Movie Of The Week: "My Dear Secretary"
Kirk Douglas stars in this romantic comedy classic as Owen Waterbury, a bestselling novelist who recruits aspiring writer Stephanie 'Steve' Gaylord as his latest of many secretaries. The stars in her eyes fade when she finds she is to work in his apartment with a constant parade of eccentric visitors and slapstick provided by klutzy roommate Ronnie. Moreover, Waterbury's idea of work looks a lot like play, and his interest is less in books than in blondes. When she decides to leave, can he get her back by swallowing his playboy principles and marrying her?
Ch. 9 - Saturday 9 PM

Mario Zirpolo returns to BeLive to present this comedy-centric show interviewing and focusing on comedians and community members from the Cambridge area and beyond. Every week will feature a different performer showcasing improv, sketches, stand-up, music, and storytelling!
