An anthology series about the happenings and experiences of midshipmen attending the US Naval Academy. Sometimes humorous as in kidnapping school mascots but more often the difficulties facing future officers.
Mason Alan Dinehart,
The 39 half-hour episodes of the situation comedy "Meet Corliss Archer" were local broadcast syndication programming in 1954-55. Each DVD set contains four of the episodes.
This was the second television adaptation of a 1943-1955 radio series of the same title that was based on F. Hugh Herbert's play "Kiss and Tell". The first adaptation ran as a live broadcast in 1951.
The title character (played by Ann Baker) was an early Gidget who is experiencing her teenage years in the days before sex, drugs, and rock & roll. Bobby Ellis plays boyfriend Dexter Franklin and is the only cast member retained from the earlier production. The writing is better than you would expect and Ann Baker has a lot of effortless charm.
The series is a narrated by Hy Averback who would go on to produce "F-Troop". What is notable is that the narration is often in the form of a voice-over commentary for a cartoon version of a character, and the situation they are experiencing in the story; 50 years later this technique would become a staple of Disney's "Lizzie McGuire" (2001) series.
Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child.
