The Film Detective is honoring Betty White on what would have been her 100th birthday with a 24-hour marathon of her first sitcom, Life with Elizabeth, which ran from 1953 through 1955.
White passed away just days before her 100th birthday. Remembered as the “Queen of Television,” White was known for her starring roles on The Golden Girls (1985-1992), The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970-1977), and Hot in Cleveland (2010-2015). Her life is being celebrated with numerous TV marathons highlighting some of her most well-known roles.
The Film Detective is honoring Television’s “Golden Girl” with an all-day marathon of Life with Elizabeth today, January 17.
The first of many hit sitcoms for Betty White, Life With Elizabeth follows the antics of the charming Elizabeth (Betty White) and her husband Alvin (Del Moore). This hidden gem is remembered as the first series in which White served as producer.
“Betty White was a trailblazer throughout the Golden Age of Television, whose influence will live on for generations to come,” said Phil Hopkins, President of The Film Detective. “Life with Elizabeth is the epitome of Betty’s unmatched wit, as hilarious today as it was in 1953. We are honored to be able to share Life with Elizabeth and hope a whole new audience will be able to discover and enjoy it.”
