3rd of the 4 films based on the popular radio show, The Great Gildersleeve.
19 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

Gildersleeve on Broadway is the third of the four films based on the popular radio series, The Great Gildersleeve, which ran on the radio from 1942 until 1956. Walter Tetley, the voice of Leroy on the radio series, appears in this film in the role of the butler who shows Gildersleeve how to woo a woman. Walter was too old to play Leroy on screen and this is his only appearance in the four movies, so make sure you watch for him if you are a fan of the radio series.
