In what seems to be a misdated show… It’s Maxwell House Coffee Time! Well I Swan, but this may have been a reworked script, performed in the 1942, and other seasons!
Gracie tries to be more efficient, inspired by support for the war. She shows off her new filing system for tracking household receipts. George tries his hand at shopping. Is it so easy to buy meat, butter, and vegetables?
Later, George and Gracie enjoy a movie. It reminds her of her family, but her family tales can’t get George’s mind off the high cost of living.
Meredeth Willson tells about his own experience in the theater. A Texan in the neighborhood, Mr Judson, may be interested in backing the play Gracie wants to put on for George. He mainly does it because he thinks George is in a memntal institution.
Meredeth Willson plays some transition music, and we find George excited about putting on a musical play. Will it change things for Judson about being in a mental institution when he talks to George in person? Truth comes out, but will George be able to bring himself to punish Gracie?
Note: Frank Nelson is the grocery clerk. Mr Judson is played by Gale Gordon.
