Storyline

Rob is asked to write an amusing bulletin for the PTA bazaar. Richie is having a difficult time explaining to his friends just what his father does at work and he's taking out his frustration on his father. Laura thinks it would be a good idea for Rob to take Richie with him to the office for a day so he can see first hand what his dad does. Rob is skeptical this will work but agrees to give her plan a try. Written by tomtrekp

Not Correct! "Head of the Family" was filmed in New York at the Bronx Gold Medal Studio (at the site of what had been the old Biograph Studios.) In 1959 as I recall. I worked on the show and even have a credit as sound editor.
