Beulah
21 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a baby boomer and have very fond memories of the Golden Age of Television. As a child growing up during that time, one of my favorite shows as "Beulah." It was originally aired on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 with Ethel Waters then Louise Beavers (with a different cast) as the star. The 6 or 7 TV episodes Hattie McDaniel filmed were never aired until the show went into syndication (approximately 1955). It aired locally in Cleveland, Ohio on a Monday-Friday basis from 1955-1962. Pretty long time for a syndicated show. It was extremely popular and well-liked locally by kids and their families. I am pleased to say I have audio copies of all the shows, video copies of about 9 of the shows (2 with McDaniel, 2 with Beavers, 3 with Waters). I also have 15-20 copies of the original radio show with Marlin Hurt, Hattie McDaniel and McDaniel's replacement (upon her death) Amanda Randolph (played "Mama" in "Amos-n-Andy"). I love this show!!!
