Harris Against The World aired from October 1964 until January 1965 on NBC.

Jack Klugman played Alan Harris, a plant superintendent at a huge movie studio who lived at 90 Bristol Court with his wife Kate ( Patricia Barry), and his 2 children Deedee and Billy ( Claire Wilcox, David Macklin).Helen and Norm ( Fay DeWitt, Sheldon Allman), were their friends and Cliff Murdock ( Guy Raymond), was the building handyman. Coping with life was a full time job for Alan. His bosses,debts, taxes, and people in general always seemed to be one up on him. His wife was a champion spender who always managed to find him part-time jobs to work at in the spare time he didn't really have. But much as he complained about almost everything and everybody, Alan was really an old softie at heart.

Harris Against The World was the middle component of a series of 3 comedies that ran from 7:30-9:00 on Monday evenings under the blanket title 90 Bristol Cout, which referred to the fashionable apartment block where all 3 shows were set. Karen ran from 7:30-8:00 and Tom, Dick, And Mary from 8:30-9:00.

Here is Patricia Barry's Obituary from The New York Times

Patricia Barry, Actress on TV Since Its Early Days, Dies at 93


Patricia Barry, a prolific television actress who appeared in more than 100 series and movies, beginning in the medium's earliest days, died on Tuesday at her home in Los Angeles. She was 93.

Her death was confirmed by her publicist, The Associated Press said.

Ms. Barry's career began in the 1940s, when she won a Rita Hayworth look-alike contest; the victory led her to Hollywood and a contract with Warner Brothers.

After three uncredited screen roles (as nurse, showgirl and music student ), she finally got a character name in The Beast With Five Fingers, a 1947 horror film remembered best for scenes in which a dead pianist's disembodied hand, up to no good, creeps its way around an Italian mansion.

Ms. Barry, then billed as Patricia White, made more than 20 movies over the next four years. In 1950 she discovered the new medium television, and vice versa.

Her first appearance was as a guest on The Philco-Goodyear Television Playhouse, in an episode about Vincent van Gogh. Over the next decade she appeared in series as different as Playhouse 90 (she was Jordan Baker in a version of The Great Gatsby ) and 77 Sunset Strip.

She had a particularly good year in 1964, when she appeared in three feature films: Send Me No Flowers (with Rock Hudson and Doris Day), Kitten With a Whip (with Ann-Margret) and Dear Heart (with Glenn Ford). That fall she was cast as Jack Klugman's wife in a new sitcom, Harris Against the World. When the series was canceled after 13 episodes, she returned to a busy schedule on series television.

Her soap-opera period began in 1972, when she appeared on several episodes of Days of Our Lives. She was later on All My Children (1981) and Guiding Light (1985-87).

She also acted in television movies, among them First, You Cry (1978), in which Mary Tyler Moore played a newswoman with breast cancer; Crowhaven Farm (1970), a horror tale about a coven of witches; and Bogie (1980), about Humphrey Bogart.

Ms. Barry also still did the occasional film, among them Sea of Love (1989), with Al Pacino, as a lonely older woman who answers a personals ad.

She may be best remembered for Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983), in which she was the terrified, understandably eager-to-please mother whose little boy can wish people out of existence and does, whenever someone annoys him.

She had appeared on two episodes of the original Twilight Zone series as well, as a genie with a mild-mannered new master and as a glamorous single woman who unwittingly drinks an all-too-effective love potion. Her last film was Delusional (2014), a thriller about a mental patient.

Patricia Allen White was born on Nov. 16, 1922, in Davenport, Iowa, the daughter of a physician. She graduated from Stephens College in Missouri, where she studied theater with the actress Maude Adams.

She began her career doing summer theater in New Hampshire and made her Broadway debut in 1945 in a short-lived comedy, Calico Wedding. In 1950 she married Philip Barry Jr., a producer, whom she met during a production of his father's play Holiday.

Her survivors include two daughters, Miranda Barry and Stephanie Barry Agnew, and two grandchildren. Mr. Barry died in 1998.

Ms. Barry was a founding member and a past president of Women in Film, a nonprofit that promotes gender parity on and off screen. She also ran a business in Southern California, leasing fully furnished houses to visiting stars and directors.
