Description by

The Life of Riley: William Bendix delighted radio and TV audiences with his lovable but thickheaded Chester A. Riley, an aircraft riveter frequently outsmarted by his wife Peggy (Marjorie Reynolds) and their children, Babs and Junior (Lugene Saunders and Wesley Morgan). This uproarious 1953-57 series from Desilu ("I Love Lucy") is a must for any fan of vintage '50s situation comedy. This DVD includes two episodes - "Bab's School Reunion" and "Riley's Operation." Episodes originally aired 1953-1957.

Our Miss Brooks: Eve Arden scores straight A's as the acid-tongued high school English teacher who continually clashes with her long-suffering principal (Gale Gordon) while carrying a torch for the biology instructor. Miss Connie Brooks and her comic antics kept TV audiences in stitches from 1952 until 1957 after a successful radio run that had started in 1948. This DVD includes two episodes - "The Jump" and "Home Cooked Meal." Episodes originally aired 1952-1957.

But I didn't get it!!!! Where is my merchandise should be the title of this review, which is why it took me so long to order stuff from you people again as the same thing happened the last time I tried to order stuff!!! It would be nice if you would indicate in your catalog that the product is not available.
