The Brighter Day is a long running post-war soap opera that had its beginnings in Joyce Jordan, MD when Joyce welcomed Liz Dennis into her melodrama. Liz quickly became a dominant and popular character, overshadowing Joyce and leading to the discontinuation of Joyce's program. Liz (with her unending maternal instincts) and her sisters, Althea (selfish, lovely and dramatic, wants to be in the theater), Barbara (the teenager also known as "Babby), and Patsy, live in the home of Reverend Richard Dennis, who struggles to be both their mother and father. A true soapie, this program is brought to you by Dreft, America's favorite brand for dishes. This collection is also part of the Rare Soap Operas Collection.
