  • Notes

    • As mentioned on the show, Art Carney originated the role of Felix Unger in the 1965-1967 Broadway production of Neil Simon's "The Odd Couple." This popular comedy ran for 966 total performances. Studio execs thought Carney wasn't profitable enough, so Jack Lemmon was hired for the 1968 film role. There is also mention of Carney's gift for impressions of famous figures (especially FDR) which is a talent he has previously displayed on What's My Line? Although not mentioned on this episode, it has been said that Carney was hired to fill in for FDR's famous radio "Fireside Chats" (1933-1944) when FDR was ill or absent. - TheAngelTorgo
