"The Abbott & Costello Show" (1953)

Here are two screen grabs from Joyce Compton's brief appearance in an episode of TV's The Abbott and Costello Show. In it, Joyce plays a flirty Southern gal applying for a drivers license, having only about 10-15 seconds of screen time. It is definitely a bit part, and given the episode's date (1953), the role was likely the last acting job she took before taking time off to devote to her nursing career. Later on in the decade, she returned to acting before retiring for good in the early '60s.


  1. Is it on youtube? you should upload it somewhere! please!

  2. Nataniel - I didn't even think about looking. Somebody did post it on YouTube! Joyce appears between 1:40 and 2:00 in the clip:
