The Great Gildersleeve
Volume 25
Much of the charm of The Great Gildersleeve came from the supporting cast and townsfolk of Summerfield as it did from Gildy. Leroy and Marjorie, Gildersleeve’s charges, and Birdie Lee added a particular spark to the comedic family antics of the show. Summerfield itself boasted a few citizens that also made their mark. From Bronco Thompson, the man Marjorie would eventually marry to Forrest Peavey, the twangy pharmacist to Leila Ransom, the widow with her sets sight on Gildy, these and more characters helped elevate The Great Gildersleeve from being just another comedy show to one that struck a funny and often loving chord with its audience.
A few actors from the show went on to rather promising careers from the program. Gale Gordon, known mostly today for his role on I Love Lucy played Gildy’s wealthy, pompous neighbor, Rumson Bullard. Jim Backus also portrayed Bullard beginning around 1952, possibly as training for playing another millionaire he’d make famous on Gilligan’s Island. Richard Crenna, who portrayed Marjorie’s eventual husband Bronco Thompson, went on to have a long and successful movie and television career.
Summerfield typified small town America. Most of the episodes took place within eight blocks around the Gildersleeve home. There was a park nearby. Mr. Peavey’s drugstore cornered on the street that Gildy lived on, Judge Hooker living just across the street from the pharmacy. Down the avenue was Floyd’s Barber Shop, which would become home to the unofficial fraternal order Gildy would join, the Jolly Boys. A water reservoir also was oddly placed in this eight block area, but would prove to provide Gildy with something he needed, a job as water commissioner.
Visit Summerfield and laugh with and at The Great Gildersleeve in the twelve original broadcasts of The Great Gildersleeve, Volume 25, complete with Kraft Foods commercials and restored to sparkling digital quality.
