The Adventures of Uncle Jimmy

Uncle Jimmy's level head and hard won wisdom places him in the center of his family's orbit, where he guides them through the rough patches and wild rides of impetuous youth.
The Adventures of Uncle Jimmy was a serial drama aired in the 40's starring William Farnum. William Farnum (July 4, 1876 in Boston, Massachusetts ?

He made his acting debut at the age of ten in Richmond, Virginia in a production of Julius Caesar, with Edwin Booth playing the title character. His first major success was as the title character of Ben-Hur in 1900 though replacing the original actor Edward Morgan who premiered the character in 1899.
