HERE COME THE NELSONS (movie 2/23/52)
Directed by Frederick de Cordova
Story by Ozzie Nelson, Donald Nelson and William Davenport
Based on the radio show The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet

CAST - Ozzie Nelson, Harriet Nelson, David Nelson, Ricky Nelson, Duke (Sheldon Leonard), Joe Randolph (Jim Backus), H.J. Bellows (Gale Gordon), Charlie Jones (Rock Hudson)

The scene opens with the exterior of the beautiful Nelson house, complete with elm tree and bay window. The film takes us to a place where apparently the TV show never did, Ozzie's job. He is an associate with an advertising company. He's given a job that he can't quite seem to do on his own, coming up with an advertising campaign that will promote a women's underwear company. Misunderstandings add to the comedy, as well as the Nelson's sons, David and Ricky.

This funny situation comedy movie bridged the gap between the Ozzie and Harriet radio show and television's longest running situation comedy, Ozzie and Harriet.
