Our Miss Brooks was a big radio hit from the get go. Eve Arden may not have been the original first choice but she made the role her own and gathered individual awards by the armful.
All the way up until its debut in 1949 women had been, as in much of life, the subordinate gender, supporters and flag-wavers rather than equals or the stars.
Our Miss Brooks helped change that. Here was a woman, not confined to life as a housewife. She was confident, funny and layered with sometimes conflicting emotions, trying to gain a boyfriend of her choosing and holding down a job as a high-school teacher. It was quite a menu.
Jeff Chandler played her shy biology teacher love interest, Mr Boynton. And the dynamics and laughs between themselves, the students, their colleagues, and principal, all played by a very fine cast, make this situation comedy one of radios funniest and finest.
