From September 10, 1951, Bob Hope and Lucille Ball star in the radio adaptation of their 1950 film Fancy Pants, which in turn was an adaptation of the thrice-filmed Ruggles of Red Gap (from the 1915 novel by Harry Leon Wilson.

Hope is an actor impersonating an English butler and is hired by woman to help refine her husband and daughter, with Ball playing the daughter.  Complications ensue when the town believes Hope is actually an English earl.  And then there's the impending visit from FDR.  Adapted by S. H. Barnett and directed by Earl Ebi, Fancy Pants is an enjoyable little comedy.

Check it out.
