* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/BetteDavis was originally cast as hotel owner Laura Trent in the pilot in hopes she would be a regular. However, Davis' declining health and advanced age (75 at that point) led to former ''Film/AllAboutEve'' co-star Creator/AnneBaxter being cast as her sister-in-law Victoria Cabot as a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute.[[note]]Originally this was intended to be done until Davis' health improved; only for the Laura Trent character to be [[PutOnABus made an offscreen character]][[/note]] In a bit of irony, Davis not only outlived Baxter (who died eight days after suffering a stroke in December 1985) but upon her death in October 1989 had outlasted the series itself by nearly a year and a half.
