1. Mary Tyler Moore Show - it was Phylliss' house and Mary and Rhoda lived there.

5. It's either  The Jeffersons or Famiy Affair I think, I'll guess Family Affair ( lol I think it's The Jefferson's too) if I saw the entrance I'd know

7. The Addams Family

1 & 7 are correct.

#5 are great guesses.  Hint:  This show's character took the "L" to get home from the office.

Fausterlitz   the  answer  to  number  four  is  Clu  Gulager . It  is unrealistic  to   know all  these  answers  in  your  head.  Since  you  answered  more questions  right ,  you  are the winner  and  the  thread  is  yours.  Thanks  to  Fausterlitz ,  Peebs  and  Everybody

Sorry, cinemaman, I accidentally typed the character's name again instead of the actor!

-----------------

Next:

The many "mystery guests" who appeared on the TV program What's My Line? resorted to various strategies for hiding their often familiar speaking voices.  Can you identify each of these well-known performers from the descriptions below?  (I'll post video links for each relevant episode once everyone has guessed.)

1.)  Much-beloved vaudeville comedian.  Usual stage voice was rather high-pitched and giggly.  On WML, played short glissando notes on the violin instead of speaking (upwards for yes, downwards for no).

2.)  Statuesque, somewhat husky-voiced American actress. In her first appearance on WML, answered in French in a higher-pitched, coquettish voice.

3.)  Famously unconventional male sex symbol with a penetrating gaze. On WML, answered by whistling (again sliding pitch up or down).

4.)  Much-beloved, slightly gawky yet attractive, multi-award-winning comedienne, mostly on TV.  Also skilled in dramatic roles.  In her first appearance on WML, answered in an extremely high-pitched squeak.

5.)  Multi-talented actor-singer-dancer (etc.) with many equally well-known friends.  In his first appearance on WML, answered in a variety of different voices (e.g., gangster, Jimmy Stewart, James Cagney).

6.)  Much-beloved comic actress who died tragically young.  In her first appearance on WML, answered mostly in a low, gruff male voice.

7.)  Tall, suave American actor with a distinctively refined speaking voice, most often cast in a particular film genre.  In his first appearance on WML, answered with delightful humor and gusto, singing or speaking in (mostly quite idiomatic) French.

8.)  Strikingly beautiful red-headed actress, not born in the U. S.  On WML, she somewhat confusingly was described as an "American actress" (she in fact held dual citizenship in both the U.S. and her native country).  Answered questions in a sweet, Southern voice.

Some guesses of mine:

1.  Ed Wynn ?

3.  Robert Goulet ?

5.  Sammy Davis Jr. ?

7.  Vincent Price ?

Those were some good guesses, MilesArcher!  1, 5, and 7 are all correct.  Hint for #3:  the audience roared with laughter when one of the panelists asked, "Do you have blond, curly hair?" (his whistling apparently made her think of Harpo Marx).

Update:  the only remaining mystery guest to be identified is #3.  If either Peebs or Miles guesses correctly, they will break their current tie and achieve victory.  🙂

Repeating hint for #3:  the audience roared with laughter when one of the panelists asked him, "Do you have blond, curly hair?" (his whistling apparently made her think it might be Harpo Marx).

This is a tough one.  You mentioned that the audience laughed when he was asked if he had blond curly hair.  So, is it the bald Yul Brenner?

We have a tie!  Thanks to Lavender and Miles for playing, I'll leave it to you to decide who posts the next quiz. 

Miles, I hope you are safe and didn't get too much damage from Henri.  Yikes!
