      [COLOR=#ff0000]Here’s another game that I thought might be fun. Classic TV! The idea is to see how many classic tv shows we can think of. I define classic tv as any tv show before 1982. Oh yea try not to repeat any!

      I’ll start:

      1. Emergency![/COLOR]

      How about something from years ago, Like Highway Patrol with Broderick Crawford. Anyone remember Laramie or Laredo classic westerns, I can remember quite a few, one when I was young was Sky King & lets not forget Roy Rogers.

      FYI
      Television in South Africa was only introduced in 1976, and then it was only 1 channel for a couple of hours a night,….. it did increase overtime though. The only available shows except the news were American shows as the British had sanctions against South Africa because of Apartheid.

      The Ed Wynn TV show was a variety comedy series starring the delightful and foolishly funny legend of comedy … Ed Wynn. Its popularity drew a seemingly never-ending list of famous guest stars willing to get ridiculous by participating in Ed’s skits.

      October-December of 1949: Thursday nights on CBS from 9:00 to 9:30 PM
      January-March of 1950: Saturday nights on CBS from 9:00 to 9:30 PM

From December 17, 1948 to March 7, 1949, Morey Amsterdam was the emcee at a nightclub located in Times Square on the CBS network. In April of 1949, the series moved to the Dumont network and the setting shifted to another nightclub. Throughout, Morey told jokes, introduced guest acts, and played his cello until the series ended on October 12, 1950!

      The Texaco Star Theater was a variety, comedy series in the grand old tradition of vaudeville as were many of television’s earliest programs. The show was on the air from its first episode on June 8, 1948 until its last show on January 6, 1967. The first year, Milton Berle was only one of several rotating hosts on the Texaco Star Theater. When he took over as permanent host in the second year, the show became so popular that sales of television sets went through the roof! In most cases, these sets were the first ones a family owned so, in a way, Milton Berle was largely responsible for taking television from a “futuristic toy” to a common household item! But even more importantly, the huge number of TV sales convinced the worst “naysayers” of the time that television was the future in entertainment and not just a passing fad. Movie actors, producers, directors, etc. began to realise that television was here to stay.

      Cast Members:

      Milton Berle ……… Host
      Jimmy Durante …….. Host
      Milton Frome ……… Regular (1953-1955)
      Fatso Marco ………. Regular (1948-1952)

      The Tenspeed and Brown Shoe TV show was a crime drama series about an accountant who dreamt of becoming a private eye like his paperback idol, “Mark Savage”. He teamed up with a con-man and “master of disguise” to form a detective agency.

      The You Bet Your Life TV show was actually two programs in one. First, Groucho Marx would “interview” two contestants by asking them questions about their lives. Groucho was truly a master at finding a joke somewhere in just about every answer they gave. After the “joking around” portion of the program, the quiz show would begin. The contestants could win money by correctly answering trivia questions. This process would continue with more pairs of contestants and the pair that won the most money would get a bonus round.

      Cast Members:

      Groucho Marx …….. Host
      George Fenneman ….. Announcer
      Marilyn Burtis …… Secret Word Girl

      Trivia:

      You Bet Your Life aired on TV from October of 1950 to September of 1961.

      The original idea for You Bet Your Life came from some appearances Groucho Marx made on the radio with Bob Hope. Then came the You Bet Your Life radio show that aired from October 5, 1949 through April 28, 1954, coinciding with the TV series for its final 4 years!

      Author William Peter Blatty won $10,000 on the show and said he would use the money to take time off of work to write a novel. The novel he wrote turned out to be “The Exorcist”.

      After his death, Groucho’s children found a letter where he (jokingly) stated that he wanted to be buried on top of Marilyn Monroe! His death got very little attention because he died only three days after the death of Elvis Presley.

      In the final season, the series’ title was changed from “You Bet Your Life” to “The Groucho Show”. The only other change was that the Duck was not always used to bring down the secret word. It might be a pretty girl and one time it was even Groucho’s brother Harpo.

      There were two rather unsuccessful attempts to revive the show. Buddy Hackett hosted a syndicated version in 1980 and Bill Cosby tried in in the early 1990s.

      During the summer months, reruns of You Bet Your Life were shown and they were called “The Best of Groucho”.

      The Adventures Of Ozzie and Harriet TV show was a 30 minute family comedy series on ABC about the life adventures of Ozzie & Harriet Nelson and their sons Ricky & David. While there were scripts written to give some order to the filming, what audiences saw was pretty much the real lives of the Nelson Family.

      Actually, the more tv shows I remember, the more I realize (uncomfortably)that I watched a lot of tv down through the years. But then, I was also very busy with schoolwork, home chores, hobbies, gardening, a part-time job as a teen, lots of volunteer work, lots of outdoor sports activities, later raising a family. Still, I don’t feel I watched too much tv then. And I watch almost none now. It’s just that I REMEMBER what I watch.

      This topic is actually quite therapeutic. GBS affected my memory badly, but stuff is coming back to me now. There are still a lot of things that are just “out of reach”, but the brain network is still working away, and I hope to get them back someday. Anything to do with numbers, or comprehension of directions still beats me. I just can’t remember figures or cope with directive details. I need to reload my computer, but am scared I won’t know how to do it, though I’ve written out some of the instructions.

      More tv shows: Profile and Top of the Morning (for those of you on the Canadian prairies); also, David and Goliath (I loved that one).

      The Millionaire TV show was a drama series about an ultra-rich benefactor who has his private secretary present total strangers with $1 Million tax free! The lucky recipients were not allowed to tell anyone (except their spouse) how they got the money, how much they got or from where it came. If they violated that oath, they would have to return the money. It was exciting to see how the instant wealth changed the person’s life.

