Here is JOAN CRAWFORD IN THE LUCY SHOW IN 1968.  Lucy and Viv mistakingly believe that Joan Crawford is penniless.  It is a very funny episode to watch.

 

(featuring Joan Crawford and Vivian Vance) Lucy's car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. Lucy and Viv, who is visiting Lucy in Hollywood on vacation, hike to the nearest house to use the phone to call an auto club. The house they stumble upon just happens to belong to Joan Crawford, the movie star.

In the first season of Cheers 1983, the fabulous GLYNIS JOHNS played Diane Chambers mother, who implored Diane to get married or else her she would lose her inheritance.  This is a gem that showed Ms. John's is a master in comedy.

SOMEONE SINGLE, SOMEONE BLUE

EPISODE:

 

Episode 20
v1.dDsxNTY2Njc7ajsxODA5MTsxMjAwOzYwMDs0NTA

EPISODE INFO

Glynis Johns guest stars as Helen Chambers, the mother of Diane (Shelley Long). Sweeping majestically into Cheers, Helen dolefully announces that Diane must marry within 24 hours or lose her share (and her mother's) of her late father's estate. Helpful Sam (Ted Danson) agrees to a quickie wedding ceremony, secure in the belief that he can just as quickly revert to bachelorhood -- or can he? Future semi-regular Paul Willson appears as Gregg (rather than his familiar role as the habitually "left out" Paul).

Then there are all the classic stars who played villains on Batman.  Anne Baxter and Vincent Price come to mind.

Almost 30 years after she appeared in "King Kong," Fay Wray appeared as herself in an April 1961 episode of "The Real McCoys." The CBS sitcom starred the three-time Academy Award winner Walter Brennan as Amos McCoy.

And Milton Berle. Louie the Lilac was my favorite Batman villain as a kid.

I used to confuse Rennie with Alan Napier.   You're not helping!   (ha ha).

But really it wasn't until I saw both of them in a few films (E.g. Rennie in The Day the Earth Stood Still and Napier in The Uninvited, etc..),  that I realized these were two different actors.
