Great Gildersleeves – Leila Is Back In Town. 481110 In previous episodes, Gildy and Adeline have gotten engaged. Last week, at the climax of the engagement party festivities, a cab pulls up, and Leila gets out.
Today Gildy mourns over his engagement, even though it is for a good cause, namely in being able to adopt the mystery baby who showed up at the beginning of the season. Leila is Gildy’s old flame who he was nce engaged to and nearly married. She sure has a knack of returning to the picture just when Gildy is getting serious over someone.
Is there still something between them? Gildersleeves goes to the office and tries to get back into a normal routine. Throwing himself into his work might be just the thing to help forget Leila, except that everybody keeps mentioning her. Then he manages to get a secret lunch date with Leila. Are old flames rekindling? Gildersleeves sings to her, Tender Words of Love.
It’s the last week of the sponsor give away, enter the Name the Baby Contest for the big prizes of cash, appliances, and cars. All you need to do is build a time machine and travel back to 1948, and clean up big.
Gildy is in a bind. He’s now engaged to two women. Maybe his friend Peavey will have the advice he needs, but I wouldn’t say that. A visit to Floyd the barber doesn’t make things much better, although he offers a word of advice that might be more practical than anything else yet.
Gildersleeves faces up to his two women. Will the fur start to fly in a huge cat fight? Will Gildy still end up being engaged? Will he still end up being alive?
