Here's the pilot episode. Bring back memories?
theatrengym saidYes, for some reason The Ghost and Mrs. Muir and Please Don't Eat the Daisies kind of go together in my mind too. Maybe because they were two of the first TV series (perhaps the very first two) to be spun off from movies (though both movies were based on books, and it's likely that the series credited the books rather than the movies).
Caslon13000 saidI loved Topper...Leo G. Carroll....with George and Marian Kirby as the ghosts. I didnt care for Neil.
rnch saidhope lange was as beautiful in the tv series as jean tierney (sp?) was in the movie.
BiGymGuy saidyep, saw the movie first, then the TV series:
and NEVER, but NEVER missed Topper!
Earlier 1950s US examples of movie-to-TV-series would be Topper (minus Cary Grant, but adding an inebriated St. Bernard for TV), Lassie, Rin Tin Tin (both features and short 1-reeler serials going back to the silent era), I Remember Momma, and I know there were others, were my memory in gear this morning.
