: The Laugh Parade The Model and the Marriage Broker

Tonight's film in this comedy series stars
Thelma Ritter Jeanne Crain. Scott Brady
Mae Swazey operates a Marriage Bureau catering for an endless parade of shy, timid clients in search of partners. With garrulous good humour she earns a modest living by matching chalk and cheese, but when she takes a sympathetic hand in the affairs of an attractive but unhappy model who isn'even a client, the sparks begin to fly.
Thelma Ritter , one of Hollywood's most accomplished character actresses, brings the wry wit of her native Brooklyn to bear on the role of Mrs Swazey whilst Jeanne Crain is the pert and pretty model.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
