Our Miss Brooks

Unread post by mwalls » Sun Mar 27, 2016 4:52 pm

I am quite a fan of the OTR show Our Miss Brooks. Very cleverly written and excellent character portrayals. I even a few months ago had the privilege of speaking with the woman who played Harriett Conklyn on the series and getting her autograph.

The largest repository of episodes I can find is Archive.org. Archive.org has 190 episodes; most of them complete. I came across a website recently that showed that there could have been a possibility of somewhere around 330 episodes made.

Some members of this site are extremely adept in terms of resources for film information. Is there a site(s) that I could visit which would tell me how many Our Miss Brooks radio episodes were made, descriptions, lost/existing notation, etc.?

Thanks,
Matthew

Matthew - You might try your query at this Group: http://www.ricksplace.info" target="_blank

Matthew, here are two solid sites for information about whether certain episodes are in existence, and then whether they are in circulation:

http://www.otrsite.com/radiolog/" target="_blank

http://www.radiogoldindex.com/" target="_blank

Best,

I second ricksplace.info. Lots of radio historians on there. Recent talk about Our Miss Brooks last month was that the episodes have official script titles but that even commercial releases of the series features made-up titles. Copyright registrations and program information was also provided including total number of episodes. Archive.org has been under fire from copyright holders for the illegal downloading and uploading so be cautious when visiting that site.
