I'll take a crack at this one.

1.  Elroy "Crazylegs" Hirsch.  The movie is "Crazylegs" from 1953 where he plays himself.

2.  Roosevelt Grier had a recurring role on "Daniel Boone", which starred Fess Parker.

3.  Roman Gabriel and Merlin Olsen appeared in "The Undefeated".

4.  Fred Dryer  starred in "Hunter". 

5.  This is a tough one.  One time Rams cheerleader Jenilee Harrison was a replacement for Suzanne Somers on "Three's Company".  She was later replaced by Priscilla Barnes.

Thanks, Peebs!

Next (a related question):

in which two Woody Allen films does he reference A Streetcar Named Desire?  (In one case directly, in the other case conceptually)

Blue Jasmine (2013) takes the basic premise of Streetcar with Cate Blanchett's troubled, pretentious and formerly well-off Jasmine coming to visit her sister and brother in law.  

There's a scene in Sleeper where Woody Allen's character thinks he's Blanche and so Diane Keaton acts out the Marlon Brando part.  The scene ends with Allen quoting the kindness of strangers speech as they sedate him.

Yes, exactly! Nice work + back to you, Peebs...

Thanks Fausterlitz!

Next:  Here's a music related one for you. 

This person is best known as a host of a kids tv show.  One of his favorite gags was getting a pie in the face.  He claimed to have been hit with over 20,000 pies. In addition to hosting his kids show which started in 1953 in Detroit, this person also hosted a nighttime show.  He would often have jazz musicians perform, with Detroit having over 20 jazz clubs at the time. Charlie Parker, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday and Stan Getz all performed on his show.  Some of the footage from his show was even featured on the Ken Burns documentary on jazz. Can you name this silly kids host who for a time also hosted a late night program featuring jazz greats?

Next: 

This well-known movie star actress of the Golden Era had two sisters who also appeared in films of that time.

One sister had a career with more than 100 films, which spanned silent movies, through the Golden Era to Classic TV. She mostly appeared in "B" movies, notably one popular Charlie Chan entry, but also in a Warner Brothers "A" masterpiece. 

Another sister, appeared in "B" movies in the Golden Era too, co-starring once with John Wayne and with Bela Lugosi. But she quit working in the early forties and appeared in only around 40 films. 

When you identify these three sisters, you can also list a favorite film for the movie star sibling.

Loretta Young,  her sisters were Georgiana Young and Sally Blane ???

You got it mostly right. 

Polly Ann Young was her sister who did the 40 movies. 

Georgiana was a half sister, who appeared in 3 movies. 

But you have earned this thread.

BTW--It's good to see you up so late at night because I still have a "Husband and Wife" question on this page that I know you can answer, if you've got the time.

Thanks
