Weekend OTR: Mr. and Mrs. Blandings — Lilly la Marre

By: 29 April 2011 One Comment

No, your eyes don’t deceive you — that’s Cary Grant in the photo.

Grant had an old time radio show — Mr. and Mrs. Blandings — that inspired by the success of his 1948 film, Mr. Blandings Builds his Dream House. Grant starred in the radio program with his co-star from the film, Betsy Drake. Here’s a bit of trivia — Grant and Drake were married at the time (they separated in 1958 and divorced in 1962).

At any rate, the old time radio show starring the couple if one of those charming domestic comedies that was popular back then. It’s just the kind of lighthearted fun that’ll get that weekend started, folks.

As usual, this episode was provided by our friends at When’s the last time you visited The Cat? Well, neighbor — that’s too long!

Click the below player and enjoy the show.
