CRAP !
Wrong day of the week !
"Our Gal Sunday," spent twenty-two years in broadcasts on CBS. She had her literary origins in a 1904 Broadway play titled "Sunday" which starred Ethel Barrymore.
In 1937 she was turned into the title character of this long running soap opera.
"Can this girl from a little mining town in the West find happiness as the wife of a wealthy and titled Englishman" as the announcer always asked.

As with many soaps, most of the intrigue occurred in the supporting cast.
