Our Miss Brooks was a situation comedy show heard on radio and seen on television and films starring Oscar winner Eve Arden. Her skill with the wicked one-liner and acid aside had begun to lead to typecasting so, to find a new image, Arden signed on for the lead in radio’s Our Miss Brooks. The series centered on Connie Brooks, a smart, sharp-witted, lovable English teacher at fictional Madison High School. Between gentle wisecracks, Miss Brooks doted on nerdish student Walter Denton and frequently locked horns with crusty, cranky Principal Osgood Conklin. Many plot lines revolved around Miss Brooks’ longing for Philip Boynton, the school’s bashful biology teacher. Our Miss Brooks made a successful jump to TV in 1952 while the radio series lasted until 1957.
