Lawrence P. Casey,
Set in the town of Bancroft, "Bright Promise" dealt with the lives of the students and faculty at Bancroft College, in the town of Bancroft. Resembling many other soap operas, the main storyline dealt with cheating wives and murder.Written by
In developing the story line, Susan Brown's role as 'Martha Ferguson' was placed in a jail cell for six weeks. Gloria Monte and her Art Director Hub Braden discussed the set's requirements; a bed, a wash sink, a toilet (acting as a form of a chair for motivation), and a bench. "Martha" had visitors in her jail cell where her lawyer and friends would meet to discuss the case! After taping scenes in the jail set, for four weeks, Gloria received word from NBC (NY) Standards and Practices that the toilet had to be struck off the set! How do you strike a toilet that has had a dominate presence! Gloria had the crew move the toilet off the original position, two feet, each show, for one week; walking the prop each day, off to the left side of the set; the toilet eventually disappeared! NBC Television (NY) Executives finally were satisfied! "Martha's" master bedroom set had twin beds, instead of a king size bed frame, again, because Standards and Practices did not want a single bed for a married couple on a day time drama! Nor did Martha ever get a single bed frame in the two year series run. But, she did get out of jail! See more »
The man shown in the photos labeled "Mark Miller" in "Bright Promise" is/was Mark Lincoln Miller, an openly gay actor who was a friend of George Nader and Rock Hudson. He never married and had no children, as one might expect.
The Mark Miller who actually appeared in "Bright Promise" was a TV actor and producer and also the father of actress Penelope Ann Miller and her siblings and the husband of their mother, of course. This is the man who resembled Dan Rather, except for Mark's having blue eyes. He later did TV commercials, some of which were for a headache medication (Excedrin?) from the late 1970s to perhaps the 1990s. Please contact Penelope Ann Miller to verify this.
There is/was an actor named Mark Jeffrey Miller who was connected with the "Cold Mountain" film, but he is a completely different individual.
