Likable Show That Was Cancelled Too Soon
28 November 2018 | by logan03See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this show tremendously. I never got to see Gertrude Berg in her earlier classic sitcom (until years later). I was a teen when this show premiered and thought she was delightful in it; had a great supporting cast in Mary Wickes and Cedric Hardwicke. Was disappointed that it wasn't renewed.
