- I'm tired of living alone. Personally, I would like to meet the gal who will put the proverbial ring around my nose.
- Our series on TV, "It's a Great Life," seems to be going well, so professionally, I wish 1956 would find me finding enough time to do some of the wonderful film roles I've been offered.
- As a citizen, I hope for more advances in medicine. It will be wonderful when they can cure such diseases as cancer.
It's a Great Life was an early TV show about two ex-GI friends rooming together in a Southern California boardinghouse. The sitcom aired in syndication under the title The Bachelors. William Bishop played Steve Connors for the entire fun of the show. It only ran from 1954-1956, so unfortunately it didn't work out for William.
As far as I can tell, none of poor William's wishes came true. Ironically he died of cancer at age 42 in 1959. Not bad looking either. I wouldn't have minded if he "put the proverbial ring around my nose"!
