It has been a while since I “hosted” a trivia contest here at TWTP. Here is one that combines my love of classic tv and musical theatre.

The winner will receive, via email attachment, my “Documenting 2010 Deductions

It is a three-parter –

(1) Who was the original Alice Kramden, to Jackie Gleason’s Ralph, when “the Honeymooners” first appeared as a regular series of skits on the DuMont Network's "Cavalcade of Stars"?

(2) Why did this actress not appear in the actual series, where she was replaced by Audrey Meadows?

(3) What was the subsequent Broadway role, which she repeated in the movie version, for which this actress is best known?

No fair "GOOGLING" now!
Send your answers via email to Put “TWTP Trivia Contest” in the subject line.


PS – Here is a bonus Broadway connection – Who played Trixie on “Cavalcade of Stars” before Joyce Randolph took over the role?

Your post reminded me of an article I read a few years ago about "Trixie" lunching at Sardi's...
