Hi,
I'm a writer in Australia working on a book about Kevin Coughlin who appeared in "Pride of a Man". I'm reaching out to see if anyone on the boards has any contact with any of the living actors or crew members from that episode. I've spoken with Steve Cory and Anne Helm, but haven't been able to find Barbara Hunter, Heidi Musselman or William Corcoran. Any help would be much welcomed.
With thanks,

It was Joe's turn to play teacher. Some of the girls had a crush on their teacher :wink I wonder why. :shrug Of course there were some troublemakers that caused a bit of trouble for Joe and they were sent home. Their angry father beat Joe up until the troublemakers stopped him. :mad That's not the way to treat the teacher! Great episode! :laughing

Loved Joe as a teacher. I definitely would have been one of the ones who had a crush on him. I have to say though I would have preferred PR to be my teacher (Right is the Fourth R). Either way that would have been a great day to have a sub.

Haven't seen this one so I can't compare Joe to Adam. I surely would love to have Adam as a teacher.

My favorite part is when Joe is reading Chicken Little to the class and catches Candy outside listening. Candy can't help teasing with "The sky is falling! The sky is falling! I must run and tell the king!" :ha

I saw this recently and really liked it. I liked the lady teacher, thought the relationship and dialogue was really well done. Got a bit too syrupy at the end for me, but, otherwise, a great ep. Loved Candy's ribbing of Joe in this ep, really sweet. Poor Joe. :thumbup
