and popular in the late '50s, but it's mostly forgotten today.
  • Values Dissonance: The town's namesake, Samuel Peyton, was black. This does not please the locals, who of course abuse N-Word Privileges.
