Can you name these vintage soap operas by their cast photos?

This one is loaded with melodrama.

Soap operas: We all watched them after The Price is Right when we were home sick. These small-screen melodramas were a major part of daytime television (and radio!) for decades. Sometimes, the more daring ones would air during primetime, too, of course.

Dozens of soap operas aired on the networks over the years, and provided breakthrough roles for famous faces. Think you can name some of them by their cast photos alone? Good luck!
