Arthur B. Woods,
When a cute Welsh terrier follows Bill Denny home, little does he know that all gangland has its eye on that dog. Who will be bumbling Bill's undoing - the gangsters, the cops, or his suspicious mother-in-law?
This is a real antique, but the casting was so good that two of the supporting characters were still working just a few years ago. Marvin Kaplan, who is still turning up in guest shots, and Florence Halop, who was one of the bailiffs on Night Court. Elena Verdugo is a lovely lady who also had a part in Robert Young's Doctor show, as his nurse. This show was pretty basic, the usual boy-girl type thing, but the comic abilities of Millie' mother, Florence Halop, and the neighbor boy, Marvin Kaplan, kept it pretty lively. I don't really know what the title had to do with it. This type of comedy is still with us; just maybe not as good as they were. Or maybe we are just more sophisticated.
