Topper - 1953-1955

Topper with Leo G. Carroll

The Topper television show aired for two seasons on the CBS television network from 1953-1955, and starred Leo G. Carroll as Cosmo Topper, with Lee Patrick as the air-head Henrietta - fans of old movies may remember Lee Patrick as Humphrey Bogart's secretary in The Maltese Falcon. Topper was a stuffy banker who had two wealthy customers that died and came back as ghosts that only Topper could see and hear. The ghost husband was played by Robert Sterling and the ghost wife was played by Anne Jeffreys. Anne was always introduced at the beginning of each episode as 'The ghostest with the mostest.' And the announcer would claim at the beginning that there are only three people in the world that can see the ghosts . . . me, and you, and Cosmo Topper. Every week they try to get stuffy Topper to loosen up and have some fun, and every week it wound up in hilarious happenings.
