The Best of Everything
March 30, 1970 – September 25, 1970
The Best of Everything is an American daytime soap opera which aired on ABC from March 30, 1970 to September 25, 1970. The series was a spin-off of the 1959 film of the same name and the novel that spawned it.
The show focuses on the young secretaries and their lives of an intense publishing firm: Linda, April, Kim, and Barbara. They were tormented by their ruthless head of editor, Amanda Key, and counseled by the warm and loving Violet Jordan. Although the soap opera was short-lived, there were several plotlines, including Kim being brutally attacked by a man who turned out to be Squirrel. The series also revolved around Barbara, who had become depressed since her marriage failed.
