In classic TV there were often versions of legendary movies on the small screen, starring actresses and actors, who were not the star in the movie.

Tell us who starred in the movie and who the star was in the teleplay/TV musical.

(Stick to real classic TV from the '50s through the 60s)

1)Annie, Get Your Gun 

2) Harvey 

3) Meet Me In St Louis 

4) Inherit the Wind

*5) Marty 

*6) Requiem for a Heavyweight 

*TV version came before the movie

4. In the film version, Spencer Tracy plays Henry Drummond (the Clarence Darrow character) and Frederic March is Matthew Brady (William Jennings Bryan character)...in the 1965 tv version, Melvyn Douglas is Drummond, and Ed Begley is Brady.  I've never seen this version, but just based on the leads, it's probably good...I did see a later  tv version with Jack Lemmon and George C. Scott

6. First broadcast as an episode of Playhouse 90...Jack Palance was the washed up boxer, and Keenan Wynn was his manager;  six years later, it was a feature film with Anthony Quinn as the boxer and Jackie Gleason the manager.

1.  Gail Davis played Annie Oakley in a weekly western series, but not in "Annie Get Your Gun".  That was a TV production starring Mary Martin and John Raitt.  I have the soundtrack album.  The movie had Betty Hutton and Howard Keel as the leads.

3.  Jane Powell starred in a TV production of "Meet Me In St. Louis".  Tab Hunter played the boy next door.  Walter Pidgeon and Myrna Loy played the parents and Patty Duke played little sister Tootie.  Those roles in the movie were played by Judy Garland, Tom Drake, Leon Ames, Mary Astor, and Margaret O'Brien, respectively.

Well, I've got 3 people who have two correct answers each.

Shutoo (#4) & Lav (#5) plus each have the correct answer for #6 at the same time. So we'll call that a tie.

And *Miles has correct answers for #1 & #3.

*(Miles, I looked for years for that Mary Martin John Raitt album, but I had to settle for Ethel Merman. LOL)

So since I know we're all good amigos here, I'm going to let the 3 winners decide who's going to go next. I'm no tiebreaker.

Great work here in  Classic TV Land.

We all remember the Batman TV series in the 60's that starred Adam West and Burt Ward.  Do you remember the villains and the actors and actresses who portrayed them?  Some villains were portrayed by more than one person.    Can you name the character pictured as well as the actor or actress playing that character?  Some will be easy, some not so easy.  Give it a try!

Thanks to everyone for playing.  We have them all now.   In response to Chaya's request about celebrities  that the dynamic duo encounter while scaling buildings, here is an interesting video:

 

 

Chaya got the most so she gets to post next.
