It's a must see - the life story of 'Days of Our Lives' actor Bill Hayes [Doug Williams] in documentary form. Titled "World By the Tail" and done by Dave Samuel and Lee Levin, it tells the life story of Hayes who has been a part of the NBC daytime drama since 1970. It is narrated by Hayes himself and features several of his co-stars through the years. Fan favorites; Deidre Hall [Marlena], Drake Hogestyn [John], James Reynolds [Abe] and his real-life wife Susan Seaforth-Hayes [Julie] all make appearances in the documentary. Also making appearances are; Shirley Maclaine, Carl Reiner, Florence Henderson and Mel Brooks.
It is quite interesting to learn that what was suppose to be just a single scene with Susan Seaforth at the time, turned out into a long lasting career opportunity. The pairing of Doug and Julie still remains popular amongst 'Days' viewers. Reflecting on the storyline, Hayes shares, "The scripts go so exciting that I couldn't wait to open the next script to see what happened."
