Trivia

Originally conceived as a vehicle for Vivian Vance, who shot a pilot for the show in 1958 for CBS. When CBS passed Desi Arnaz retooled the show and cast Joanne Dru in the role of Babs Hooten after Dru's 1957 pilot for a Desilu show called Adventures of a Model failed to be picked up as a series.

Another Dennis sitcom
9 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

"The Pruitts of Southampton" is based on a Patrick Dennis novel as well. It aired later in the 60's on ABC and starred Gypsy Rose Lee and Phyllis Diller. However, it wasn't based on a book of the same title but rather one titled "House Party". Both of these shows had the concept of characters which were "larger than life", like the sisters played by the actresses above, and like the Indian "Hawkeye" in Guestward, Ho! who sold "Indian" trinkets which were really made in Japan. These characters are somewhat like Dennis' most well-known character, Auntie Mame, who was even more outrageous because she had a full-length show to fill with herself (acutally, two, as Dennis also wrote a sequel) rather than just a half-hour (22 minute) sitcom.
