Did You Know?

Quotes:
Ralph Kramden:[visiting in Ireland] You know, I never knew that Jackie Gleason was Irish.
Ed Norton:Oh yeah, I knew it. I read it in a TV magazine once. His whole family came over from Ireland during the potato famine.
Ralph Kramden:Oh.
Ed Norton:In fact, I think they caused it!
Ralph Kramden:That Gleason is a little chubby, isn't he?
Ed Norton:Oh, he certainly is.
[laughs]
Ralph Kramden:That Art Carney put on a few pounds too, you know.

Miami Beach Honeymooners shows, 4 January 2006
Author: altopat3368 from United States

I was in the vocal group through the entire run, some variety and all Honeymooners shows. The only ones rerun were the first season in which they win a trip around the world. Twentieth Century Fox paid the rerun checks on those. The Poor Soul's Christmas was rerun all over the place. The word I have is that ownership of the rest of the tapes (we did, I think, something like 49 shows all together) cannot be proved, and so none of those shows can ever be shown. I'd give a great deal to experience them again. To my knowledge, only one or two of the orchestra are still living--my husband was lead trumpet. Most of the singers and dancers are still around. Marilyn Taylor was NOT around these shows. She and Jackie got together again later.
