Willie Best on The Trouble With Father

The Trouble With Father was a television program that ran in the early 1950s. It was pretty typical of family comedy shows of the period: feel-good episodes with gentle humor. However, the developers of this particular program had a stroke of genius when they made the great Willie Best as a regular on the show as the Stu Erwin family's handy man. Best was one of the finest funny-men of all time, in my humble opinion, and he did it seemingly effortlessly.
