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.

You noticed I picked 2 Burt Bacharach songs. 

And I should be ashamed to admit this, but I own two Bobby Darin movie DVDs, of course with Sandra Dee. The one I mentioned above and another one called, Come September.

I shall return with more nostalgia.

Why be ashamed, I love those films and I wish they would show If A Man Answers.I've requested TCM show the film dozens of times over the years and Come September is such a fun film. At least TCM shows Come September every so often.

 Next: This handsome actor appeared in one Hitchcock Hollywood movie.

However he was more associated with television, as he co-starred in 3 classic TV series.

All three were highly successful in different decades.

When you identify this actor, also name his three TV series and the film with Hitch.

Lav, That's it and as usual you're right.

Handsome absolutely describes John Forsythe.  Even his voice on "Charlie's Angels" was handsome.

Lav, your turn and you're going to have to go some to beat that last Bobby question. LOL

Thanks Princess, glad you had a good time with that question :)

A very popular tv  show in the 60's-70's time frame, used a funny line that became somewhat iconic. The idea for the line came from a popular hit song at that time. TV show, the famous line that was used in the show and that hit song that inspired that funny line ???

The wife of George Schlatter, the executive producer of Laugh -In came up with Sock It To Me as a line to be used on Laugh-In after hearing Aretha's hit Respect. At the time I think every guest star on Laugh-In must have used that line on the show. Very good Bagel, it's your thread.

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.

There is at least one instance where two performers who would later play the same role in a long-running TV series appeared together in a movie.

Name the two performers, the TV role they both played, the TV series and the movie they both appeared in.
