Under the title "Susie", this was shown again in syndicated reruns in the 1960's, sometimes in rotation with "The Ann Sothern Show" (when the entire series "Susie" ended, episodes of "The Ann Sothern Show" would begin, then after they had ended, "Susie" began again, from its first episode to its last).

This was Miss Sothern's first and most successful attempt at a primetime TV series(the later was THE ANN SOTHERN SHOW). PRIVATE SECRETARY ran on CBS from 1953-57 and was an excellent showcase for Sothern's warm, inviting personality and impeccable comedic talents. Before the highly popular television show, Miss Sothern had been a major musical and comedy star at MGM in the 1940's, and appeared in the classic, award-winning comedy film A LETTER TO THREE WIVES at Twentieth Century Fox in 1949. Miss Sothern would later play the titular role in the interestingly titled 1965-66 series MY MOTHER, THE CAR. The great actress made her last film appearance in 1987 in THE WHALES OF AUGUST, for which she received a much deserved Oscar nomination.
