Neil Posted October 12, 2011 Report Share Posted October 12, 2011 With all the parts she played on television, Miss Esther Cathcart was her greatest role (IMO!). They certainly got their money's worth. Watch this clip and marvel at just how much she brings to the table. She appeared in several Dennis episodes. This one has the added bonus of Alice Pearce as "Miss Tarbell". Whoever did the casting for Dennis was superb. At various times the recurring roles were played by Irene Tedrow, Charles Lane, Williard Waterman (among many others). Be sure to stick it out until the end for a photo montage. Dennis overhears Mr. and Mrs. Wilson having a slight argument about their bridge playing. Dennis repeats these statements, which he doesn't understand to Miss Cathcart and Miss Tarbell who assume the Wilson's are breaking up. This was standard sitcom stuff but very cleverly done here. Each plans to be the first to land him. Watch Mary describe Gale Gordon as a "Greek God" with "shoulders out to here and a waist that's (she stops herself)...and shoulders out the here!" Mary's got such a natural quality about her. She's not usually given this much to do. If there had been a series starring these two, I certainly would have watched it. And don't you miss comedy where someone hides in a clothes rack? And then scoots it across the room?! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
