Harold Peary brought his hit radio series characterization as pompous functionary Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve to the big screen in these popular RKO comedies. Peary (as Gildersleeve), and many other broadcast luminaries, provided support in "Seven Days' Leave" (1942), the timeframe given for soldier Victor Mature to meet and woo socialite Lucille Ball in order to receive an ancestor's bequest. Gildy took center stage for "The Great Gildersleeve" (1942), as his strained relations with Judge Hooker (Charles Arnt) go from bad to worse when the judge's sister (Mary Field) thinks he's proposing marriage. Jane Darwell, Lillian Randolph co-star. "Gildersleeve's Bad Day" (1943) begins with his reporting for jury duty, and then being suspected of taking a bribe. Darwell, Randolph co-star. Gildy heads to New York to talk pharmaceutical heiress Billie Burke out of closing up shop in "Gildersleeve on Broadway" (1943). Ann Doran co-stars. Last, the spirits of two of Gildy's ancestors (also played by Peary) decide to aid his run for office in "Gildersleeve's Ghost" (1944). 5 1/2 hrs. total on two discs. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
