Comedy-Drama (1942 - 49)

Agnes Moorehead Lionel BarrymoreWalking down the broad walkways that flank Main Street, you just cannot help but look around and feel overwhelmed by the overall peacefulness that permeates through the boulevards and the avenues. Maybe you might pass by the "Pantry," the town tea room where Toni McCafferty, the Mayor's Secretary, takes her lunch everyday. You might want to take in a play at the Bijou Theater, where every Christmas the Mayor takes time out of his busy schedule in order to play Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

The Mayor, played by Lionel Barrymore, who is the Granduncle of actress Drew Barrymore, is the type of mayor who had a vicious bark but a very mushy heart when confronted with the plight of a stray dog or an orphan. His housekeeper, "Marilly," played by the "Lavender Lady" Agnes Moorehead (famous for her performances in Suspense among many other radio appearances), was the nurturing element of the Mayor's life. But the real joy came when Butch arrived in the Mayor's life. Butch, whose real name is Roscoe Turner, had come to live with the mayor (after the first season) when his mother died and his father went to fight with the Seabees.

Mayor of the Town with Lionel BarrymoreThe stories would circle around the special relationship the Mayor shared with Butch. They were often seen fishing and swimming together at Rock Creek. Marilly would usually, internally, complain about the Mayor's tardiness with his political work, but she knew how much he enjoyed spending time with Butch. She knew that Butch was like the son that the Mayor never had.

So, come on by, in between First and Spring Street, and you will be swept away by the sheer beauty and comfort of this town. The Mayor of the Town is already expecting you!

For other happy hometown tales, see Dr. Christian and Family Doctor.
