IDS 464 IDS 2015 Thanksgiving Special Our Miss Brooks

Happy Thanksgiving, IDSers!!  While the Tryptophan from your holiday feast kicks in, please grab a comfy spot on your couch and listen to our Turkey-day special, a Thanksgiving Show from the radio series, Our Miss Brooks!  Enjoy!!

th

From Generic Radio Workshop:

Another instance where a star was indelibly matched to a role, Eve Arden simply was “Our Miss Brooks”, the tart-tounged, long-suffering, ultimately warm-hearted English teacher at Madison High School. On radio from 1948, and then in a television version that ran concurrently until the series close in 1956, “Our Miss Brooks” presented a plausible (if not terribly realistic) humorous slice of life that earned her the admiration of teachers and listeners of all stripes.

The supporting cast was excellent too, from a young Richard Crenna as student Walter Denton, to Jeff Chandler as Connie Brooks’ unrequited love interest Mr. Boynton, to Gale Gordon as the stuffy school principal Chester Conklin.

25 years later, Eve Arden was herself cast as Principal McGee of Rydell High in the movie musical Grease. It seemed like a natural promotion because everybody still knew that she was… “Our Miss Brooks.”
