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, 1951). Find out about Gleason, Art Carney, Audry 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.
