  1. Great Gildersleeves – Auto Accident with Judge Hooker. ep77, 430411

Viewed by 121. The always bickering Gildersleeves, and Judge Hooker have more to fight about after they have a fender bender. Marjorie tries to get them from being hurt little boys, as insurance claims and injury settlements make the jokes fly.

 

Comedy seems king with Jack Benny, and Fibber McGee and Molly. Westerns are hanging in there, and suspenseful dramas, but where are the detectives? The countdown continues, and there are some surprising turns in the top picks of the year. At least it’s surprising to me.
