Riley worked in an aircraft plant in California, but viewers usually saw him at home, cheerfully disrupting life with his malapropisms and ill timed intervention into minor problems. His stock answer to every turn of fate became a catch phrase: 'What a revoltin' development this is!" Written by
I really love the character actor that was William Bendix. I am always hoping that his war movies or the Babe Ruth story would be rerun on a movie channel. When I was a young boy, I watched the Life of Riley every time it was on. I was 6-11 during the time it was on. What saddens me, is that I have NEVER seen any of the shows in reruns. I haven't heard of this show being on at all in reruns. Can anyone tell me a valid reason why a cable channel cant show this great show again? Are the original tapes destroyed like "mr peepers"? It's Christmas eve and "Holiday Inn" is on (with Marjorie Reynolds) and that's why I thought of Life of Riley tonight.