      Cast Members:

      Marvin Miller ……. Michael Anthony
      Paul Frees ………. John Beresford Tipton (Voice)

      Trivia:

      It’s important to remember that in the mid-1950s, one million dollars was an absolutely huge sum of money. Those were the days of penny candy and nickel sodas. It was the equivalent of someone winning a mega-lottery today!

      Marvin Mueller became very identified with his role as Michael Anthony, the fellow you wanted to see when you opened your door! For a while, instead of giving autographs to his fans, he would present them with a check made out for “One Million Dollars Worth Of Luck”! Marvin also won Grammys in 1965 and 1966 for his recitations of Dr. Seuss stories.

      The face of the ultra-rich benefactor, “John Beresford Tipton” was never seen during the entire series! Each episode began with Mr. Tipton sitting in the den of his mansion handling pieces of a chess set. He would call for Michael Anthony and hand him the name of that week’s lucky new millionaire! All the audience ever saw of Tipton was the back of his head or his hand as he passed the name to Anthony.

      Paul Frees made a career out of his voice. Prior to doing the voice of multi-millionaire “John Beresford Tipton” on “The Millionaire”, he did many popular radio programs including, “The Green Lama (1949)” and the “Escape Radio Show (1947-1954)”. Many years later, he would even participate in one of the few attempts to bring drama back to radio as the narrator for “Bradbury 13”. Some of his other more well-known voices included Boris Badenov on the cartoon series, “Rocky, Bullwinkle, & Friends”, Inspector Fenwick on “Dudley Do-Right” and Ludwig Von Drake, the professor duck from Walt Disney Productions. He could vary his voice so widely that he even once starred in a show titled, “The Speaker” where he played ALL the parts. He also did re-dubs for actors that either had foreign accents or when they “flubbed” a line.

      The 21 Beacon Street TV show was a 30 minute detective drama series on NBC about a private investigator who tackled the toughest cases that the police department hadn’t been able to solve using the most up-to-date technologies and gadgets. He got help from a law student, a master of disguise, and from his secretary.

      21 Beacon Street Cast Members:

      Dennis Morgan …………….. Dennis Chase
      Joanna Barnes …………….. Lola
      Brian Kelly ………………. Brian
      James Maloney …………….. Jim

      21 Beacon Street Trivia:

      21 Beacon Street was a summer replacement series for The Ford Show on NBC during the summer of 1959.

      The series obviously took place in a large city but the city’s name was never mentioned!

      21 Beacon Street was the address of detective Dennis Chase’s office.

      Dennis Chase was different from most TV detectives. He simply determined who the bad guy was and then sent the cops out to pick him up. He never actually pursued a criminal himself.

      In a rare move, every episode of 21 Beacon Street was rerun on ABC in the second half of the 1959/1960 season!

      Due to its use of 1950s “high tech” gadgetry and an expert in disguise, 21 Beacon Street is often referred to as a forerunner of the series, “Mission Impossible”.

      The Our Miss Brooks TV show, like many other comedy series of the day, began on the radio in 1948. It was a comedy about a wise-cracking, spinster English teacher at Madison High School who yearns for love with Philip Boynton, a Biology teacher. She also had lots of trouble with the Principal. She was generally depressed about her lot in life and yet she joked about it in ways that kept the audience laughing throughout each episode. In the fourth season, the high school got torn down to make way for a highway project. Miss Brooks started teaching at a nearby private school and most of the cast from the first three seasons continue to appear. One new cast member (Gene Barry) adds a new element as Miss Brooks new love interest. The difference is … this time the guy isn’t shy and pursues her!

      Cast Members:

      Eve Arden ……………. Connie Brooks
      Richard Crenna ……….. Walter Denton
      Gale Gordon ………….. Osgood Conklin
      Robert Rockwell ………. Philip Boynton
      Leonard Smith ………… Stretch Snodgrass
      Jane Morgan ………….. Mrs. Margaret Davis
      Gloria McMillan ………. Harriet Conklin
      Mary Jane Croft ………. Miss Daisy Enright
      Virginia Gordon ………. Mrs. Martha Conklin #1
      Paula Winslowe ……….. Mrs. Martha Conklin #2
      Nana Bryant ………….. Mrs. Angela Nestor #1
      Jesslyn Fax ………….. Mrs Angela Nestor #2
      Joseph Kearns ………… Superintendent Stone

      Trivia:

      The antics of Connie Brooks began on the Our Miss Brooks radio show with its first audition show on April 9, 1948. That program ran for approximately 375 episodes over 10 years! In fact, it aired alongside the TV series for its entire run and the radio show even continued for another year thereafter! There was also an Our Miss Brooks stage play in 1950 and a movie in 1955.

      In the 1955 movie, Miss Brooks finally got her proposal from Mr. Boynton and married him!

      Miss Brooks had a cat named, “Minerva”.

      Eve Arden’s real name was Eunice Quedens. Deciding that she needed a stage name, she chose it while shopping for cosmetics and spotting the names “Evening in Paris” and “Elizabeth Arden”. She was so accepted in her role as Connie Brooks that she was often asked to speak at PTA and other educational meetings. Dozens of High Schools even tried to hire her as a teacher! After this series ended, she starred in another very briefly called, “The Eve Arden Show (1957)”. After that, other than guest spots, we didn’t see much of Eve until 1967 when she appeared on the series, “The Mothers-In-Law” starring Kay Ballard for 2 years. She made a couple of TV movies after that and appeared in her unforgettable role as Principal McGee in the 1978 movie, “Grease”.

      Before the Twilight Zone (1958)
      Rod Serling wrote a teleplay intending for it to be the pilot episode of a new series called The Twilight Zone. Although it ended up airing on a different show, Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse, it is still considered the pilot episode of The Twilight Zone and has even been adapted as one of the The Twilight Zone radio-show episodes.
