THE GREAT GILDERSLEEVE - VOL. 1 - OLD TIME RADIO

The Great Gildersleeve Radio Classics: Harold Peary had played several character roles on “Fibber McGee and Molly,” including various pompous characters with the last name Gildersleeve. Eventually, he was given a recurring role as the McGees’ next door neighbor, Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve. Vain, egotistical, bombastic, Gildersleeve was noted for his deep voice and trilling pronouncement, “You’re a ha-a-a-ard man, McGee!” In 1941, the new show debuted, with Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve moving from Wistful Vista to Summerfield, to assume guardianship of his orphaned niece and nephew, Marjorie and Leroy Forrester. In his new life, the Great Gildersleeve has his hands full with the pretty and popular young Marjorie, initially played by Lurene Tuttle, and her kid brother Leroy, played by Walter Tetley. Birdy Lee Coggins, played by Lillian Randolph, is the family’s cook and housekeeper. Cantankerous Judge Horace Hooker, played by Earle Ross, oversees Gildersleeve’s administration of Marjorie and Leroy’s affairs, and the two become good friends, despite frequent arguments.
