Phil Harris and Alice Faye are back in 20 new digitally remastered episodes - including 18 episodes available for the first time anywhere.
As we join Curly and the Mrs., spring is in the air, but the show is on thin ice with its sponsor RCA Victor and its president Clyde Scott (Gale Gordon). Amid contract worries, battles with writers, family outings, sorority girls, and selling television sets, the show takes a dramatic turn - and chaos and hilarity follow! We also hear "The Life Story of Phil Harris and Alice Faye"!
Special guests in this collection include Norris Goff (reprising his Abner Peabody character from Lum 'n' Abner), and Rose Marie who makes an appearance as Julius' mother! Getting in on the act are regulars Elliott Lewis, Walter Tetely, Robert North, Jeanine Roos, Anne Whitfield, announcer Bill Forman, Martha Wentworth, Sheldon Leonard, Hans Conreid, Joseph Kearns, Gerald Mohr and more.
Includes a Program Guide by Ivan G. Shreve, Jr. with photographs and background information about the programs.
