starring Olsen and Johnson Martha Raye with Hugh Herbert , Mischa Auer Jane Frazee , Robert Paige
This classic crazy comedy, voted among the top 20 ' funniest films ever made,' features Olsen and Johnson as two well-meaning stagehands who try to help a young playwright with his romance and only succeed in wrecking the production of his'show.
The zany pair leave havoc in their wake, ably assisted by Martha Raye as an overgrown child vaudeville star.

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 information about 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 use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of 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.
