Old, well let's not forget
The Texaco Star Theater 1948 - 1955. Was the Milton Berle show then The Texaco Star Theater, then back to the Milton Berle show. Uncle Miltie was the first major star of television and landed a unheard-of contract with NBC for 30 years.
Also The Liberace Show, 1952.
And Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier, 1954, with Fess Parker who later starred in the Daniel Boone show 1964.
And the other ex-vaudevillian
who "dethroned" Uncle Miltie, Phil Silvers as Sgt. Bilko.
the Sgt Bilko half hour series 1955-1959 were great and I watched almost all of them as well as most of Milton Berle live antics. I believe he took more falls than our current Jackie Chan. Nat Hikon who created Sgt Bilko previously wrote the radio scripts for Berle. Berle, among his many other awards was named to the Guinness Book of World Records for the greatest number of charity performances made by a show-business performer. Phil Silvers with his Sgt Bilko as well as Jackie Gleason with his 'Ralph' were great shows after the reign of Berle.
Speaking of the Army's motor pool Sgt Bilko, I don't think anyone has mention McHales Navy TV comedy series 1962-1966 with Ernest Borgnine as a PT skipper. Some people may not be aware, but he was actually in the US Navy for 10 years getting out in 1945 with the rank of Chief Petty Officer.
I didn't know that about Borgnine.
IMO the show was derivative and a waste of his talents. If John Kennedy married Sgt Bilko the offspring would be lame humor.
with Frank Lovejoy as the tough PI with the soft heart.
Ernie Kovacs' specials, with the Nairobi Trio.
ABC evening news with John Cameron Swayze. (Step back, Cronkite, Swayze's on.)
Ralph Bellamy in Man Against Crime.
Arch Oboler's Lights Out.
i don't remember the names
so possibly already mentioned....
the US cavalry officer who was court martialed and had his sword broken in two
the spy in a phone booth
a western series with richard boone/clint walker
ah! i-spy, richard? culp and bill cosby
Cavalry officer's name...
In the TV series, Chuck Connors played the role of Jason McCord, who was kicked out and ran about the west with the broken saber. BTW, don't try breaking one over your knee at home (grin).
The spy in the phone booth you remember may be the opening credits od Get Smart. Richard Boone western may have been Have Gun, Will Travel (wire Palladin San Francisco).
yup, jason mc'cord and the clint walker was
Norman Eugene "Clint" Walker (born May 30, 1927) is an American actor best known for his cowboy role as "Cheyenne Bodie" in the TV Western series, Cheyenne
if he's still alive, he's hitting 80+....
