Comedy / Drama
Cast: Patricia Ryan and Richard Kollmar
Claudia and David played by Patricia Ryan & Richard Kollmar, was a drama based on the Redbook magazine stories by Rose Franken and William Brown Meloney.
It began as a skit on the Kate Smith Hour June 6, 1941; a month later, it became a summer series.
Claudia fell in love with David during her teen years. Much of the conflict within the program, derived from the possessiveness of her mother, the 'everyday drama' focusing on counting pennies, balancing the cheque book and the repairing of household items.
The Claudia & David skits on the Smith show developed the romance ; the couple would actually wed at 'City Hall' in the second regular episode, July 11, 1941.
Depicted here are 82 Episodes plus 1 audition from 1947-1948 season.
