The Phil Harris-Alice Faye Show was one of radio’s brightest lights; a hilarious situation comedy featuring a friendly sardonic and sarcastic edge that set it apart from its contemporaries. Featuring Phil Harris, fresh off plying his comedic and musical talents on The Jack Benny Program, and his movie-star wife, Alice Faye. The show also starred Elliott Lewis as the remarkable Frankie Remley - one of radio’s most unforgettable characters - a humorously irresponsible con-artist with an endless thirst for the good stuff.
Willard Waterman stars as radio's romantic water commissioner in 16 laugh-filled episodes of The Great Gildersleeve! Walter Tetley co-stars as nephew Leroy, with Mary Lee Robb as niece Marjorie, and Lillian Randolph as housekeeper Birdie Lee Coggins. Gildy goes toe-to-toe with the likes of crotchety Judge Horace Hooker (Earle Ross), sardonic barber Floyd Munson (Arthur Q. Bryan), Summerfield druggist J.W. Peavey (Richard LeGrand), and Marjorie's husband Bronco (Richard Crenna).
Hollywood glamour meets handsome goofball. Jack Benny's irrepressible bandleader and his winsome wife star in this classic sitcom - raising their two daughters, and raising their voices…and, not just to sing. With a wise-guy sensibility that sounds positively contemporary, the chemistry between Phil Harris and Elliott Lewis (as Frankie Remley) is pitch-perfect. They click in a comic rhythm reminiscent of Jackie Gleason and Art Carney. Add Walter Tetley to the mix (as smart-alecky grocery boy Julius Abbruzio), and the results are glorious.
