The Life of Riley (1953)

The Life of Riley (1953)


Second television version of a successful radio sitcom. The first version, starring Jackie Gleason in the title role of airplane factory worker Chester A. Riley, flopped when it premiered. When the show was brought back to television, William Bendix, who had originated the role of Riley on radio, agreed to reprise his role and the series became a hit.
