Dick Van Dyke Show creator Carl Reiner provided the witty script and one of the cleverest trailers to be run on Tfh. Garner and Day would reunite on Move Over Darling in roles initiated by Dean Martin and Marilyn Monroe when it was called Something’S Got To Give. »

You know when someone asks if you are familiar with a certain actor, and you recognize the name but can't quite place the face? That was my first impression of Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca. I of course recognized Caesar from a few films, but my knowledge of the duet's history was lacking.
This is also how I approached the Austin Film Society's "History of Television" series last night: familiar, but ready to learn more. This month's screening focused on the 1950-54 television show Your Show of Shows, starring Caesar, Coca, Carl Reiner (The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Thrill Of It All) and Howard Morris (The Andy Griffith Show, Splash).
When I walked into the screening room, I was surprised to discover I was one of the younger attendees there. Even though I was not entirely familiar with the actors, I'd heard of the show and knew others who were familiar as well. »

Doris Day and Frank Sinatra made only movie together, Gordon Douglas’ 1954 musical drama Young at Heart, »
