Lavender, I think you are referring to Jeanne Cagney, sister of James.  She appeared in "Yankee Doodle Dandy", as well as several other films with him.  She served as a fashion commentator on "Queen For a Day" in the 1950's.  Here she is in this clip:

 

I wonder how many of those brands are still around.

Miles you're correct Queen For A Day was the tv show and yes Jimmy's sister Jeanne Cagney did the fashion spot, she was a regular on the show, showing some of the prizes the woman who would be chosen would receive.

Good work and thanks for posting the clip in response to my question :) Your thread

btw- Queen For A Day is now considered the forerunner of reality tv shows!

A perfect dozen for LavenderBlue!  (I actually thought 16 would be tougher!)

Eight remaining...

Thanks Shutoo

LOL- 16 was the first one I recognized! No big deal Me-Tv shows Peter Gunn just watched an episode last night, but I use to watch Peter Gunn when it was first on tv ( shows you how old I am) :D

12. The Bigger Jigger-Mama's Family

18. The Brick-Northern Exposure

Right and right!  How could anyone forget a bar called The Bigger Jigger :)?  The Brick was another I thought might be tough--I had to double check my sometimes-foggy memory of the show...

six left...

Here are a few more.  

#9 - The Eureka Cafe was the name of the cafe run by Dale Evans on "The Roy Rogers Show.  That's where Pat Brady worked, as you all found out in my previous question.

#11 - Doc Magoos was the diner across the street from the hospital on "ER".

#17 - The Warsaw was the bar where Drew Carey and his friends hung out on "The Drew Carey Show".

All right! I knew you'd answer #9 eventually ;)

7. The Shake Shop-The Patty Duke show.

No. 20 Blue's Bar-B-Q is very elusive. I am going to guess Sanford and Son. To generate a clue if nothing else.

7 is correct! Patty even worked there in one episode

 

#20 is the only one left...clues: series ran for 4 years, multiple award nominations; impressive supporting cast (my opinion); this establishment was included in about every episode, a town 'gathering place'

It was indeed--the restaurant was owned by Ossie Davis who played Ponder Blue. I'm not much of a Burt Reynolds fan, but the cast included the talents of Davis,  Charles Durning, Elizabeth Ashley, Hal Holbrook and Michael Jeter. I think a lot of the episodes are on YouTube now.

Thanks for playing everyone!

Lavenderblue, with 12 correct, gets the thread!
