Friday's Favorite OTR

Our Miss Brooks: “Heat Wave” 8/7/49

It’s too hot to teach or study, but ill-tempered principal Mr. Conklin refuses to close the school for the day. Miss Brooks soon finds herself caught up in a plot to sabotage Conklin’s electric fan to force him to change his mind.

As in the Fibber McGee and Molly episode I reviewed not long ago, this is yet another example of just how extraordinarily funny actor Gale Gordon was. He was Conklin in this series and a sequence in which he keeps discovering people hiding in his closet will put you on the floor laughing.
