George Baxter was a highly successful corporation lawyer who was always in control of everything at the office, but almost nothing at home. When he returned from the office at day's end, to his wife Dorothy, and his young son Harold, he entered the world of Hazel. Hazel was the maid and housekeeper who ran the Baxter household more efficiently than George ran his office. She was always right, knew exactly what needed doing, and pre-empted his authority with alarming, though, justified regularity. Written by
During its first four seasons the series was sponsored by the Ford Motor Company, who apparently used their clout to put their cars on the show. The Baxters' family cars were always Fords. In the Spring of 1964, the show became one of the first to show its characters riding in a Ford Mustang, which had just been introduced to the market. See more »
Hazel- When Maids Brought Love, Warmth and Comedy to the House ****
Oscar winner Shirley Booth surprised friends when she signed on to do the television series of "Hazel." Many thought that the role was beneath the star of "Come Back, Little Sheba." Remember, her blowzy wife had brought her the Oscar in 1952 as best actress.
At times, Hazel could be confused but the love that she shared for the people that she worked for was memorable. Remember how she was always watching the weight of her employer, played by Don De Fore. Whitney Blake had just what it took to be the wife of DeFore. Bobby Buntrock was adorable as their son. Too bad that he was killed tragically at such a young age.
Remember DeFore's boss? He could be a crusty old codger, but eventually he would come around due to Hazel Burke. She often reminded him of his mother.
Remember that snotty sister of DeFore? She was always planning the social event of the season.
A great show highlighting wonderful interpersonal relationships.
