CLASSIC CLIP: Merry Christmas From The Bell Family

In 1968, Lee Phillip Bell welcomed her husband, Bill, and sons Billy (age 6) and Bradley (age 4 with his tongue out above, now executive producer and head writer of THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL), as guests on THE LEE PHILLIP SHOW, her hugely popular local Chicago talk show that ran for years. Watch the segment below which was taped just before Lauralee Bell was born.

And here are the Bells 35 years later. Lauralee Bell (left) with her son, Christian, parents, Bill and Lee, and daughter, Samantha, who took part in a day long Toy Drive to benefit Toys for Tots at FAO Schwarz at The Grove on December 12, 2003.


  1. I remember this show from my Chicago childhood, Roger!

    WBBM-TV/Channel 2 (Chicago's CBS-owned station) aired local news from 12:00 Noon until 12:15 P.M., then aired The Lee Philip Show from 12:15 P.M. until 12:30 P.M. As The World Turns then aired live from 12:30 to 1:00 P.M. Mondays Through Fridays for many years.

    This clip brings back wonderful memories, Roger--Thanks!
