|Betty White: the comeback queen of comedy|
|Life With Elizabeth ran from 1953-55.|
This rare vintage television series can be difficult to find but I found an uploaded video of this Christmas segment on Youtube:
I love Elizabeth and Alvin's gestures surrounding their pact to not peek! Alvin is played by comedic actor Del Moore--do you recognize him? Among his many roles, I recognize him as the college dean in Jerry Lewis' movie The Nutty Professor. I wish there was a good clip of it on Youtube. Dr. Warfield (Moore) is tricked by Buddy Love into acting out a dramatic scene from Hamlet on top of a table. It's a classic.
Watching these old television shows is one of my great passions in being a researcher/writer about Christmas TV. I get a real thrill out of discovering and watching TV shows I've never seen before. Have you heard of Life With Elizabeth? What's the oldest TV show you still enjoy watching?
