Created by Irving Brecher, The Life of Riley starred William Bendix as Brooklynborn Chester A. Riley, a family man who worked as a wing riveter at the fictional Cunningham Aircraft plant in California. The stories were usually set at home, where Riley would cheerfully disrupt life with his malapropisms and illtimed intervention into minor problems. His stock answer to every turn of fate became a popular catch phrase: “What a revoltin development this is!” Trouble usually arose when Riley received bad information from his coworker, Jim Gillis.Paula Winslowe played Rileys wife, Peg; John Brown doubled as undertaker “Digger” ODell and Jim Gillis; Tommy Cook, Bobby Ellis, and Scotty Beckett each played the role of Rileys son, Junior; and Sharon Douglas played the Rileys daughter, Babs. Alan Reed, the voice of Fred Flintstone, played multiple characters, including Rileys boss, Mr. Stevenson, as well as Pegs father.The program aired on radio from 1944 until 1951, making a successful transition to television in 1949. Due to a contract dispute, Bendix couldnt initially play Riley on television, so the role went to Jackie Gleason. In 1953 Bendix was free to star as Riley on the small screen and continued with it until 1958.Episodes include:“Cissios Marriage”“Riley the Dogcatcher”“Riley Fixes Dinner for Mothers Day”“Fish Story”“The Boss SoninLaw”“The Halloween Show: Haunted House”“Big Football Bet”“Rileys Mash Note at Night School”“Wedding Anniversary”“Five Dollars Is Missing”“Gambling Does Not Pay”“Riley Thinks Hes Promoted”
