Willard Waterman starred as the beloved Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve in the 1955 NBC television program The Great Gildersleeve, based on the long-running radio series. The jolly, pompous, larger-than-life windbag, moved to the town of Summerfield to oversee his deceased brother-in-law's estate and care for his orphaned niece and nephew - making Gildersleeve one of the first single-parent characters to headline a prime-time program on U.S. television. This DVD contains four episodes of the series:
Practice What You Preach: Throckmorton advises his nephew on how to handle his love life.
Gildy Goes Diving: Gildersleeve attempts a dangerous underwater dive in a foolhardy attempt to attract publicity.
Gildy Stews About A Cook: Gildy is wiling to go to great lengths to terminate the services of his housekeeper - even marriage.
One Too Many Secretaries: Mayhem ensues when Gildy's girlfriend replaces his secretary.
