I've been watching Betty White's first sitcom "Life With Elizabeth" and have been enjoying it. It differs from other sitcoms in that each half-hour episode is broken up into three distinct stories. The stories are referred to as "incidents" by Jack Narz, who was the show's announcer. Betty says in her autobiography that this show began as a live production shown locally in the Los Angeles area. It went to film as the series went into national syndication in 1953. The show has the look and sound of having been filmed in front of a studio audience, but, according to Betty, it was filmed like a motion picture in a studio, the finished film then being shown to an audience in a theater to record the laughs and applause. This system seems to have worked fine, as I see no missed timing by the principal players as to the laughs. And I love seeing Betty's little dog in a cameo in the lower screen during the closing credits.
