American Family Robinson - Pgm 47

February 9th, 2017

And now another previously lost episode of “American Family Robinson”, a rare continuing propaganda serial, first broadcast in fall 1934, funded by the National Association of Manufacturers to combat FDR’s New Deal policies.  You can read background about this controversial series in my original 2009 post on the show.

In program 47 of the series, Windy Bill has to become “investor” to win Luticia’s hand in marriage.   Luke and his wife try to caution Luticia about her two suitors.  To compete with Windy Bill, Gus decides to become an investor, too, and goes to Luke for help.
