The Great Gildersleeve Movie Collection 04/14/20

The Warner Archive Collection

Reviewer Charlie Largent harks back to the days when radio actors could graduate to movie fame. Actor Harold Peary of Fibber McGee and Molly starred in four features framed around his ‘Gildersleeve’ character, a guy described as a ‘befuddled blowhard.’ The shows The Great Gildersleeve, Gildersleeve’s Bad Day, Gildersleeve on Broadway, and Gildersleeve’s Ghost are accompanied by Peary’s guest-shot contribution to the Victor Mature/Lucille Ball comedy Seven Days’ Leave. On DVD from The Warner Archive Collection.
