Days of our Lives 45th Anniversary Treasury is an unprecedented photographic journey behind the scenes of the longest running scripted program in NBC's history, Days of our Lives. Using never-before-seen images of cast, crew, sets and styling from 1965 to 2010, the proverbial "4th wall" is broken for an extraordinary look inside the studio, including hair and make-up routines, wardrobe fittings, technical preparation, and taping of an episode, all until the director says "it's a wrap!" Additionally, original pages from scripts, archived photos and some of the earliest set designs are combined with contemporary elements to vividly demonstrate how Days of our Lives's past has truly set the stage for current and future success.
Days of our Lives first premiered in 1965 and expanded to a one-hour 10 years later. The show's success derives from its commitment to excellence in storytelling-supported by a diverse ensemble of performers. Days of our Lives is produced by Corday Productions Inc. in association with Sony Pictures Television.
Customer Reviews of Days of Our Lives 45 Years
EXCELLENT BOOK (from someone who is very picky)7/15/2011
I'm very choosy about what I like and dislike; therefore, many of my reviews tend toward the negative. Also, with this economy I can only buy a few new books yearly. This is only my 3rd and probably my last new book purchase this year. But I am totally satisfied with this book of photos. Yes, many of the pictures are current (2010) with some from the 80s and some from the 60s. I also own Lorraine Zenka's DAYS OF OUR LIVES books from 1995 and 2002 so I am glad to have another book of DAYS OF OUR LIVES with more recent pictures. There are even pictures of characters that came back only for Mrs. Horton's funeral. The characters I am referring to are not regulars on the show at the moment and have not been on the show for a long time. There is an old picture of the Horton living room from the 60s and later in the book there is a photo of the same living room from 2010. It was interesting to compare the changes of this set. I will enjoy looking at this book for years to come.
