Product Overview

Ann Sothern is Susie, private secretary to talent agent Peter Sands (Don Porter), in this delightful series of comic adventures that ran on TV Sunday nights from 1953 to 1957. Susie, with long-suffering receptionist Vi Praskins (Ann Tyrrell), keeps the office of International Artists humming in the world of insecure actors, snobby writers and big-shot producers, while continuing to prove that the employees are often smarter than their employer! Private Secretary (AKA Susie) was nominated for five Emmy Awards and continues to enchant all who come under Susie's lively secretarial spell.What Every Secretary Knows: Peter desperately wants to make a deal for two of his rising singing stars with an opera impresario. Susie and the maestro's wife plot to get the two bigheaded big shots together. How To Handle a Boss: Susie busts her writer's block when she asks a reporter friend to ghost write an article for her in a magazine. The result lands her in hot water with everybody in the office! Not Quite Paradise: Vi's Aunt Martha gets the crazy idea that her niece and Peter are engaged to be married - and that Susie is the competition that must be eliminated! Three's A Crowd: Susie finds herself in the role of leading lady in a love triangle with a new, eager-to-please playwright and a slick Broadway producer.Starring: Ann Sothern, Don Porter Ann TyrrellProduced by: Jack ChertokDirected by: Oscar Rudolph DVD Details: Run Time: 104 minutesNumber of Discs: 1Originally Released in 1953Black WhiteNo region encoding; For global distribution.
