The sound on the second part of this DVD (Our Miss Brooks) is hardly audible and should never have been released in that condition. Turning the volume up as loud as possible the audio on the DVD can still hardly be heard. There are only 4 episodes on this DVD not really making it worth the price of the item. Very disappointing. I am disappointed also in that this item would be sold by anyone being so poorly reproduced.

Terrible video quality. These videos could have been enhanced like the I Love Lucy series. They should be ashamed to sell this product with this type of quality.

Episodes from two fondly-remembered sitcoms of the 1950's, THE LIFE OF RILEY and OUR MISS BROOKS. Presumably these are the only public domain episodes from either show that were obtainable by Alpha Video; one wishes that there were more volumes of OUR MISS BROOKS especially, but collectors of classic TV series will appreciate them all the same.

THE LIFE OF RILEY:
William Bendix is the affable star of this charming domestic comedy that ran on NBC between 1953-58; in which he plays aircraft riveter Chester A. Riley. Chester isn't the usual "Fifties sitcom dad" with a crisp business suit and briefcase. Instead, you'll normally find him in his work overalls and a crumpled hat. Former B-movie leading lady Marjorie Reynolds is his wife Peggy; with Lugene Sanders playing teen daughter Babs, and Wesley Morgan as young son Junior.

Episodes:

"Babs' School Election" - Chester tries to help Babs to win her campaign to become Class President by "rigging" the vote, but instead causes a huge rift between the two. This was the official first episode; Alpha has incorrectly-labeled it as "Babs' School Reunion".

"Riley's Operation" - A routine tonsillectomy is completely blown out of proportion by Riley, who has a pathelogical fear of hospitals.

OUR MISS BROOKS:
The role of schoolteacher Connie Brooks was one which Eve Arden had the unique honour of playing in three different mediums - radio, film and television. The TV series of OUR MISS BROOKS was a natural extension from the long-running radio serial, featuring Arden as the wisecracking Miss Brooks; it ran for four seasons on CBS, ending in 1956, at which point Arden starred in a movie version before finally putting the character to rest.

My Mom used to always watch both of these shows, so I have sweet memories of not only the TV shows, but of time spent with my Mom. The quality of the film is somewhat degraded, but you are still able to enjoy the shows. I just wish there were more episodes available. I would buy them.

this dvd is great; i grew up watching this and it's as enjoyable as it was then.
the seller was dependable, delivered quickly, and the dvd was in great shape and very audible.
would recommend this seller to others; this is a great comedy; Bentley is a lovable character.
Eve Arden is similar to some of the Lucy skits.
Laughter is great medicine especially when it's clean and wholesome for the younger generation.

These are classics no doubt. Can barely remember some of the episodes and I will probably purchase more of these series. Innocent, funny, simple, corney, but that's how life was in that era growing up. . . innocent
