This would last for a year, and keep Susan in money as she pursued experience in New York's theatreland.

Now she was really busy, and much of her work would come to the public's attention in 1974 when, along with several movies, some of the plays she'd performed in were filmed and shown on TV. Scott Fitzgerald And The Last Of The Belles, timed to ride the wave of Robert Redford's The Great Gatsby.

Like most movies of the type, it ended in violence. In 1969, Chris had been hired to play dark, handsome charmer Dr Tom Halverson in the long-running soap A Guiding Light, a role he'd keep for four years.

1970 would see Susan briefly join him in soap, when she became Patrice Kahlman in A World Apart.

Here Sophia Loren would travel to America to meet her Italian fiance, only to be stopped at customs due to a big sausage she's carrying.

Refusing to compromise, she's held by the authorities, becoming a media personality through the efforts of reporter William Devane.

A call went out for the kind of young people who'd made trouble for the Democrats and Chris and Susan attended the auditions. But she was a bona fide demonstrator and director John G Avildsen (later to hit big with Rocky and The Karate Kid) picked her out of the patchouli-scented throng.

The result was 1970's Joe, a complex examination of contemporary morality that won an Oscar nomination for its screenplay.

Her own personal fame was clearly not the main spur for her - she wanted far more, and got it.
