Crocker, Keith THE HONEYMOONERS - Jackie Gleason and Company - America's Most Beloved Television Show History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Clowning
Ok, here is the program I've had the most requests for. Join me for a delightful trip down memory lane as we investigate the career of comic actor genius Jackie Gleason and his entourage with focus paid to the classic series The Honeymooners, which aired from October 1, 1955 to September 22, 1956. Since the final broadcast, the Honeymooners has gone out to countless syndication showings which have resulted in New Years Eve marathon telecasts and festivals. The highlight of this program is a 16mm showing of a rare Honeymooners episode title Hello Mom (which aired December 3, 1955). Find out about Gleason, Art Carney, Audrey Meadows, Joyce Randolf and the behind the scene stories of the show itself. Bound to be a very popular program, so book now! Praise from Edith Kalickstein of Long Beach Public Library regarding THE HONEYMOONERS - Jackie Gleason and Company - America's Most Beloved Television Show: The program was excellent and brought back many memories. I also had a few laughs. Thank you so much for sharing with the Long Beach community. They had such a good time.

Gray, Daniel UFOs and unknown flying objects: an assessment of the unknown History,
Media- Other,
Science
Did you ever see a UFO? Did the United States Government ever investigate the “flying saucer” phenomenon? What about the rumors about Roswell, or a recovered UFO and alien bodies in 1947? What are the general types of UFOs? Are they all discs? Are there aliens? What do they look like? Can life exist on other planets? This presentation is an attempt to answer some of these questions and perhaps to inform young adults about this popular culture subject. Originally created as part of the Summer Reading Program in 2015, or “Spark and Reaction” at Capital Region libraries, this presentation is intended to inform and entertain teenagers ages 13-18. Teachers or librarians can encourage further critical thinking on the subject and direct young adults to research this highly controversial subject. This presentation can be offered during Halloween, or “scary” Halloween parties or fun activities.
$101- $200
Crocker, Keith Lost in Laughter with Laurel & Hardy History,
Media- Film,
Media- Other
In case the Marx Brothers didn’t leave you breathless with laughter, then the antics of Laurel & Hardy will. This classic comedy team, who made the transition from silent to sound films, seems to always tickle the funnybone of America. Long before Abbott & Costello, Laurel & Hardy left audiences laughing in the aisles with their subtle yet sure brand of slapstick and tom foolery. In this loving tribute, we will see one of their classic comedy shorts. And, as always, a biographical overview and memorabilia show will round out the proceedings. Once again, this is a 90 minute program complete with a DVD presentation.
$101- $200
