    Briefly Lyrical

    You are correct, Bagel. Here is a clip from "Till The Clouds Roll By": Bagel, It's your turn now.

    Briefly Lyrical

    All of the songs for "Mary Poppins" were written by brothers Richard and Robert Sherman. They were the resident songwriters at the Disney studio starting with "The Absent-Minded Professor" and "The Parent Trap" in 1961. If you check their filmography on IMDB, you will find that they were involved in writing music for almost every Disney movie released in the sixties, seventies, and early eighties. Actually, their first work for Disney was a short song recorded by Annette Funicello in 1959. It was called "Tall Paul".

    Do You Know Me?

    You are correct, Lavender. I never saw any resemblance between Liz and June, but apparently MGM didn't worry about that. June, of course, would spend a lot more time with Lassie in the fifties and early sixties. Lavender, it's your turn now.

    Do You Know Me?

    Do you know me? I was a child actress who was in a well known movie made in the 1940's. A sequel was made a couple of years later. In the sequel, some years have passed since the first movie, and now my character is a young woman. The character in the sequel was played by June Lockhart. In another movie around that same time, I played a young girl in the early part of the movie. During the course of the movie, my character ages into young adulthood. The character as a young adult was played by June Lockhart again. So, who am I? What were the movies?

    It's "Let's Go Fly A Kite" from "Mary Poppins".

    Retro Trivia

    When I was in college, we had a young lady in our class whose name I believe was Donna Socket. We also had a guy in class named Robert Toomey. So, of course, we played that old game, if Donna Socket married Robert Toomey, her name would be Donna Socket Toomey. They never did marry each other, but I was hoping they would just so the newspaper wedding announcement would read "Socket-Toomey". Bagel, it's your turn.

    The Name Game

    Raquelle Torres - Arturo, methinks you are a fan of obscure Mexican actresses. Next: Bobbie Gentry Had A Hit With "Ode To Billy _____" + "_____ Willie Winkie" + A Song From Brigadoon" Is "The _________ On The Hill" + Old Heavyweight Boxer "Two-_______ Tony Galento"

    Yes, #10 is Fritz Weaver. #3 #3 guested in practically every TV series from the late fifties until the early eighties. He was in "Planet Of The Apes", both on the big screen and TV. He was in several Clint Eastwood movies. He was in a movie that starred Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. He had a recurring role on "The Doris Day Show", but he was never a regular on any long running TV series. He played many storekeepers, clerks, and salesmen.

    J Pat O'Malley is correct. He was Perkins in the "Spin And Marty" serials on "The Mickey Mouse Club". It was set at the Triple R ranch. No. 6 is not Ida Moore. I believe that this little lady had a recurring role as Barney's landlady on "The Andy Griffith Show". Here are more pictures of #3 and #10. #3 #10. These guys had lengthy careers.

    Right again, Lav. OK folks, there's four left. #2, 3, 6, and 10. For #2 think "Triple R"
  12. MilesArcher


    Correct so far, Lavender and Princess. There are still six remaining. Anyone else have a guess? Here's a hint: For #1, think "chocolate".

    Here are some character actors and actresses who have been in some movies and a whole lot of TV shows. Can you identify them? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

    Retro Trivia

    Yes, Jackie Gleason presented "The Honeymooners" as a recurring feature of the "Cavalcade Of Stars" variety show in the early fifties. Art Carney played Ed Norton, Joyce Randolph played Trixie Norton, and veteran actress Pert Kelton played Alice Kramden. A few years later, "The Hpneymooners" had their own series for a full season of thirty-nine episodes. Nice work, Lavender. It's your thread.

    Retro Trivia

    Before Audrey Meadows played Alice Kramden to Jackie Gleason's Ralph, another actress played Alice on TV with Jackie. Later, when Audrey played the part, this other actress guested as Alice's mother. Who was this other actress?
