My Husband has a sick addiction to "My Little Margie". He has made me buy
him the two box sets of the show AND made me watch them too. When he
mentioned that Gale Storm had a second show called "Oh Susannah!", I
not more crap. It was his birthday so I ordered him the only two available
videos of the show(also titled "The Gale Storm Show").
We got them in the mail and I was pleasantly surprised. It has a cute storyline. Susannah Pomeroy(Ms Storm) is a cruise director on a ship that travels around the world. Stopping at many different ports means many new adventures and interesting characters every show. Of course there are some funny characters aboard including silent film star Zazu Pitts as Nugie, Susannah's close friend.
Unlike "My Little Margie", this show included song and dance numbers to take advantage Ms Storm's hit recording career. She's pretty good too. If you ever get the chance to see this show, watch it and enjoy what television had to offer in it's Golden Age.
Gale Storm is well-known for her "My Little Margie" series, but she even topped that with her performances in "The Gale Storm Show (Oh Susanna)." "The Gale Storm Show" featured her beautiful singing voice in many of the episodes, and her suppor ting cast was fantastic!
I watched this show in the late 50's when I was starting school. In
first grade I developed a love for all of the characters. My favorite
show of all time is now My Little Margie, but Gale Storm Show is a
close second. The people, the classy acts and Gale's wonderful singing
voice really made it superior.
In recent years, in 2005, I discovered Gale was going to be at a movie seminar that featured 50's and 60's greats. My husband brought me and after nearly 50 years, I finally met my idol! Jane Russell, Ed Byrnes, Noel Niell and Kathy Garver were some of the other greats, but Gale was the one I wanted to meet especially. I had been so inspired by her great personality and timeless quality. What a marvelous experience! After that, I joined the Gale Storm Appreciation Society and discovered there were many people who still felt the same.
Gale called me and I spoke to her often on the phone. We became great friends and she sent me a copy of her beautiful music CD on my birthday! What a wonderful and generous lady! When I was ill and having health problems in 2007 she was so kind and sympathetic. I was invited to the 50th anniversary of Oh, Susannah, a party that was to be held at Gale's home. Sadly, she was not well, and the party was cancelled.
WE lost her in 2009, and I will never forget how wonderful it was to meet her, and also the other wonderful TV shows of the 50's and 60's. It was a great time to grow up in.
Today I watch the show often. A very generous person, the fan club vice president, made me a copy of the episodes I was missing of the programs. What a treat! So today it is like the time never passed. My big sister and I always find time to watch Oh, Susannah or My Little Margie. Even my sons and daughter enjoy Margie once in awhile.
