Another World Legend George Reinholt Dead at 73





The daytime soap opera community is mourning the loss of one of its brightest stars. George Reinholt, who shot to superstardom as Steve Frame on Another World in the 60's and 70's, reportedly died of cancer on Nov. 11. He was 73.

Long before there was a Luke, or a Laura on ABC Daytime's General Hospital, NBC's Another World skyrocketed in the Nielsens, when Agnes Nixon created the tortured love triange of good girl Alice Matthews (the late Jacqueline Courtney), self-made hunk Steve Frame and scheming maneater from the wrong side of the tracks, Rachel Davis (first Robin Strasser, then Victoria Wyndham).

Following a controversial exit from AW in 1975, Reinholt and leading lady Courtney joined the cast of ABC's One Life to Live for a stint. To read his complete obituary, click here.

    My mom LOVED original recipe Steve Frame, absolutely loved him. I’ll make sure she gets this story and also the obit. FYI, i think Irna Philips created the Rachel/Steve/Alice triangle, no?

    Actually Iowahawkeye, it was Agnes Nixon that created Steve/Alice/Rachel story. In fact Rachel was based on Agnes’ character Erica Kane from her as yet to be made into a soap bible All My Children. She created this role to be mixed up with Steve and Alice and Russ Matthews. That triangle was one of the most popular stories of the early 70s. It was basically on the front burner for 5 years. Steve and Alice were an early super couple.

    I am sorry to hear about George Reinholt dying. Now both he and Jaquie Courtney are gone. It is pretty sad. They brought alot of pleasure to many fans but situations kept them from continuing in the soap world later on.

    Oddly enough and happily we still have both of our Rachel’s still with us. Although I wish we would hear more from Victoria Wyndom! Someone get her back on tv please! There have been so many of the 70s cast that have passed away. One of the best casts daytime ever produced.
