Our Miss Brooks “School Spirit”

Connie Brooks (Eve Arden) rewrote the textbook on how popular culture looked at teachers -- with a fresh, funny, and always human take on the pedagogic profession. Come and study these sixteen terrific episodes from 1954 - 1956. If you travel with her through the halls, you might encounter adolescent blunderer Walter Denton (Richard Crenna), the principal's bobby-soxer daughter Harriet (Gloria McMillan), or the fumbling frog-obsessed science teacher Philip Boynton (Robert Rockwell). Principal Osgood Conklin (Gale Gordon) was her outstanding comic foil -- capable of both a cool professionalism and outrageous stack-blowing.
