    Find the Movie Star in Classic TV

    Thanks, 'lana. Late 1950s anthology of 30-min episodes. A handfull of rotating performers in the lead roles. An established young actor, on his way to rising higher in the business. The progrem carries the name of the sponsor. Plot: A party in a (woman) friend's apartment. This young man is busily obnoxious; interfers with the serving of refreshments, etc. He answers the doorbell and lets in a guest, then steps outside before the door closes again. The bell resumes ringing; the hostess answers and finds that he has stuck a wire into the doorbell button to hold it down. Stuff funny to him, but not to others. The TV is on, with a news report about a current homicide case. He calls the station and, claiming to be the killer, spins some nonsense about how the crime went down. The exasperated hostess and a couple of guests make him hang up, and they begin to scold him. The doorbell rings again, and its the police. They have monotored the call to the news station, and they want to talk to the caller. He is obliged to go with them to the police station. ???

    Who Said This ?

    From a published work: Ethel Merman once said to me, "_____, your wife surely loves you." "She's pretty noncommittal about showing it," I grumbled. (My wife) yawned. "I guess I'll have to throw myself in front of a streetcar to prove it, Ethel." "There are no streetcars anymore," I pointed out in my usual literal fashion. Ethel replied, "They go uphill in San Francisco." I've been pondering that one. ???

    Filling in the blanks: Title: *Rogers And Hammerstein's Cinderilla* Rising star: Julie Andrews 'lana, I tried a different research technique based on the fact that a specific date was named. It involved Ask.com, and it led to Wikkipedia, but I got there. And I realized that I saw that performance. I didn't remember La Julie, but did recall Edie Adams as Fairy Godmother, and Kaye Ballard as a really ditsy Stepsister.

    TVMovie/Miniseries Trivia

    Correct again, and your thread again. This was a downbeat story, compared to some in the genre. Contrast Peter Lawford's demenior in this story with his upbeat performance in the orighional *Ocean's Eleven* . And Peter Falk's character won sympathy, but did not win his father's secure financial safety. The Premium Channels are unlikely to pick it up; I just hope that Lifetime or LMN will discover it and run it occasionally. Edited by: cmvgor on Mar 5, 2011 6:37 PM

    Quiz: What movie is this line from?

    Final conversation, same movie: _Her_: "I'm not afraid of you, Marty!" _Him_: (Laughs) "Well, maam, If I see him, I'll sure give him the message." (These two are just a couple of feet apart, in different rooms, with a wall between them. She has shot him, and he's dying. He knows, as she does not, that "Marty" is already dead -- because he killed and buried Marty.)

    In the earlier series, the two actors played brothers, usually having the lead part in seperate episodes, but sometimes appeareing in an episode together. In the 1970s re-teaming, the star was a private detective, and the guest was the husband of one of his clients.
