Family life in wartime America could be fun…if you had a sense of humor! Here's William Bendix as the clamorous-yet-caring father and "revoltin'" riveter Chester A. Riley, who always seemed to end up on the silly side of things!
Through 16 digitally restored and remastered episodes from 1944, Riley cozies up to the boss, competes with the neighbors, and causes all manner of comic calamity. Paula Winslow, Conrad Binyon, Sharon Douglas, and John Brown co-star, as the Riley family soldiers on through vacation troubles, miscommunications, and screwy celebrations.
Includes a Program Guide by Daniel Riedstra.
