Eve Arden stars as Connie Brooks, the teacher with plenty of class, in sixteen hilarious and heartwarming episodes. Gale Gordon, the master of radio's most impressive slow-burn, is her fastidious foil, Principal Osgood Conklin.
While haunting the Madison High hallways in search of one Philip Boynton - a tongue-tied biology teacher who seems more interested in the doings of his pet frog than in amorous advances - Miss Brooks meets with conniving co-workers, addled athletes, wide-eyed girls, and the feckless flatterer Walter Denton.
Jeff Chandler, Richard Crenna, Robert Rockwell, Jane Morgan, and more fill out the rolls…er, roles…in this crisp and clever comedy.
Includes an informative booklet and program guide by radio historian Elizabeth McLeod!

Eve Arden is a great comedian in movies, on TV and radio. I have enjoyed everything that she has done. Also doing this review while watching the Dawgs play TCU and the time is about to run out.
