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).

In this early 1950's sitcom, the bright and vivacious Ann Sothern played Susie McNamara, devoted secretary to handsome talent agent Peter Sands(Don Porter) who had a talent for getting into zany scrapes. Sus
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.
