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.

Episodes included are: “Old Clothing,” “Poor Heat,” “Student Government Day,” “Head of the English Department,” “The Frog,” “Stretch Has a Crush,” “Faculty Dance, New Hairdo,” “Cafeteria Boycott,” “Clay City High Wants Brooks,” “April Fool’s Party,” “Wake Up Plan,” and “Working for Easter Outfit.”

About the Narrators

Eve Arden (1908–1990) was an American actress whose career of nearly sixty years covered stage, radio, film, and television. She had roles on stage in New York in the 1930s and 1940s when a minor role in a comedy sketch attracted notice. She went on to radio, television, and film, playing supporting and leading roles, but she may be best remembered for her role as the sardonic but engaging high school teacher Connie Brooks in Our Miss Brooks. She was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1995.

Gale Gordon (1906–1995) was an American actor of stage, radio, television, and film who was known for playing stuffy characters, from military officers to high school principals. He got his first role in radio on the popular Fibber McGee and Molly show. He appeared The Honeymooners, Our Miss Brooks, the various Lucille Ball sitcoms, and numerous other films and television series. He was at his best when he delivered the “slow burn” take. He was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1999.
