One of our favorite OTR shows is "Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar," so we get a kick out of seeing Bob Bailey (billed as Robert Bailey) playing a con man.
There's a story that Lois, Stan's daughter, visited the set during shooting. She couldn't find her dad at first because he was dressed up as Miss Emily at the time!
The "droF" was very funny, "Hey Ollie, I see a truck." That whole desert scene was classic L&H in my opinion.
Miss Emily's laugh cracked me up.
Also, the attempt to drop the coal on the gangster was very funny...even though I knew what would happen...it was classic L&H.
