What to expect

Ann Sothern stars as underemployed entertainer Maisie Ravier in a radio spin-off of the popular MGM movie series!

MGM produced ten successful Maisie movies from 1939 to 1947 starring gorgeous Ann Sothern as Mary Anastasia O’Connor, a brassy but kindhearted Brooklyn burlesque dancer who went by the stage name Maisie Ravier. Along with the Andy Hardy and Dr. Kildare films, the Maisie franchise generated big returns for MGM. In 1941, Sothern starred in the Lux Radio Theatre adaptation of “Maisie Was a Lady,” which led to her own radio series, The Adventures of Maisie, broadcast on CBS radio from 1945 to 1947, on the Mutual network in 1952, and in syndication from 1949 to 1953. The radio series featured top talent, including Sheldon Leonard, Hans Conried, Lurene Tuttle, Pat McGeehan, Elvia Allman, Sandra Gould, Peter Leeds, Bea Benaderet, and Frank Nelson. The show popularized the 1940s catch phrase “Likewise, I’m sure.” Enjoy sixteen fun-filled comedy adventures of Maisie starring Ann Sothern.
