Green Acres
Green Acres
In this classic series' premiere episode, New York City attorney Oliver Wendell Douglas (Eddie Albert) satisfies his desire for the simple life by buying a farm, much to the chagrin of his wife, Lisa (Eva Gabor). John Charles Daly narrates the tale!

New York lawyer Oliver Wendell Douglas longs for a simpler way of life. So he buys a farm, sight unseen, and moves there to live off the land, much to the chagrin of his socialite wife, Lisa. The collision of small-town life and Lisa's sophisticated ways -- she insists on wearing full-length gowns and ostentatious jewelry, even on the farm -- provide much of the humor in the show.

Green Acres ran from 1965 - 1971.  This pilot episode originally aired on September 15, 1965.
