Betty's attempt at a sitcom, 2 November 2011
Author: earlytalkie from United States

This program was my first exposure to that powerhouse Betty Hutton. I was all of eight years old when "Goldie", as we called it was on. I had long forgotten this series until it's recent revival by Alpha. Of the four episodes on the DVD I actually remembered two of them. It's clear that the writers were trying for a different premise than the usual family sitcom when they created this. The character of "Goldie" seemed tailor-made for Ms.Hutton's talents: an ex-showgirl with a heart-of-gold who is thrust into being the caretaker for three children. Tom Conway plays Mr. Seaton, a kind-of genteel Mr. Mooney to Betty's frantic antics. From what I can gather, it was the competition ("The Donna Reed Show") that sunk this show after it's 30-episode single season. I recently came across the delightful website, "Satins and Spurs", dedicated to Betty. There are quite a few articles relating to the production and promotion of this show there. "The Betty Hutton Show" survives as a pleasant artifact from the vaults of TV shows that didn't quite make it.
