Product Description & Reviews
Jack Benny Show, Volume 1 (ALP 4252D): America's funniest, always-beleaguered cheapskate in four side-splitting episodes featuring musical performances, celebrity guests and regulars Mary Livingston, Eddie "Rochester" Anderson and Don Wilson. Topper, Volume 1 (ALP 4260D): The well-loved Thorne Smith characters of the Topper movies came to life on the small screen from 1953-56. Ghosts George and Marion Kirby return to their home after dying in a skiing accident to discover the house is now occupied by uptight banker Cosmo Topper and his wife. Visible only to Cosmo, the Kirbys cause unending trouble in their attempts to teach him to enjoy life. Several episodes contain the original commercials. You Bet Your Life, Volume 1 (ALP 4335D): Groucho Marx matches wits with the American public in four episodes of this classic game show. Starting on the radio in 1947, "You Bet Your Life" made its television debut in 1950 and aired for 11 years with Groucho as host and emcee. Teams of two contestants worked to answer questions for cash prizes. The quiz show aspect was always secondary to the clever back-and-forth between host and contestants, which found Groucho at his funniest and made this one of early television's greatest programs. Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet, Volume 1 (ALP 4422D): Four hilarious episodes about "America's Favorite Family" the Nelsons, with gentle humor and wacky situations centering around their home, their neighborhood and favorite malt shop. George Burns & Gracie Allen Show, Volume 1 (ALP 4731D): A vaudeville team since 1922, real-life married couple George Burns and Gracie Allen made audiences laugh in theaters, radio, movies and television. For nine years on CBS, often entangled with their neighbors the Mortons, Gracie's zany wit was always the cause of (and solution to) their domestic misadventures. Private Secretary, Volume 1 (ALP 4755D): Ann Sothern is Susie, private secretary to talent agent Peter Sands (Don Porter), in this delightful series that ran on Sunday nights from 1953-57. Susie, with long-suffering receptionist Vi Praskins (Ann Tyrrell), keeps the office of International Artists humming in the world of insecure actors, snobby writers and big-shot producers, while continuing to prove that the employees are often smarter than their employer! Nominated for five Emmy Awards, the series continues to enchant all who come under Susie's lively secretarial spell. My Hero, Volume 1 (ALP 4784D): Women find handsome, carefree Robert S. Beanblossom (Bob Cummings) irresistible. Perhaps that is why the clueless real estate salesman is a hero in the eyes of secretary Julie Marshall (Julie Bishop). Boss Willis Thackery (John Litel) sees things differently and tries to reign in Beanblossom's bumbling antics. I Married Joan, Volume 1 (ALP 4894D): Life is a piece of wedding cake for kindly Judge Bradley Stevens (Jim Backus) and his scatterbrained wife Joan. Joan Davis and her wonderful brand of physical, knock-about comedy appeared on NBC from 1952 to 1953. Life of Riley / Our Miss Brooks (ALP 5296D): The Life of Riley: Two episodes featuring loveable but thickheaded Chester A. Riley (William Bendix), an aircraft riveter frequently outsmarted by his wife Peggy (Marjorie Reynolds) and their children, Babs and Junior. Our Miss Brooks: Two episodes with Eve Arden as the acid-tongued high school English teacher who clashes with long-suffering principal (Gale Gordon) while carrying a torch for the biology instructor. The Trouble with Father, Volume 1 (ALP 4782D):Trouble comes in all shapes and sizes in this hilarious sitcom starring real-life husband and wife Stu and June Erwin, who (with two daughters and handyman Willie) find the little things in life going from bad to worse.
