#7 is the Burns And Allen Show.  Here is the iron deer episode. 

 

 

Did you notice that the mailman is named Mr. Beasley, the same name as the mailman in the "Blondie" comic strip?

I didn't know that--in the films, Blondie's mailman always got knocked down before the titles ☺️

3. the sale of the bible led to big changes for the minister of the church

13.  the blouse was a gift, and the lady it was given to was REALLY not the type for a blouse with 'ooh la la' on it

14. the shoes, unfortunately, fell apart

I have to admit, I'm surprised 3 and 14 are still unanswered. Didn't think they'd be stoppers (different strokes, I guess...3 is one of my favorite tv comedies of all times...)

okay...let's finish his off:

3.  The wife of the title character buys the bible at an auction...her hubby intends to take it back, but ends up having a professional relationship with the minister...and the minister decides to leave the church.

14.  The lead sells the shoes door-to-door (?)...unfortunately, they came from a funeral supply place, and body heat makes them fall apart.

Time to wrap this up...here's Emily Hartley with the antique bible that Bob 'tries' to return...The Bob Newhart Show S02e04 - Somebody Down Here Likes Me - video  Dailymotion

I thought that would be easy...go figure  (probably because I've seen every episode so many times..maybe I need therapy)..I thought the stuffed horse would be tough.

 

Thanks everyone for playing!

Peebs wins this one...and gets the next post!

Thanks, shutoo!  I appreciate your quizzes, they are always a good challenge!

I'll leave this open for now.  I'll try to come up with something.

Let's give this a try.

Identify the classic movies by their tagllne from posters/advertising:

 

1.  They're young, they're in love, and they kill people

2.  This is Benjamin.  He's a little worried about his future.

3.  This weekend the didn't play golf.

4.  From the moment they met it was murder.  

5 The story of a man who was too proud to run.

6.  When you deal a fast shuffle, love is in the cards.

7.  The bride gets the thrills, the father gets the bills.

8.  A man went looking for America, and he couldn't find it anywhere.

9. On every street in every city in this country there is a nobody who dreams of being a somebody.

10. Sister, sister, oh so fair, why is there blood all over your hair? You'd better be shockproof before you dare find out!

11.  You'll believe a man can fly.

12.  How did they ever make a film of _______?

13.   Beware the stare that will paralyze the will of the world!

14.  When you've seen it all, you'll swear there's never been anything like it! If you come in five minutes after this picture begins, you won't know what it's all about!

Thanks.  That was a fun question.  Now, we all remember game shows on TV when we were a bit younger.  Do you remember the hosts?  Here is a group of photos of game show hosts from the past.  Can you name them, as well as at least one show that each of them hosted?  Some of them hosted several game shows, but one will do.
