Now that you mention it, I do remember Phil Carey in this! I just wish he'd come back to daytime :(

Before Buchanan and Parmalee, Carey had a fairly impressive movie career on his resume; his feature film debut allowed him to work alongside John Wayne in the Navy actioner Operation Pacific (1951). Other films that followed included I Was a Communist For the FBI (1951), That Woman is Dangerous (1952), Springfield Rifle (1952), Calamity Jane (1953), Pushover (1954), The Long Gray Line (1955), Mister Roberts (1955), Count Three and Pray (1955) and Dead Ringer (1964).
Carey also made early inroads into television with a regular role as Lieutenant Michael Rhodes in the NBC-TV adventure series Tales of the 77th Bengal Lancers (1956-57) and as the titled shamus of ABC’s Philip Marlowe (1959-60). He would make guest appearances on many well-known television dramas: Thriller, The Rifleman, 77 Sunset Strip, Felony Squad, Gunsmoke, Room 222 and many, many more.
Carey’s passing comes only a few weeks after the death of his fellow One Life to Live cast member, Clint Ritchie…who played the role of Clint Buchanan, Asa’s son. (This one managed to get by me, even though I saw it mentioned on Laura’s Miscellaneous Musings.)
So a belated R.I.P. to Mr. Ritchie and a timely one to Mr. Carey. You will both be missed.
